About Contact Pets

We first opened our doors in 1999 in Blacon, Chester. As an independent store we built up a great local reputation which eventually enabled us to expand and open a much larger store in 2014 located in Deeside, North Wales.

Specialising in the exotic and unusual, we offer advice and support buying your exotic pets!!

So why not come on down and see us in store today!!

Our shop is located just off the A494 near Chester on the border of England and Wales and has a free car park outside.

Unit 68, Zone 1, Deeside Industrial Estate, Welsh Road, Flintshire, CH5 2LR.

We have friendly and experienced staff who always go the extra mile!!

Dave Clark has been keeping and breeding a wide range of exotics for over 37 years, adding to our combined staff experience of over 100 years!!

We have a strong ethos and only sell high quality products that we believe in and use ourselves. All animals leave the shop in excellent condition and the after care service is unique and extensive. We offer health checks, pet sitting for holidays and aftercare for all animals purchased, a high percentage of which are bred by ourselves.

When it comes to pets, we stock the weird and wonderful!!
