Just a few of the activities we’re planning for our new location are:

  • Woof Washes – Self serve dog wash with full amenities.
  • Dog Training Center – We will have a variety of set monthly training classes by local trainers.
  • Holistic Wellness Classes – Including pet massage, holistic veterinary services and wellness seminars
  • Woof Clinics – We are planning on building a section in the store for animal wellness practitioners to meet with clients and their companions. Services may include integrative veterinarians, chiropractors, homeopaths, acupuncturists, and others.
  • Adoption Events – Visits from local adoption groups including the Washington Animal Rescue League, Washington Humane Society, Great Pyrenees Rescue, Capital Cats, Pet Rescue Alliance and Greyhound Welfare.
  • Taking Action Days – We plan to host regular forums and to invite different groups and organizations to come to the store to highlight a specific social and environmental issue. These events will generally not be focused on companion animal issues. In the past we have had discussions on pesticide use, plastic bag referendums, local food economies, currency and clean water.
  • “Made In DC” Merchandise Section – We are planning a section of the store explicitly for local merchandise (mostly for humans). We are in discussion with SouperGirl and other local producers to be a pick-up shop for local goods.
  • Five-A-Day CSA Drop-Off – We will be a drop-off point for local produce created by local CSAs (Community Sustainable Agriculture), including fresh flowers.
