When it first hatched, Animal Kingdom was a tiny little store located in the Village of West Haverstraw, New York, going under the name Animart Pet Center. As the years went on, the store outgrew its quarters twice and went through two major expansions.
Also during these years, a second location was started and opened by friends in Mahopac, New York. This store, too, became a success and existed for many years under the name Animal Kingdom.
The two owners had a unique vision to open a larger store together and never lost sight of this. Finally, in 2002, a plan came together, with the help of others, to open an innovative and unique pet store in the conveniently located area of Brewster, New York. They wanted this store to really make a statement in today's marketplace and Animal Kingdom USA took hold and opened in 2004.
The Mahopac store was soon closed due to the close proximity of the new store, and the knowledgeable staff and owners put all their time into trying to make the just opened facility a success. Most of their dreams came true.
Some of the features of Animal Kingdom USA are:
The store's main focus is to educate clients about their pet's needs and to offer them the best products possible at a fair price. Many hours are spent cleaning and caring for all animals in order to ensure their health upon arrival in your home. And, we are always here when you need us!
We also offer vet clinics, dog and cat adoptions, dog training and scout/school tours. In addition, we work closely with AKUSAWR which is a wildlife rehabilitation and rescue organization that also offers an emergency hotline.
We even have some resident "Kingdom Critters" who will always welcome your visit!
Our selection of animals include: small mammals, birds, fish and reptiles. Of course, we have all the supplies for them, in addition, to dog and cat supplies and the foods to keep them healthy.
Hopefully, our story is without end. We strive to keep growing and improving with age. We encourage you to stop by and to begin sharing some experiences for future chapters in our life.
