That is so cool! Their review page has a picture of our storefront when we were closed, but come by and check us out during store hours. We promise you’ll have fun looking at all of the products that we carry!

We also wanted to note that we carry a lot of Canadian brand pet foods, a good selection of treats, and that like most of the other pet stores listed, we offer professional grooming too!

Anniversary Re-cap

Our One-Year Anniversary was so fun!

Thanks everyone for coming to check out our events and sale, enjoying cheese and crackers and cupcakes (no really, thank you! because otherwise I know what my week of next meals would be..) and showing your support to us.

Summer Music in the Garden

We just read this in the Toronto Life, and wanted to remind you about the free event!

The Toronto Music Garden kicks off its 10th season with Shauna and Friends, a showcase for cellist Shauna Rolston and a group of her upper-year students from the U of T music faculty. The program opens with Calling From Different Directions, a work written last year for the Music Garden by First Nations composer Barbara Croall, who performs here on cedar flute and traditional drum, alongside Anita McAlister on trumpet and conch shell.
