Woof Gang Bakery, a leader in specialty pet retail and grooming with more than 100 locations in 11 U.S. states, is opening the company’s first store in New York state with a grand opening event in Rye on May 19.

As part of the grand opening, three local pet rescue organizations will be on site with adoptable animals hoping to find their forever homes. Prospective pet parents are encouraged to stop by to meet the lovable dogs and cats from Wagging Tails Dog Rescue, Short Noses Only Rescue Team and Pet Rescue NY.
Local resident Debra Love is the franchise owner of Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Rye and says she is excited to provide area customers and their pets with healthy foods, quality products and professional pet grooming in a boutique setting. Love is committed to supporting and working closely with local rescues. She is an animal lover and her own family includes two English bulldogs and a box turtle.
“I aim to make all my customers and their pets feel welcome in the store and provide them with exceptional customer service and helpful information to find options that best suit their needs,” Love said. “The Rye community—both local neighbors and businesses—has already been so hospitable. I truly believe our healthy, natural approach to pet care is a perfect fit for this market.”
Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Rye is the company’s first location in the state of New York. It joins six stores in New Jersey—Ridgewood, Allendale, Westfield, Aberdeen, Bridgewater, Chester—as part of the company’s regional expansion into the northeastern United States.
