While rents have fallen during the pandemic, pet adoption has gone up by 20% according the MSPCA. Each week in Back Bay, I spot a puppy being walked and an owner doing their best to wrangle their new furry four-legged ball of energy. While entertaining for me, I know it can be a lot to handle.
For new pet owners who may be searching for where to go for Fido's grooming, care and toys, as well as pet-friendly apartments in Boston, here are a few suggestions.
