For Independent Pet Retailers

If you are an independent pet retailer offering the pets and people of your community quality products, services, and expertise. This day is for you!


On the last Saturday in September, Neighborhood Pet Store Day recognizes independent pet retailers like you, serving their community to better the lives of our beloved companions, showcasing the indie pet difference, and establishing themselves as top dog with a unique shopping experience no big box or online retailer can offer.
