A Guide to Pet Care in Fairfield County

pet care

Our pets are members of our family. They provide love, loyalty, and fun, and sometimes, they listen better than their human siblings. In return, we do everything possible to keep them happy and well. We’ve put together our third annual Guide to Pet Care in Fairfield County. Please support our sponsors!


Choice Pet’s story begins in 1979 when their first Choice Pet “Supply” opened in Norwalk, CT. The idea was simple: to offer the best products for the health and well-being of the pets we love so much! From the moment their doors opened, Choice Pet was the place for pet families to come, not only for food and supplies but for real guidance and information to enrich life with and for their pets! Choice Pet truly exists “for the love of pets!” They now have 19 neighborhood locations across Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey with carefully selected holistic, organic, raw, and natural foods, treats, chews, and an array of outstanding pet products that they feel are tops in their categories. And they continue to search the planet to find the newest, the best, and the most innovative merchandise!

Additionally, Pets a Go Go offers expert training, grooming, and so much more. Pets a Go Go’s Stamford location also has luxury suite options, separate from the facility’s main indoor and outdoor play areas to meet the needs of older pups who need more rest or dogs who can’t fulfill the neutering requirements for health or personal reasons. New doggie daycare clients must successfully pass a complimentary one-hour temperament test after providing medical documentation.
