For Paws has been a local merchant for 10 years in the beautiful town of Fairfax, CA. We offer food and sundries for dogs, cats, rodents, chickens, and more. We liken our experience to the Andy of Mayberry days. Customers visit and chat. Town folks talk about town stuff and the many visitors we meet from all over the country and the world always feel cheerful when they come in for the fist time. Half the town comes to visit the Rescue Kitties. Free pet advice is always offered.

We sell only the highest quality sourced food and treats. We have over 3,000 line items to offer in a wide range of categories. Our commitment to customer satisfaction is 100%. If we don’t have it, we will try to get it, if you need it delivered (locally), we can drop your order off. The next time you’re in town, doing yoga, having a nice lunch or dinner, stop by and see our wonderful new store – and be sure to bring your pet!

  •   I brought my 15 1/2 golden retriever into For Paws.  Normally, he is very well behaved.  I turned my head for a second and my dog Jake,had bit into a giant  four pound tube of fancy dog food.  I was thrilled Jake found something he liked, and obviously I bought it because the single bite was almost a quarter of the tube.  He loves it and I am so grateful that it we now have a new brand of dog food that my dog loves, and that Marguerite was so nice about my naughty dog.    

    The food is natural and the staff knows so much.  Im just grateful that he did not bite into something more expensive .  I love this store.

      Best place to clean your dog, get some accessories and get dog wisdom from Patty, the owner. Just in case you have a bunny, bird, feed wild birds or have a feline, this is your place. Drive right past the national brands and support your local merchant.  Patty will keep you coming back with her kindness and love of all animals large and small.

  •   Patty and her charming store could not be anymore lovely. As a local small business owner (I run dogs) and someone who loves animals enough to want to serve them full time, it's fabulous to have someone down the street from us who can never seem to do enough for the animals in our community, and holds the same values and standards I feel I do. We are so lucky to have For Paws (and Patty) in our community!!

      Great service, friendly and good prices! I appreciate how they always have what I need in stock and it's easy to pop in and out to get it anytime my dog runs out. Their new location around the corner is bigger and quite nice!

  •   It was Christmas Eve at 4.30 and my dog rolled in poop and smelled to high heaven!  She is a timid rescue dog and is terrified of water and I didn't know how I would get her cleaned up in time for the festivities.  I stopped at my local pet store not thinking it would still be open, but it was.  Patti, the owner, was my Christmas Angel a true dog whisperer!  She helped me get my dog into the bath, coaxed her with soothing words and took over the shampooing and bathing.  The shop was busy all the while, everyone loves this store, and I wouldn't go anywhere else to get everything I need for my dog. This is a local family business at it's very best, I cannot recommend it more highly.  Thank you Patti, the dog Saint of Fairfax!

      My dog likes to walk into bars. Seriously. You walk down the street with him and he'll pass by every store and restaurant... but the second you pass a bar, he's pulling you to go in there. If I'm with strangers, I can pull off the whole "Wow, he's never done anything like that before, there must be something in there that smells familiar!" Most people, however, know better. I personally think it's because the smell of liquor reminds him of all of my friends who come over drunk and give him tons of affection. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    So it's refreshing when he actually pulls me into non-bar establishments - particularly ones that are made for animals. This place is small, but they sell quality goods. My dog loves the Sea Mobility Venison Jerky treats (really, though, who wouldn't?) - and they carry them (for a pretty penny). The girl working here was really sweet and engaging - and helpful.

    My dog liked it so much he tried to pull me back in when we walked past it a second time. Fucking lush.

  •   I'm a single mama who came in with my 2-year old son and my stinky, dirty 75lbs Siberian Husky who was desperately in need of a bath. I had already resigned myself to the idea that we were ALL going to get a bath that morning, but it didn't happen. The owner of the store got us all set up, then very graciously took my son to meet the rescue kitties and bunnies while the big guy and I got his soap on. What a relief to not have to juggle/wrestle/negotiate with babies and dogs and gods and goddesses on high to get the job done! I was, and still am, so grateful for her help. And the young ladies working in the store were just as lovely. I will continue to give them my business and highly recommend that you do, too. My son is still talking about the kitties. If only I weren't so allergic...

      For Paws is the best little pet shop one could ever want. You can always find premium products and great prices. If you need something you can't find, then typically it can be ordered. Patty provides exceptional service and is very knowledgeable, not to mention lovely and friendly. I love this place. I go to other big pet stores and get lost and can't even find what I'm looking for. At For Paws, I can find what I need quickly, and if not, Patty will get it for me. Problem solved. This is one exceptional small business.

  •   We recently discovered this hidden gem in Fairfax and paid a second visit to sniff it out. Lovely people, nice things, healthful foods, great service, and easy parking in its own lot! Your dog or cat will be delighted if you stop by for delicious treats or foods or fun toys. We needed a bed for a crate and they special ordered it with next day delivery at a great price and showed our rescue pup lots of love on his first outing.

      I love supporting my local community, and shopping at For Paws is one way I do it! This neighborhood pet store is owned by a really groovy gal named Marguerite, and her cutey pie pups.  For Paws focuses on carrying a lot of locally made and eco-friendly pet products - yay! While the shop is small, Marguerite is happy to order anything you might need.
