Here are just a few of the local businesses we love!

Pets Are People Too offers dog and cat foods made with human grade ingredients, without all the allergens, inexpensive fillers, and protein sources such as corn, wheat, corn gluten, and soy.

Linda Yost (the owner) is Certified in Companion Animal Nutrition and enjoys sharing her wealth of knowledge of all things healthy and holistic with her customers. The store has really grown and offers pet-themed merchandise for pet owners in addition to all the great foods, toys, and treats available for the dogs and cats.


Puddle Out offers a cleaner and deodorizer for all surfaces. Puddle Out removes urine smell and does so quickly without a lot of work.

We’ve found Puddle Out to be very effective in cleaning and deodorizing accidents when house training puppies. And the best part? It’s made locally in Bristolville, Ohio!


Shelter Puppies was founded in 2010 by Karen Lutz and Barb Darbey with the idea that puppies will have a better chance of finding a forever home if they are vetted, spayed/neutered, and already have some obedience training.

Puppies are rescued from private homes, shelters, and the local dog pound, and provided with veterinary care, spay/neuter, and beginning obedience training, then placed in a forever home.
