Hey there and welcome to our site. We aren’t sure whether you are a current owner or are just thinking about it but either way there should be plenty of information about pets in Edmonton right here to help you plan your next move.
We will get this going with the best local pet stores where you can buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, and supplies. The top animal shelters near you for dog or cat adoption will get the next section.
Dog parks, puppy trainers, and dog bakeries will keep us going. After that it will be grooming and dog or cat cafes around the area. There could be a few tourists reading so we will mention some good hotels that allow pets in your area.
The best places for pet boarding in town will be discussed, and then we will finish it all off with unfortunate topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation services. Towards the end we will include a local pet map to help you figure out which places are closest to your current area. We have written many posts about Canada in the past if you are interested.
