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)
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!
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!!
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...
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.
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!
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!
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 🙂
