Your Guide to Shipping: Tail Wag Worthy Options for Everyone

At Maddie’s American Pet Products, we know that when it comes to your furry friends, they can be a little impatient. That’s why we’ve streamlined our shipping process to get your pawsome products to you as quickly as possible. Here’s everything you need to know about our shipping policies:

Fast and Efficient Processing:

We understand that once you’ve placed your order, you’re eager to receive it. That’s why we strive to process most orders within 12 hours. While some items may require additional handling or transit times, we make sure to clearly communicate any delays on their individual product pages. Since select products are made to order, they may have increased handling/production times noted on their specific pages. 

Shipping From the Heart of America:

Based in Cleveland, OH, our warehouse serves as the hub for dispatching your pet essentials. Whether you’re in the heart of the city or nestled in the countryside, we’ve got your shipping needs covered. While we handle and ship most products directly, we partner with select manufactuers that may ship diredtly to you from other USA based locations. Shipping transit times are based on your location in relationship to the shipment origination point. Typically, transit times for standard shipping services are 1-5 days with east coast addresses seeing the fastest times. 

Carrier Partnerships:

To ensure the smooth delivery of your orders, we partner with reputable carriers such as USPS, UPS, and Amazon Logistics. If you have a preference for a particular carrier, just let us know, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request. In order to provide the best value for all of our Pack Members (customers), we ship with the most cost effective option for your specific order based on the service selected at checkout. 

Options Tailored to Your Needs:

We understand that every Pack Member has unique shipping preferences. That’s why we offer a range of shipping options to suit your needs:

  • Standard Shipping: Enjoy complimentary standard shipping on orders over $39, with a transit time of 2-5 business days. Orders under $39 will incur a $5 shipping charge. 

  • Carbon Neutral Shipping: For an environmentally-conscious choice, upgrade to carbon neutral shipping for just $6. We offset the carbon footprint of your order and utilize eco-friendly delivery services, with a transit time of 2-5 business days.

  • Expedited Shipping: Need your goodies in a hurry? Opt for expedited shipping for faster processing and air shipping service via USPS Priority Mail or expedited UPS service. Upgrade any order to Expedited Shipping for only $15. Note: product specific handling/production times apply.

  • Next Day Air Shipping: For urgent deliveries, choose next day air shipping for lightning-fast processing and delivery via USPS Priority Mail Express or UPS Next Day Air. Orders placed by 12pm ET Monday through Thursday qualify for next day delivery. Upgrade any order to next day delivery for only $30. Note: product specific handling/production times apply.

Stay in the Loop with Tracking:

We want you to be as excited about your package’s journey as your pet is about their goodies. That’s why we provide tracking information for all shipments. Once your order is packed and shipped, you’ll receive an email with tracking details. Keep an eye out for multiple updates if your order includes items shipped separately.

Download the Shop App: We recommend downloading the Shop App by Shopify to easily stay up to date on tracking as well as enjoy all the other shopping and rewards features available through the app. Click for more info

Your Guide to Shipping Protection: More Tail Wags, Less Worries

At Maddie's American Pet Products we offer easy options to give your piece of mind when ordering. This article should explain everything you need to know about our optional shipping protection coverage but as always reach out if you have a question that isn't answered here.

What is Shipping Protection:

Shipping protection is an optional service offered during checkout that offers protection against common shipping issues that may come up. Common examples include lost or damaged packages, some cases of package theft, etc. The cost of this service is based on your order total and will be calculated at checkout. 

Industry Leading Partnership:

We partner with Re:Do, a leading technology company that specializes in creating easy return and shipment protection platforms for eccomerce. Our self serve portal allows you to quickly and easily utilize your shipping protection benefits 24/7. Simply log into your store account to start your claim. 

What are my Options if I Opt Out of Shipping Protection:

While we always try to work with pack members to ensure any order problem is quickly addressed, the process can take considerable longer if package protection was not purchased. In these situations we have to first work with our shipping partners to investigate the situation and process according to their terms and conditions. When shipping protection is purchased we are able to address the situation quickly and then work with our shipping partners after the fact. 

Is Shipping Protection an Insurance Product:

Legally, we need to point out that our shipping protection offering is not a insurance product and neither Re:Do nor Maddie's American Pet Products LLC is in the business of offering insurance products to consumers. While shipping protection functions in many of the same ways it is not an insurance product and we administer all aspects of the program internally, while using Re:Do's technology. 

Other Terms and Conditions:

We reserve the right to discontinue this service or modify it at any time. While rare, claims may be denied if fraud, abuse, or other inappropriate behavior is discovered or suspected. In certain situations we may also block a customer from being able to purchase this service if abbuse is suspected.

Your Guide to Product Sourcing: Commited to American Made Quality

At Maddie's American Pet Products we are commitment to bringing you the best USA crafted products for your pets, whether they are our exclusive product lines or our curated selection of partner brand products. This article should explain everything you need to know about our product sourcing but as always reach out if you have a question that is not answered here. 


Always USA Crafted:

Our products are always crafted in the USA for exceptional quality and safety. We are proud to support skilled American workers and doing our part to support a strong economy. While we make every effort to source raw materiels domestically, we also work with our manufacturing partners to ensure the highest quality ingrediants are selected independent of their origin. Additionally several ingrediants may not naturally occure dommestically and would of course be procured from their naturally occuring place of origin.

Partner Products:

For products that do not bear the Maddie's American Pet Products name we imploy a strict process for evaluating performance, value and overall quality. All products are manufactured within the USA by brands that align with our own values. 

Crafted vs "Made in the USA":

While these two terms may seem the same, there are actually strict rules in place for how companies can utilize the term "Made in the USA". This includes being assembled or manufactured in the USA but also having nearly all of the components sourced from the USA. In most cases we utilize the term Crafted in the USA since the production takes place in the USA but select ingrediants may be sourced from other locations as needed. We do offer select products that contain exclusivly USA sourced ingrediants and these will be noted on their item details page. 

Printed in the USA Apparel:

Most apparel offerings will bear the printed in the USA label. Our manufacturing partner uses a mix of both USA crafted and at times foreign sourced "blank" apparel. Rest assured these items are inspected and screen printed by skilled American workers. Additionally, these items are designed by our family owned manufacturing partner to exacting specifications.

Your Guide to Giving Back: Together We are Doing Great Things!

At Maddie's American Pet Products we are committed to giving back to pets in need. Our "You Buy, We Donate" program is our commitment to helping pets in need! This article should explain the basics you need to know about this program but as always reach out if you have a question that is not answered here or in our related articles.



You Buy, We Donate:

Since our founding we have committed to giving back with every purchase. Through this program we donate the value of a meal to a pet shelter in need for every order. This donation is equivalent to an average cup of pet food and allocated as a lump sum monthly. The receiving shelter is free to use the monetary donation for whatever operational costs they may have and are not required to use the funds for feeding. Since many shelters have feedings programs already in place this allows them to utilize the donation as they best see fit.

Shelters are required to be a 501c(3) non profit to receive any donations from Maddie's American Pet Products. 

Powered by Pledge:

We partner with Pledge, a leading solutions provider specializing in donation technology.
