Thanks for joining us for this discussion on pets in Scranton. 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 Scranton pet stores. It shouldn’t matter whether you want to buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, or other supplies they should have what you need.
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 local pet map at the end, plus the curious types can look through our other Northeastern posts for animal lovers at this link.
