Spay/Neuter

Spay/Neuter – Our Pet Counselors educate new puppy and kitten owners about responsible pet care. And as a store, we participate in cooperative programs with local veterinarians to offer customers discount incentives to spay or neuter their pet.

Pets For A Lifetime

Pets for a Lifetime – Occasionally, circumstances arise, making it hard for a pet owner to keep that lifetime promise to a Safari Stan pet. If this is the case, please talk to out Pet Counselors and let us help find a home for your pet. Our goal is to see that no Safari Stan Pets end up homeless or burden an animal shelter.

Safari Stan’s Pet Center Enhanced Protection Program

Safari Stan’s Pet Center Enhanced Protection Program – For our customers going home with a puppy or kitten, this is a strategic partnership combining a national microchip database registry with an Amber Alert-type service, providing an enhanced layer of protection for the pet and their family.

Make-A-Wish®

Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation’s mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors, and entire communities.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 144,000 children worldwide. A network of more than 25,000 volunteers enables the Make-A-Wish Foundation to serve children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Volunteers serve as wish granters, fundraisers, special events assistants, and in numerous other capacities. For more information on Make-A-Wish Foundation, visit the organization’s website at www.wish.org.
