5. Doggy Delights by Allison
Allison loves all things kitchen! She strives to make the very BEST homemade dog treats. Her recipes include only natural human grade ingredients. Allison was born with Down syndrome and Tracheoesophogeal Fistula (TEF, which is when the breathing tube and eating tube are not formed correctly). Doggy Delights is a perfect business for Allison because she spends time in the kitchen mixing up her own treat recipes. She knows how important healthy food is for both people and pets. Her treats are sold frozen or freeze dried so no preservatives are needed. Promoting her business and selling the treats gets her out into the community meeting people and their dogs. She is an entrepreneur with Down syndrome, but she just wants you to know her as the best dog treat chef ever!

Balmshot isn’t only committed to making good lip balms. We have a mission to provide meaningful employment to individuals with special needs! Our mission is inspired by our owner’s son Andrew—our special guy who was born with an extra chromosome. After seeing the difficulties some individuals have finding reasonable paying and safe work environments, we committed ourselves to change that. At Balmshot, each of our employees gets to make lip balms, receive training, and earn competitive pay! Helping them grow is what drives us forward.
