Helping your pets

rule since 2001

The DCR Difference:


Our Mission

Dogs & Cats Rule was founded in 2001 by George Parente and his sister JoAnn on the philosophy that pet parents should have access to the very best of natural and organic diets.

George spent his entire life as a small business owner and has owned a variety of businesses over the last 50 years, but has found his true calling as an independent pet retailer.

George and JoAnn opened their first location in Newtown, PA and have been growing ever since. Over 20 years later Dogs and Cats Rule has seven beautiful stores - proudly serving Bucks County PA, Montgomery County PA, and Mercer County NJ.
