Right now we are going to go on a deep dive into the local Ann Arbor pet scene. You all won’t be here searching for the same things but there should be enough information on this page to help you plan your next move no matter what that move may be.
Like usual we will kick this off with the best Ann Arbor pet stores. Puppies, kittens, toys, food, and supplies may all be purchased at them so they will probably assist more of you than any other section.
The best local animal shelters for dog and cat adoption will be up next. Following that we will get into dog parks, puppy trainers, and dog bakeries in your area.
Pet grooming spas around the city and dog or cat cafes near you will garner our next sections. We can’t presume everyone reading this lives here so we’ll recommend some pet-friendly hotels too.
As we progress we’ll talk about the best pet boarding facilities in your area, and we are saving the somber topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation services for the end. Make sure to look at the map towards the end so you can find out which spots are closest to where you are right now.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Midwest this link will take you to all of our other posts on the region.
