"Our philosophy is simple; create a friendly, casual atmosphere for people and their pets."
Especially 4 Pets has been a family run local store since 1988. In 2008, we discovered that our friends Kim & Harry were thinking of selling their store and we jumped at the opportunity to start living our dream. We had volunteered at different rescue and fundraising events held at E4P through the years, and the thought of doing that for a living was pretty exciting!
Over the years, I have learned a lot about the health needs of dogs and cats and have become very particular about what is acceptable. I won’t bring in brands just because they are highly recognizable! I thoroughly scan through ingredient lists on all our foods and treats to make sure they meet or exceed our high standards. You can be confident your pet only receives the healthiest choices and can get the best nutrition possible with our products! E4P carries unique items that you won’t find in the big box stores. I believe in being active outdoors with your dog and try to bring in items that will have you and your dog playing outside for many years to come! Most of our inventory comes from other Canadian small businesses so we are also helping to support the local economy.
I am very proud of my shop, the daycare and our grooming salon. I have a great team and I think it is truly one of a kind!
I have been so fortunate to have some special people come into our lives because of this little neighborhood store. It’s much more than a business, it’s a family. I am so thankful for the friendships I’ve made and the all the knowledge I’ve gained. I hope to continue learning for many years to come.
