Welcome to Barklandia, Pet Care with a Purpose
The Pet Care industry is big, and it’s growing. So how does a new pet care business stand out in growing market? Ask Beaverton resident, and business owner, Rafael Montelongo. He will tell you there are three things that BARKLANDIA, Beaverton’s newest doggie daycare, grooming, and pet hotel does to stand out: Provide a quality service and be passionate about it; Earn the trust of clients by being consistent, reliable, and most importantly, learning from mistakes that are made, and finally, have a higher purpose or mission that guides your work.
Enter the slogan, “Pet Care with a Purpose”. For Montelongo, that manifests in a belief that personal and professional fulfillment can be found by giving back to others. For Barklandia, that means a portion of all daycare profits are shared with Wounded Warrior Project® and 4 Paws for Ability®. Both foundations are aimed at improving the quality of life of others…for WWP it’s about helping those who has been injured while serving in the military…for 4 Paws it about providing highly trained service dogs to enrich the lives of children living with medical conditions. Barklandia also offers a Pet Hotel discount to those on the front lines of service: First Responders, Active/Retired Military/Public Educators.
“Opening Barklandia was a way to pursue my lifelong dream of owning my own pet care business, and do so in a way that can make the world a better place for everyone.” Montelongo says.
