West LA’s Favorite Pet Stores

Here at Allan’s Pet Center, we’re just as wild about animals as our customers are. That is why for nearly 60 years we’ve been the most trusted pet store in West Los Angeles and the second location in East Los Angeles. We specialize in exotic pets and small animals, and we stock the best select food and supplies you need to care for them.
Founded in 1963 by Allan Saurin under its original name, Allan’s Aquarium quickly earned itself a spot in the Venice community as the go-to pet store for literally everything to take care of your pets. The historic Lincoln Boulevard location helped teach the city about animals, especially fish, for over 47 years and persevered through earthquakes, storms, and even the Los Angeles riots. In 2016, Allan and his wife, Marina, sold the building to Hollywood director and writer Jon Favreau and gifted their beloved business to their store management team.
Today, we at Allan’s Pet Center are proud to serve the folks in our new home of West LA. We are one of the last true pet stores on the west side and cater to nearly every need for our customers’ pets. We stock our shelves from floor to ceiling with everything you need to help your pet live its best life as your companion – if we don’t have it, you don’t need it.
Our staff is chock-full of pet experts. Unlike many other pet stores, we have first-hand knowledge about all the pets we sell, and then some, with experience either caring for them or as professional breeders. That’s how you know when you come to Allan’s, you’re getting honest advice and answers from people who have been through it all before.
