Thanks for checking out this blog about pets in Worcester. 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 Worcester pet stores. It shouldn’t matter whether you want to buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, or other supplies they should be able to help you out.
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. Anyone who travels often will get the most out of the next sections which discuss local hotels that allow pets and also boarding facilities.
Our last 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, and the curious types can look through our other posts on cities around the Northeast at that link if interested.
Best Pet Stores In Worcester
Visit one of the best Worcester pet stores if you want to buy a new puppy, kitten, toys, food, or other supplies:
- Gibson’s Natural Pet at 994 Grafton St
- Fuzzy Pants Pet Stop at 276 Shrewsbury St #2824
- Tatnuck Pet Supply at 458 Park Ave
Sometimes we struggle to figure out where to put certain businesses because they don’t always fit perfectly into our cookie cutter lists. For instance a place like Gibson’s Natural Pet is not just a pet store, they also have a dog bakery, a pet daycare, provide grooming services for both dogs and cats and even have puppy training classes.
Fuzzy Pants Pet Stop also has a pet spa for grooming and a daycare. Then there is Tatnuck Pet Supply who also provides services like dog walking and pet sitting.
But rest assured that you will also find a wide variety of healthy pet foods for dogs, cats, and other animals plus all of the collars, leashes, toys, carriers, beds, and other supplies you may need at each of those stores.
Animal Shelters & Adoption
The local Worcester Animal Rescue League shelter at 139 Holden St always has adoptable dogs, cats, and other small animals available. They have a clinic that can help with low-cost veterinary services like vaccinations, spay or neuter procedures, or microchipping too.
And they are one of your best contacts if you find yourself in a lost or found dog, cat, or other pet type situation.
Nothing will brighten their day more than spending some time at one of these local dog parks:
- Vernon Hill Park

All of the lessons at Off Leash K9 Training are private. Gibson’s Natural Pet and Woof Pet Resort also have dog training classes.
Quite Fetching Barkery and Pet Boutique which is located at One Grafton Common #114 sells custom dog birthday cakes, pupcakes, homemade cookies and other pet treats. Remember that earlier we also mentioned that Gibson’s Natural Pet Store also has an on-site dog bakery.
Worcester Pet Grooming
These Worcester pet groomers will get them looking their best for sure:
All of the shampoos, conditioners, and other grooming products from Dog Dayz Grooming are locally made with high quality ingredients. At Furry Essentials Grooming Salon they will let the sociable dogs play together while they wait for their haircuts and the less social dogs will have a separate area to relax and wait in.
Plenty of other places we have mentioned in this post also have grooming spas like Gibson’s Natural Pet, Fuzzy Pants Pet Stop, Waggerz’ Lounge, Woof Pet Resort, and Community Animal Inn & Spa.
We don’t know of any dog, cat, or pet cafes in Worcester at the moment. If you happen to please tell us in the comments at the end of the post so we can add that info, thanks.
