Across the U.S. and Canada, Dogtopia daycares and pet parents have stepped up to support our essential workers and medical professionals during the coronavirus pandemic. As businesses closed and shelter at home orders went into effect, we were honored to have some of our markets’ governments recognize doggie daycare as an essential service to help support pups and their pet parents.
But our daycares, along with their employees and pet parents, are taking their support a step further, providing discounted daycare to pet parents who are essential workers, sewing masks for local veterinarians, and selling treats to raise money for the Dogtopia Foundation’s Give Where You Live Fund. They’re showing their communities how Dogtopia enables dogs to positively change our world. We are so proud of our Dogtopia family!
Take a look at what’s happening in our local markets and make a difference on this Giving Tuesday Now with the Dogtopia Foundation’s Give Where You Live Fund:
