Appreciate Your Pet this August – Not that You Need a Reminder!
While we may love out pets year-round, August presents a slew of holidays where appreciation for your fur babies get posted all over social media – August 6 is International Cat Day, August 17th is International Black Cat Day and August 26th is National Dog Day.
Here at Hub, we see tons of well-loved dogs and cats move into our community, and we know their owners are always interested in the best ways to take care of them and to improve their lives. With our central location in Brooklyn, we’re just a short walk from a few big-box pet stores where you can find everything you need – but we’re also close to a few smaller shops, where you’ll feel the love and special attention you need when shopping for your beloved pet.
Here are some suggestions for some top-notch pet supply stores and groomers not too far from your apartment.
Rocco and Jezebel for Pets – Located just on the other side of Cadman Plaza Park, about a ten-minute ride on the 2/3 train, Rocco and Jezebel has been providing for the pets of Brooklyn Heights for years. A pet supply store carrying gourmet pet food brands, as well as supplies and toys, Rocco and Jezebel are best known for their grooming services. Whether you have a matted little Maltese who needs a trim, or a regal Persian cat looking for her summertime lion-cut, these groomers are experts in all forms of pet hair care. They also provide pet boarding services for when you’re out of town.
Park Slope Pet – Located a short ride on the R train down 4th Ave, Park Slope Pet is the most popular pet store in Brooklyn. A small pet store that carries all the same popular brands at the big stores, it also carries a ton of small business brands you may never heard of before – but that your pet will adore. Packed with every type of treat, ball, cat condo, scratcher and just about any other item you can imagine, Park Slope Pet is the go-to place for Brooklynite pet owners. Make sure to say hi to Princess for us, their resident on-site kitty.
