Back in July, St. Louis was hit by once-in-a-century flooding. Thanks to the quick thinking of our team, no doggies were hurt. The same cannot be said for our Hanley location.

Dogs need plenty of room for sniffing, prancing and playing to their heart’s content. It’s all part of our cage-free ideology.
