Wag on the Danforth

This family-run business on the Danforth has been a go-to source of pet knowledge for over a decade. They’re known for holding adopt-a-thons in partnership with Toronto Cat Rescue ever year, and their selection of all-natural (even grain-free) pet food is pretty impressive.

You’ll probably recognize this shop by the massive iguana that’s perched on its window. This Cabbagetown staple carries everything from holistic pet foods and aquatic plants to an array of tropical fish, amphibians, and birds.

Also not far from Trinity Bellwoods is this shop that offers discounts when you buy eco-friendly products like biodegradable poop bags, cat litter, organic cat grass, and more. Their food brands run the gamut from Healthy Paws to PureVita.


Dogfather & Co

Grooming is the forte of this brand with stores by Rosedale Station and Yorkville. As its locations suggest, your pooch should expect nothing but the most upscale treatment. Luxe orthopedic beds and adorable onesies will make you wish you were the one living in the dog house instead.

Jaunt over to this Roncy shop that’s been open since 1998 (revived after a tragic fire in 2012) or to the one in Mimico for all animal needs. Find accessories, toys, grooming tools, supplements, and holistic food for your domesticated friend, regardless if they bark or meow.

Small Wonders Pet Emporium

Small Wonders Pet Emporium

The best part about this Danforth pet store is definitely its pair of resident cats, Diego and Rupert, who are so beloved they have their own fan club. Aside from them, though, Small Wonders is a great place for advice and any other animal necessities.
