Since 1965

Our History

Gardel Pet Shop began as a partnership between Adele and Garry Bruce who established their shop after moving to Owen Sound in 1965.

When it first opened on 2nd Avenue East, they combined their names and “Gardel” was born. Our business quickly grew in size and selection, until we needed to move to our larger Sunset Strip location to better serve our customers and their pets.

Today, Gardel is still a family business; with Garry and Adele’s son, Walter, taking ownership with his wife Krista in 1998. We continue to specialize in unique pets and pet care products; providing a wide variety of the very best food and supplies, as well as pet boarding. Whether you’re looking to adopt a pet, build a beautiful aquarium, or learn how to care for any furry, scaly or feathered friend, Gardel Pet Shop has you covered.
