Our company, Furbabies Delectable Delights, was founded by trained chef Angela Riservato in 2007. As well as being mom to four children, Angela is also ‘mom’ to her three special ‘furbabies’ – Picasso, Dolce, & Roma ~ her inspiration for creating safer, healthier dog treats.
Introducing Angela Riservato
Angela holds a bachelor of science degree in nursing & worked in the hospital setting for 10 years. When her fourth child was born, she decided to hang up her stethoscope & become a full-time mom. She was always cooking for her family, for the kids’ numerous school bake sales, not to mention ensuring there were always ample treats on hand for the family pets!
When her youngest child was in middle school, Angela went back to culinary school to perfect the skills she had gained over the years. Upon graduation, Angela worked in the restaurant industry & then started her own personal chef business.
Ba(r)king For Safety
The idea for Furbabies Delectable Delights was born when the first scares about tainted rice & wheat gluten in dog treats started surfacing, as Angela explains.
“The thought of something harming our own furbabies was very frightening. So the idea of developing treats that contain all-natural, human-grade ingredients that are safe for dogs & are void of preservatives, by-products, fillers, salt, artificial ingredients & colors, & sugar became very important to us. We bake treats for our clients just like we were baking treats for our canine children, Picasso, Dolce, & Roma.”
A Family Business With Caring
When her Maltese, Mia, succumbed to lymphoma, Angela decided that Furbabies Delectable Delights had to come up with a special product in memory of her special little dog – The Paws for the Cure Gift Pack.
For every gift pack sold, $2.00 is donated to the National Canine Cancer Foundation. In addition to donating to this worthy cause, Furbabies Delectable Delights also is very active in donating gift baskets to both canine & human organizations for their worthwhile fundraisers. Angela is a member in good standing with the Arizona Pet Professionals network, American Maltese Association, The Arizona Humane Society, The Humane Society of So. Arizona, & the ASPCA.
Meet Our Trusted Treat Taste-Testers
Not only is John Angela’s husband, but he is Furbabies Delectable Delights official human taste tester.
Every treat gets tasted by him even before they are sampled by our canine connoisseurs!
This feisty 13 year old Maltese lets everyone know that he is the alpha dog & must sample the goodies before either of his “sisters”.
He stays close to the kitchen & when he sees the equipment come out, he knows the treats are just around the corner!
This 10 year old Pomeranian knows when the ovens turn on, the treats are not far behind!
Even though she is the “middle” dog of the family, she waits her turn for all the tasty treats that will be coming her way!
The “baby” of the group may be big in size, but she waits her turn to sample all the goodies that come out of the ovens. As the newest member of the Furbabies ‘furmily’, she sits at attention knowing that the smells that come from the kitchen are a prelude to what will go into her tummy!
