Located on East Danforth, this pet hub is a cage-free daycare that comes with mid-day walks if booking for a full-day visit. They’re then treated to an “anxiety-free slumber”. Their “spaw” offers bathing and brushing, or a full groom. The store is also stocked up with Canadian-made food, treats, clothing, and toys.
