Raleigh Pet Stores, Shelters, Dog Parks & More

Pet stores Raleigh dog parks grooming animal shelter

Thanks for checking out this discussion on pets in Raleigh. Our goal is to cover the topic in full detail so you can find everything you need right here on one page.

Even if we are trying to cover it all we still can’t think of a better way to begin than by listing the best Raleigh pet stores. It shouldn’t matter whether you want to buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, or other supplies they should be able to help you out.

Then we will get into the top animal shelters near you for those who would prefer to adopt a dog, cat, or other pet instead of buying a new one. Local dog lovers will really enjoy our next three sections which are about dog parks, puppy trainers, and dog bakeries in the area.

Up next you will read about pet grooming salons and dog or cat cafes near you. Frequent travelers will get the most out of the next sections which discuss local hotels that allow pets and also boarding facilities.

Our final subjects will be a little bit doom and gloom like veterinarians and pet cremation services. To get a better lay of the land stick around for our map at the end, plus the curious types can look through our other Southeastern local pet guides at that link if interested.

Best Pet Stores In Raleigh

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 Raleigh would be:

Animal Shelters & Adoption

If you would rather adopt a pet then buy a new one head to one of these local animal shelters:

The SPCA of Wake County is a great place to adopt dogs, cats, or potentially even other pets. They also accept volunteers and donations because keeping up with all the strays in the area is hard work.

You can also contact them to see if they can offer any assistance if you find yourself in a situation involving a lost or found dog, cat, or other pet. As you can tell by their names the other two focus on cat adoptions.
