|November 15, 2019 – Petacular on 57 York Street in downtown |
London, you’ll find two furry and friendly rabbits named
Harrison and Penny, who are Petacular’s mascots. You’ll also
find a store full of all-natural pet supplies and grooming services.
Owner Ted Ellwood, also President and CEO of Peloton Minerals
Corporation on Wellington Street in London, opened the York
Street store along with his wife in 2005.
“My wife was a dog agility trainer and nutritionist who was very passionate about animals,” says Ted, “The store is her legacy and is run by our wonderful manager, Danielle.”
Ted, who is a London local and who lives downtown felt London needed a downtown pet store that sold all-natural products and
that acted as a hub for pet-needs in the downtown core, “My wife and I had to drive outside of the downtown to get anything
pet-related and we felt that pet owners in the downtown needed access to all-natural products.”
Whether you’re looking for something for your cat, rabbit, bird,
fish or any small animal, Petacular carries lots of Canadian-based and unique supplies. The store even gets some products from
“We want you to have an experience when you come into
Petacular—say hi to Harrison and Penny—and really feel that it is a family-oriented environment,” says manager Danielle Adam.
Recently, Harrison and Penny were featured in ‘Bunnyzine,’ a
monthly, digital and popular bunny magazine, for their tricks,
and Instagram account.
Petacular also offers one-on-one grooming services, which allows for dogs that may be frightened or elderly to not feel the pressure of being around other animals at the same time.
“The groomers are very experienced and our services range from bathings to full grooms, nails ears or teeth,” says Ted, “Groomings can also be arranged seven days per week.” Nails are also only
$6.00 on Sundays from 12 noon to 5pm!
From September 30th-October 4th, be sure to check out
Harrison’s Birthday Party event at the store. Petacular raised over $700 last year for a rabbit charity!
Additionally, Ted plans to have an ‘End of Construction
Celebration Sale’ around November. If you would like to be
