Last week, 14th Street pet owners shed a collective tear when GreenPets and Dogs By Day closed their doors. On Friday, Adams Morgans pet owners rejoiced when the two businesses re-opened as Planet Pet, set just off the 18th Street strip.
The new space is bigger, better and closer to my house — all reasons worthy of celebration. The doggie daycare/boarding facility features indoor and outdoor sections with separate rooms for seniors and puppies. The retail area is about twice the size of the old GreenPets, and offers an expanded selection of toys, accessories and all-natural food and treats. There will also be an in-house holistic vet and a bereavement area for those who have recently lost a pet.
If you were affected by the move, Planet Pet is offering their daycare dogs free pick-up and drop-off services to and from your home throughout October. And in case you were wondering, yes, the resident black cats from GreenPets have come along to the new space.
Planet Pet is located at 1711 Florida Avenue NW.
