Meet Jenna: the new NorthPoint Pets manager!

Jenna enthusiastically joined our team in early 2021 bringing nearly a decade of pet industry knowledge and experience along with her. She is proud mom to cats Aerie and Spook who are both credited with her interest into pet nutrition. Quickly Jenna realized that there was a lot to be desired for honest, unbiased and accurate information within the industry and she knew she wanted to help change that. Much like the team at NPP she believes in the value individualized diet, fresh food and tailored advice can provide for overall health, regardless of age. She also is the mom to 4 sugar gliders, Crumb, Crosby, Bindi and Gatsby which helps bring additional small animal knowledge to our robust team. When she’s not helping pet parents at NPP Jenna can be found hiking with her husband Adam, horseback riding and painting pet portraits.

We’re adding more freezer space!

It’s no secret that raw food is one of our most popular items, and with good reason! Raw foods help supply additional moisture, vitamins, minerals and more. Many of our customers’ pets enjoy the benefits. If you were ever curious about raw, or wanted to try a sample – just ask!
