It's not really about us, it's about them and providing the best products available for the health and happiness of our canine and feline family members.
The idea of Muttropolis sprouted from the creative minds of two professional designers, a corporate marketing executive and an multi-unit restaurant owner/operator and was fueled by their love for their dog and cat family members above (literally and figuratively). Muttropolis was built from the ground up to grow from a strong foundation of creative design, quality products, knowledgeable, friendly service and unique style. Not another pet store but the ultimate, fun shopping experience for people who love their dogs and cats as much as we do.
Driven by our vision and passion, we opened our first store in the Cedros Design District of Solana Beach, California in 2002. Muttropolis became an important part of the community, a resource for finding everything for your dog and cat. We support many worthy causes and have been responsible for the adoption of hundreds of dogs and cats. Muttropolis is the social gathering spot for all breeds from AKC to XYZ and of course for the parents who bring them.
The success and acceptance of the Solana Beach store prompted the development of a second store in the Village of La Jolla, California, followed by a store in the Fashion Island Center in Newport Beach, California. These stores provided the perfect environment for testing merchandise and receiving valuable customer feedback. This experience helped us create Muttropolis.com where we bring our products and online service to the world.
From our research we discovered that not only did customers want a website filled with a variety of well-designed, healthy, useful and fun products, they also wanted a place to connect with other dog and cat owners. So we created our Muttropolis Community on Facebook as a place for people to meet and share training tricks, health questions, adoption tips and advice from canine and feline experts. People around the world have a place where they can share awesome pictures, videos and stories about their best friends.
To help us further expand the world of Muttropolis, we formed a stellar corporate team of passionate and talented retail and web professionals. They came from different backgrounds (mutts so to speak) but have a common bond... their love for their own furry children and their desire to make Muttropolis the best it can be.
With you and your pet in mind we created the world of Muttropolis and this website. It's the community and shopping site you've been looking for. Enjoy!
