Growth in 2009

From American Pet Products Association

APPA forecast 4.9% growth in pet spending to $45.4 billion for 2009. "These numbers further demonstrate that people are more willing to sacrifice on themselves before trimming back on their four-legged friends", said Bob Vetere, APPA president. "People want to reward their pets in human terms and even in this economy are still demanding the highest-quality products and services. The pet industry continues to grow at a record pace and has proven to remain strong during times of change, stress and setbacks".

Be part of this growth by offering North Woods Animal Treats to your customers!

What Our Customers Have to Say

Nip n' Toy Cat Toy

"I first discovered you at the sheep shearing festival at Gore Place in Waltham. I bought one ball there (probably 3 or 4 years ago) and its been my cats favorite toy ever since. It's to the point where she knows the sound the bag makes when I open it and comes running. I decided to get another one for her and one for a friends kitten."

"I am writing to express my appreciation of your Nip n' Toy product. More to the point, I am writing to express my cat Sabrina's appreciation. I adopted Sabrina last fall and have bought her many different types of toys but yours is the first she actually plays with. I can hear the bell ringing as the bats it around right now. I don't know what you did, but good work."

Nip n toy"When I initially found this item my first thoughts were that I thought this was expensive for a ball in a little bit of catnip. How wrong I was! With the hours of enjoyment my cats and I, have gotten out of these balls were worth every penny and a lot more. The last one of these I had was half bare and been stepped on, and yet my cat would wait for me to put it back in the bag and return it to her. Sometimes, it would get lost for months, but the second I found it, there was my cat with a gleam in her eyes. The new ball is great, and yet my cat still gets much enjoyment out of the old squished bald one. The best part of this toy is the way the lamb’s wool interact with the cat claws, much fun for all. I will be buying more Nip n’ Toys as gifts.

I was glad to see on your site how to care for these balls, and only hope to add to the enjoyment!!!!"

- Keith, Hooksett, NH
