    Hi everyone,

    What should I say?

    Animals shop or Animal's shop?
    In a sentence like: I bought it from an animals shop (animal's shop).

    Well, unless the "animal" owned the shop then "animals shop" is correct grammatically though probably "animal shop" is what you are looking for. However, I don't think this is a very good sentence.

    "animal shop" is really meaningless by itself. Perhaps it could have some meaning in a certain context but certainly there could be a better description of this shop.

    Is it a shop where you purchase animals for pets? Then it would be a "pet shop".

    Tell us more about this shop.

    It's the shop from which I buy pets.
    "pet shop" I know that before but I don't know why it didn't come to my mind .

    Well, thank you so much.
