New Sewickley ‘Pet Resort’ Copes with Client Cancellations for Pet Kenneling, Day Care During Pandemic

NEW SEWICKLEY TOWNSHIP

Gretchen Fieser called a long-time client today to ask if she could allow Fieser to keep a deposit for a canceled reservation.

You can use it for up to a year for any of her services at Lucky Paws Pet Resort in New Sewickley Township, its kennels, daycare, dog park, pool and training, and the grooming services when they are allowed again, she said. If it’s at all possible, it would be greatly appreciated, she added. The woman agreed.

Fieser said the business, though open and considered a life-sustaining service, is being hit hard. Her “pet hotel” had been sold out for Easter, and so far half of the reservations have been canceled.

Other regular travelers who would drop off their pets to her care are also canceling. She’s had to lay off some employees.

“But we are luckier than some businesses,” she said. “We’re very grateful to the long-time clients that are still supporting us.”
