About Us

allen washing dog at petwashHello! We are Jennifer and Allen Larsen, Owners of Firehouse Pet Shop here in historic downtown Wenatchee.  We are blessed to have four amazing children, (and 4 fur-babies!) and they have enjoyed spending summers in the Wenatchee Valley so much we decided it was time to move!  After almost 3 decades of successfully operating businesses for others, 2014 became the year in which we took the leap of faith to create our own dream!  Being lifelong animal lovers, we wanted to create a business that would allow us to serve and give back to the community.  Our vision was to break the mold of the boring and stale shopping experience of the typical pet store, and create a fun-themed, energy filled environment. 

Our Mission is to provide a wide selection of products that enrich and strengthen the lifelong bond between our amazing customers and their furry family members.

We also wanted to have all your Dog and Cat needs covered under one roof including; Healthy food options, Supplies, Self-Wash Spa, and Full Service Grooming.  We love finding unique items you can't find in a big box store. When you come into the shop we want you and your furry family members to feel absolutely spoiled with attention!  A Highlight of our shop is our adoption room, in which we partner with the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society!  It was an absolute no-brainer for us to open up in the downtown core, it is amazing to feel the heartbeat and vibe of the area, one that is very hard to find in a strip mall for example.  We are truly blessed and grateful for all the support from our family, staff, and our amazing customers!
