Field Trip Checklist

Our History

In 2007, George Lennon and his with Julie opened their first Pet Supplies Plus® franchise store. As animal lovers and parents of five children, they understand that raising children and pets are life-long commitments to be cherished. They wanted to provide the best pet store shopping experience possible. Today, they have eleven locally owned stores operated by neighborhood pet lovers throughout the Chicago suburbs.

Our Neighbors

We'd like you to think of us as your neighbor. That's why our locally owned franchise stores are conveniently located in your neighborhood, with each location big enough to carry everything your pet needs, but small enough to feel like home. Our in-store team members will not only help you find the right products for your pet, but will also remember your pet's name.

Our Pets

We believe that people don't own pets—pets own people. As pet lovers, everything we do is genuinely designed to make pets happy, healthy and safe. It's this philosophy that acts as the foundation of Pet Supplies Plus®, propelling us forward as we work hard and continue to be America's favorite neighborhood pet store.

Our Products

We are proud to be the leading supplier of natural and raw pet foods with the widest selection of rawhides, treats and chews made in the U.S.A. Our Certified Pet Nutrition Advisors on staff can help guide you in choosing the best foods and products for your pet's breed and unique needs - all within your budget.

Our Goodwill

We believe that every pet deserves a safe, healthy and loving home. Partnering with local animal rescue organizations, we host adoption events at all of our locally owned and operated neighborhood pet centers. We organize fundraising activities that support local animals shelters, charities and local K-9 units. We also established The Plus Program that encourages pet adoptions by helping new pet parents through the entire process by offering tips, personal consultations and extensive savings.

We can't wait to see you and your pet! Visit your neighborhood Pet Supplies Plus® store today!
