Our story begins long before the store was ever established. It begins with childhood dreams of Orca Whales, Peachfaced Lovebirds, and Golden Retrievers. It begins with a love for all living creatures. It begins with learning about creation. Matthew's parents, Mark and Ann knew since he was a young boy of his dreams of owning a pet store. It was no secret to them that Matthew would do everything possible to have his own shop, however it was their love, investment, & sacrifice that made the dream a reality. As a family business, we hold close the values that are imperative to a successful working relationship: faith, trust, and a sense of humor. Meet a few members of our family....
Mark & Ann Chase

Mark is a visionary; it is clear where Matthew learned how to dream big - from his father. Mark's years of business experience drive the store to be better than an average pet shop. Lessons of hard work, goal setting, and achievement standards were taught to Matthew early in his life, and have been critical in the store's success today. Mark spends his days optimizing processes and leading the Creation Services Department. Mark enjoys flying his plane, hitting a few golf balls, and playing with his grandsons when time allows.

Matthew's passion for animals came from both parents, but especially Ann. She was always encouraging him to research and learn about the animals for which he cared so much. She instilled in him a love for creation. Ann has a love of horses, birds, and dogs herself; when she's not taking care of the back-end paperwork at the store, spending time with Blackjack, her Tennessee Walking Horse is among her favorite activities. She loves spending time with her grandsons, and is currently teaching the oldest to ride.

Matthew & Amanda Chase
MEET MATTHEW. At a young age, Matthew discovered he had a passion for any kind of living creature - mammals, birds, reptiles, & fish. He loved learning about animals and how to best meet their needs. His mother, Ann, will often tell stories of the endless vacation stops where Matthew insisted on inspecting local pet shops to examine their selection of animals, husbandry methods, and overall presentation. He would dream of how to run his own store one day. Growing up in California, Matthew had the opportunity to care for many animals. A House Gecko and Box Turtle were among his first pets. He also has kept a number of dogs, horses, aquatic turtles, fish, and a special Peachfaced Lovebird (of course named Peaches!) His love for animals has not faded. Just ask his wife, he still visits at least one local pet store at every vacation opportunity. It's his enthusiasm that pushes the store to strive to be the best, and it's his passion for animal care that encourages a twelve year-old to put down their smart phone and observe a clownfish hosting an anemone. With three dogs, a cat, two chameleons, two Uromastyx, an Eastern Collared Lizard, and aquatic turtles at home today - it's safe to say that Pets are Personal for Matthew!
MEET AMANDA. It's hard for her to remember a time when she wasn't crazy about animals. Every school report was likely about something furry or swimming. One of the first books Amanda remembers ever reading in detail was a non-fiction book about Orca Whales. It didn't take long for her family to recognize she was also obsessed with horses and Golden Retrievers. While most girls her age had posters of popular boy bands on the wall, she had posters of sea anemones, puppies, and whales. At the age of seven, she welcomed her first dream pet, Flame, a dark red Golden Retriever; living to be almost 17, he will always hold a special place in her heart and big part of her passion for pets and their veterinary care. After obtaining a degree in Biology, she married Matthew and they embarked on their adventure together in developing the store as you see it today. Determination to offer the highest quality pet products is greatly influenced by years of working for a local veterinarian; Amanda wants the best for your pet, because to her - Pets are Personal!
"Here at Creation Pet, our goal is to offer the best service, widest selection, and healthiest livestock in the greater Atlanta area. Our early success is largely contributed to the support of the local community and aquatic clubs. Since our first day back in 2008, we have strived to exceed our customer's expectations and have been dedicated to continual growth and improvement. Each day that passes has provided us with the insight and inspiration needed to build the best customer experience in both our retail and maintenance departments. We recently renovated in 2013 to allow for expansion from a fully aquatic store to include pet nutrition and supplies; we also frequently work with local rescue groups and humane societies to host adoptions for homeless pets. Our goal has and always will be to welcome you to a place where Pets are Personal." - The Chase Family
