We do not believe in economic euthanasia, nor do we deny life saving care due to cost. Ask us for help, be proactive, and be prepared. We can help!

While we do our very best to provide the best products at the best prices we cannot always compete with large corporate buying power. We do, however, only offer genuine products with a full product guarantee, full refund for any reason you are not happy with the product, and our revenues help us provide care to other pets in our community for our projects like our Pet Food Pantry, free housing in inclement weather, cat shelter workshops, and financial assistance to pets in need.
