My new little project kitty doing well. He was found by Ellyse darting across the street in Vallejo during the recent fire and smoke filled skies. He was less than a pound and had to be coaxed into eating, so I had to bring him home in the evening. The rescuer is coming back for him when she is settled in a cat-friendly home. He is now eating on his own.

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!

  •   Patti and Bill have moved to a larger space and it's wonderful. They now have parking and the most amazing catio for the adorable rescue  kittens through Angle Cat Network!

      Patty and Bill run the very best pet store in Marin, and while you are shopping you can visit with kittens and an occasional guinea pig- Patty fosters kittens through the Cat Angel Network. She usually has chickens in the back yard and chicks under a heat lamp in the store. Along with the aforementioned doggy bathing station, it's just a nice local business with wonderful caring proprietors.

  •   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!

      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.

  •   Our dog wandered from our house, was picked up by an out-of-towner, and Patty-the owner of For Paws-offered to keep the dog at her shop until she could find the owner.
    She coordinated having our dog scanned by The Marin Humane Society (our dog was not wearing her collar), and within 3 hours we got our dog back. She handled an emergency situation perfectly. What a great resource for the community here in Fairfax! Thank you Patty!!!

    Just found out she will order the food our dog eats. We will be loyal customers!
    We love For Paws!!!

      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.

  •   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.

  •   What a charming store! The first time I paid a visit was with some trepidation. I expected the business to be too cute and pricey.  What a surprise I got when when the proprietress, Patty, advised me on what the best type of food to give my dog. She knew her stuff, spent time with me, the prices where right, and I walked out with about a pound of free samples. I love the place and am now a regular customer.

      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.
