For Optimal Health & The Love Of Your Pet: The Stella & Chewy’s difference

Stella & Chewy’s story started in 2003 in a 600 square-foot Brooklyn apartment, where our founder Marie embarked on a mission fueled by love for her dogs, Stella and Chewy. After a miraculous transformation of her sick dog Chewy on a raw diet, Marie realized that how you feed your pet is the most direct way to affect their health. While her kitchen was small, her ambition and love for her dogs was huge. 


Word of Marie’s homemade, raw-inspired pet food spread quickly and what started with a blender and an idea soon grew into a brand synonymous with high-quality, nutritious pet food.

    We must include at least one with every meal or we get the ‘side eye’! Nora is diabetic so we are very particular about her diet AND she is very selective with what she will and will not eat. She MUST have her 2 meals a day to get her insulin so it is imperative we have quality options that she will eat.
