Puppycats Pet Emporium provides all the essentials for our precious pets

We can’t neglect our pets during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Luckily, the Puppycats Pet Emporium has come to the rescue, opening amid this difficult situation.

Sam Dockrill is behind the counter in the family affair with folks Terry and Linda, right next door to McBride’s Service Station at 9616 Chemainus Rd.

The Dockrills closed the deal to purchase McBride’s just before Christmas 2019 from the Myers family.

They also had plans in the works all along for the pet emporium next door.

There’s no need to drive into Duncan for all your pet essentials during this time and Puppycats provides the ideal opportunity to support local business and stay close to home.

The store is well-stocked with everything you’ll need for your pets, including the ever-popular Donald Trump dog toys and cat toys with catnip.

Puppycats is offering free delivery in the local area for those not wanting to venture out during the pandemic. Call 250-324-2220 for details.

Puppycats is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

There’s also a colouring contest going on for both Puppycats and McBride’s. See pages 6 and 7 of the April 9 Chemainus Valley Courier for details.
