Our story

V.I.  Pets was started by a bother and sister, John and Nancy Van Iwaarden,  in August 1988. They opened their first pet store in the Westshore Mall  in Holland Michigan. Over the years V.I. Pets has grown to its present  day chain of three pet stores in the Grand Rapids and Holland Michigan area. They are still owned by the same brother and  sister to this day!

V.I. Pets is the only full line, full service pet store chain left in the Grand Rapids area. V.I. Pets carries; Freshwater Fish, Saltwater Fish, Corals, Puppies, Kittens, Birds,  Reptiles, Small Animals, Ferrets, Chinchillas, and has the area's only  exotics license which permits them to sell Degu's, Sugar gliders,  Hedgehogs, Prairie dogs, and More! V.I. Pets also carries a full line of  supplies for all your pets needs.

 V.I. Pets takes pride in having the best employees in the industry and  always has the knowledge and experience you need to help with any  questions you may have.
