The local Lawrence pet scene is going to be covered in full detail as this blog post moves along. We know you all won’t be here searching for the same information but there should be enough discussed to help you plan your next move no matter what that is.
We will start this one off the same way as we do all of our city guides and that is with the best Lawrence pet stores. Puppies, kittens, toys, food, and supplies may all be purchased at them so they will probably help the most of you out.
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 near you.
Pet grooming spas in your area and dog or cat cafes around the city will get your attention next. 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 unfortunate 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.
