I love seeing our dog transformed after a groom at Animates, Sylvia Park. The dog looks so smart, ready for the hot summer :)

Our dog looks so different now with the groom at Animates, Sylvia Park. Thanks so much for transforming our shaggy dog to a smart-looking dog :)

Thanks Animates Sylvia Park for grooming the dog. No more "shaggy dog" look! The chew will go down a treat! #plantae

I love coming to Animates at Sylvia Park to get my dog groomed here. Dappa Dogs does a good job of grooming my dog and I like to spend money at Animates to get a $10 voucher after a certain amount spent. While my dog gets groomed I can pop over to Sylvia Park Shopping Centre for some retail therapy!

I don't have any pets but a visit to animates cheers me up regularly!  The staff are so friendly and there are the most cutest critters around the place!  There are no puppies though, but its still a great place to visit and has all your pet needs in one place! 

I wish I could bring my two cats in the store to wander around with me - they'd be in heaven, there is just about everything you can imagine for a pet, not to mention great staff and great service too!

Have been there a few times, and they have been helpful for our pets needs. But also great with my kids too.

I work here! I really enjoy meeting new people and giving them the best advice I can. I promise, I'm not just some salesperson, I love animals and I strive to help!

Fun, Furry Critter Paradise I'm new to 'Animates' - but the new Sylvia Park branch is really nice, well laid out with very knowledgeable staff. PLENTY of variety on the shelves - although a new range of cat collars wouldn't go amiss.  Staff were happy to order things in that they didn't have however. Plenty of animals to see (including beautiful rabbits) and you're free to pet them at your will.  They also honor the Animates Loyalty Card - a bonus if you're a regular shopper like us.
