OUR STORY

Behind the website of this hometown pet store are the hearts and spirits of its co-owners, Lee Morris ("Ma") and Mark Young ("Pa").

Out pet store story begins in 1972 when Lee was introduced to the world of dog shows while working as a kennel assistant for a professional dog trainer and dog show handler in Anne Arundel County. From the very first show she attended, Lee was captivated by the magnificent beauty of the various breeds and in awe of the wealth of expert handlers who cared for them. It was then she began to develop what are now All For The Pet’s high standards of care for animals.

Lee quickly realized how complementary dog grooming is to dog show preparation and opened our first shop, All For The Dog,  in 1975 offering dog grooming services and a selection of dog food and dog supplies (dog treats, dog toys, dog leashes, dog collars). Influenced by her hands-on experience with many of the nation’s elite show dogs, Lee fell in love with Boxers and began breeding them in 1978. Meanwhile, our dog grooming shop expanded its inventory to include cat grooming services and a selection of cat food and cat supplies (cat treats, cat toys, kitty litter).

Over the years, our passion for all animals persisted and motivated us to expand into a full-line pet store (birds, fish, reptiles, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, and supplies) in 1984 when we officially changed the pet store name to All For The Pet. Lee and Mark have expanded All For The Pet twice since 1998 to include minor medicinal and preventive health products (supplements, oral care, homeopathic and antiseptic), unique small mammals (chinchillas, hedgehogs, ferrets) and supplies (hay, bedding, food), grooming supplies (brushes, shampoos, diaper garments), [this part will be completed once the other sections of website are completed to show the relationships]. Our dog grooming and cat grooming services now include nail clipping for small mammals, while other services include self-serve dog washing station, as well as boarding (rabbits, chinchillas, guinea pigs, birds, reptiles, fish). We also partner with local organizations to support homeless animals, host seminars and events for public education and recreation, and are members of several professional associations.
