Diane’s Discount Pet Supplies and Adoption Center Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary
Pottstown, PA – October 21, 2014 – In this age of big box retailers and online shopping, Diane’s Discount Pet Supplies and Adoption Center has accomplished what few small businesses can do – turn a passion into a business and then keep it alive for decades.
Diane’s is celebrating its 25th anniversary this month. A visit to the popular Route 100 retailer offers you an eclectic pet shop experience. You’ll find indoor/outdoor dog runs with litters of frisky puppies and an outdoor kennel with adult dogs looking for homes. In the cat window, you’ll see furry felines that stalk and pounce. Venture into the bird room and you’re treated to the chirps and squawks of dozens of feathered friends. The darkened fish room illuminates tank after tank of shimmering fish. Nearby you’ll find rabbits, chinchillas, and rodents – oh my! And let’s not forget the lizards, snakes, and frogs plus all the supplies you need to care for this varied menagerie of pets.
Diane’s has welcomed thousands of patrons through its doors in the past 25 years. An accomplishment that brings the most pride to owner Diane Dietch though, is the number of pets Diane’s has placed through its adoption center. “Since we opened in 1989, we’ve placed more than 15,000 dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens into homes,” Dietch says. “And with our spay/neuter clinic, we can take steps to help tackle an ongoing problem – pet overpopulation.”
Diane’s offers on-site spay/neuter services through the Affordable Spay Neuter Clinic and Pet Care, run by Dietch’s veterinarian husband Steven M. Silberman, DVM. In addition, Diane’s has introduced new services to keep up with customers’ needs. “We offer low-cost vaccine clinics each month,” Dietch adds. “Plus we have a self-service dog wash so people can leave us with the bath-time aftermath.”
Diane’s is wrapping up a month of activities to celebrate this milestone anniversary. Stop by to participate in the Pet Costume Contest, the Nano Reef Fundraising Raffle, and the Super Sunday Fish Sale. To learn more or search for an adoptable pet, visit www.ddpets.com or call 610.970.7500.
