Homegrown Week: Buppy Pets


Lauren Ruggiero stopped by “The Rhode Show” on Friday morning, to share some samples from her newly launched company, BUPPY PETS.

Lauren says she took the leap from her work in PR in 2017 to feed her passion for animal welfare and work on her growing business at Hope & Main in Warren.

As Lauren explained, the goal of BUPPY PETS is to be able to snack with your pet through wholesome, four-ingredient-treats that both can enjoy.  Though their artisan menu is crafted for dogs, each recipe was also inspired by taste, health, and human enjoyment.

One of the fan favorites is Pizza Bites, which works to mimic the taste of a pizza Goldfish cracker.  It’s made with fresh Parmesan cheese, tomato juice, rolled oats and oregano. Another is Pumpkin Nutters with a combination of peanut butter and pumpkin. Lauren also always uses a spice or an herb in her treats as a way to naturally preserve them as well as offer the heath benefits that come along with each. In doing this, the company just officially hits the one-year shelf life mark without using anything unnatural or artificial.

BUPPY PETS is currently in 5 stores around RI and MA and available online as well as through markets and “BUP Up Shops” around the New England.
