Our Newest Foster Dog…. TRIXIE!

For nearly as many years as we’ve been in business, we’ve provided boarding services to an organization called Teacher’s Pet. Teacher’s Pet is, IMHO, a revolutionary organization! They pair dogs from local shelters with at-risk youth in dog training programs that benefit both the dogs and the kids! During their time together, a transformation takes place in both the dog and the student. The training the dogs receive gives them the experience of positive experiences with humans, and basic manners, thereby making them more adoptable! The kids that do the training develop positive emotional bonds with the dogs. They learn empathy, responsibility, and patience.

In the last year, Teacher’s Pet has taken on a couple new projects.

Teacher’s Pet has begun working with Covenant House and Detroit Animal Care & Control, to provide residents of Covenant House with on-the job training and enrichment at the DACC shelter. Teacher’s Pet oversees their work and pays their wages. These youth are directly responsible for many of the tasks that go into the care of the animals and facility. They are learning skills that make them employable in the future, and providing essential services for the dogs at the shelter. Underlying these tasks, a transformation takes place in the human and animal participants, as they create meaningful relationships with the teachers, the dogs, and one another.

This April, Teacher’s Pet is throwing a Gala Fundraiser to raise funds for the Covenant House Program. Club Pet & Club Pet Too are among of the proud sponsors of this event. Check out the below link if you’re interested in donating, volunteering, attending, or sponsoring this event!

Welcome To Hollywoof!

Recently, the organization has taken on rescue, pulling dogs who are being overlooked at larger shelters and providing them foster care and the hope for quicker adoption. Club Pet and Club Pet Too have agreed to house dogs in their rescue and promote their adoption. We have housed seven of their foster dogs to date and look forward to taking on more. This our latest foster at Club Pet Too, Trixie! She’s petite, loving, great with dogs, and a real cutie!

Meet Trixie!
