Why Homes Alive Pets?

This isn’t your average pet store. You’ll feel it when you walk through our door.

It’s more than beautifully-designed locations and friendly staff it’s a belief in a higher standard for pet care. Our stores are community hubs somewhere to come and share an experience with your pet.

Homes Alive is a family business pass down from generation to generation. But we’re far from traditional. We create a welcoming, interactive and uncommonly organized environment to learn more about your furry companions and build a stronger, healthier bond with them.

You’ll notice a refreshing shopping experience at Homes Alive because we take a brand-agnostic, knowledge-over-upselling approach.

Rather than pushing a certain product or feeling pressured to meet sales quotas, our team’s attention is solely focused on getting to know you and your pet and empowering you to make confident decisions.

Pet ownership throws enough curveballs. You can feel at peace browsing our immaculate aisles because your favourite products are always stocked and easy to find.

Our customers leave happier and better equipped to care for their pets. And we’re proud of that.
