Play Dog Play business needs your help!

Calling all clients past and present!

“Play dog Play” where dogs come to stay and play could use a leg up during these unprecedented times to keep its' doggy doors open.  Like many small businesses, it has been hit hard by the pandemic.  It is currently running on a skeleton crew and doing all it can to maintain daily operations, but needs support from the community to keep its' remarkable services going.  That is why a small group of loyal and loving friends, clients and employees, decided to start a campaign to offer one of our favorite Petaluma businesses, a helping hand.  

This 17-year treasured institution in Petaluma was started by owners, Molly & John, to provide a fun, safe, and unique experience for pups to play while their parents are away.  From the start, it’s been a hands on business for them and remains that to this day.

Molly, true to form, is dedicated to easing the burden of clients who are in need in the midst of this pandemic, including nurses, doctors, emergency personnel, & first responders who are working long hours and have pets at home.  Days ago, a client went into labor after business hours and Molly & John jumped into action and brought the clients dog to their home for safe keeping while the family gave birth! 

There are endless stories of goodwill:  from the senior citizens who were called at the onset of the virus and offered pick-up/ drop-off service for their dogs  while keeping themselves home and safe, to the countless stories of people not charged after Molly got wind that they lost a job or were going through personal hardship.  There have been a staggering amount of clients in cancer treatments who needed a rest break during their chemo treatments, and could rest knowing their dogs were getting all they needed spending a day at Play Dog Play.  There have even been clients who have passed away, and again, Molly & John stepped in to shelter and care for their dog or dogs while working to find them new loving homes.

The acts of kindness and generosity by them have no limit.  So, if you can and whatever you can, please consider contributing to keep this incredible small business in action.  Anything will be greatly appreciated.
