  • We ask that if you'd like to come in, you follow guidelines and continue to WEAR A MASK IF YOU ARE NOT VACCINATED.

  • Most of our staff is fully vaccinated, but some of us may continue to wear a mask to be extra cautious. We hope you understand. 


  • We know that many folks have enjoyed the curbside pick-up and drop-off service the last year and would love to continue offering that. Please just give us a call and we'll come outside to get your pet(s).
