Natural Pawz - Vintage Park officially opened their doors on May 1, with a steady flow of two and four-legged customers stopping in to discover the benefits of what an all-natural diet can provide for their pet. “We are very excited to become a part of the Vintage Park community,” said Biff Picone, co-owner of Natural Pawz. “We look forward to getting to know area residents and are thrilled to provide healthy and affordable pet food options to our new neighbors.”
Natural Pawz is an avid supporter of animal welfare and non-profit organizations. Each location works closely with groups in their respective communities to host events and generate awareness of animal-related charities. Continuing in this tradition, Natural Pawz is using the grand opening of the new location to help the animals from Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue and Gleannloch Farm’s Pet Committee by collecting donations to help each organization continue assisting animals in need, while also highlighting the amazing animals available for adoption through the groups. “We are dedicated to helping animals in need throughout the city,” said Nadine Joli-Coeur, co-owner of Natural Pawz. “Houston-area animal groups are inundated with animals needing good homes and often struggle to raise necessary funds to provide for these animals. We hope to raise money for these groups while also introducing some of the great adoptable animals looking for a forever home.”
Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue is a nonprofit rescue organization specializing in the rescue of Cocker Spaniels. They are not a shelter and their rescue process involves finding loving foster homes for all the dogs in their program until their forever home can be found. The group is in constant need of volunteers, foster homes and funding. In addition, they have two special funds set up to help special needs cockers, the Hunter Fund sets aside money to help eliminate and solve behavioral problems and the Peanut Fund is used to treat shelter dogs who may come down with upper respiratory infections, distemper and/or parvo after being brought into the program.
Gleannloch Farms Pet Committee is the ultimate resource for animal-loving residents living within the popular Northwest Houston community. The committee runs and operates the Gleannloch Farms Bark Park, assists residents with pet-related services, promotes responsible pet ownership and, often times provides foster services to animals in need. Volunteers from Gleannloch Farms Pet Committee will be selling PAWfectly decorated dog-themed cupcakes to raise funds to further enhance their services to the community, as well as bringing animals available for adoption through their foster program.
