A one-stop shop for all a pet’s needs has opened on 30th Avenue.
NYC Pet Services, which offers pet day care and boarding, has recently moved to the second floor of 23-08 30th Ave, after operating for three years on 24th Ave.
Owners can drop off their dog for daycare where their pooch can be walked, play independently or socialize with other dogs in a large pen. Prices range from $25 to $30 per day, according to owner Samantha Aguilar.
However, Aguilar said the facility will also be offering an hourly service, for those dog owners who have to run errands and don’t want to leave their dog at home.
While the service is primarily for dogs, the new location has more space than her previous facility, allowing Aguilar to offer daycare for cats and other pets, such as birds.
Owners are also able to board their dog overnight, with prices ranging from $40 to $70.
Private rooms with a puppy bed and a small TV will soon be available to make dogs feel comfortable when they stay overnight. There is also the option for a dog to sleep in a communal room with other dogs.
The dogs are supervised when the stay overnight.
Aguilar said all of her previous clients have stayed with her despite the move, and many have already sent their dogs for day care at the new site.
NYC Pet Services is open from 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday, and from 10 am to 6 pm on weekends.
Aguliar shares the same floor with Mount Sinai Animal Clinic, a veterinarian hospital, whose owner has known Aguliar for years after the two worked together for a veterinarian.
Mount Sinai Animal Clinic had been operating on Ditmars Blvd, but the two decided to open at the same location to offer their clients all the essentials a dog owner needs in one location.
Aguilar said she requires all dogs to have their shots. Previously, she had to send owners to a different location to get them done; now they can go across the hall to the clinic.
“Our clients can get everything done under one roof and it is more convenient,” she said.
