Pets in Del Mar Heights

Select Local Merchants

Dexter's Deli fuels cats and hounds with holistic pet foods and entertains them with a host of toys. A raw-food diet's easy-to-digest mix of antibiotic-free meat and organic veggies is a healthy alternative to your pet's usual meal of rocks ($3.59–$56.95), and dry or canned foods for dogs ($6.95–$70.95) and cats ($10.95–$17.95) serve as a more traditional hunger defeater. After a hearty meal, Fido can drift off in a dog bed or pad ($24.95+), where he'll have dreams about chewing on newspapers or serving on the Supreme Court.

Since the age of 7, Dr. Robert Stonebreaker shared a special affinity with all birds. Wanting to bring people closer to his feathered friends, he lent his passion to Free Flight in 1989, helping evolve the avian boarding and breeding center into a sanctuary where visitors could interact with the exotic creatures. Amid open air and emerald palm fronds, guests can let a yellow, orange, and green sun Conure perch on their arm or pet a Timneh Grey. The tropical oasis also teems with Koi lagoons, where schools of shimmering Koi swim under the flaps of fluffy white Cockatoos soaring through the aviary.

Dr. Stonebraker tragically passed away in 2010, but the team at Free Flight has upheld his tireless work by fostering human-avian relations and furthering visitors' understanding of parrots. Free Flights also encourages involvement through donation, membership, volunteer opportunities, and, most notably, education programs.
