Bark Avenue Stay & Play, a pet day care and boarding business that has developed a loyal following at its Utica location, is expanding to a second location in Roseville, opening May 18.
A grand opening celebration is planned for May 17 at the new Bark Avenue at 15075 East 11 Mile Rd. Husband-and-wife owners Michael and Marnie Scroggs, animal lovers who opened the Utica store in 2013, have built a loyal clientele, and clients who live or work closer to Roseville or have friends or family in the area want their animals to stay at Bark Avenue.
“We are very excited that our second location will be closer to home for some of our current customers and we’ll also be able to reach new families as well,” says Marnie Scroggs. “It’s a great building that will be an easy stop for commuters on their way to or from work.”
The new Bark Avenue Play & Stay is 10,000 square feet of indoor space and 5,000 square feet of outdoor space. The building is located near I-696, I-94 and I-75. The Roseville location will offer services like boarding and bathing for dogs and cats and have extended play times during daycare.
