For Paws has been a local merchant for 16 years in the beautiful small town of Fairfax, California. 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.

We sell only the highest quality sourced food and treats. Our commitment to customer satisfaction is job one. 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, strolling the town, having a nice lunch or dinner, stop by and visit our friendly store – and be sure to bring your pet!

  •   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.

      Wonderful locally-owned business.  The big hearted, animal-loving owners, Patty & Marguerite are committed to satisfied customers and their humans. 😉
    And I feel good keeping my dollars in my local community.
    For Paws has my full recommendation.

  •   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.

      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.

  •   The women at the cash register (I think she's the owner) was extremely helpful. They had everything we needed and great recommendations. They also have a drive up pick up right now so you don't even have to go inside!

      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!

  •   I love this pet store. The people running the place are so nice and so helpful. They always remember you. It's definitely a place that makes you feel like family. Fairfax is really lucky to have a pet store like this.

      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!!!

  •   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!
