Hey there and welcome to this blog on everything we know about pets in Wichita. Hopefully there will be plenty of info here to help you out no matter what you are searching for.
Our opening section will be about the best Wichita pet stores. 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.
Up next we will get into 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 that are reading. Dog parks, puppy trainers near you, and dog bakeries will be discussed in full detail.
Then it will be time to dive into pet grooming and pet cafes in your area. 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 home for a bit we will talk about the best places for pet boarding near you. Other unfortunate topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation will round things out.
At the end there is a local pet map to help you figure out which places are closest to your current area. Click here to read more posts on animals in the Midwest.
