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!

  •   Shop local! Very nice owners, great selection of higher end pet food at the best pricing I've seen anywhere.

      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.

  •   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 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.

  •   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! .

  •   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!

      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!

  •   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!!

      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.
