Pets-N-Pals is proud
to be a local, independently owned, business. At 19 years old, Chris
opened his doors for the first time on Sept 29, 1989. He has been hard
at work since! Chris has been working with animals since he was 12 years
old. His grandmother would drive him to a little pet shop in Downtown
Staunton, where he would volunteer. Since Chris was young, he has had a
love for animals and a passion for business. Thanks to our loyal
customers, Chris was able to succeed and expand to our current location
in 1994. Much has happened since that exciting day in 1989. Chris has
been blessed with a wife, Stephanie and beautiful children. The
Pets-N-Pals team takes their responsibilities seriously and are proud to
unlock the doors every morning and offer the best customer service
Here at Pets-N-Pals,
we treat every animal like they are our own! We specialize in puppies
and spend many hours researching our breeders and visiting their homes.
The families that we choose to buy from have to meet our strict store
standards and government regulations. Stephanie and Emily (General
Manger) make a conscious effort to meet our breeders face-to-face and
see first hand where our puppies come from! We only work with breeders
who care for and love their dogs and puppies as much as we do! The next
time you are in, ask us to share some of the pictures from our visits.
Chris and Stephanie
also are passionate about protecting our coral reefs. As scuba divers we
have seen the breathtaking beauty that God has created in our oceans.
We want our children, and yours, to be able to see the same natural
beauty. Pets-N-Pals works with aqua-cultured (tank raised) saltwater
fish and coral distributors. To our customers that means the fish and
corals you see in our store were not taken from reefs in the ocean. They
were bred and or fragged in captivity. Because of this, we are
providing our customers with the healthiest fish/corals possible and
doing our best to protect our natural environment and coral reefs.
support a local business your dollar stays local. Did you know that each
dollar spent at a local business returns 3 times more money to our
local economy than one spent at a big box chain? This is a benefit we
can all bank on. Thanks you for supporting your local, independently
owned, Pet Store!
