Our History

We believe pets are family.

That’s not just our philosophy, it’s how we live our lives.

My Buddy’s Place started on one simple idea: more dogs like our amazing Rook need help finding their forever home.

So we designed a simple to use, cloud-based software to help rescue organizations save time, eliminate paper waste, and manage their most important information. It allowed these organizations to spend more time doing their crucial work keeping euthanasia rates down by clearing high kill shelters of adoptable dogs and maintaining them in small kennels or short-term foster care until they find their forever homes.

Then we thought it’d be great to electronically transfer information to the new pet parent upon adoption, and our Life Buddy Tracker app was born. This means from the moment of adoption, every new pet parent is welcomed into a community that provides resources, tools, games, and more to facilitate the best life with their new buddy.

Seeing firsthand how access to resources and support makes all the difference in saving and changing lives of rescues and pet parents, we saw a need for My Buddy’s Marketplace: an online pet store dedicated to supporting rescue animals and the people who love them.

Through My Buddy’s Marketplace, we offer top name food and products selected by rescue pros and pet experts that are always high quality, natural, and safe for your buddy. Our fulfillment is powered by two of the largest pet store distributors in the United States, which means fast shipping, safe products that haven’t been sitting in a warehouse forever, and 100% satisfaction guaranteed. AND you can designate 5% of every purchase to the animal welfare organization of your choice, every single time you shop!

Now we’ve embarked on a partnership with Sierra Delta, a company dedicated to enabling veterans and dogs to return to their best selves with companionship and community. Focused on training, resources, and support, we are proud to introduce The Life Buddy Program and the companion Life Buddy App!

“The hours of training, learning how each other operates, and taking steps into the world together have all been completely worth it. Leland has truly helped me get back into the 'normal' world, and has been my tether to healing and moving forward. There is no doubt in my mind that we were meant to be together from day one."
