The process of turning these stores into Mud Bays began with giving staff the kind of education in dog and cat physiology, nutrition and the pet food industry that would enable them to help owners choose the right foods for their animals. From education, we moved to inventory, phasing out lower quality, less natural products—and products for animals other than dogs and cats—to make room for a deeper selection of natural foods and supplies.

The city council began discussions to prohibit sales last year after Har Mar Pet Shop, the only store in the city that sells dogs and cats, received a troubling inspection report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The and sparked a citizen-led movement to end the practice citywide. Other pet stores in town, such as Petco and Chuck & Don’s, sell supplies but don’t sell dogs and cats. They do, however, host adoption events with area shelters. Gallery: Store employee Amanda Thompson with some of the dogs currently for sale at Roseville Pet Store in the HarMar Mall.

We are committed to being more than a store, but also a productive part of our community. Lofty Dog is extremely happy to host several events on a regular basis to help raise awareness and funding for local area animal rescue groups. Proceeds from our many events are distributed to these groups for veterinary care, medicines, spay/neuter services, and community outreach. Please take a look at our events page for an opportunity that might interest you and your pets as well.Where to buy a dogSome people want to get a purebred puppy and think their only option is to go to a local pet store or dog breeder near them. That's certainly one way to get a purebred dog or puppy, but many people don’t realize that sometimes purebred dogs and puppies end up in shelters and need homes as well.Any dog of any age can end up in a shelter. Someone may breed their purebred dog to sell the puppies but then not find homes for all the purebred puppies. Or someone might buy a puppy from a breeder or a pet store, and then be unable to keep the puppy. Perhaps they cannot afford the care, or there is a crisis in the family that requires them to find a new home for their dog. They may not be able to return the puppy to the dog breeder or pet store, and so the purebred puppy might be taken to a shelter to find a new home.Adopting vs BuyingWhen people want to buy a dog or buy a puppy from a breeder or pet store, more and more people are first searching their local animal shelter or purebred rescue group to see if there might be a purebred dog or puppy they might like to adopt. In most cases this is a cheaper way to buy a puppy. Adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue also saves a life, so if you are looking to find a breeder or visit a pet store, please consider as an option adopting a dog from your animal shelter or rescue organization near you.Michelson Found Animals Adopt & Shop pet store in Culver City was conceived in support of a single belief: all pets deserve a loving home.

We love each of our animals, and get a sense of fulfillment every time we see them placed in the perfect home.Any dog of any age can end up in a shelter.
