Kathy always has a nice warm smile and is extremely polite and knowledgeable about all products she carries and trusts for her own pets. I personally take my basset hound... More

Absolutely the best place to go in the Foscoe area for pet supplies. The owner is very friendly and helpful in suggesting food and toys for your pets.
