Is your pet still wearing white this long after Labor Day? You owe it to your family friend, and your standing in the neighborhood, to get out and update your pet’s wardrobe. A number of local specialty stores await your visit, all within easy reach in Orange County. Here’s a sampling of the best.

Pet Stop Warehouse
27690 Santa Margarita Parkway, Suite D
Mission Viejo, CA 92691
(949) 305-0532
www.petstopwarehouse.com

The name says it all. This is your one-stop shop for every pet need, including attire. The best of all worlds, Pet Stop is a warehouse carrying countless products of your favorite brands. Pet Stop is also a privately owned business where you will receive excellent customer service. Find everything you need to outfit your furry family friend. Pick out a Thundershirt for the whole gang and grab a locally crafted leash. Then shop around for a new toy, a favorite pet food or a new treat. Nothing goes better with a new kitty sweater than a dish of gourmet caviar. Pet Stop has both, and much, much more.

Pet Supply
21425 Brookhurst St.
Huntington Beach, CA 92646
(714) 962-8800
www.petsupplyoc.com

Pet Supply has everything you can imagine for every animal you own, under one roof, well, several roofs. Pet Supply is locally owned but has six convenient Orange County locations. Your dog needs more than food. Your cats need more than litter. Your parakeet deserves better than that plastic dish of water it keeps knocking over. Find food and get litter, but don’t forget to stock up on fine, fashionable, functional attire and accessories.

Prehistoric Pets
18822 Brookhurst St.
Fountain Valley, CA 92708
(714) 964-3525
www.prehistoricpets.com

While your dogs, cats, guinea pigs and other fur-bearing pets weather the winter like cozy chinchillas, your boas, frogs and tortoises are turning into invertebrate popsicles. In the season of sub-70s temperatures, Prehistoric Pets has not forgotten your scaly little friends. Let your dogs have their daybeds and come get your hot rocks, heat lamps and hanging branches for the reptiles in your life. Be warned, this is more of a pet store than supply store. You may come in for gravel, but you’re likely to leave with a gecko or two.

Muttropolis
865 Newport Center Drive
Newport Beach, CA 92660
(949) 717-6888
www.muttropolis.com

Does your dog freeze in the winter while those lazy cats rest warmly and comfortably on your bed, couch and clothes drier? Muttropolis has the solution for your neglected mongrel. Outfit your dog with a fancy, comfy collar and harness and get ‘em a new toy. Then redeem yourself for years of inattention with an entirely new element-resistant wardrobe. With sweaters, t-shirts, dresses, jackets, hats and even a printed doggy hoodie, even the most apathetic cat will take notice when you come home with doggy jumpsuit pajamas. Muttropolis also carries a fine line of feline restraints.

Collar & Leash Pet Shop
9772 Chapman Ave.
Garden Grove, CA 92841
(714) 530-4490
www.collarandleash.info

As it’s pointless to put perfume on a pig, there’s little sense in dressing up your own un-groomed pet. Collar & Leash sells collars and leashes, of course, but is also a full-service grooming salon. Clean up your cats and canines, then shop around for some fine winter wear. Represent your favorite sports team and, yes, be that person by decking out your furry fans in C & L’s full line of pet sports wear.
