About Arin's Good Girl Dog Treats

Arin's Good Girl Dog Treats is a pioneering nonprofit committed to fostering inclusivity and providing meaningful job opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Founded by Arin and her dedicated team, we specialize in crafting delectable, all-natural dog treats in three irresistible flavors: Pumpkin Peanut Butter, Cheese and Turkey Bacon, and Dragon Slayer for fresh breath.

 

Our Mission

At Arin's Good Girl Dog Treats, our mission is two-fold: to produce top-quality, all-natural dog treats that prioritize the health and happiness of our four-legged friends, and to cultivate a more inclusive society by offering career development and employment opportunities to individuals with disabilities. Through our innovative approach, we aim to empower our team members, highlight their capabilities, and foster a more inclusive community.

 

Impact

Since our inception, Arin's Good Girl Dog Treats has made a significant impact on the community. Our Executive Director, Talia Wucherer, recently took the stage at SEED20 to pitch Arin's Good Girl Dog Treats to the community. We were honored to receive the 2nd place People's Choice Award, which came with a prize of $7,000. This recognition underscores the value of our mission and the positive change we're creating.
