US$6,805.00raised of $15,000.00 goal goal
After just a year in our new location, the landlord opted to not renew our lease and has given us until April 15th to be fully moved out. While we have some big feelings about the news, we are putting our energy into finding a new home for our business so we can continue providing exceptional training and daycare services. This is where you, and our wonderful community comes in.
We need to find a new long term home to continue our daycare and training programs, one that will allow us to continue offering the individualized quality care, training, and education for and about the dogs in our community. Our short timeline makes this a particularly challenging prospect, especially given our specific needs for location & amenities, and very tight budget.
The funds raised will help us cover move-in costs as well as moving expenses and the re-permitting process. If we are not able to find a new location in time, funds will go to storage for our equipment, and supporting our small, dedicated team while adjusting services to keep our team employed, and our clients cared for.
We have been so fortunate to be part of an incredible community here in Bellingham, with a space not just for compassionate dog training and daycare, but to have the opportunity to open our doors to support and uplift other woman-owned businesses, and our queer, neurodivergent, and BIPOC neighbors as a whole.
We hope that with your help, we can move into a new space and continue to provide resources for our neighbors to build stronger, loving relationships with their dogs for years to come.

We are so close to being able to finally open, but still need a little help to get there! The move-in process has been delayed due to contractor schedules and permitting delays, and we just can't open a space with wires exposed and plumbing sticking out! Rest assured, we are. . . . .
