This year we have all dipped into our own personal reservoirs seeking moments of gratitude. As a small business, we have struggled with the restrictions that have arrived in waves of change this past year.
One of the reasons that we are still in business is because of our clients. The surprising ways that so many of you have helped us has completely floored us.
We want to take a few moments, if you will indulge us, by saying thanks for the numerous ways you have supported our local, small business:
We have many clients who have continued services this year even though they don't need us.
We have some vacation clients who have started booking Mon-Fri dog walks just to help us out.
We had a client who was having us come for walks, but didn't need us; so he decided to pay for his walker to go walk shelter dogs instead.
Several folks continue to have us come walk their dogs, even though they're home.
Some clients purchased gift certificates to use later, to help us during the first few months.
Several clients are high risk and continue to have us come while they're home, but we do contactless pickup. (The doggies are waiting for us in the backyard).
Some of our 2x per week clients have booked us for 5x per week.
We understand that everyone has different circumstances. For those of you who have made such generous contributions to keep your pet care staff from All Breed Care employed, thank you! Each and every day, we know that without you we wouldn't still be here. So, this Thanksgiving we offer our deepest gratitude. Folks like you, who have offered so much support, are literally the reason we are still in business.
