Supporting Local Business – McKinney’s Pet Lovers

SPOTLIGHT ON LOCAL BUSINESS: The Lowndes County Democratic Party is proud to support McKinney’s Pet Lovers located at 2000 North Ashley Street (on the corner of Park Avenue) in Valdosta.

In business since 1995, Tracy and Perry McKinney have a pet-centered point of view. Looking for natural and holistic products for their clients, they provide supplies for cats and dogs in one half of the store and fish, exotics and small pets in the other.

McKinney’s Pet Lovers employs five people who make sure customer’s pet needs are met. They can special order items if necessary and variety of favorite brands. They also sell supplies for farm animal needs as well as bedding, food and supplies for small animals.

Thank you for supporting local businesses!
