Family owned and operated, Care-A-Lot® Pet Supply has been opened since 1988. Originally created by Mr. Alfred Clarke to meet the supply needs of his award-winning Airedale Terriers, Care-A-Lot® Pet Supply has developed into one of the leading Pet Supply companies in the nation. From its catalog and online store to its three retail pet supply stores serving the Newport News and Virginia Beach, VA areas, Care-A-Lot® is dedicated to great customer service, speed of delivery, and meeting your every pet supply need.

In 1983, after 24 years as a supply officer in the Navy, Mr. Alfred Clarke, with his wife Mary Clarke, started Mancon, Inc., a company which provides material support and logistics services to the federal government. In 1988, Mr. Clarke purchased an Airedale Terrier and his son Robert purchased a Labrador Retriever. Soon after, as a hobby, they began competing with them at dog shows. After attending several shows, Mr. Clarke discovered that the supplies needed to maintain “Show Quality Dogs” were difficult to obtain. Due to the lack of local dog product suppliers and the unreliability of catalog-based suppliers, Mr. Clarke decided to start his own pet supply company. Hence, the birth of Care-A-Lot® Pet Supply, specializing in providing hard to find items and providing excellent customer service.

In 1996, Mr. Clarke and his wife retired from Care-A-Lot® and his son, Robert Clarke, took over as President. Since then, Robert has implemented several new ideas, including a color catalog, an online ecommerce interface, and an additional store location. These new developments helped elevate the company into its current status as a national pet supply distributor, as well as, having the largest pet supply store in the state of Virginia.

Here at Care-A-Lot® Pet Supply we view our pets as family and our company stems from our passion to provide them with only the best. We may not be the biggest company in the industry, but we strive to be the best company for you and your pets.
