Our "Customer Service Team" and Premium Pet Supplies
(scroll down for a list of pet foods we stock)

Anyone stopping by Wild Birds Unlimited knows we love our pets as much as we love nature and we are happy to be able to share them with you when you stop by our nature shop.




In June 2012, we had been helping Sangamon County Animal Control by fostering and successfully finding homes for a string of kittens from the shelter.
Just days before our elderly cat, Flynn, passed away, a shy little black kitten happened to arrive into our store. Well, in his final days, Flynn must have shared a few kitty secrets with Lewis, because Lewis quickly blossomed into the most outgoing and personable of kittens, worming his way into our hearts and making our shop his home.

Being a rather bright cat, Lewis also writes his own Ask Lewis Q&A column in our e-Newletters. Be sure to sign up to receive them.

Whether chasing raindrops on TV or relaxing with a customer, Lewis knows how to enjoy himself.





In October 2012, we assisted the Forever Home Feline Ranch with a fundraising event and fostered young cats available for adoption. Martin made himself so comfortable at WBU that when the event ended and he had yet to find a home, we decided he needed to stay, joining Lewis as a permanent resident. 






Assistance Dogs

We volunteer for Canine Companions for Independence by fostering and training puppies slated to one day be assistance dogs for people with disabilities.
