Pet Valu, a retailer of pet food and supplies founded in 1996, has recently announced that it will be closing its 358 locations and warehouses, as well as its office in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Having been financially impacted by COVID-19 restrictions, as said by chief restructuring officer Jamie Gould, the company made the difficult decision and announced it on November 4th.
The Hungry Puppy understands that the closing of Pet Valu may have a significant effect on pet parents of dogs, cats, fish, birds, and small animals that have become accustomed to turning to their stores for needed supplies, such as pet food, treats, toys, and accessories. During this void and time of transition, The Hungry Puppy is committed to supplying local Pet Valu customers with all the essentials so that there is no gap in services or reason for your pet not to be taken care of.
The Hungry Puppy Pet Food & Supplies Store was established in 1987 and has since then become the premier pet food and supply retailer in Monmouth and Ocean Counties in New Jersey. With over 12,000 different products to meet the needs of dogs, cats, equine & farm animals, small animals, birds, and wildlife, we carry many of the same brands as Pet Valu.
Just some of these brands include Orijen and Acana by Champion Pet, Merrick, Primal, Stella & Chewy’s, Arm & Hammer, Blue Buffalo, Brown’s, Bags on Board, C&S, Charming Pet, Coastal, ChuckIt!, Diamond Care, Diamond Naturals, Earth Animal, Eukanuba, Espree, Ethical Pet, Fancy Feast, Friskies, Greenies, Homeopet, The Honest Kitchen, Hill’s, Iams, K&H, Kong, Lafebers, Lixit, Loving Pets, Natural Balance, Naturvet, Nutro, Nylabone, Nummy Tum Tum, Pedigree, Paw Thaw, Purina, Petstages, Royal Canin, Swheat Scoop, Spot, Taste of the Wild, Tidy Cats, Tiki Cat, ThunderShirt, Van Ness, Whimzees, Wellness, Weruva, Yesterday’s News, Zignature, Zupreem, Zodiac, Zymoc, and more.
Through these many brands, we provide a wide variety of the supplies pet owners may have sought through Pet Valu, as well as our own unique, high quality products. The Hungry Puppy has all the fundamentals, such as dry food, wet food, feeds, and mixes using high quality ingredients to provide a complete and balanced meal, delicious treats for rewarding and training, dishes and bowls, fun toys, grooming supplies including nail trimmers, brushes, shampoos, conditioners, clothes, litter supplies, medical supplies, dental supplies, bedding, crates, kennels, pens, bird feeders, cleaning products, and so much more.
Because we recognize the difficulties that the coronavirus has brought about to fellow retailers and pet lovers, The Hungry Puppy wants to make it as easy as possible for all pet parents to care for their fur babies through the pandemic, as your companion relies on you to help meet their needs, and more importantly, because our pets are the ones that are able to bring us so much comfort and companionship during these trying times. It is for that very reason that our store offers free local home delivery, as well as curbside pickup on all products, including those that are raw or frozen.
The Hungry Puppy’s mission is simple: to create a community that celebrates the relationships people have with their pets. Whether it is through fun events in our own dog park, training sessions for your pup, or the vast selection of products we stock, our purpose is clear… to help you foster a more meaningful relationship with your pet. Our goal and mission is only strengthened as fellow retailers and pet lovers encounter the effects of the global crisis together.
