Braxton’s History

Founded in 1938 by Edward O. Braxton, Braxton’s Animal Works has become a third-generation, family-owned “institution” on the Main Line.

Since we opened our doors more than 75 years ago, we’ve seen lots of changes in the pet care industry, some fads and some remarkable innovations. But through all the years and all the changes one thing has remained constant, our commitment to our customers. Our commitment to carrying the right products and our commitment to friendly service and personal attention. Making sure that each and every customer who walks in the door wants to come back again and again. We’re proud to be a third-generation business, and proud to have many third generation customers.
