I first conceived of opening a “green” pet store and grooming salon when I saw the growth of organic and natural products spill over into the pet industry.
We all try and make the best choices for ourselves and our families, and I try to make decisions based on my lifestyle to live more "green", healthy, conscious and compassionate. So it made sense to me that we should care for our pets in the same way that we look after ourselves.
At the same time, I was looking for a career change that combined my long time love of animals with her desire to make a difference in my community and the environment. Thus, Green Pawz was born.
Green Pawz is the logical solution for integrating my passion for healthy, happy pets with my goal for greener living.
Having been in the natural/organic products industry for 14 years and a pet owner even longer, my mission for Green Pawz is to be kind to our planet, people and pets. To bring our community together with like minded pet owners and offer excellent service, grooming, healthy food and treats. To support our local vendors as much as possible.
I recently expanded Green Pawz to include our brand new location, Groom in Inner Richmond.
Groom was a neighborhood grooming salon that had been in business for 27 years, recently under the ownership of Nona Bailey, and it is a huge honor and privilege to continue serving their clients and infusing my green values into their already talented groomers and excellent customer service.
