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!
31 Bolinas Road – Fairfax – California – 94930
Open 10-7 Mon-Sat & 11-6 Sundays (with a smile and a wag)
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! .
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 🙂
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...
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.
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!
I love supporting my local community, and shopping at For Paws is one way I do it! This neighborhood pet store is owned by a really groovy gal named Marguerite, and her cutey pie pups. For Paws focuses on carrying a lot of locally made and eco-friendly pet products - yay! While the shop is small, Marguerite is happy to order anything you might need.
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!!!
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!
