...all about Best Friend Nutrition

Maggie's Story

It all started because of the love of Hope and Jim Williams for Maggie, the rescue Golden Retriever who was given 3 months to live by the vet.  They decided to adopt Maggie and made a promise to “give her the best 3 months of her life.”  Hope and Jim, our founders, set to work researching.  They developed a custom diet using natural, healthy foods and supplements, and Maggie lived a vibrant 3 more years!  Their discoveries healing Maggie, and their passion for helping, uncovered a true calling… “we knew we wanted to give something more.”

A Store Is Born

Hope and Jim moved to Sequim in 2003, opening the first “health food store for pets” off Hooker Road in Carlsborg.  In 2008 the store moved to it’s current home in the Safeway Plaza in Sequim.

After 14 years of dedicating themselves to offering the best in nutrition for pets, Hope and Jim decided to retire.  But they wouldn’t leave their store to just anyone, after all this wasn’t just a business, this was a labor of love and countless treasured relationships!

“For us, it’s always [been] all about the health of the animal.” – Hope Williams

And we can’t thank them enough!

A New Chapter

And that’s when something magical happened… a one in a million chance brought the Lindens and Williams together.  They found shared values, passions, and the belief in the healing power of good nutrition: the baton was passed in 2018.

Cynthia and Casey Linden moved to Sequim and fell in love!  Continuing to serve Sequim and the North Olympic Peninsula, under the guidance of Cynthia and Casey The Natural Pet Market, Best Friend Nutrition was re-born.

Cynthia is a graduate of the University of Washington, holding a degree in Zoology and has years of research in pet nutrition.  When Max, her first dog just out of college, started to struggle with allergies and poor health Cynthia set on a path to understand the true power of healing with holistic food and supplements. Through helping Max I learned the value of good nutrition and to look deeper than the ingredient panel.  I learned how to help her body heal itself.  She taught me so much, and she always loved me, even on her toughest days!”  – Cynthia Linden

“We’d like to give a huge thanks to BEST FRIEND NUTRITION: a health food store for pets! for sponsoring Nellie’s road to recovery!!! Nellie was scheduled to be euthanized at a high intake shelter in Southern California — even though she performed nearly perfect on her temperament test, her time was up… Thankfully, our partners at Dream Team Angels Rescue were able to pull Nellie to safety and get her transported up to Western Washington to start a better life!
And now, thanks to the friendly folks at Best Friend Nutrition, Nellie has a super high-quality food, supplements, and shampoo to help make her healthy inside and out! …She’s already feeling and looking better!
This 7-year-old lady is just the SWEETEST girl in the world, and we are so happy we could save her life! She no longer has to worry about making puppies, sleeping on the cold/hard ground, or getting enough to eat.”
