About Grateful Dogs Rescue
Founded in 1990, Grateful Dogs Rescue
is the oldest all-breed rescue group in San Francisco. For more than
two decades its mission has been to save the lives of dogs at San
Francisco Animal Care and Control that are not considered suitable for
adoption and are at risk of euthanasia through no fault of their own.
Rather than letting these dogs be euthanized, GDR saves as many of them as possible, provides the veterinary care they need, and places them with loving foster parents until their perfect forever homes are found.
About Pawtrero Bath House and Feed Co.
Pawtrero™ Hill BathHouse & Feed Co. Ltd. was founded by Shireen Nyden & Suzie Yannes, who met at the Potrero Rec. Center dog park in San Francisco in the summer of 2001. By January, they were commiserating over how muddy their dogs would get after one trip to the dog park and there was no convenient place to bathe them. The only alternative was to take their dirt ridden dogs home and dump them in the bath tub — we all know the outcome of this scenario: dirty tub... shake, shake, shake... wet and dirty house!
Shireen and Suzie were not only concerned about keeping their pets clean on the outside, they wanted to continue the clean cycle from the outside – in. Both of their dogs were having dietary issues, so they began extensive research on natural foods without chemicals or by-products. Once they discovered how bad the commercial foods were and how they were affecting their dogs, they decided their mission would be to share the information they had gathered with as many people they could find to listen.
Pawtrero™ Hill BathHouse & Feed Co. then opened in October of 2002 in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. The store has a down to earth old-fashioned feed store atmosphere. Their second store opened in June of 2005 in the South Beach neighborhood of San Francisco. The essence of this neighborhood was captured with a beachy, bright, open-air feeling. Both stores have dog bathing facilities and carry high quality food, treats, toys and gear for cats and dogs. www.pawtrero.com
About City Dogs / Bernie's Grooming
The staff of Bernie's Grooming has worked together since 1996 and that experience and knowledge are what set their grooming services apart. A kind and gentle approach helps every pet feel comfortable and enjoy the grooming session. Each pet is treated with loving tender care.
The prices at City Dogs / Bernie's Grooming are among the best in San Francisco. Pricing varies depending on the breed, grooming habits (temperament), condition of the coat and services rendered.
Bernie's first job (and the start of her love for animals) was at the age of nine when she took care of a neighbor's three beagles for two dollars a week. She has owned and operated a small San Francisco neighborhood pet supply and dog and cat grooming business since 1989. www.berniesgrooming.com
