Why..."Because you LOVE them"?
Back in 1991 a single mom with two kids was let go from a downsizing Canadian retail giant, Eatons. She was looking at a mortgage payment, grocery bills, car payments, gas and all the other expenses that needed to be covered and had no clue how she was going to do it. A gut instinct inside her told her to follow her passion for dogs and she discovered a perfect way of doing that, she opened her own Pet Salon.
In the beginning she took over the only extra room in her little bungalow house, the play room and much to her children’s dismay 😉 the business took off. Her dedication to the safety, wellbeing and comfort of her clients’ pets when blended with her amazing skill really set her apart. This “playroom” business eventually led to the foundation and opening of the Just About Pets Wellness Center, which is how you know us now.
As one of the owners of the business and one of the “dismayed” children of this story I’ve always been around and been a part of this business. A little over a year ago I was attempting to sum up the core energy behind why we do our business and on my drive home one night it came to me; “Because you love them”.
Since that phrase hit me at the McCallum and Marshall road traffic light I’ve made it a vital part of our message to all our customers and many of you have asked why “Because you them”. Well, in the end I couldn’t come up with a simpler answer as to why we do what we do, stand for what we stand for and care the way we always have.
When someone asks us why we only carry certain brands of dog or cat food, the answer is “Because you love them.” When people ask why it takes over 3 hours of interviewing and 18 hours of training to work in our Doggy Daycare, “Because you love them”. When a customer wonders why our stylists are put through a rigorous evolution in our salon it’s simple “Because you love them”.
We have always put the needs of the pets in our care first and this motto “Because you love them” is the why behind it all. As a business, as a team and as a family Just About Pets Wellness Center stands up and speaks for the adorable, loyal and beloved dogs and cats that we all share our lives with and it’s because we love them that we are happy to do it, everyday.
Just About Pets Wellness Center is honored to be a part of your community and we are blessed that so many of you choose to trust us with your furry family members, although it just feels like such a natural relationship, because we know you love them too.
