The owners at Pooch N Paws, Starla and Bob Pellegrino, are committed to supporting and giving back to the communities in which they serve.
They specifically support the animal rescue community in a variety of ways. They believe that many who have adopted a rescue have similar love stories. Because of this Pooch N Paws has created a formalized adoption support program with several rescue groups including Angels Among Us and Country Livin, Rescue. This program provides special discounts and a welcome home gift for new rescue adoptions and their families through these organizations. Pooch N Paws mascot is a red balloon dog named Lucy after their own dog, which reminds everyone to “love a rescue.”
In 2015, Pooch N Paws donated in excess of $17,000 in cash sponsorships, silent auction baskets/items and dog/cat food to various charitable organizations including local pet rescues, schools, churches and a variety of other community causes at their Suwanee location in Suwanee Town Center Park next to City Hall.
With their new location now open in The Forum at Peachtree Corners (next door to Trader Joe’s), Pooch N Paws is excited to be part of this great community and discover more opportunities to give back and make a difference!
We rescued Lucy five years ago when she was just a puppy. She was from the Yorkie rescue group; she had been found as a puppy when she was only a couple of pounds. She’d been dumped in the Ocala forest, both eyes bloodshot, covered in fleas, dehydrated and near death.
Her foster mom in Florida nursed her back to health as we were going through the adoption process. Lucy is such a love bug and will sit on our lap for hours for just a belly rub, but her favorite thing is still to sit in our back yard and peer at all the birds and chase away the squirrels and chipmunks…the sweetest thing is that she still sleeps with one of the tiny tattered toys her foster mom sent with her which serves as a reminder for me, how she really rescued us!
