Dog or cat adoption at the best animal shelters in your area will be up next. With so much overpopulation 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.

We could have listed both of the above in the best pet stores near you section because they both offer a lot more than just grooming including a wide variety of premium pet food. With that said they are also both good spots for pet grooming and we needed something to put here.

Paw by Paw Sugar House provides full service grooming, has a self-wash station, but also has a dog bakery where they make pupcakes, biscuits, bones, cookies and other treats. Paw Paw’s has a self serve dog wash station if you want to avoid the full service grooming costs, plus they have a boutique with stylish collars, leashes, carriers, and clothes for pets.

Tinker’s Cat Café is not an all pet café it is for cats only so please do not show up with a dog or it may not go well. You may also want to know that the cats at the café are adoptable.
