About Us


Hi! We are Sam and Courtney, founders of Wayward Paws!

Wayward Paws is a LGBTQ-run pet and human supply small business located in Phoenix, Arizona. Our story began with selling dog and cat bandanas on Etsy and has evolved into what you see today. Everything in our shop is handmade by us or sourced from other small businesses around the US and world. 

Wayward Paws was created to inspire people to create memories while sharing the unforgettable bond between pet and human. We believe no adventure is complete without them by our side. We have continually chosen the fox as a hallmark of our branding. The fox represents many things, but for us it represents what our pets continually remind us: to stay playful and a little bit mischievous. 

We strive to create a fun-loving, playful community with our members, who range from homebodies to rugged adventurers to anyone in between. Join our instagram family and share your favorite moments!

We hope you enjoy the Wayward experience. Don't forget to join us on #waywardwednesday!
