"So excited!! Love this store. Great quality food. A regularly changing selection of toys and pet extras. I often get asked about my anticipated needs so they can be sure to order it and have it on hand. My favorite service offering - THEY keep track of my food purchases. The brand I buy offers you a free bag after the purchase of 12 or 13 bags. Even with big chow hounds like mine, it takes several months to go through that much food. Pattie and Maggie ensure that I don't have to worry about holding on to receipts, keeping a log, etc. Awesome. And now that I won't have to trash up my own bathroom? Awesomer!"

"I operate the Caring For Creatures animal sanctuary and with over 200 animals in residence we see numerous health conditions in the animals who come to us. Pattie is my go to person when I am working on a diet plan for one or more of our animals. She is knowledgeable in all areas of health care and can assist in selecting the food and/or supplements best suited for any condition. In addition, there are many occasions that Animal Connection has donated products to help out with the ongoing care of an especially depleted animal. We recommend Pattie and her staff to anyone seeking to provide top notch care for their animal companions! Animal Connection is 5 STAR all the way! Thanks Pattie!"

"My person, Shelia walks me around McIntire to take care of, you know, business... and I just can’t go back to the office without coming in for a Plato Salmon treat. Shelia says they’re good for my skin and coat, but I just love how yummy they are!"

"Our dogs, Sparky and Gus, had really scratchy, scruffy skin so we called Animal Connection for help. After changing our dog’s food to fresh meat and vegetables, they are sleek and shiny and no more skin issues! And their breath smells better too! What a relief!"

“We love to support local businesses. So when Animal Connection discovered Bowhaus Dog Treats, we knew we had to give them a try. They are a small batch, soft treat for senior dogs made with organic ingredients. We even tasted them... they are so good! Our elderly dog loves them and they are gentle on her teeth.”

“I discovered several colonies of feral cats in the city of Charlottesville and thanks to Animal Connection, they can get some healthy meals. They are great about getting donations from some of their suppliers and making it possible for me to feed them on a small budget.”

"We love Carole... She is absolutely the best. She understands our Ebay (Schnoodle). He was rescued from an abuser. So we have had a rough time finding someone that can groom him without it taking 2-3 hours or more. Carole completely gets his quirks, she takes her time and he now gets groomed in one hour or one hour fifteen minutes. She has brought him a loooooong way from where we started... I HIGHLY recommend her."
