Thanks to a $100,000 economic development grant from the Finance Fund, Medina Creative Housing (MCH) announced today the opening of its new doggy spa and daycare facility.
The new 3,000 sq. ft. Medina Creative Pet Play facility will employ 12 MCH residents with disabilities and offer a doggy daycare, spa, and pet photography studio.
“The doggy day care is an exciting social enterprise that provides employment opportunities traditionally closed to people with disabilities,” said Finance Fund CEO James R. Klein. ”It’s the area’s first pet care services facility and could potentially generate revenue to enhance MCH services to special needs clients.”
MCH provides housing, skill training, and employment opportunities for students and adults with disabilities in Medina County, Ohio so that they can live independently and earn income.
There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house beginning at noon today, where all “pets and their people” are invited to tour the pet palace.
