Best Local Pet Store


Any store that has house pets and welcomes dogs and cats to take pictures with Santa Paws each Christmas has to be top shelf. Zamzows has been in the business of selling pet food, accessories, feed and supplements for 80 years. According to its website, "We want nothing more than to give your family as many years as possible with your beloved pets."

2nd Place: Bark N Purr—To the owners and staff of Bark N Purr, it's all about healthy food choices for your dog and cat. That's why it specializes in holistic and hypoallergenic formulas without any meat by-products, fillers, harmful additives or preservatives.

3rd Place: Northwest Pets—According to the owners, Northwest Pets began with "two hairy beasts and a dream." Those "beasts" were Teddy and Willow, a pair of Bernese Mountain Dogs who inspired their owners to open an alternative to brick-and-mortar chain stores. Three local locations later, Northwest Pets is much more than a dream.
