Everything we know about pets in Sofia will be covered in full detail for you today. Hopefully this will be a one stop shop where you can get all of the info you need as quickly and easily as possible.
Even though we are trying to discuss it all we still can’t think of a better way to begin than by listing the best Sofia pet stores. They should be able to help you buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, or other supplies and are probably the main draw to this page.
After they are out of the way we will get into the top local animal shelters for those who would prefer to adopt a dog, cat, or other pet instead of buying a new one. Dog lovers in the area will really enjoy our next three sections which are about dog parks, puppy trainers, and dog bakeries near you.
Then it will be time for you to read about pet grooming salons and dog or cat cafes near you. Anyone who travels often will enjoy our next sections which discuss local hotels that allow pets and also boarding facilities.
Our last topics will be a little bit doom and gloom like veterinarians and pet cremation services. Stick around for our pet map at the end, and you can read more of our posts for local animal lovers in Europe at that link.
Best Pet Stores In Sofia
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 Sofia would be:

There will be a wide variety of collars, leashes, toys, carriers, beds, and other pet supplies at each of those stores. Plus you can find many brands of healthy pet foods for dogs, cats, and other animals.
Animal Shelters & Adoption
These local animal shelters should have plenty of dogs and pets for adoption:
- Eco-Equilibrium at Blvd Princess Maria Louise 88
- Animal Rescue Sofia
Both of the above are awesome animal shelters that do great work in the community. Animal Rescue has The Farm Shelter and even a ranch sanctuary for abandoned horses.
They also have their Franziska Clinic which can provide some veterinary services. Eco-Equilibrium can provide free spay or neuter procedures, and in 2020 the Eco-Equilibrium animal shelter helped over 1,300 adoptable dogs find a new foster home.
They both are two of the best contacts to have if you are in a situation involving a lost or found dog, cat, or other pet in the area.
Few things will make them more excited than spending some time at one of these dog parks near you:
- South Park Dog Playground
- Geo Milev Dog Park

- K9 World School For Dogs at 1839, ul. Markova Livada 3
There will be a variety of options at the above ranging from group puppy training classes to private dog training courses. As you can tell by the name Hotel and a school for dogs Basil also has a boarding facility.
Additionally, they have special dog training classes for obedience and to prep your dog for competitions, shows, or tests. K9 World School For Dogs does dog walking and boarding too.
