Tampa is one of the top dog-friendly destinations in the country. Midtown Tampa, billed as a city within a city, is a perfect place for dog-owners. The neighborhood is highly walkable, with an interconnected system of boutique shops, local and national restaurants, a green space featuring public art, and tons of wonderful shaded patios. Royal Pets arrival in the neighborhood is a no brainer.
“Our commitment is to always provide the best care and advice to our pet parents, so their pets live healthy and happy lives. At Royal Pets every pet is a part of our family and always treated like royalty,” said Denise Wolin, CEO & President. “We have everything under one roof for your pet, from our state-of-the-art Veterinary Hospitals, 5-star Pet Hotel, Salon & Spa and of course our Market with our knowledgeable pet experts to help with all of your pets’ needs.” Wolin is an industry veteran who oversaw nearly 1,200 stores as vice president of PetSmart before founding her first Royal Pets right here in the Tampa Bay Area.
