and welcome to our online store - we're as happy as your pet(s) that you've found us online!
We love our pets (and yours too) - having kept all sorts of furry (and non-furry) pets ourselves, we love all animals.
Take a look around our website or come in and see us at 59 Ridgeway, Plympton for all your pet and wildlife needs
So you've found us!
Firstly, welcome to our online store.
What can we say about ourselves? Well, we're Mark and Shaun, and we love animals: we love pets, and we're passionate about every pet - from fur to feathers, fins to wings and paws to claws, we love them all!
Our love of our own pets over the years led us to here, and Ford Pets, our beautiful independent pet supplies store in the heart of the Plympton community.
Get to Know Us
So, it all started when Shaun had the grand idea of starting an online shop selling pet accessories from our spare bedroom in our home in Harlow, Essex back in 2015.
On deciding to move back to Mark's home city of Plymouth, this idea grew into the idea of buying our very own pet shop, so in November 2016, whilst looking for a new house in Plympton, we also met Andy & Myra in a little pet shop in the Ridgeway, Plympton called Petsavers.
We fell in love with that little pet shop and on April 1st 2017 (yes, April Fool's Day!), we officially took over what is now Ford Pets.
Fast-forward to now and we've come such a long way since then, changing the shop, introducing new and exciting products and spending time to get to know the locals, all the time becoming part of the local community.
We still have lots more ideas and new things to bring you, both in-store and online - so keep watching this space . . .
