Health & Happiness

Posted on Sunday, October 25, 2015 by Laura Amiton

Watching owners interact with their pets is something that brings me a lot of joy. It’s not hard to see the connection and bonds that are woven so strongly. I see this everywhere and every day in my store and it’s a main reason I am so encouraged to get to work and help people. It’s fun to hear the stories and view the photos being shared. I love to hear how they bring joy into your lives.

I believe that our pet’s health and happiness are directly linked to our health and happiness. Seeing our pets devour their food with joy, trot around the house looking for the next lap to sit on, or playfully seek out a toy, can give us something to focus on that is positive and good. We need lots of that in our lives!


Special Events at TFS

Posted on Wednesday, September 9, 2015 by Laura Amiton

August 29th marked our first adoption outreach event where we hosted CAT Adoption Team. Lots of people came in to interact with the adorable felines and one lucky kitten found his new home that day! In addition to the adoption outreach, we held a fundraiser for CAT Adoption Team. We raised $200 through our cat tree, food raffles and animal communication sessions. We look forward to future events with this amazing cat advocacy group!


Our next adoption outreach event will be with Deaf Dogs Of Oregon on Saturday, September 26th from 11am-2pm. Stay tuned for more details on this!


We are excited to announce a new monthly event: Birthday Pawday! Our first Birthday Pawday is Saturday, September 19th from 2-4pm. If you have a September birthday and/or your animal friend has a September birthday or adoption day, please make The Filling Station Pet Supplies a part of your special celebration! Stop in for complimentary treats for all, along with a birthday photo!

Our First Event: Cat Day!

Posted on Saturday, August 29, 2015 by Laura Amiton

Hello! While I’ve already met some of you, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Sindi Somers. I am the store manager of The Filling Station Pet Supplies. After eight years of living back in my birthplace of San Diego, I am excited to have returned to the Pacific Northwest. I spent the majority of my life in Western Washington. Memorial Day of this year marked the beginning of my life in Oregon. I am thrilled to be back amongst the green trees and cooler weather. Although I haven’t seen too much of the latter yet, I know it is just around the corner!



As store manager, I am excited to be involved in coordinating and facilitating on-site events. This Saturday marks our very first event, Cat Day, with free cat food and treat samples from open to close; 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.



For Cat Day, we welcome the Sherwood-based animal shelter Cat Adoption Team (CAT) from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. CAT is bringing 3 to 5 kittens and all will be available for adoption from our store. We can’t wait to welcome CAT and their feline friends to The Filling Station Pet Supplies! Other activities include a raffle for a cat tree, and animal communication sessions. All proceeds will benefit the Cat Adoption Team. For more information about CAT, please check out their website

The Day is Finally Here

Posted on Tuesday, July 21, 2015 by Laura Amiton

The day is finally here! I am so excited to open in Tigard. You see, I have been planning this store for over five years. The idea of creating a pet supply store with an attached drive-thru came to me when helping a customer at my other store, Healthy Pets Northwest in northeast Portland. My customer, a Mom, was desperate for her dogs’ food. The customer was frantic because she had a sleeping baby in the car and was trying, like all Mom’s, to do it all. I asked if I could do her shopping and bring her receipt to the car and what came from that interaction was a business idea.


I wanted to have a store that honored all the ways a pet owner might want to shop at a brick and mortar business. When it’s difficult to take the time to come in, we have the drive-thru. For more interaction, our interior space is friendly, warm and fun. Our desire is to listen to what pet owners are requesting and to offer thoughtful, knowledgeable interactions.


I’m really excited to get to know you! In addition, my team is exceptional. I feel very lucky.
