The Animal Store has served Chicago-area pet lovers since 1992. Unlike many big-box stores, we’re a pet store that actually has pets.
Cute, cuddly, shiny, scaly, even squawky – we’ve got ‘em all.
We are fully licensed to carry domestic and exotic animals, with permits and random inspections from:
- United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
- Illinois from the Department of Agriculture
- Illinois Department of Natural Resources
We love our animals, and are committed to their ethical care and treatment. Our staff is trained to keep them clean and healthy, and we’re annually inspected by a veterinarian.
Pets are hand fed and socialized so they’ll become beloved members of your family.
The Animal Store carries everything you need to keep your pet happy and healthy. We’ve got treats, toys, habitats, supplies, and equipment — all competitively priced.
Great pets — huge selection of exotic animals
Great location — just east of I-94, just north of Chicago
