Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.
After decades spent loving their own dogs, Kelly Santarelli and her husband Pat began Lucky Bones Dog Day Care to nurture others’ pets as if they were their own. Separate playrooms host large and small dogs, ensuring great danes won’t be bullied by howling beagles. When pups tire of splashing in the pool and scampering down slides, a quiet rest area lets them prop their weary paws on beds and blankets. Dogs can take vacations of their own with Lucky Bones' overnight boarding service, which includes access to all daycare amenities.
Pooches and felines of all sizes and pelt types receive intensive pampering during Shear Pawfection's premium cat or dog grooming. Using the immersive HydroSurge system, the professional staff wrestles out fur grime with an oxygen-infusing spray, leaving skins smoother and sheens sheenier. Beast beauticians lather the puppy- or kitty-covering with all-natural shampoos before combing and cutting the coat to the owner’s preference, revealing a treasure trove of lost kibbles and car keys. Clippers tame unruly nails, and a thorough ear washing prevents the growth of infection-causing bacteria and helps pets hearken to their squeaky-clean conditions.
Pet Nation Lodge helps furry friends trade the rush of daily life for the leisure of luxury lodges, chef-selected meals, and social play areas. Following a two-hour consultation for every new client, rambunctious hounds climb and slide on an indoor faux-grass field, and felines use a separate, soundproof room to catch naps or test out impersonations of their owners. Overnight guests snuggle on raised beds and quilts as webcam surveillance oversees canine naps. After staffers burn doggie calories on five daily walks, chef selections refuel man's best friend with cuts of beef, chicken, liver, and salmon. Skilled groomers also free filthy hounds with a HydroSurge bath, dislodging dirt picked up on backyard romps and Forever stamps collected while chasing the mailman.
The groomers and veterinarians at PetCare Animal Hospital restore both the luster to fuzzy companions' coats and the vigor to their health. During the grooming expert sudsers primp pooches' pelts, removing dirt and oil from their skin while combing mats and tangles from their fur. After a mani-pedi, coat trim, ear cleaning, and tuxedo fitting, man's best friend is ready to be man's best man at man's wedding. To ensure pets' insides feel as good their outsides look, PetCare provides a plethora of veterinary services from simple consultations to advanced laboratory diagnostics. Preventative treatments such as vaccines keep parasitic freeloaders from hitching a ride on cats' cabooses and comprehensive dental care ensures cobras' fangs stay well-flossed.
