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!

      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!

  •   What a wonderful pet store! Great selection and prices. And the kind and knowledgeable woman who runs it is like a fairy godmother compared to the Pet Cottage people (where I will no longer be shopping!) - she is there to help and you leave there feeling like you're an important part of the community. They also have little bunnies in there right now - so bring your kids with you to pet them!

      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 have to confess I only buy rare gifts for other people's pets here, but I love this store. The owner and all of the employees are so nice and helpful and they have eco-friedly options. But I am prompted to write this because of a recent incident. I had a little 5 year old visitor that I needed to entertain for a couple of hours on a rainy morning, so I took her to For Paws  to visit the kittens. She was thrilled - until she accidentally stepped on one and was then devastated. The owner simultaneously comforted both child and kitten until child was holding purring kitten and  smiling through tears. I wish I had a pet so I could shower them with business, but in the mean time, here is a Yelp!

      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!!

  •   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.

      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.

  •   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.

      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.
