The Houndstone Journey: From Rescue Missions to Creating Luxury Pet Products

The Houndstone Journey: From Rescue Missions to Creating Luxury Pet Products

Ever since she was a child, Neda Torabi, the founder of Houndstone, found herself irresistibly drawn to the cause of canine welfare. The sight of injured stray dogs, often abandoned on blistering hot beaches, touched her heart profoundly. From tending to these animals in their hour of need, she developed a life-long passion for dog rescue that has spanned nearly two decades.

Neda's experiences from her early years ignited an unwavering commitment to the welfare of rescue animals. As she grew older, her influence began to expand, and her compassionate spirit touched the lives of an increasing number of animals. Her journey took a personal turn when her beloved Jack Russell Terrier, Al Capone, affectionately known as Pony, entered his golden years.

Motivated by her love for Pony, Neda embarked on a mission to create a hypoallergenic, cruelty-free dog shampoo. Pony's charming visage now adorns every bottle of Houndstone Dog Shampoo, serving as a heartfelt tribute to their shared bond during Pony's twilight years, before he crossed the rainbow bridge at the ripe age of 17.

The formulation of Houndstone's cruelty-free shampoo is a testament to Neda's dedication to canine health. "I wouldn't include anything in this product that I wouldn't feel safe using on my own babies," she says. Today, the Houndstone family is a bustling haven for senior pets, with three dogs and two cats. Neda sees her home as a sanctuary for these older animals, who might be considered less desirable by some.

In Neda's eyes, these senior animals are extraordinary, brimming with love and affection. They serve as the inspiration behind Houndstone's luxury pet products, including the hypoallergenic dog shampoo. "We never cut corners when it comes to any animal," Neda states. In line with this ethos, Houndstone donates 10% of its profits to aid animals in need, with a particular focus on senior pets.

Neda's story is a testament to her unwavering commitment to animal welfare. From her childhood rescue missions to founding Houndstone, she has dedicated her life to providing the best for man's best friend. Her ethos resonates in every bottle of Houndstone Dog Shampoo, promising a product created with love, care, and a deep respect for all animals.
