Meet the Staff

 

Ever wondered what type of pets we have at home? Here's a little bit about each of us!

Rich

After 36 years of experience in the pet trade, Rich knows the ins and outs - whether its trimming your birds wings, choosing a new food for your pet, or troubleshooting your aquarium. He started the store for a love for birds and fish. Though he has an extensive knowledge on all topics, Rich is especially adept when it comes to the Aquarium side of PP&A. If you need to know how to start up a new tank or which fish will go together best, he's happy to help!

Deb

Co-owner Deb is married to Rich and has been working here with him since opening. Rich and Deb have two happy cats named Oliver and Lila at home. Always happy to help you find what you need, Deb is the first of us to know about new products on the market. Being a small business, we don't always have the space for every product we want to sell. Deb would be more than happy to try and order a product or food you are looking for that we don't stock. Along with Rich, Deb has an extensive knowledge of the ins and outs of the pet industry.
