The mission of Downtown Dogs is to improve the quality of live of dogs, their people, and the community through care, education, and advocacy.
Values govern how we interact with our customers, employees, and dogs. We are proud to say we are a business that has values and even prouder of how they show up in everything we do.
Helping Less Fortunate Dogs
By doing something great for your dog, you are also helping many others! Downtown Dogs donates a portion of our revenue to helping less fortunate dogs. Downtown Dogs fosters over 100 homeless dogs per year. We also support dogs at Underdog Rescue, Pet Haven, and Home for Life Animal Sanctuary.
We are stewards not only of animals but the entire planet. Our “green” practices include:
- The rubber mats in the New York Room save your dogs' joints and save thousands of tires from landfills
- Our HVAC/Air filtration systems take about the same amount of electricity as a 100 watt light bulb.
- Our white roof reduces greenhouse emissions to the ozone layer and saves significant amounts of natural resources with its energy efficiency.
It doesn’t end there.
- On their own time our staff donates our left over food to Red Lake Rosie's
- Staff volunteer in the community with our Certified Therapy Dogs
- Community involvement in building dog parks, helping the neighborhood and volunteering on boards for the City of Minneapolis.
