When will my product arrive?
Depending on stock levels, orders placed by 1 pm PST will be packed the same day. We ship from multiple locations, so shipping times may vary. Once your order is processed, you’ll receive a shipping confirmation email from us complete with a tracking number. Can’t find the email? Check your spam folder, or let us know and we’ll be happy to resend your tracking number!
I’m looking for a specific product, but I don’t see it on your website, do you sell it?
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, let us know! Being an independent retailer means we have great relationships with our distributors, and we’re often able to order products just for you. There’s no additional charge for this service, you’ll only pay for the product and the shipping. Since it’s not a typical item, shipping times will be longer than usual depending on the distributor, but we’ll be sure to give you the best timeline of when to expect your item!
How can I get free shipping?
For our Oregon, Washington and California customers, you are eligible for free shipping with a purchase of $75 or more! For orders up to $75, shipping is a flat rate of $6.
If you live in the Portland area, in-store pickup is available for most of our items. Plus it’s FREE!

All of our animals are placed on a health observation period upon arrival, which means that they are unavailable to hold or purchase until they pass a health check. Feel free to stop by, give us a call, or send us an email to find out who's available!
Do you sell puppies?
We do not sell puppies in our store. We'd recommend checking out any of the local shelters such as the Oregon Humane Society, Multnomah County Animal Services, The Pixie Project, or Family Dogs New Life. If you're looking for a specific breed or age, check out Petfinder!
Do you engrave dog tags?
Yes we do! We carry basic tags in small and large sizes, and a variety of colors and shapes. It's $6 to engrave one side, and $7 for both sides. If you're looking for something with a little more style, we do also sell Red Dingo tags which are engraved at their facility and then shipped directly to you!
Do you carry live or frozen feeders?
Yes we do! For our scaly friends we carry:
- Live and frozen mice
- Live and frozen rats
- Dubia Roaches
- Fruit Flies
Do you have vaccinations or heartworm preventatives?
We don’t carry these products regularly as they must be prescribed by a veterinarian, but every Sunday and fourth Wednesday we host Good Neighbor Vet’s mobile clinic! If you’re on a budget and in need of vaccines or other preventative medications, this is a great option for you! You can learn more about the program here.
Do you carry CBD for pets?
Yes we do! We proudly carry CBD products by Pet Releaf, Holistic Hound, and Earth Animal. We know that choosing the right CBD product for your pet can be intimidating, so feel free to check out our blog article on CBD, give us a call, or stop by the store!
*All CBD products are available in-store only.
Do you offer grooming services?
Our store does not offer grooming services, however we have a great selection of grooming products like nail trimmers, shampoos, clippers, and more! If you’re looking for a groomer that’s close to us, check out Townhouse Pet Care on NE Sandy!
