Welcome to...
Bird Expert Ruth Hanessian's
Animal Exchange

a Pet Store located in the heart of Rockville, MD, specializing in locally raised pets. From hamsters to cockatiels, mice to macaws our customers bring us their babies to sell.

We have a large selection of birds and small mammals and smaller sections for fish, reptiles, and amphibians. We also carry dog and cat supplies including Precise Foods.

What's New

We have made a series of informative video clips for your enjoyment. Here is the complete list.

Check out the latest in the Store News section of our blog.

Birds live longer on a diet of our custom blends; we have one customer with a 21 year old parakeet and another with a 31 year old cockatiel.

We support the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. Ask Ruth how you can help.
