OUR HISTORY AS A TUCSON PET STORE

Orville Kelvin “Bum” Post opened the store in 1936. At that time, Fort Lowell was a dirt road and the surrounding area was farm and ranch land settled by the Binghamton Community of Mormons. Though the Post Family has not owned the store since 1973, OK Feed & Supply has remained a locally and family-owned business that continues to evolve to meet the needs of its customers. As rural living in the area decreased, OK Feed began stocking holistic and high-quality feed, not only for livestock but for pets as well. At that time, most people were content to feed grocery store brands with low-quality ingredients. OK Feed set itself apart by providing premium, independent, holistic brands not available elsewhere and nutritional training to its employees. This gave birth to a passion to provide customers with exceptional nutrition and advice and the Tucson pet store you know today.

About the Products We Stock

We are fully committed to providing our customers with only the best products for their furry family members. You won’t find most of the brands that “big box” stores sell in our store and that is 100% intentional. We stock products that our staff believe in. We fully research and vet how, where, and who the products are made by. We look at how ingredients are sourced, where they come from, who owns the company, who manufactures the products and much much more! This Tucson pet store takes pride in only stocking the best products. Quality has been our focus for almost 100 years. We promise to always be that company for you.

Meet Our Amazing Team

We know that we can only be as good as the service we provide our customers. It has long been our belief that passionate, educated, and friendly employees are our “secret sauce” and is a reason why we have been in business for almost 90 years. Not too many Tucson pet stores can say the same. We’re not a big box corporate store selling products that may or may not be healthy for your animals. If we stock it, rest assured it’s a quality product. Our employees care so much about our customers and their animals that they take it upon themselves to learn about those quality products and how it will affect your animals. Our customers love this level of care and attention and our employees love being there to help. With almost 100 years of combined experience, we’re confident our employees are the most knowledgable of any Tucson pet store!

Smokey is a fiberglass horse infused with a ton of history. He started out on display inside the store until the 1980’s when the owner moved him to the roof. Since then, Smokey has changed colors several times, been stolen a few times, been roped off the roof, and been the subject of multiple news stories. Smokey has become the store mascot and an unintentional guidepost. He enjoys standing still. Sporting a facemask during fly season, and celebrating holidays.
