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!

  •   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...

      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!!!

  •   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!

      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 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! .

  •   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.

      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.

  •   Five stars for five star animal-loving people. My 4 year old daughter, Chloe, had two cats tragically  pass away on back to back days about two weeks ago.  An incredible cat they helped rescue and Chloe have officially fallen in love.  Thank you For Paws!!!  She also got to spend some time with the chickens 🙂
