Grand Opening of Canine Social Club
Includes Fundraiser for Tulsa SPCA
TULSA, Okla. – Jan. 9, 2014 – It’s the most barked about event of the year – on Jan. 11, the Zoom Room® will celebrate the social aspect of dog ownership throughout Tulsa with the grand opening of its newest dog training center. Zoom Room Tulsa, a sporty indoor canine gym that offers agility training, innovative group classes and an unparalleled selection of treats, toys, and pup supplies, is opening at 4329 S. Peoria Avenue on Saturday. The new facility, which can be found across from the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market, is not only the first Zoom Room in Tulsa but the first in Oklahoma, and it’s owned by Tulsa native and longtime resident Joey Gursky.
Tulsa dogs – and their owners – will enjoy a full day of engaging activities, as a special adoption event will be held on Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., in addition to the grand opening celebration from 4-6 p.m. The Tulsa SPCA will be on-site with its mobile adoption center truck, and the Mobile Veterinary Hospital of Tulsa will be conducting free exams and nail clippings while also offering discounted vaccinations and micro chipping for all dogs. All advance reservations to the grand opening celebration will result in a $10 donation from Zoom Room Tulsa to the Tulsa SPCA.
Guests will be treated to $5 agility training classes all day, and the celebration from 4-6 p.m. will be catered by Biga Italian Restaurant. The party will also have a free caricature artist, dog tricks contest with prizes, raffle and Doggie Disco™.
“Tulsa is the perfect city for the Zoom Room,” said Gursky. “People here love to be active and they love their dogs; they love to be active with their dogs. As well, being able to help the Tulsa SPCA through the grand opening event adds a level of joy and fulfillment for me personally and for the animal-loving community we want to embrace.”
The Tulsa SPCA was founded in 1913 with a mission to prevent cruelty and promote a quality of life for domestic animals in the greater Tulsa area through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, education, advocacy and community service. It was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1949 and is governed by a volunteer board of directors. Since its founding, it has been an independent organization supported exclusively by private donations.
At the Zoom Room, owners can take their dogs through everything from agility, obedience and therapy dog training, to puppy preschool, scent work, tricks, Pup-lates®, urban herding, and shy dog training for rescue dogs – giving not only the dog a workout but the owners as well. In addition to group and private classes, the Zoom Room serves as a dedicated event center for dog birthday parties, meet-up groups and charitable fundraisers. Tulsa dog owners will also enjoy the carefully-curated selection of solution-oriented pet retail products, including training gear, all-natural treats, eco-friendly toys and puzzles, and hand-crafted leather leashes.
The original Zoom Room opened in Culver City, Calif. in 2007 and was founded by Los Angeles dog training expert Jaime Van Wye. As a sporty, eco-friendly and fresh approach to dog training, the Zoom Room is the fastest-growing pet franchise in the U.S. and a thriving leader in the $60 billion pet industry.
Zoom Room Tulsa will be open M-F from 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information about the grand opening of Zoom Room Tulsa and to make a reservation, visit www.zoomroom.me/tulsago or call 918-641-4340.
