Petey’s Pet Stop was founded by Linda Sterling and Beth McCarty, both occupational therapists and animal lovers.
With 3 dogs and 2 cats of their own, they certainly understand the complexity of owning pets! Petey, Red and Izzie, along with their two cats Hank and Buzz, make for a busy household. Linda and Beth are also very active in the Cincinnati community. They both support locally-owned businesses, walkable communities, and healthy lifestyles for pets and their families.
The real story is that Linda and Beth love Clifton, wanted a new direction, and Petey's Pet Stop was founded. As a family-owned, local business, they want to provide quality products and services in a fun and unique environment in a neighborhood setting.
A short note about Petey, our store's CEO. Petey was found in Fairview Park apparently abandoned and about a year old. We knew he was a good boy when he sat and gave paw for a treat. Pit Bull/mixed breed dogs were not welcome in the area adoption centers at that time. He had such a sweet face that we brought him home, until we could find him a good family. He never left. His favorite pastimes include sleeping, sleeping in the sun, sleeping on the couch. He also is one of the blood donors at Howell Ave Pet Hospital. We call it “Petey giving back.”
Our primary focus is on Local and American Made Products from food, treats, toys, pet beds, cat condos, and other accessories. We evaluated each product and company to assure quality and safety before putting it on our shelves. Looking for a special product? Let us do the research. If you need a food line we dont have on our shelves, we will order it and have it ready when you need it.
We look forward to meeting you and your pets!
