Metro Mutts announced today that for a third year in a row they have been nominated for two Washington City Paper Best of DC awards; Best Pet Shop and Best Dog Walker. Washington City Paper readers will have until 11:59 p.m. on February 27, 2014 to cast their votes.
Metro Mutts has been winning awards and special recognition since opening their first store at 508 H St NE in April, 2010. After just a few months in business they were honored with a Hilly Award for Retailer of the Year on Capitol Hill (2010). In 2012 Washington City Paper readers voted them Best Pet Shop in DC while Washington Post Express readers voted them Best Pet Store in DC. They have been in the winners circle every year since.
With the overwhelming success of their flagship store on the trendy H St corridor in NE DC, they opened a second store at 407 8th St, SE on Barracks Row near Eastern Market in October of 2012. Metro Mutts pet supply stores have become regular destinations for nearly 3,000 pet owners and their families throughout Washington DC--especially those living in and around the Capitol Hill neighborhood.
In addition to offering a great assortment of healthy, safe, fun and effective products for dogs and cats, Metro Mutts serves customers where they live around Capitol Hill, H St NE and NoMa with daytime and early evening dog walking as well as in-home pet-sitting services. The Pet Services Manager, Darnita Brown and Assistant Manager, Kelly Kundrat head up the professionally licensed and bonded pet services team at Metro Mutts.
Metro Mutts co-owners Lee and Kelly Hartshorn, and Anna Lappas-Collins were pleased to learn that they are once again in the running for both Best Pet Shop and Best Dog Walkers in Washington DC. “Our customers - and that includes a lot of four-leggeds - are pretty much like family,” says Lee Hartshorn. “They give us great feedback everyday,” says Lappas-Collins, “ We’ve become known for providing what dogs and cats want and what pet owners need.” “Receiving these award nominations from the people we serve every day means the world to us,” adds Kelly Hartshorn. “We’d vote them Best Customers Ever if we could!”
Votes can be cast for Metro Mutts for Best Pet Shop and Best Dog Walker through February 27, 2014. Voters will have access to a full slate of nominees in many fun and relevant categories when they visit the City Paper website.
