Ontario Road Trip! Saturday December 5

We will be making a road trip out to hand deliver orders on Saturday December 5.  We will start the day making drops in the Ottawa area. From there we will head back to the 401 to make drops along the highway to the Toronto/Mississauga area. Next, we will be heading south to Hamilton, and going as far as St. Catherine's.  We will finish up by heading West to make drops in Brantford, Cambridge, Kitchener, and Guelph.   To maximize the number of locations we can drop to for the day, we will be setting up designated meeting places hear the highway where folks in each city can meet us to grab their orders.  Our schedule will be tight, so we will not be able to make drop offs at individual residences.

Since this is a special trip just for drop offs, there will be a $10 fee per order to help cover our gas and other expenses for the day. Anyone interested in a drop off should submit their order (either via our website shopping cart or email) no later than Thursday December 3.  All order must be pre-paid by the morning of Friday December 4, NO EXCEPTIONS!  We will not be accepting cash at drop-offs. 

2020 Last Shipping Day December 2:

We will be taking a break form shipping live animals during the holiday season, as the shipping companies are overwhelmed with holiday packages, and chances of delays or other problems in transit are high. December 2 will be our last shipping day of 2020.  We recommend that folks get their orders in no later than November 30 to allow enough time for the order to be processed. We will continue to take orders through the shipping break, and will resume shipping January 11, weather and temperatures permitting. We will continue to ship dry goods through the holidays, but for packages that need to arrive in time for Christmas, we recommend to get orders in by December 18.

Resuming Store Hours

We have decided to resume store hours at the shop this week, however, special protocols will be in place to respect social distancing.

-No more than TWO visitors or one family in the shop at a time.

-Visitors MUST wear a face mask and sanitize hands with sanitizer provided when entering the shop.

-Please limit visit to 10 minutes

-Visitors will not be allowed in the back section of the shop (do not move past the white and black tiles)

-We will ONLY be accepting credit card,  debit cards, or mobile payments. NO CASH.

-We are still encouraging folks to make pre-orders to make a quick pickup at the shop.

YES! We are shipping!

Lots of folks have been emailing and asking if we are still taking orders and shipping during these uncertain times.  The answer is yes, we are still shipping as usual and we will continue to do so as long as the shipping companies continue to pick up shipments direct form our facility and deliver them on time.

Coronavirus update

We have been contacted by folks with questions regarding shipping, store hours, and expo schedules with the precautions that have been put in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.  We will post updates as the come in here:

SHIPPING:  The shipping companies are still operating as normal, so until further notice,  we are still shipping, but with a few adjusted procedures.  To make sure the boxes are on the first trucks out for delivery, we are requiring all shipments to use Priority Overnight service (this is just $2-$4 higher than Standard Overnight service in most areas).   The shipping companies have switched to a "contactless signature" system, meaning that you will not need to physically sign for the box, however, someone must be home to receive the box.  The delivery personnel will NOT leave the box behind if no one answers the door.

SPECIAL NOTE- Prevention of the spread of the virus: At the shop, we are doing everything we can to protect ourselves and prevent the transmission of infections.  We have protocols in place to ensure our facility is as germ free as possible and that the boxes are clean when they are packed.  This includes cleaning and disinfection of our facility, and limiting access to the building. But rest assured, if anyone on our staff shows symptoms of illness due to COVID-19, we will suspend all shipping until there is no longer a risk for transmission.
