adoption spotlight!

Over the years, Good Dog has shown its devotion for man’s best friend, from the photos of pups that line the walls of the three-story building, to the bar’s anniversary party dedicated to the cover girls and boys that fill those walls.

Now, owners Heather Gleason and Dave Garry, who recently adopted a puppy themselves (a black lab named Greta), are working to match more dogs with great families – and maybe even you! The idea was brought to them by a Good Dog employee by the name of Lisa Berkowitz who volunteers at STAR, a local animal rescue. A few weeks later, Good Dog’s Adoption Spotlight was formed and ready to find good dogs good homes.

With the help of Berkowitz and STAR (Street Tails Animal Rescue), they’ll help “find forever homes for the homeless and unwanted animals within the Philadelphia Area.” For more info on STAR, please click here: www.streettails.org

And now for our first Spotlight!
