June Happenings: Summer's Here!

Ahhhh...June.  20 more days until it's officially summer!  We've got tons going on here at NoPo Paws to start this summer off right.

During the month of June, we, along with our neighbors at Overlook Corner, are having a School's Out for Summer Educator Special.  If you work in the education field, any position at any level, please stop by one of the participating businesses listed below to enjoy a 10% discount throughout the month of June.

NoPo Paws isn't stopping with an Educator Discount.  We know that teachers are one of many professions that our society depends upon.  To recognize the service of all who enable us to enjoy our lives, we have joined with Home for Heroes to expand our Educator discount to all military service members, veterans, health professionals, fire fighters and police officers.  If you are employed in one of these admirable professions, please stop on by any time during the month of June to enjoy your 10% discount - make sure to have proper identification on hand when you come in!

May marked our first full month in business and we are appreciative of all the Portlanders who have shown us their support.  We truly believe that being a successful business means being a partner to our community and we have an amazing community of folks to partner with.  We've loved meeting every single Overlook and Portland resident but most especially your dogs.  I smile when customers ask me if it's OK to bring their dogs into the shop - the answer?  OF COURSE!  The best part of my day is meeting your dogs and they are always welcome.  My goal has always been to make NoPo Paws an inviting space for dogs and their parents/owners.  And I am thankful every day for joining such a welcoming and inviting community.

Beyond meeting our neighbors and celebrating a successful first month, we've also been hard at work getting our website up and running.  The website will officially launch June 21st.  In addition to being a great information resource for those interested in who we are, what we believe in and what we carry, you'll be able to purchase directly from us on the web.  Best part?  We'll be offering in-store pickups of your order if you're short on time to browse our selection in person.

With the beginning of summer, we enter flea & tick season and NoPo Paws just got all-natural flea and tick remedies in stock.  We have shampoos & sprays to help keep those pests away!  From citronella to clove oil to peppermint & tree oil solutions, we've got the natural remedy that will work for you.  Don't forget to pick up a flea solution before hitting those outdoor spaces with your pooch.  

We also received our Orijen shipment this past month.  We carry their Adult, Puppy, Large Breed Puppy, Senior & 6 Fresh Fish formulas - we can also special order any of their other formulas or Acana.  Stop on by to check out our selection of these and other all-natural premium brands.

This summer is shaping up to be an exciting one for us here at NoPo Paws.  We will be at the Mississippi Street Fair on July 9th with our selection of eco-friendly and locally crafted dog products.  We're also a sponsor for the Overlook Street Fair on July 30th.   I am tickled that my neighborhood's street fair includes a doggie costume contest - how dog-friendly is that?

July also marks our addition of frozen raw foods & cat products.  Stay tuned for more details as we work on our plans to add these product lines in early July. 

Phew!  As with every summer, it seems to fill up before it even gets started.  We hope that your summer is filled with sunshine & fun and don't forget to stop by for your dog's summer supply needs.
