Happy New Year! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Congratulations to our first ever contest winners:

Amy of the Selfish Mom blog won the $100 gift card and Paul won one of our graphic logo t-shirts.

In the days of big box stores and national/international chains its easy to forget that small businesses still account for nearly half of the American economy. As a small, local business, we greatly appreciate your patronage. We offer personalized service, exceptional quality in our products, and a knowledgeable staff to answer your questions. We hand feed all our animals and have volunteers who are trained to socialize them to make good pets in your home.
