Mt. Greenwood Pride 2019

When it comes to family, the more the merrier, and a longtime business in Mt. Greenwood is a perfect example of that.

Posh Pet Day Spa–Grooming/Doggie Day Care welcomed the newest member of its family—Anatasia—in January and since then, the family-owned-and-operated business is truly more and merrier.

With the new arrival at Posh Pet, the owners—Missy (Anastasia’s mom), Sam, Lindsey and Lynn—will likely agree that the only thing more loveable than a puppy is a baby.

Posh Pet opened in a small storefront near 111th Street and Kedzie Avenue in 2005. The owners their venture would take hard work and dedication, but they never imagined the scope of what they would achieve.

In just fours years, Posh Pet expanded twice in order to serve all its clients, and in 2009 it moved to its current location at 3514 W. 111th St., providing three times more space and more comfort and convenience for pet owners and their four-legged friends.

Over the years, the firm’s growth has been outstanding, and Posh Pet has built a long list of satisfied clients who continue to trust the staff to take care of their furry friends.

Posh Pet Day Spa–Grooming/Doggie Day Care provides a wide array of services that keep pets happy and healthy.

Posh Pet offers complete professional grooming services for all breeds of dogs, and it has served thousands of local families.

The Doggie Day Care is a godsend for pet owners with busy work or social schedules. Instead of leaving their dog home alone all day, registered clients can bring in their pet for grooming and hours of fun with other dogs.

Grooming is available by appointment Tuesday through Saturday, with late hours available on Thursday.

Posh Pet is also involved in the community and supports worthwhile organizations such as the Mt. Greenwood Chamber of Commerce.

It also supports American Greyhound, Inc., which is dedicated to finding homes for retired racing greyhounds, as well as other sight hounds in need. Its volunteers welcome greyhounds when they have nowhere else to turn, provide the necessary veterinary care, teach them what it means to live in a home, and then find them good forever homes where they are able to live out their lives as wonderful pets.

Lynn has been a dedicated supporter of the group for many years.

Lynn urges local residents to support those efforts and discover the gentle nature of greyhounds. For information, visit the website at americangreyhound.org.
