)-- Chews A Puppy
is a specialty pet retailer located on West Colonial Drive in Ocoee that specializes in dog related merchandise including food, toys, and of course all things “chew” related. The retail location also offers a variety of puppies looking for good homes and on any given day, the puppy playrooms are filled with happy customers playing with puppies in their search for a new best friend to take home. While this retailer certainly has a strong following of happy customers, Chews A Puppy also quietly and without much fanfare offers a community outreach program that includes support for local youth programs, vaccination clinics, and support for local police K-9 units. The program is a very important component to the company’s vision and is always evolving and growing. So it came as a complete surprise when the company was approached to be honored with an award.
At their first annual awards and recognition reception, the City of Ocoee sent a special invitation to the event to Chews A Puppy. The specialty pet retailer was to be a recipient of a very special recognition award. At the reception, the Ocoee police department presented Chews A Puppy staff members with an honored “certificate of appreciation” for their “outstanding contribution” to the city of Ocoee and the Ocoee Police K-9 Unit. The company was given the award for their “valued partnership and continued support.”
Chews A Puppy issued the following statement regarding receiving the award;
“Chews A Puppy is happy to be part of the City of Ocoee. We were thrilled to be invited to the event and truly honored to receive such a special recognition award by the City of Ocoee and the dedicated officers that work hard every day to keep us safe. Police dogs like Nitro and Reno represent their breeds as excellent representatives of purpose bred working dogs. Extensively trained for police departments and paired with K-9 unit officers for the specialized work needed to perform their jobs to protect the city of Ocoee and its citizens. We are thankful to our happy customers who give us the opportunity to support the hard work of the Ocoee Police Department as well as Officer Schilling and his partner Nitro, and Officer Edwards along with his partner Reno, through our community outreach programs. We truly appreciate their service.”
