Nature’s Pet Market in Canby, Oregon has literally everything that a pet owner could need. Whether its wholesome food, aisles and aisles of supplies and a full-service dog grooming and self-wash service, Nature’s Pet Market has you and your best friend covered. “We provide everything pets and pet owners need, and they supply the fun to the store!” says owner Eileen Anderson.

What wasn’t fun however, was having to close down the grooming and self-wash stations at the store during the initial phase of the pandemic. “We were able to keep selling the essential food and pet products during the lockdown,” says Anderson, “but we felt a lot of stress in having to shut down other aspects of our business. I believe our customer’s pets felt that stress as well.”

The stress of the pandemic has been especially hard felt among seniors and that is an area that Anderson and Nature’s Pet Market is focusing their efforts. They are donating much needed pet food and supplies to a local senior center, and Columbia Bank is picking up the check. “This community has been very supportive of us, and we are more than happy to Pass It On to those most in need,” says Anderson.
