Debra has worked in the pet nutrition industry since 2008, as an independent field representative for a holistic pet food company. She's had dogs in her life for more than 20 years, including her current cockapoo companion, Oreo. In 2007, after learning of numerous pet-food recalls, she researched healthier foods for Oreo and was introduced to Life's Abundance pet food by a veterinarian and breeder. She loved the company and its philosophy so much, she decided to join their team. Her mission has become to help animals in need, and to become as educated as possible about pet nutrition and the effects it has on pet health.
Debra also served on the Product Review Board of the National Canine Cancer Foundation. The National Canine Cancer Foundation is committed to finding cures and new treatments for cancer in dogs.
With Debra's experience in both the corporate world, as well as in the pet nutrition industry, she is our Chief Treat and Ingredient Consultant as well as the main business administrator.

His goal is to be as educated as possible regarding industry rules and regulations, and he takes pride in developing the most efficient, safe and sanitary operating procedures for his team.
Rich's love of dogs led him to adopt Keta, a Siberian Husky. She was a true friend who stayed loyal and loving through many of Rich's life's ups and downs. Keta sadly passed away in 2010 at the age of 12 and she is dearly missed, but her picture on our label pays a sentimental tribute to her.

Oreo was our Master Taste-Tester and part-time Floor Cleaner-Upper from the time MoJo's Morsels was established. She was our most eager to please worker, and no matter how long of a day she'd had, she was always more than willing to perform her job duties! Oreo crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2015, and we will always love and miss our sweet and silly pup.
