The store's name describes a promise kept. Pet loving people are descended from ancestors that value animal companions as essential in their lives. From our family's first experience years ago up to our most recent we have always felt genuinely welcome. As is said, "Home is where you are understood." The unifying desire to best serve and care for our companions is always the main concern of the friendly & helpful knowledgeable staff. The selections of healthy pets coupled with an inventory of healthy diets and accessories, along with access to grooming & vet care needs completes the Center's fulfillment of any probable pet companions' requirements.

Awesome store, I moved here 8 months ago panicking on how would I find feeder mice & rats for my snakes, as many pet stores unfortunately don’t carry feeders in Sarasota. This store is very reliable with great staff who greets you soon as you come into the store, smiling faces, and efficiency.

Nice pet shop. Good variety of critters. They have fresh water and salt water fish and supplies, birds, reptiles and other furry animals.

Great shop, the family that owns and runs the shop are super friendly and helpful, good prices and an awesome selection of more unique and exotic pets. I love looking at their coral too. Great place to go!

Just picked up our beardie that we reserved on Friday. Took our baby home and followed the advice of Ryan as well as the dozens of hours of research we put into husbandry before getting a bearded dragon. Day one our beardie is eating well, both foraging crickets in his enclosure and hand feeding veggies. Despite being an hour in the car he seems healthy and relatively unstressed. Very happy with the staff and quality of our animal. Will keep this review updated as time goes on.

Excellent service and, more importantly, you can tell they really care for their animals.

WOW. I cannot say enough good things about this store. I was recently sold a bird from another shop that was sick and died. My husband and I were heartbroken and told that we probably did something wrong. We came here for a second opinion and Christine was SO amazing. She explained that it sounded like our bird was sick when we got her and it wasn't our fault. When we were ready, she took us around and let us interact with a few other birds they had there. She was so kind and patient with us. She wasn't in t for the sale which was a completely different experience from before. We left with our sweet baby Green Conure and she had paper proof that it is healthy! I will never go anywhere else for my pet needs. Thank you Family Pet Center!!!

Wish they had more wheels and water bottles for small animals. Otherwise it's great pet store to get exotic pet

I've been shopping consistently at the store for some time. I appreciate the knowledgeable staff and the high quality pet food that's available. Saving money by buying cheap pet food doesn't work. You'll just give the money to the vet later on. I tried the catnip spray, but my cat ignored it so I don't recommend that. They do have the catnip in small bags, and the cat loves it.

Absolutely amazing staff. Great selection and prices. We drive at least once a week about 45 minutes just to go here. One of the only places I can find the food for my pets that they need.
