About Us

AJ's Pets & Things was established August 12th, 1989.
It was the dream of the owner Andrew Willmott to sustain his hobby of aquarium keeping, which evolved into proper care and keeping of all animals.

Right from day one, it has been Andrew's mission to offer a large selection of animals and products and to back it all up with knowledge, and expert customer service. After twelve years as a sole proprietor, Andrew met a wonderful woman, Lisa Badach, with whom he shares his life, and who joined him in the business as equal partner. With Lisa's background in business, organization skills, and creativity, they have set the bar for caring and feeding of household pets.

AJ's has grown to two stores and eleven staff and has been voted best Pet Store in the North Okanagan by satisfied customers for ten years straight. All the staff are qualified in various levels of certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council, staff members are cheerful and love to share their experience and knowledge.

All this and fair, honest pricing keeps customers coming back. Visit AJ's soon to see for yourself.
