The Twin Cities Pet Shop


Lyndale South Liquors

Owner Dan Campo’s Saint Bernard, Oakley (we believe his third store dog Saint Bernard), is allowed in the store despite not having a valid Minnesota ID. When he’s not helping customers choose a six-pack, find him in Campo’s motorcycle sidecar around town. Tangletown, Mpls., 612-827-5811,

Turbo Tim’s

Four kittens – Jose, Brandon, Stevie and Bruce – hang out at this Northeast auto shop. Want to make a good impression? Check out Turbo Tim’s website for bios and very important instructions on how to pet each cat. Northeast, Mpls., 612-208-8461

The Foundry Homeware

We’ve long adored The Foundry’s resident chocolate lab, Ruby, who lights up the shop (and her Instagram) by napping in cozy nooks and occasionally balancing household items on her head. Tangletown, Mpl., 612-333-8484

Urban tails

Choosing a new pet food or toy? Resident tabbies Betty and Veronica can help. After all, who else is going to give you an honest answer on what to buy? Lowry Hill, Mpls., 612-879-0709,

Copilot Dog Outfitters

Linden Hills dog gear store’s French bulldog, Audrey, serves as the model, mascot, and host. We have a feeling she gets paid well in treats and toys for her services. Linden Hills, Mpls., 612-353-4045,

Gardens of Mother Earth

After Mother Earth’s beloved Peaches “retired” from her store cat duties in the fall of 2021, the team introduced Simon and Eddie, kittens who are already used to climb on shelves, sit in pots, doze in boxes and warm the hearts of shoppers at the south Minneapolis location. Longfellow, Mpls., 612-724-2296,

wild rowdiness

Need a real animal solution? Visit Linden Hills Bookstore for the chance to cool off next to two cats, two chinchillas, a dove, a cockatiel, two rats and an aquarium of fish. A wild rumpus indeed! Linden Hills, Mpls., 612-920-5005,


The hottest influencers in town? Cole and Ella. Frankly, we let them choose all of our wardrobes. North Loop, Mpls., 612-746-5329,

Tonkadale Greenhouse

Shop Kitty Violet is the head plant inspector as she spends her days wandering the greenhouse. Minnetonka, 952-938-6480,
