For Paws has been a local merchant for 10 years in the beautiful town of Fairfax, CA. 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. Half the town comes to visit the Rescue Kitties. Free pet advice is always offered.

We sell only the highest quality sourced food and treats. We have over 3,000 line items to offer in a wide range of categories. Our commitment to customer satisfaction is 100%. 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, doing yoga, having a nice lunch or dinner, stop by and see our wonderful new store – and be sure to bring your pet!

  •   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 brought my 15 1/2 golden retriever into For Paws.  Normally, he is very well behaved.  I turned my head for a second and my dog Jake,had bit into a giant  four pound tube of fancy dog food.  I was thrilled Jake found something he liked, and obviously I bought it because the single bite was almost a quarter of the tube.  He loves it and I am so grateful that it we now have a new brand of dog food that my dog loves, and that Marguerite was so nice about my naughty dog.    

    The food is natural and the staff knows so much.  Im just grateful that he did not bite into something more expensive .  I love this store.

  •   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!

      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!

  •   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'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...

  •   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.

      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.
