About Three Paws Pet Supply
Located at the South Waterfront in the Emery Building in Portland, Oregon
Three Paws Pet Supply located in the Emery Building in Portland Oregon, opened its doors in 2017 as a neighborhood store where owners could walk from their houses or apartments to find a friendly store stocked with a wide variety of affordable supplies, including food, toys and accessories for cats and dogs.
Owner Nancy Fedelem has three stores; Saltys, Fang and Three Paws, all thriving businesses, earning a loyal customer base that appreciates the expert advice and varied selection of top-quality food and products. The personal service and attention that the store’s team gives their customers ensures the very best recommendations for each individual pet’s needs. Three Paws is proud to be an integral part of the thriving South Waterfront neighborhood.
Nancy’s businesses are deeply committed to giving back to the community served. Over the years, the stores have partnered with numerous local rescue organizations, providing space for outreach, hosting pet food drives, donating food and supplies, and making monetary contributions.
The many groups supported include:
It is probably no surprise to anyone that Nancy loves animals, but what you may not know is that her love for dogs was not immediate. Her first pets were cats, including Rosie, who lived a long and happy life of 19 years, and James, a street kitten who followed her home one night and now lives the good life. But it was the Rottweiler/Lab mix named Monk Nancy’s husband adopted just five days after their wedding who changed everything. Monk made Nancy a dog lover, growing her love for animals and eventually leading her to run her own pet supply store.
As the owner of Saltys, Fang and Three Paws, Nancy is involved in every detail of running the stores, but her favorite part of the job is helping customers find the best food, treats and toys to give their pets a great life. Nancy lives just a few blocks from Salty’s with her husband and family of now four dogs and one cat.
From Nancy’s dog, Parker:
My full name is Parker J. Bearington and I am a Border Collie/Lab mix…I think. Before my owners adopted me, I was a street dog in Panama and was rescued after being hit by a car. The fact that I lost my leg in the accident doesn’t really phase me. I get around just like any other dog. I am very loving but also demanding and a big ham for attention. No one can resist my soft ears and sweet, loving brown eyes.
I love visiting the store with my mom where I am the official manager of the treats table, making sure all of them are delicious enough for our discriminating doggy customers. I am paid in belly rubs.
