We are pleased to announce that clients are invited back into our building and you will be able to utilize our lobby when waiting for your pets.  We are limiting the number of clients in the lobby at one time, so if you need to wait for an extended period, we may ask you to wait in your vehicle. We will continue to offer curbside service for those that wish to use it.
