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!

31 Bolinas Road – Fairfax – California – 94930

Open 10-7 Mon-Sat & 11-6 Sundays (with a smile and a wag)

  •   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.

  •   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!!

      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.

      I can walk here from my home,  see the wonderful kittens and bunnies and puppies, up for adoption, buy my fav cat food at better- than -other -places pricing in San Rafael and not heat up the planet and add to bad traffic!
    Also here I can help the Town I love with sales tax and support  local business owners/animal lovers!!

    It gets no better! .

  •   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.

      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.

  •   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.

      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!
