About Us

Events like Hurricane Katrina, the Pacific tsunamis, and the past unusual tornado seasons tragically brought attention to what can happen with our beloved pets in the event of a disaster. Pets have very specific requirements in the case of an emergency as well as often overlooked problems that affect them on a daily basis. Riley Care’s goal is to bring key pet knowledge to everyone while setting the highest standards for quality and effectiveness anywhere in the industry.

As pet owners ourselves, the safety and well-being of our pets is one of our utmost concerns. Riley has lived with his parents in many areas prone to such various calamities as hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, and wildfires. With these as well as other concerns to prepare for we realized all too quickly there is no single resource anywhere that provides enough information for pet owners on important subjects like emergency preparedness along with a well-thought-out Preparedness Kit for Pets. All the kits we found seem to be standard human emergency kits with dog food thrown in. Such haphazard products show an unfortunate ignorance of or blatant disregard for the unique needs that pets have in emergency situations.

There are many pet care products available and many companies that provide them. The difference is that Riley Care is run by people who really love animals and genuinely care about what they offer. The best choices for your dog or pet are featured here. We are also in the process of developing The Riley Care Foundation, which will contribute to very important yet under-recognized animal charities and rescue groups.

From first-time dog or pet owners to veteran pet parents we here at Riley Care want to help you and your pet grow together by providing the best products and information available. We encourage you to email if you have any questions.

Thanks for visiting and, as Riley says, “Be Kind To Pets”!

Meet Riley

Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Riley and I’m a 7-year-old Airedale Terrier. I was born in South Carolina and moved with my dad from there to Kansas and eventually California.

We have lived in areas that experience hurricanes, tornados, and earthquakes. Some of my adventures have led straight to the Emergency Room, which has always been a learning experience in and of itself. Life and nature teach you to expect the unexpected and my dad thought it would be a good idea to put together an emergency kit for both of us. In my kit he included some of my toys, food, an extra leash, my medical history, and a few other items particular to my needs. 

Natural disasters and other emergencies have a way of catching us unprepared, as illustrated by events such as the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. I have spent a lot of time talking to other dogs at the dog park and through my conversations I was disturbed to discover that many of my friends’ parents have not thought about what to do with their pet in the case of a disaster or other emergency. It’s important to have a plan outlining what to do with your pet in any crisis. It is also important to ensure that you have the proper tools and knowledge to deal with situations before they arise. I take great joy and pride in being able to help you and your pet prepare for the unforeseeable.

I’ve also found that many pet parents lack information regarding other health and wellness issues facing the modern dog. There are many things that impact a dog’s day-to-day life from chemicals in garden products to environmental factors such as noise or new routines. I have dedicated myself to supplying useful and necessary information as well as practical tools for pets and their parents. The more you know about your pet and their safety, the better you will be able to provide for their ever-changing needs!
