Attention LA locals - your pets should be shopping HERE!

Attention LA locals - your pets should be shopping HERE!

"Before moving to LA, I would always hear things like “living in a big city, you never get to know anyone” or “it’s so hard to make friends in the city”. But boy oh boy, does Downtown LA prove those theories wrong. There is such a powerful sense of
community here and it is beautiful. All of my customers are genuine, kind, and 110% badass. My customers are also very diverse because we are located in the middle of THE melting pot, which creates a very unique and open atmosphere at Pet Project LA. There is truly a sense of connectedness between each other even if you have never officially met someone and only seen him/her in passing. Everyone ALWAYS has each other’s back and is offering to help one another out. It’s amazing."
