Buying the perfect gift for your friends and family is a must for most during the holiday season, but don’t leave out something special for the pets or pet lovers in your life! Shop local at one of the many small businesses in Grays Harbor and spoil your pet this holiday season.
319 S I Street, Aberdeen
A staple in downtown Aberdeen for over 60 years, Marshall’s Garden & Pet is a must-stop store for all of the pet lovers in Grays Harbor. Cats will be delighted to wake up Christmas morning with a new scratcher pad while the dogs will be happy chasing around their new ball or chew toy on the frosted grass. For those with more exotic pets, Marshall’s carries reptile food and care items that will keep them content into the new year. If you’re looking to surprise a family member with a pet of their own, consider picking out a fuzzy gerbil or mouse along with their needed supplies, or for those not looking for much maintenance, consider adding a colorful fish to the family that can teach kids the basics of animal responsibility.
Montesano Farm & Feed
412 S Main Street, Montesano
For some, the special animal in their life may not be a cat or dog, but instead a farm animal that also deserves a little spoiling this holiday season.

This local store also carries items for a more practical present such as flea control, horse blankets and treats as well as cat and dog food.
