Access pet health and wellness for all your special animals at the Chicago Petco Pet Care Center. Get assistance finding the right treats and food courtesy of Pet Care Center Associates at our Chicago pet stores. Petco has high-quality solutions for your pets to live their best lives.

Our Chicago pet store will help you find a new friend—either by offering information on in-store and local adoption opportunities or showing you our small animals or fish that you can provide with a home. Of course, you will also require bedding, crates, food bowls and toys on hand when you and your new friend return home.

Onsite pet grooming in Chicago with help from our certified groomers will keep your cat or dog looking amazing. Taking care of your pet is easy with some support from your neighborhood Petco Pet Care Center.

Dog obedience classes not only help your dog listen better, they are also a good way to bond with your pet. Puppy training classes in Chicago are available at this location. You can also decide to enroll in one of our online dog training classes to learn how to help your pup promote good habits without leaving your home. Find appropriate dog training for your dog, no matter how old they are.

Petco Pet Care Center Associates understand how passionate you are about your pets' health and wellbeing and are ready to help you find the proper care and solutions for them. You can help protect your pet from illness with an immunization at our Chicago dog vaccine clinic, and once they are recovered you won't have to worry about your dog running around with other canine friends.

Days spent at Park No. 551 with your pet and friends are always a great time. Of course, you'll need to take some toys and a lead. At Petco you can shop with your pet to see what they like best before you buy, making it easier to select interactive, appropriate toys that can keep your pet entertained for hours.

If your friends are of the scaled variety, Petco has supplies for you, too. From bird cages to terrariums and aquariums, your pet will have a safe and secure habitat to call home. Whether you're looking for fish flakes, bird food, live crickets, mealworms, red wigglers or something else, we have the food your pet craves.

Getting the food, care and supplies your pet needs from your Chicago pet shop is easier than ever. You can come inside and browse, opt for Curbside Pickup or schedule a delivery. Our buy online, pickup in-store option further simplifies shopping for your pet—do the browsing and paying from home and just stop by the store to retrieve your items when you're in the neighborhood.

Since 1965, Petco has been your go-to place to help keep pets healthy and happy. Let us be your health and wellness partners for the pets that are so important to you.

All Petco stores are cleaned and sanitized daily as part of our normal business operations. In light of COVID-19, we're increasing the frequency and extent of those cleanings and taking proactive steps to ensure all Petco locations (including stores and our distribution and support centers) have ample hygiene and sanitation supplies available.

Out of an abundance of caution, we’re making disposable gloves and masks available to all Petco partners, and requiring that all partners wear masks while working in our stores. Additionally, we have installed plexiglass barriers in Petco stores located in areas that are highly impacted by COVID-19, and are in the process of making this safety feature available in stores nationwide.

Each Petco store has several hand sanitizer dispenser stations in place at varying locations throughout the store, and we've instructed our store teams to ensure hand sanitizer is also available at all checkout locations, grooming salons and other high traffic areas of the store.

Using in-store signage, we're encouraging customers to help us keep our communities safe by maintaining at least six feet of distance from others, limiting the number of people per shopping trips when possible, and other recommended precautions.
