Local Animal Shelters

You may have noticed that, while we carry products for cats and dogs, we don't have any in store. That's because we believe that there are so many cats and dogs in local shelters that need homes, it would be irresponsible if we sold them ourselves. If you would like a dog or cat, please consider talking to one of these Animal Rescues. These four legged friends need a good, loving home. Are you going to be their hero?
