You probably know someone who has lost a dog in a hot vehicle. It happens more often than you think and is not discussed by those who have lost their pets this way. Please leave dogs at home if it is more than 70 degrees outside. If you see a dog in a car call the dog shelter or the police to report it and save a life!

We will never sell ANY live animal for profit. All pets who come from chain pet stores are coming from unsavory conditions and dealers. Use your voice, don’t shop in chains who support misery. Looking for a cat or dog? Adopt through http://www.petfinder.com. Looking for fish or a pocket pet? Our local pet shop Fish N’ Stuff is an ethical shop which carries reptiles and fish. We love Athens because Athens loves LOCAL!
We know you love our groomers Jennie, Julie & Crystal and although we were grooming all day, each day we were open it just wasn’t enough and our wait was 6-8 weeks. Now two pet stylists can work at the same time and our wait time is down to two weeks and many times you can get in the same week or the next week. Thank you to all of our loyal customers – we love your dogs! And your cats!
Proper dental care can detect dental disease that not only affects the mouth, but can also lead to more serious health problems such as heart, lung, and kidney disease. Good dental hygiene is just as important for pets as it is for humans. Yet, it is one of the most overlooked areas in pet health. It is recommended to have teeth professionally cleaned at a veterinarian every 3 to 4 years to ensure that bacteria will not enter the bloodstream to cause health issues. Many pets after receiving a proper dental cleaning start acting like puppies and kittens again! We also have a variety of maintenance products to assist you in keeping your pet’s teeth healthy – they are 20% off all month!
ID tags are so important for your pets. Many pets who are lost are never returned to their families because of lack of identification. Many are euthanized or re-homed. We are all super excited about these new dog/cat tags. They are enamel and will last forever. High quality engraving. Many many designs and colors, more than pictured here. Come in to see the display/catalog and get a new tag for your dogs & cats for the new year. (we order them the same day you come in and they should be to you within one week!) They run $12-$15. In addition to ID tags we highly recommend micro-chipping your pets the next time you are at the veterinarian.
