Petropolis announces second location in St. Charles and new push towards enrichment

ST. LOUIS, MO – January 20, 2020 – Every year, American pet owners spend over $70 billion on their pets’ care. To meet the growing demand and higher standards set by pet owners, Petropolis is opening their second location and first empowered pet care facility in St. Charles later this spring.

The new Petropolis, located in the former Vatterott College building at 3550 W. Clay Street, will offer all the company’s core services – boarding, doggy daycare, training, and grooming – in a new state-of-the-art facility designed to put pets’ needs first. This new location will spearhead the company’s push towards enriching pets and educating the community.

Indoors, Petropolis St. Charles will feature large dog boarding rooms for a low-stress boarding environment and a grooming salon with individual, private stations to reduce anxiety during the grooming process. Their cat boarding space, set to be the St. Louis Area’s largest, will be entirely separate from the dog boarding area, creating a more relaxing environment for their feline clients.

Along with the 32,000 square foot building, Petropolis St. Charles will also boast over 33,000 square feet of outdoor play yards complete with tunnels, hills, and water features. The new play yards were inspired by the success of Canine Cove, the Chesterfield location’s dogs-only water park.

Petropolis will be sharing part of the space with The Academy of Pet Careers, which offers education for prospective dog trainers, groomers, and vet assistants. They will share a large event arena, which they plan to use for programs aimed at educating the public about proper pet care and enrichment.

With this new facility, Petropolis hopes to inspire pet parents to live more empowered lives with their pets. To learn more about Petropolis’s mission and services, visit their website at or call (636)537-2322.
