1988 Pets Plus was born, as a child Mark Arabia was always disgusted by the less than average pet store. During the 80's your average pet store was filthy, stinky, the lack of compassion and care for their animals where clearly evident. Mr. Arabia had envision stores that cared for their animals, encouraged healthy natural feeding.
Overall Pets Plus's slogans clearly state our business mission.

Pets Plus is molded upon compassion, care and knowledge of our animals. Our friendly, highly educated staff is always readily available to assist with any questions or concerns.
-Definition to date at Pets Plus is to educate our consumers of the unknown dangers their pets face.
Cancer and Kidney failure are presently still the highest cause of death in our loved ones. Mr. Arabia short hair Persian was another unsuspected victim of deceptive cat & dog food ingredients.
Unknowingly Mr. Arabia himself was feeding Snowball unhealthy foods, containing cancer-causing agents. Since the passing of Snowball, Mr. Arabia & Staff have made it their agenda to educate every customer that passes through Pets Plus's doors. Everyday it is their duty to ensure that every customer understands that "chicken- byproducts" are immensely harmful for their cats and dogs. "Never would we want another family to endure the pain and loss of a beloved pet", Snowball wasn't just Mr. Arabia's family cat but a member of the family.

"I love Parakeets. I enjoy how small they are, but also how uniquely beautiful they can be for their tiny size. Mine, Buddy, was one who I purchased a few months back at Pets Plus. I was enamored when I first met him. He had light blue feathers, a white chest with black spots, a golden beak, as well as two little black eyes".....-Robert Upey Read More
"About a year ago Pets Plus sold me a Kitten, Stacey; and I have to say, that she is the most adorable thing ever created! She and I banter often, most of the time she is chasing me around the house, playfully swatting at my feet while I prepare dinner for my roommate and I.".....-Emma Warwansky Read More
"It should be duly noted that the services I received at Pets Plus was incredible. Never have I met such an adept, kind, and diligent staff at a pet store. The store was clean, even though there was that aroma of pets lingering throughout the air. What a comfortable feeling indeed though, it was! ".....-Francis Leon Read More
"About 3 months ago I purchased a puppy from Pets Plus, hoping that she would, in the cliche, become my "man's best friend," or in this case, woman's. I often work late into the evening, as I am an Insurance agent, meeting clients at any hour of the day. When I come home to see my gem, as I aptly named her, "Gem" after her princess-like attitude, she is always ready to greet me with hugs and kisses, or in the case of a puppy, little hops and licks.".....
