The Groove Hound Doggy Daycare COVID-19 Fundraiser

Hey Friends. 

Nicole here (Olive and Goose’s Mom). This is such a  weird and scary time we are all living through. First I’d like to say,  I am incredibly grateful for our first responders, nurses, doctors, all hospital staff, delivery drivers, grocery store staff, and people like Gert at The Groove Hound. While this pandemic has been affecting so many people, Gert’s concerns weren’t only about her bills or her dog expenses, she was also worried about our dogs. She cared about how they were getting daily exercise, if they were having positive social dog interactions and whether or not she’d get to see them again. Once the Groove Hound opened back up, she was thrilled to see everyone!! And while Gert will never admit this, she, like most people, is struggling. The time lost while she was closed along with the significant and understandable decrease in attendance has left her fearful about her ability to keep The Groove Hound open and running. My hope here is that we can rally together to help keep this small business open. Not only because she was the first doggy daycare to open in fishtown. Not just because she loves our dogs like they were her own. But because it’s small businesses like this that deserve a fighting chance to stay open during these fragile times. Go Fund Me will match up to $500 of what is donated! Please share this funds raiser!!!! Thank you all!!! Stay safe!! #SmallBusinessRelief
