Watching your pet get excited about a treat or new toy is a feeling unlike any other — they truly and unconditionally love you! Our goal is to make our clients (and their humans) satisfied in every way. We believe that the healthier the pet, the happier the parent, so we carry only the highest quality dog and cat food/treats. We provide not only dry and canned food, but raw, in all forms (frozen, dehydrated, air dried, and freeze dried) as well as lightly cooked fresh food. More people are becoming aware of unhealthy pet food ingredients and demanding healthier foods. We offer handmade accessories, as well as the necessary tools needed for owning a pet – training collars/leads and harnesses, crates, an entire spa collection of shampoos, conditioners, brush, well made luxurious beds, unique long lasting toys, and much more! Providing a safe, friendly and pleasing to the eye environment for you and your pet is what we do best!

Hala Helstien has always had a passion for animals and nature. After she graduated high school she knew she wanted to work with pets so she got a job at the local pet shop in Laguna Niguel, California. After becoming a manager and working there for 5 years, she had the opportunity to help open a pet boutique in Newport Beach, California. She worked there for 5 years and with the help of her husband, Justin, she finally had the confidence to open her own shop. Hala’s Paws was born in June of 2011 in Ladera Ranch, California. She couldn’t have done it without the help of her family and friends. She ran that store for many years before hiring employees. Having an amazing staff gave her the opportunity to look for a second location. In June of 2019, the second store opened in Mission Viejo, California. She loves serving the community and providing the best possible products. When she’s not running the 2 stores, Hala loves to hike with her dogs and travel to the mountains. She currently has two puggle brothers, Colter and Kenai, and a shepinois, Cooper. They are her life!
