Ed. Note: Metro Mutts closed their Barracks Row location back in April ’16. Around that time we also spoke about fears that Metro Mutts on H Street could be in trouble when Petco arrives.

Thanks to a reader for passing on from Metro Mutts:

“With a mixture of sadness, appreciation, and excitement for the future of Metro Mutts…

We are writing to let you know that Metro Mutts will be closing the retail store on H St on May 14, 2017, and putting 100% of our energy into Metro Mutts Pet Services – dog walking and cat sitting.

We have been through a lot in these 7 years. We have seen many of our customers arrive in the neighborhood and seen just as many move away. We have said goodbye to many fur babies in the neighborhood as they pass over the rainbow bridge, including our own store beauties and dear friends Meeko and Jenny.

We also saw the ENTIRE construction of the Trolley line built along H ST NE. Boy, that was messy. We have seen many businesses come and some go. It sure has been a roller coaster ride and we want to thank each and every one of you for your patronage and support over the years. For without you, we couldn’t have made it this far!

Despite the great outpouring of support that so many of you have shown since we opened in 2010, and especially over the last year, increasingly steep retail competition along H St and a lease that is up for renewal this year finally led us to this decision.

While we will miss the store and the regular face to face contact we have enjoyed with so many of you over these last 7 years, we want to assure you that Metro Mutts Pet Services are here to stay! We love spending time with and caring for your mutts and meows when you can’t be there. Metro Mutts Pet Services will operate with no break in service. If you haven’t done so already, register your pet with Metro Mutts today!
