Grooming Not Essential

While we remain open throughout this pandemic as Pet food and Supplies retailer are essential services, sadly pet grooming services are not considered essential.

However if your pet is in distress, you can get grooming done but only for medical and not esthetic reasons at a Veterinary Clinic.

This means that effective immediately our grooming services are suspended until further notice in order for us to avoid any potential fines by the Province.

Please stay safe, stay home except for absolute essentials like walking your dog, and please keep your physical distancing.

We wish you all well during this very difficult time but as Gloria Gaynor sang, I Will Survive, we will survive. βœŒπŸΌπŸ’š

Pet Stores are Essential and staying open

In Ontario pet food and supplies store will remain open during the State of Emergency. We are operating with some minor reduced hours.

Grooming services are still available by appointment only on Mondays and Saturdays as usual. And on these 2 days, we will stay open until 730p or sooner when the last appointment is completed.

Tuesday to Fridays the hours will be 11am to 5pm. Sundays hours are noon to 6pm.

You can call and pay by phone so we can have your essentials ready for pick up.

When inside the store, please stay 6 feet away from me when making your purchases. I have a barrier to help with physical distancing. And for now we are accepting only debit and credit. I will take cash if you don’t have a card to pay with.

Please stay safe. Stay home but if you must step out please stay physically 6 feet apart from other people. Thank you very much.

Physical barrier for physical distancing

Covid-19 Store Update.

For now we remain open. However this situation may change and I’m monitoring public health advice closely.

I want to reassure you that the safety of our customers is paramount. As such I want to let you know that I have taken measures to keep the store safe while we remain open amids this pandemic. Sanitizing supplies are stocked up and a routine store cleaning will be done throughout opening hours.

Be safe and please practice social distancing as much as you can.

Your understanding and patience is much appreciated.

Why Vegan?

As an independent Pet Supplies retailer, I want to provide the best quality options available in the market for our customers.

This includes food options as well as high quality options in accessories, supplements and apparel. As such, we carry non-leathers or leather alternatives, sustainable products, cruelty free shampoos, all natural and plant based supplements, biodegradable poop bags, and so on.

Your pets and their health and happiness are some of the most important things to us, so we will always show you what the best options are available to you when you shop here.

Finally, we make vegan options available here because Bark & Meow Pet Supplies is vegan owned and naturally we know these options are necessary in a world that’s slowly and surely going vegan.

The future is now at the Bark & Meow Pet Supplies .

Facelift for 2020

After a year and a half, Bark & Meow Pet Supplies finally overhauled the website to include a blog, and this is it. Our very first.

My name is Charles and I became the new owner and took over the store back in June of 2018. Having always been employed and never in retail made the transition to being a pet store business owner a bit of a challenge and a financial risk. But as 2020 is about to start, I feel like I’ve been very lucky as the store is doing quite well.

This website facelift including this blog helps you to get to know us better, and is just a part of our growing success to improve the quality of services we can provide to help make your experience here that much more satisfying.

You will find out about the awesome products we sell, the events we will be involved in, the communities we support and your opportunities to participate. We will share our stories, customer reviews of products and services, advice for our furry friends, and anything that may be of interest to you.

I hope you will return to our blog and become a fan and an important part of our online community.
