Wolfgang’s Pet Stop is a family-owned, neighborhood business serving the dog and cat community. Over the last 10 years we have grown a strong and loyal following of clients and pets that we care for and love very much. With the best groom team and pet staff in St. Louis, our pet care professionals use their knowledge, experience and compassion to make our company stand out from the crowd!
In short, despite our strengths, we’ve endured great losses and taken on more debt than we can manage. As we concluded 2014, we faced two choices: declare bankruptcy and close our doors forever or find another way! With a great team and wonderful client-base, we felt sure there must be another way!
The company’s founder enlisted the support and guidance of the Small Business Administration through their Emerging Leaders Program and gained a wealth of strategic analysis and insight from the instructors, counselors and experts from the program. Now armed with a strategic growth plan, the company needs only to manage and consolidate its debts with reasonable terms. Unfortunately the very banks that were bailed out when this debt-cycle began, were and remain unwilling to refinance for a small struggling company. So we are reaching out to our friends, family, clients and community to ask for help.
We’ve made terrific strides and sales are back to pre-recession levels (and beyond)! But the debt-monkey remains on our back and the bottom line is that without help, we will be forced to close our doors.
Please consider helping us get back on our feet so we can continue to do what we do best... take care of pets and their people!
