Pet Shop Story combines cuddly pets with management and breeding to deliver an enjoyable free to play mobile game. Ultimately you’ll get to run your own dream pet shop .


TeamLava have a long track record of developing Story themed games and Pet Shop Story is no exception to the level of quality they’ve created previously. Chances are you’ve played some of the other games that have let you take control of similar businesses.

In Pet Shop Story you’ll start with a fairly blank slate of pet shop store before filling it with appropriate pens to hold animals. These animals range from your simple cat and dogs to more rare breeds and other types of animals. Each comes with a level which alters the experience and income gained although will need more time to stock.

The majority of these funds are then reinvested in caring for your animals and expanding the store to stock a wider range of cute animals for purchase. Much of the games focus is actually on the breeding system of the game where players can breed their pet shop critters together to create cute families, eventually players also gain the ability to cross breed their animals to create fun combinations that can also be very financially rewarding.


You need not play Pet Shop Story in isolation either with the usual social feature offerings that allow you visit other players and provide them with gifts. This can be a great way to get hold of new ideas for your own store in particular.

Pet Shop Story leans heavily on its past game releases for game mechanics but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable, especially for those seeking the pet shop theme.
