“Words can’t describe how thrilled we are to finally be opening our doors in O’Fallon,” said Putzler. “The greater St. Louis area is full of compassionate pet lovers who have been eagerly anticipating the forthcoming location for quite some time now, and I can’t wait to introduce this one-of-a-kind pet concept to families and furry friends around O’Fallon. Pups and cats nearby are definitely in for the ultimate pet shop experience at Wag N’ Wash, and I’m ecstatic that owners will soon have a one-stop destination for all things pampering, washing and grooming to enjoy with their companion pets.”
With a passion for the pet care industry and an adopted Saint Bernard mix of her own, Putzler saw a need in her local market for a different type of pet facility that offers multiple services, especially in a store as spacious as Wag N’ Wash. Putzler upholds a business mentality in her approach to ownership and is also excited to immerse herself into the community through various fundraisers and adoption events.
