Mississippi Mutts is a pet supply store that aims to be "your dog's home away from home." Our mission is connecting you with the perfect products with the best benefits for your pet!
I thought up the idea for the business about 12 years ago. Being a long-time pet owner, I had longed to have new opportunities for my pets. I dreamed of opening a dog bakery and started to research what other ways I could cultivate a business. That sprouted an unexpected call to my friend, Barb, in which I exclaimed, "I know what business I want to open!" This marked the beginning of Mississippi Mutts’ creation.
We wanted to bring something into Cape that people could do with their dogs - a place they could go with them. A place where they could get healthy foods, give their dogs a bath in an easier way, and also healthy, fresh bakery treats. Mississippi Mutts is a place where the staff cares and connects with their customers on a personal level. It is a business driven by community and ready to make sure your pet gets the love they deserve.
I opened Mississippi Mutts about 10 years ago. I love dogs and was inspired by the unique relationships they share with humans. My dogs, Murphy and Hazel Mae, keep that inspiration alive everyday. My favorite things we have in the store right now are Chala bags and Canine Couture’s travel mugs. My favorite thing about working at Mutts is getting to know our family of pet owners and their pets. They are like an extended family to me, and it warms my heart when we are able to help keep their pets happy and healthy.
About 12 years ago, at 1:00am, Sherry called me and said she wanted to open a dog bakery and self-serve dog wash. The rest is history. My favorite aspect of Mutts is the bakery. It gives us the chance to be a part of everyone’s fur babies. From weddings to birthdays, and everything in between! I also love helping our customers meet their dogs' and cats' needs; and loving on all of their fur kids! My own fur kid's name is Josie. Her favorite thing in the store has to be the toys.
I have been at the store for over a year now, and I love the job dearly because I get to help customers with their pet product needs, not to mention getting to spend time around dogs all day! Of course I also have my own fur-babies at home: Bentley, Smoke, and Miss Cat. Bentley’s favorite products from the store are bully twists and duck heads from VE Raw Bar.
I’ve moved from a fill-in at Mutts, to a part-time position. I have experience with pet products and pet nutrition with a focus on both raw and holistic products--two things that I love. I’ve had many animals over the years, but recently got a puppy, Taj, and he’s such a joy. So far, Taj loves his Primal Goat's Milk and Raw Bones! I’m thrilled to be here spoiling your fur babies!
