|On July 18th, 1992 we opened our doors to the people of the Moshannon Valley area. The idea to open a pet store in the area came from my need to visit pet stores regularly to support my fish hobby, as well as the growing number of birds and other pets I had. There was no pet store in the area at the time, so I had to drive to State College to support my hobby. After doing this for a number of years, and not being satisfied with the selection or service we recieved at other pet stores, I made up my mind to open a pet store locally. I had always felt that some day I would own my own business and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. There was a need and I had the desire. After months of research finding suppliers and the right location we were finally ready. My dad had just retired, so he was in need of something to help keep him busy. He was considering investing in a local sporting goods store, so I decided to approach him with my idea. He was excited about the idea, and we became partners. We were partners until I bought him out in June of 1999.
