Whatever the issue that your pet may face, we have expert advise in pet nutrition to help find the product that is best suited to meet its needs. We know our products very well and are qualified to recommend the ones your pet needs.
Emphasis on ingredients, not brands
We do not pick the products we carry based on the popularity of the brand but rather on the ingredients they use. A large percentage of the brands we carry are Canadian made, which offers a great degree of confidence given the Canadian standards of the pet food industry. We do not sell any edible products that are made in China or other countries that cannot certify the quality of the ingredients used in the making of the food products.
Our mission is, and has always been to promote high quality natural products for pets in Quebec. We hope that every pet owner has the opportunity to feed their animals with products using natural ingredients that are beneficial to their health and wellbeing. This is why we sell products in line with those sold in the 200 other Global Pet Food stores in Canada.
We are also very involved with helping animals in need with our different activities. We offer a space for local rescue organizations to hold adoption clinics and help with significant financial contributions from our fund-raising campaigns. We understand and support the tremendous effort that these rescue groups put forward to make the public aware of the need to fight cruelty and neglect towards animals.

Our stores involved in rescue
Adopting a pet is an important decision that must be carefully made. Many people under-estimate the responsibilities involved in owning a pet. For many reasons, such as health or re-location, pets are often abandoned in rescue centers. These organizations often need to nurse back to health or at the least care for these pets until they find an adequate home for them. We commend their efforts and do everything we can to give them the support they so desperately need through our funding campaigns and every other effort put forward by our franchisees.
We hold many fund-raising campaigns in our stores, but non like the results from our annual ‘ Show Us Your Heart’ campaign that has managed to raise over 1.5 million dollars in the country over the past 15 years of its existence. Every store picks the rescue organization that it feels needs the most financial help and remits all funds collected during the campaign to it along with the portion that each store owner has also contributed. These efforts along with the adoption days that we host is our way of supporting and saluting the efforts these organizations put forth on a daily basis.
The sale of animals is strictly forbidden in our stores. We do not encourage any industry that treats animals the way we have all been witness to. Every one of our stores can help you and guide you towards a local rescue organization or a serious and responsible breeder in your efforts to find the pet that will surely change your life. Consult our staff prior to deciding on where to buy your future pet…. we may have advice that will help you in your choice.

What our clients say about us
” My dog Lester had kidney issues a few years ago. After consulting with my vet, I was told that the salt level in the food I was buying from the grocery store was too high. I then realized that many foods sold are not necessarily good for the pet’s health. Now, I only buy my dog food at Pitou Minou & Compagnons, who were able to recommend a food much better suited for my dog’s condition. I trust the recommendations of the staff at my local Pitou Minou & Compagnons since they have proven that they are qualified in pet nutrition and have made a world of difference for my Lester. ”Nathalie, Montreal.
” My cat Leo had hairball issues and would vomit on a regular basis. His overall health and energy level was disappointing at best. I visited my local Pitou Minou & Compagnons store where I was informed that hairballs can accumulate in the stomach and possibly even cause a blockage. That is why Leo had so much hair in the vomit. The staff at the store suggested I buy special treats and hairball paste to avoid any accumulation of hair in the digestive track. Not only does Leo love his treats but rarely vomits now. ”Marie, Quebec.
” My dog is a glutton and eats much too quickly. At Pitou Minou & Compagnons, they recommended a few options to slow down the eating process in order to help him digest more easily and more efficiently. Now Whiskey eats more slowly and feels better after. ”Richard, Gatineau.
