We will be breaking down everything we know about pets in Porto for you today. It won’t matter if you are a current owner or trying to find a new special friend there should be plenty of info here to help you figure out your next move.
Our opening section will be all about the best Porto pet stores. We figure since they are a good place to buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, and supplies they will probably be the most popular section of this post.
Dog or cat adoption at the best local animal shelters in your area will be up next. We all know that overpopulation is a major concern so the adoption route is the choice of many these days.
The dog lovers will get the most from our next few sections which are about dog parks, puppy trainers near you, and dog bakeries. Then we will jump into grooming and dog or cat cafes around the city. Hotels that allow pets to check in will also get their own section for any new visitors to the area.
You will also learn about the best places for pet boarding near you if you are traveling out of town yourself. At the end we will get into some unfortunate topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation.
There will also be a local map to help you figure out which places are closest to your current area. Pets in Europe is something we have talked about quite a few times in the past.
Best Pet Stores In Porto
It doesn’t matter if you are trying to add a member to your family or just need some new toys, food, or supplies the best pet stores in Porto would be:

- José Rodrigues Banhos e Tosquias at Rua do Cunha 210
- Sr. Cão & Dona Gata at Ave do Parque 373
Patinhas PetShop has supplies and food for dogs, cats, birds, fish, rodents and more. We could have listed José Rodrigues Banhos e Tosquias in a few sections because it is definitely more than just a pet store.
They also do grooming, dog walking, pet sitting, deliver pet food and supplies to your home, and even give dog massages. Sr. Cão & Dona Gata also provides a lot of services like dog training, walking, dog and cat sitting, nail clipping and boarding.
Animal Shelters & Adoption
These local animal shelters should have plenty of cute dogs and pets for adoption:
If you want to adopt a dog, cat, or other pet then both of the above can really help you out. Sociedade Protectora Dos Animais Do Porto also does vet care, while Vivanimal does good work in both Rio Tinto and Gondomar.
There is not much that will make them happier than spending some time at one of these dog parks near you:
- Paula Vallada Garden Dog Park
- Porto’s City Park
- Parque do Covelo
- Jardim do Passeio Alegre
It might be hard to teach an old dog a new trick but these puppy training services will give you the best shot:
Not only does Dogga Academy for Dogs have good options for puppy training but they also have a daycare and provide dog grooming services. COMtakto offers group puppy training classes but also has individual training for dogs and puppies and they have another location over on Rua de Pontelhas too.
More options for dog training in your area include Sr. Cão & Dona Gata, Shanti Pet, and VillaDog.
We are not aware of any dog, cat, or pet bakeries in Porto at the moment. If you know of any please tell us in the comments at the end of the post so we can add that info to this page, thanks.
Porto Pet Grooming
To help your dog or cat look better than ever bring them to one of these Porto pet groomers:
Not only can you get them looking their best if you try the pet grooming at Shanti Pet but they also specialize in behavior training and provide holistic therapies for animals. Como Cão e Gato does both cat and dog grooming.
Other places we have listed throughout the post that also do grooming include José Rodrigues Banhos e Tosquias and the Dogga Academy for Dogs.
Vegetable and cat lovers will really enjoy O Porto dos Gatos at Avenida de Rodrigues de Freitas 93 which is a vegetarian cat café near you. Just to be clear, this is not an all pet café, showing up with a dog would not be wise.
