"A Place for Pets" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season thirteen. In this episode, customers bring pets into the Krusty Krab, and Mr. Krabs learns pets are more profitable than owners.



While serving Krabby Patties to customers, Squidward starts sneezing. Realizing that it was because of his pet allergy, he discovers that Ms. Mildred snuck her pet snail Fifi into the Krusty Krab. He tells her that pets are not allowed, and Mr. Krabs confirms his statement. However, when she says that Krabby Patties are all that Fifi will eat, and that she'd gladly pay double for them, Mr. Krabs changes his mind and declares that pets would be allowed to come in from then on, much to Squidward's dismay.

Mr. Krabs is now making more money than ever he has before, but the Health Inspector comes in and tells him that he can't serve both people and pets in the same restaurant, as it is unsanitary. He makes him decide on only one, and Mr. Krabs decides to pick pets, seeing them as more profitable than their owners. He kicks all of the people out, and says that they'll still be paying for whatever their pets eat.
