About Firehouse Pet Shop: Hello! We are Jennifer and Allen Larsen, Owners of Firehouse Pet Shop here in historic downtown Wenatchee. We are blessed to have four amazing children, (and 4 fur-babies!) and they have enjoyed spending summers in the Wenatchee Valley so much we decided it was time to move! After almost 3 decades of successfully operating businesses for others, 2014 became the year in which we took the leap of faith to create our own dream! Being lifelong animal lovers, we wanted to create a business that would allow us to serve and give back to the community. Our vision was to break the mold of the boring and stale shopping experience of the typical pet store, and create a fun-themed, energy filled environment.
