Community Businesses

I am so pleased to share pet-related and local business resources with you all. Supporting small business owners has always been an important to me and so this space is intended to list small businesses for the community at large.


San Gabriel Valley Businesses


Pet Food and Supplies

Centinela Feed & Supplies

A Los Angeles-founded company and Pasadena mainstay, I absolutely love the quality and selection of pet products and the shining customer service at Centinela Feed & Supplies. Well-maintained sales floor and well-stocked shelves speak volumes about how much the staff cares about providing an excellent experience for pet families. And they partner with rescue nonprofits in hosting adoptions events. What’s not to love about that? I’m a big fan of Centinela’s. Go there today and support this mom & pop operation!

With many locations throughout the Los Angeles Metro area, you’ll be sure to find one near you.
