We really appreciate you checking out our post on everything we know about pets in Springfield, Missouri. Whether you are a current owner or trying to find a new special friend there should be plenty of info here to help you out.
The best Springfield pet stores will get us going. We figure since they are a good place to buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, and supplies they will probably help more of you out than any of the other sections.
After that we will get into animal shelters for dog or cat adoption. Overpopulation is a major topic right now and many would prefer to go the adoption route which makes a lot of sense.
The next few topics will be for the local dog lovers. Dog parks, puppy trainers near you, and dog bakeries will be discussed in full detail.
Then we will dive into pet grooming and pet cafes around town. Hotels that allow furry friends 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 town for a bit we will talk about the best places for pet boarding near you. Up next we will get into some unfortunate topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation.
At the end there is a local pet map to help you figure out which places are closest to your current area. We have also written guides for other cities around the Midwest that you can look through if interested.
