Animal Connection is the only store of it's kind in Charlottesville or for that matter, anywhere else. It is unique in offering helpful information and advice from the owner, Pattie Zeller and also knowledgeable, staff. In today's world of many food options, Pattie can help with the choice of the right food for each individual pet. I love Animal Connection and would not shop anywhere else. It's a charmingly interesting store, a delight to visit and will not disappoint. Excellent grooming is also available. Your dog or cat can find special treats and high quality toys. Thank you, Pattie, for what you've created in Charlottesville. Some of us don't like to shop in the big chain stores!
