OUR STORY

CELEBRATING THE BOND BETWEEN PEOPLE AND PETS

ESPECIALLY FOR PETS

Especially for Pets is a chain of stores in Massachusetts that sells pet food and supplies, and offers training, grooming, day school, and wellness services. We serve as a community-oriented educational resource for responsible pet care. Founded in 1988, we have eight locations throughout the state and more than 150 employees, many of whom have affiliations with veterinary, training and animal rescue organizations.

At Especially for Pets, the customer experience is paramount. We are dedicated to providing genuine and individualized service that has you and your pet’s best interest at heart. We are pet lovers just like you and our understanding of the relationship between people and pets is a personal one. We share a passion and a love of animals. Virtually everyone who works at Especially for Pets does so because of their deep commitment to pets in general and to their own in particular.

A PASSION TO HELP

In addition to serving our customers, we are ever mindful of our responsibility to address the problem of homeless and abandoned animals, as well as to support local humane groups and assistance dog organizations. Having garnered many awards since 1996, it’s no wonder Especially for Pets is a local favorite of customers and humane organizations alike! In the last 27 years, Especially for Pets has donated over $400,000 to more than 40 non-profits.

We host hundreds of adoption events every year. Our Adoption Initiative Program finds permanent, loving homes for homeless pets and raises awareness about the work being done in the rescue community. In six-month increments, each Especially for Pets’ store teams up with a local non-profit to educate customers about what the specific organization does, collect donations for its use and, ultimately, help find homes for pets in its care.
