Mounds (dba Mounds Pet Food Warehouse) is a small, independently owned pet food and pet supply retailer. We have 5 locally owned stores: 4 stores in Dane county and 1 store in Rock county.

Mounds started as a Mounds Agri Service, a livestock company, in Blue Mounds, Wisconsin.  By 1974 Mounds Agri Service expanded so quickly that owner Ken Mack moved the business to an old warehouse he rented in downtown Middleton. By 1976, Mounds Agri Service had outgrown the old warehouse, so Ken purchased a vacant lot on Highway 14 and began a steady program of building the mill facilities.  

Mounds Agri Service was initially a farm store, built to accommodate farm customers. Its primary business was the manufacture of farm feeds and fertilizers, with some pet food offerings. However, by 1984 the farm store was devoted entirely to pet food and pet supplies. Mounds began selling private label products: Dog Power, Purrfect Cat, Horse Power, and the various wild bird seeds. These products helped the company stay competitive and profitable when larger national chain pet supply stores came to the Madison area.

In 1991 Mounds located another pet food and supplies store on Madison’s east side. This store was so successful that in 1993 a 15,000 square foot Mounds Pet Food Warehouse was built at its present location on Stoughton Road. New Mounds locations followed: Middleton (1994), Janesville (1996), and Fitchburg (1997).

In 1999, determined to keep Mounds privately held and locally owned, Ken Mack sold a portion of the business to Mounds management staff members. Ken Mack passed away on March 15, 2000.  In keeping with Ken's original vision, Mounds become 100% employee owned in January 2015.

Now a five-store operation (Sun Prairie, 2006) Mounds is known for its community involvement. Mounds hosts several pet-related events each year and supports area humane societies, police K-9 units, rescue groups, and service animal groups. Mounds is committed to customers, their pets and the community at large. Mounds employees receive extensive customer service and product knowledge training programs which allows Mounds to offer a level of customer service that creates loyal, satisfied customers who continue to return to Mounds
