Animal Attraction opened in 2006 after owner Judi saw the need for a diverse and well-stocked pet shop in Dunedin.  Our Crawford Street site is perfect for visitors as we inhabit a large, bright space in a popular part of Dunedin and can offer you parking.


Catering for almost every kind of pet, we love to help customers with their enquiries. 


Our shop is renowned for our “fluffy” puppies and many people buy their first dogs here.  All puppies and kittens are vet checked and vaccinated before we sell them and come with 6 weeks free medical insurance.


If birds are your passion, come and view our 9 metre by 5 metre display aviary that showcases a large collection of birds.  It’s an attraction all on its own!


On the back wall at the end of the store, fish tanks hold a vast selection of tropical and cold water fish along with a variety of water plants.  If you have been planning that project aquarium, here is the place to start.

Once inside the shop, go through the double doors and you will find a mind-boggling selection of foodstuffs for your cat or dog, with every diet catered for.  You will also find housing for all your pets from kennels to bird cages.


Judi loves animals and currently owns a wide variety of animals including Lottie, a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Elmo, a Sun Conure, and Digit, a Cockatoo.  All staff at Animal Attraction share her enthusiasm for animals and animal welfare, and individual staff specialize in different animals that they are happy to advise customers on.
