Pet Lover + Owner
I have lived in Lakeland Since 1975 when I moved here to attend Florida Southern College. I am married and My husband Ron and I own Benson’s together. We both have a love and a compassion for animals. We’ve rescued 4 dogs and 1 cat that were all strays and abandoned. I love the phrase “Who rescued who?” as they are very much a part of our family. The popularity of our treats has been huge and is growing.
Our customers, both the 2 legged and the 4 legged ones are awesome. We really enjoy meeting people and helping to guide them or educate them on feeding their pets a healthy diet and how it can pay off in less illness and happier and healthier pets. We would like everyone who walks through our door to leave with a smile and a special treat for their pet.
