Boutique Gifts

Shop with Purpose

Located in the Mountain Island Lake area, Pet Pause combines specialty retail, a bakery with freshly-made, healthy treats, and a spa. Our boutique offers pet toys, preferred naturally healthy food lines, and unique items for dog lovers and feline friends.

Shop for gift items you won’t find just anywhere. Bedazzle your pet (or yourself) in sterling silver jewelry. Or find the perfect signature collar. Everything in our boutique has been hand selected. And not just for your pet, but items, like trendy t-shirts, that make a statement that’s both fashionable and fun.

"You'll find lots of unique items that aren't at the bigger mainstream pet stores. Pet Pause has a great selection and the staff is very helpful."


We have something for everyone.

Pet Toys

They squeak, they stretch, they entertain – both the pet and parent – for months.

Unique Gifts

Bedazzle yourself or your pet. Or make a statement in a hoodie or Tee.


You can feel good shopping.

Through our partnership with GreaterGood®, proceeds from many of our retail items help us to donate millions of bowls of pet food to less fortunate, but caring pet loving families and Veterans.

We also partner with nearby county shelters such as Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Care and Control (CMACC) and Gaston County Animal Control. Through our continued volunteerism and your purchases, we can do even more to get harder to adopt animals into loving homes. That’s a mission that gives pause to paws. And an important part of our Pet Pause Promise.
