Pets have always been a joy for Haley Elmhorst. As an anxious 12-year-old with Tourette Syndrome, she recalls, "Rabbits were my escape. I could be myself around them." Finding too little advice online, she began to share videos on YouTube with her own tips for bunny care and feeding.
"People who own dogs and cats know the basics, but rabbits are so misunderstood," Haley says. Soon her YouTube Channel, 101Rabbits™, had hundreds and then hundreds of thousands of followers and now nearly 36 million views.
Years later, when an adult diagnosis of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) limited her mobility and job options, Haley decided to open an online store dedicated to selling safe and healthy pet products.
Here at 101Pets, we are still a very small company (Haley is still our only full-time employee). But we are dedicated to only selling safe, healthy and enriching products for pet owners. There are a lot of products out there available that we could be selling. If you look at the big box pet stores (see our review), they have a lot of products that are extremely unhealthy, made with artificial dyes, or unhealthy food ingredients. You won't find those products here. Our mission has always been the same:
101Pets™️ exists to promote healthy and happy pet care. We offer healthy and enriching products for pet owners.
We take you pet's health, comfort and enrichment needs, along with functional needs like cleaning into consideration when we hand-select any product for our shop.
