Clean living for pets, inside and out
"A dog’s coat is the direct result of its health. A shiny, healthy coat is representative of a well balanced macro-nutrient rich diet much like good muscle tone is a result of regular exercise. A healthy dog needs a nutrient rich diet and adequate exercise for a healthy life. At Urban Yap, we are passionate about pets. We believe in a providing the very best pet food options on any budget, for a clean, biologically correct diet, as well as providing a superior grooming experience for a long healthy pet life. By starting from the inside with a variety of fresh proteins, fruits and vegetables you can strengthen your dog’s metabolism and eliminate toxins in the body. On the outside, regular bathing and brushing provide even the dirtiest dog a clean scent, shiny coat, aids in circulatory wellness and skin function. It is our mission to offer a better life for your best friend, naturally, from the inside out." ~Lee Anne Townes, Owner
Lee Anne Townes
Lee Anne Townes is a Greenville native, almost. She moved here in 1979 with her family and grew up in Botany Woods under the care of her grandparents, Edward and Ann Sutherlin. She was a competitive swimmer and ran track and cross country in high school. After graduating from Wade Hampton High School, she went on to study language and humanities at the University of South Carolina, following her older sister, Stacey. Her career has been a melting pot of ‘checked off boxes’ (including becoming an Ironman in 2011). However, the one constant in her life has been her love of animals. She adopted anything and everything that needed a home over the years. At one time, she actually ran a small farm with the likes of horses, goats, ducks, guinea hens, a pot-bellied pig, and a rooster. Today, she lives in Greenville with her family. She is a proud mother of two teenage sons, four dogs and one cat. Her lifelong love of animals has led her on a quest for better health of her pets using a natural approach. Her entrepreneurial spirit has led her to create her own company to serve pets in Greer and Eastside Greenville. The result of the culmination of the two is her vision called Urban Yap.
