Hello and thanks for checking out this post on everything we know about pets in Spokane. Most of you are probably already owners, others may be considering taking the plunge, but either way there should be plenty of info here to help you out.
Our opening section will be about the best Spokane pet stores where you can buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, and supplies. Up next we will get into local animal shelters for dog or cat adoption.
With so much overpopulation many would prefer to go the adoption route and we certainly won’t argue against that. The next three sections will be for the dog lovers who are joining us as they dive into dog parks, puppy trainers, and dog bakeries near you will be discussed in full detail.
Pet grooming spas and pet cafes in your area will get their own sections too. Hotels that allow animals to check in will also get their own section for any out of towners that are reading this.
Or if you are planning to leave home for a bit we will talk about the best places for pet boarding around the region. At the end we will get into some unfortunate topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation.
At the end there is a local map for animal lovers to help you figure out which places are closest to your current area. We have also written guides for other cities around the Pacific Northwest that you can look through if interested.
