Official Grand Opening of Salty’s Pet Supply Online Store

Shop 24/7 When It’s Convenient

Salty’s Pet Supply Customers Can Now Buy Products Online, Pick-up in Store (Staff Will Run Orders Out to You!) 

Salty’s Pet Supply is offering customers a new alternative to shopping in-store for the days where errands are virtually impossible. 

Now anyone can shop 24 hours a day, seven days a week online. Top sellers are available online and all customers need to do is pull up in front and one of our staff will come out with your order. If a customer’s fave brand isn’t available online, we ask them to reach out to any of the staff and we’ll get a special order set up. 

“We understand how traffic and parking in the neighborhood can make errands difficult for customers so we wanted to make sure shopping was convenient for everyone,” explains owner, Nancy Fedelem. “We have a customer that recently had a baby and we realized how hectic life was now that the baby is born. Now she buys all her dog’s food online and calls us when she’s on her way. Our staff simply brings it out to her car.” 

Pricing is the same online and off


The prices for online shopping are exactly the same as the pricing in-store and there is no additional fee for the online service. Food purchases will be credited to customers that are part of our established frequent buyer program. 

If a customer needs to return an item, they do have to come into the store! If you have any problems getting to the store, just call our staff! The rules of engagement are simple. Order online and come pick up your items at the store or call ahead and we’ll run them out to you! 

PROMO CODE: If you use NOWOPEN when you check out you’ll receive a 10 percent discount off your entire order. This code can only be used once per customer.

Here’s what the navigation looks like:

You can shop for your cat or dog. It’s so easy.

The brand categories are also easy to navigate. 


Shop your fave brands! 

Please ask the staff if you have any questions or cannot find a brand you typically order. As you know, we always have new products available in-store and we want you to come in when you have time to visit with our staff! This is absolutely for those times when online shopping is just easier.

We want to help our customers as we know you all are busy! 



Feeding Cats a Raw Food Diet: Is it Safe?

Feeding Cats a Raw Food Diet: Is it Safe?

Felines are obligate carnivores.

Cats are super picky eaters, and sometimes it requires a lot of patience from cat owners when trying to find the food their feline friends love to eat.

We suggest feeding cats a raw food diet if you’re ready to make the transition and it’s a great time if your cat is putting their nose up at their existing meal.

The SprucePets.com tells us:

“Feeding cats a raw diet means feeding them uncooked animal muscle meat, organ meat, and bones. This type of food is sometimes called the BARF diet, which stands for “bones and raw food” or ” biologically-appropriate raw food.”

Commercial diets are available, and we have some great recommendations for what you can buy here at Salty’s Pet Supply.

We interviewed the store manager, Tim Gonzales about feeding cats a raw food diet and why this is one of the most popular questions he gets from cat owners!

Cats (carnivores):

Q1. Why should pet parents consider feeding their cats a raw food diet?

A1. The main reason is that cats don’t get enough liquid on their own (moisture is SO important). Since this is such a common problem in cats and urinary issues are something cat owners worry about, a raw diet is a wonderful solution. Also, there are freeze-dried raw diet options and adding water is an important step which is another reason to feed a raw diet. We recommend both types of raw diets.

Q2. Do cats need veggies and carbs in their diets at all?

A2. No! They don’t need either! They can only tolerate carbs in small amounts.

Q3. What are the health benefits of a raw diet for cats?

A3. The number one benefit we talk to cat owners about when they ask if a raw diet is the right choice is healthy skin and coat. It’s amazing the difference you’ll see. Second reason? Along with this comes fewer hairballs and better digestion.

Q4. Is feeding cats a raw food diet safe?

A4. Their bodies and digestive tracts can handle the foodborne illnesses that we worry about and the brands we carry specially treat their food, so it’s safe for pets.

Q5. What ingredients are in a raw cat diet?

A5. Muscle meat, Organ meat full of taurine, ground bone or eggshell for calcium and kelp or another mineral supplement added back in to make it a complete diet.

Q6. Which brands do you all recommend for cat owners?

A6. Cat specific:

  1. Small Batch
  2. NW Natural
  3. Newest Wild Coast Raw (brought in recently)

“I think that with cats, it’s always important to remember that if your cat is picky, consider rotating the proteins. Rotate within the same brand, and all you’re changing is the protein source.

So you’re adding nutrients that aren’t in the other protein. 

Explore what your cat likes!” – Tim

Please Donate Dog Supplies to Jake n’ Max’s Boxes of Love Event

Please Donate Dog Supplies to Jake n’ Max’s Boxes of Love Event

In Memory of Vonnie Harris and For the Love of Senior Animals

For the 6th year in a row, you can donate dog supplies at Salty’s Pet Supply (and our sister stores) for seniors. The store is a donation site for Jake n’ Max’s Boxes of Love and the decorated boxes are filling up!

This event is a tribute to the unwavering love of two beloved senior dogs and the drive collects donations of everything from cozy comforts for seniors, supplements for older guys, toys and any item that can brighten the lives of sweet adoptable animals at Animal Aid that need a little extra help and love. Animal Aid’s heartstring animals are featured in this campaign.

Boxes of Love
Animal Aid Heart String animals for adoption!

The campaign runs through Feb. 14 and you can donate dog supplies anytime! In year’s past, we’ve delivered nearly a carload from each store with donations of beds, food, treats, and supplies thanks to our generous customers!

This is also a very special event as we’re remembering our friend and colleague Vonnie Harris, the mastermind, behind Jake n’ Max’s Boxes. Vonnie passed away in 2018 and we miss her. A tribute was written last October.

Longtime Spot Magazine editor, Jennifer Mccammon, tells us,


“Vonnie Harris and her sister Viki created Jake ‘n Max’s Boxes of Love as a tribute to their beloved Labs, Jake and Max. The pair worked tirelessly to help “oldsters” by collecting gear and goods for senior pets each year. The project required finding partner businesses to serve as donation sites, decorating large boxes to contain donations (in later years the pair invited local seniors to participate in this), collecting and finally delivering donated goods to the beneficiaries — rescues serving senior pets.
 
We carry on Jake ‘n Max’s Boxes of Love out of gratitude for Vonnie and Viki’s care and service, and to honor Vonnie, who passed peacefully October 29.
 
For the love of senior pets . . . for the love of uplifting others . . . for the love of Vonnie.”
