Steve Vernon has always been a pet lover. In the early 1990s, he became very interested in his aquatic hobby. He began with a couple of tanks in his home office, expanding into into his basement, where the tank count reached over 100 by the end of the decade. Since it was Steve’s life-long dream to own a pet store anyway, he figured this was as good a time as any to ‘take the plunge.’

MVPets opened in 2001 in Portage, Michigan. In 2007 the store moved to its current location at 7429 S. Westnedge Avenue. The focus of the store is to provide quality products, service, and a knowledgeable staff to assist customers with their pet care needs.

Steve’s dogs, Taffy, Rocky, and Jamie are the store greeters and welcome customers and request petting whenever possible.

We want our customers not only to find quality pet supplies, but also to find that our employees truly care about them and their pets. We strive to give thorough answers to our customers’ questions about pet care and offer friendly service.
