Hiring in our Saltwater Department!

We’re looking for Saturday help in our saltwater department (potential for Fridays, too, if interested)! 🐡 Our weekends are BuSy, so the pace is fast but also FUN! With the excitement of weekend work also comes exciting benefits (especially if you’re looking to stock your own tank 😉🤫). Knowledge and experience with marine aquariums is mandatory.

Ready for the challenge? Apply online or stop in-store for an application.


❄️Closed 12/24❄️

We will be closed on Saturday 12/24 to allow our employees to spend time with their family and friends over the holiday weekend. We will be open today through Friday as normal (12 PM – 7 PM) to accommodate your shopping needs! We hope you understand and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Stay safe, be well, and stop to cuddle your pets amidst the hustle and bustle this week!

Happy Holidays,

Forest Lake Pets


Closed Memorial Day!

We may be closed Memorial Day, but we’ll certainly be here today through Saturday to stock up on whatever you may need to prepare for a long weekend away, including automatic and time-release fish feeders. Because let’s face it, we don’t all have that reliable someone to feed our fish…🤷‍♀️
