In the 1990's in St-Jean, the Barré family, motivated by their passion for animals, decided to create a store that offered both a professional pet shop and a complete line of food and accessories.

Following their success, four other stores soon opened in Chambly, Ste-Julie, St-Bruno and St-Luc. Over the years, the stores were sold to independent owners who kept the Tropicazoo spirit alive.

In 2003, the Marc-Aurèle family acquired the stores and gave a new lease on life to the company, which now has 7 stores on the South Shore of Montreal.


Always listening to its customers, Tropicazoo is expanding its service offering to include:

  • Online store with free delivery
  • Experienced groomers
  • Pet sitting for dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents
  • Loyalty program with bonus tickets
  • Interesting promotions and discounts


The training of our staff in nutrition and animal welfare, as well as the transmission of information from our various suppliers and collaborators, allow our teams to offer you sound advice.

Tropicazoo now has more than 35 consultants in stores who all have pets tattooed on their hearts!
