Welcome to Herne Bay Pet Shop

Located in the heart of the coastal town of Herne Bay, Kent there has been a pet shop on this site for over 50 years!

We are a local, independent high street shop with a wide range of products in stock to cater for your pet’s needs. Whether you have dogs, cats, cage birds, fish, chickens or small "furries" such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, ferrets or chinchillas we have something for you. And we also have a section of the shop dedicated to local wildlife – perfect for anyone who enjoys feeding garden birds, hedgehogs or the ducks in the ponds.

Herne Bay Pet Shop is a family run business managed by husband and wife Rob and Sarah (with the "help" of our 8yr old son Ed). We are also assisted during the week by our team, Amy, Jasmin, Helen, and Sara. Between us we have owned and cared for a variety of animals over many years so are able to offer help, guidance and advice backed up by our own personal experience.

We're a friendly team who are passionate about providing a great service at good value to all our customers and their pets. Please do drop by to say hello, pick up anything you need or just have a browse to see what we can offer.

Did you know that we offer free delivery every Tuesday and Thursday for pre-booked orders? You only need to spend £10 and we can bring the items straight to your door if you live in Herne Bay or the surrounding area (anywhere between Reculver and Whitstable).

Unable to see what you're looking for?  Just give us a call on 01227 375662 and ask - we can source most items for you.

"Rob,Sarah and their two-and-a-half-year old son, Ed, moved to Herne Bay, Kent, in 2013, but they soon realised the healthy work-life balance they longed for was not happening. Rob was leaving the home at 6.30am and not getting back until about 8pm, and Sarah was working the night shift as well as being a courier driver."

"Our ethos is about flexibility, friendliness and a warm welcome, being part of the community. It’s about being somewhere you can come and have a friendly response and talk to people with a knowledge base.”

"We are seeing second- and third-generation customers; they will say, ‘I used to come here as a child’. We want those children to keep coming back, and one day also with their families too. We want to remain friendly, welcoming and family orientated. A pet shop has been here for 50 years, and we want that legacy to carry on.”
