“Pets devour the loneliness. They give us purpose, responsibility, a reason for getting up in the morning, and a reason to look to the future.”

― Nick Trout, veterinary surgeon and author

At The Animal Store, we love pets. At our pet shop, you’ll find birds, reptiles, pocket pets, small mammals, and fish by the gallon. We have so many different kinds of animals — familiar and exotic — that we’ve come to be known as the “Who-knew Zoo.”

You might expect bunnies at at a pet store, but who knew you could find tarantulas?

Sure, we’ve got parakeets, but who knew you could find sugar gliders?

You bet we’ve got goldfish, but who knew you might befriend a blue-tongued skink?

All animals at The Animal Store are:

  • young
  • hand-fed
  • socialized to become good family pets
