Cat Adoptions

Since 2013 we  have helped adopt out hundreds of cats in-store via Animal Aid Shelter. Be sure to consider adoption as the first option when trying to find your next pet.  WE currently don’t have enough room to continue adoptions but strongly encourage adoption as the first option when considering a furry addition to your family!


Did you know that the backyard chook is Australia’s fastest growing pet?  We are pleased to offer isa brown point of lay Hens. Chickens make wonderful pets and not only provide you with fresh eggs but offer a great way to upcycle your kitchen scraps, the manure is also wonderful for your compost. We offer a full range of accessories and coops and advice to help get you on your way to enjoying fresh eggs.

How you can help reduce pet abandonment? Reducing pet abandonment is as easy as 1, 2, 3……..

1. Desex your pet – Desexed pets means fewer accidental litters, feral animals and strays.

2. Microchip your pet – If you are separated, your furry friend can be returned to you. Dog Tags start from $12 including engraving- Are your details up to date?

3. Get help! – If you’re having difficulty choosing the right pet for you, continuing to care for a pet you already have or you find an abandoned animal, speak to your local Just For Pets pet experts. They know how to help.

Claws n Paws Pet Supplies is a family owned, proudly independent store aligned with the Just For Pets Buying Group.  Opened in November, 2012 by Robert Thompson. It has quickly established itself as a destination store for thousands of Loyal members, Offering a fantastic range of quality products for all pets, unsurpassed knowledge by a team of dedicated, caring employees who continually go the extra mile for the customer. Claws n Paws Pet Supplies also offer in-store DIY Hydrobath facilities for only $5 per dog, Dog Grooming, Small Birds and Backyard Chickens.

After spending 3 years running a very successful PETstock store, the Opportunity arose to venture out on my own and do it my way. A shop in a great position in Bayswater North was available near other quality retailers including SUBWAY, Spotlight, Bunnings, The Good Guys, Officeworks,  Supercheap Auto, Autobarn and BCF, we must of been doing such a great job as after a year the big corporate owned Petbarn and Petstock opened up nearby. After 6 years at this location our rent hikes became untenable and we moved to our new location at 165 Canterbury Rd, Kilsyth.
We are extremely proud of our back to back Victorian Small business of the year in 2013 and again in 2014, awarded by the Australian Retailers Association and sponsored by the Victorian Government. We proudly took out Just for Pets Retailer of the year for 2013 and 3aw/Momentum Energy small Business of the Month for August 2014.
