Woof Gang Bakery, a leader in the pet products and services industry, has opened its first Jacksonville location. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Jacksonville will welcome people and their pets for a grand opening event on April 11, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Harbor Village Shopping Center in the heart of Jacksonville.

Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Jacksonville is a locally-owned business, offering full service grooming and a wide selection of pet foods and supplies. The store is located at 13475 Atlantic Blvd, Suite 9, Jacksonville, Florida 32225. The phone number is 904-619-8086.

Area resident Jody Berk is the franchise owner of Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Jacksonville. He is dedicated to the local community and to providing outstanding service and quality products for customers and their four-legged friends.

As a retired psychologist, Jody knows the benefits of pet ownership. His life-long love of pets has contributed greatly to his own quality of life and opening a Woof Gang Bakery is the fulfillment of a dream to help other pet owners. Plus, the company’s mission to support pet adoption and rescue mirrors Berks’ own philosophy.

“As the owner of a seven-year-old rescued pit bull mix named Daisy, I know the important role that pet rescue can have in both the life of the animal and the owner,” said Jody. “I am passionate about being involved in the local pet community and supporting animal rescue organizations. We look forward to offering an enjoyable experience for people and their pets, and providing options for healthy nutrition and lifestyle.”

To kick-off Jody’s commitment to support the well-being of Jacksonville’s four-legged friends and the local community, the Jacksonville Humane Society will participate in the grand opening event with many adorable and adoptable dogs and cats.

Plus, the first 20 customers at the store on April 11, will receive free dogs treats for a year.

Also at the grand opening event will be fresh, free samples of signature Woof Gang Bakery treats, a variety of free product samples and festivities for both people and pets.

A remarkably high demand exists for the pet products and services offered by Woof Gang Bakery.

According to the American Pet Products Association, approximately 82 million homes in the U.S. own a pet. Americans will spend more than $58 billion this year on pet supplies and care.
