Abby Hawk 


“A couple of weeks ago we got Maple (prior name was Monica) our Shetland Sheepdog from here as a friend for our other sheltie, Aspen (who we got from Happiness is Pets in Orland Park)!  HUGE shoutout to the manager.  She was AMAZING.  She was so helpful, gave us everything we needed for our new baby girl, and was so happy that she found a loving home.  I can honestly say that this was the best experience I’ve ever had in ANY store.  The store was really clean, the cages were clean, and there was no odor.  Maple is happy, healthy, and super loved.  And Aspen is so excited to have a new friend.”
