Rescue Partners

WHS New Logo 2007We have built long-standing relationships and partnered with our local shelters to make sure animals get to their forever homes. We have frequent in-store adoption events to create a venue for animals to meet their new adopters, and we maintain a generous Gifts for Goodness adoption program for new adopters.

We work diligently with programs like the WARL Food Bank to make sure WARL logo_HORZ CMYKthat short-dated food and products from our vendors do not go to waste.

More Than 10 Years In The Business

WOW, We can’t believe it has been 10 years since we opened our first holistic pet supply store in Takoma DC! 

Everyone told us we couldn’t build a store with eco-friendly supplies and made in the USA products and survive. There was no question that we would apply the same principles  of how we ate, lived and shopped to how we would stock & run our store. Now everything that they told us we couldn’t do has become mainstream!

Our Mission

Finding products with the least environment footprint,  and supporting small, local, minority, and fair trade companies when making product selections.  We actively make decisions to keep local money local instead of just using large national companies.  For our communities, providing a place where organizations with similar sustainable goals can come and provide information to the public.

DIY Projects

The construction is fairly easy, just follow these steps:

  1. Gather the supplies: Hol-ee Roller ball, strips of machine washable fabric (like fleece), dog treats (optional).
  2. Load the ball up with fabric strips and treats. Laura, the author, says she rolls the treats up inside some of the strips but that you shouldn’t do this if your dog won’t be able to figure out how to unroll the fabric.
  3. Let your pup go at it! They’ll use up a ton of energy playing and won’t leave piles of fluff around your house.

Remember that you have to pick toys best suited to your dog, so if they tend to eat things they shouldn’t than this may not be the best toy for them.

How does Tellington Touch help?

The Tellington TTouch is a gentle and unique approach to training and the care of companion animals and horses. Developed by internationally recognized animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones, this method based on cooperation and respect, offers a positive approach to training. It can improve focus, athletic skills, increase willingness and ability to perform and learn. TTouch provides solutions to common behavioral problems. It also helps establish a deeper rapport between animals and humans through increased understanding and more effective communication.

TTouch uses a combination of specific touches, lifts, wraps and movement exercises to help relieve fear, anxiety, tension patterns and increase body awareness. This helps the animal to overcome habitual fear responses. The animal is then able to learn new and more appropriate behaviors.

This helps the animal to overcome habitual fear responses. The animal is then able to learn new and more appropriate behaviors. By using TTouch you can assist your animal in experiencing self-confidence in previously frightening situations. It can also help your animal become more comfortable being handled so routine visits to the Veterinarian or Groomer are more enjoyable for your animal companion.

This fair, humane and respectful method is currently being used by animal owners, trainers, breeders, veterinarians, zoo personnel, wildlife rehabilitation and shelter workers throughout the United States and around the world.
