No need to pack all of your pet accessories when coming to the beach either. Bow Wow Meow offers crate rentals of all sizes and a one-stop shop for food and treats, eco-friendly toys, and pet bedding. A new outdoor pool for dogs that pops up with a flick of the wrist has been a customer favorite during the summer months. Also made in the shop are the original “Beach Dog Biscuits”. These customer favorites are one-of-a-kind homemade dog biscuits made with organic flour, eggs, peanut butter, banana, local honey, and recycled spent barley from Idyll Hounds Brewing Co. in Santa Rosa Beach. The wholesome, organic dog biscuits are made

The locally-run business provides a wide selection of healthy and organic food, treats, and unique pet gear for both dogs and cats. There are also two private self- washing rooms and a dog bakery inside the shop, located near Eastern Lake on Highway 30-A. “We live in a wonderful, tight-knit and caring community where we all look out for each other, including our pets, guests and their pets as well,” says owner William Overton. “It’s a treat for us to meet so many wonderful people from different places and get to know their furry friends at the same time.” With a friendly and knowledgeable staff, the team at Bow Wow Meow can make suggestions and recommen- dations based on your particular pet’s needs and all you need to live a happy, healthy life with your pet. “We appreciate our customers trust and support of our small business here on 30-A,” adds Overton. Originally from Memphis and then residents of CO for 15 years, Overton and his family have been life-long visitors to the area prior to moving to 30-A full time in

February 2020. The family includes their Australian Shepherd, Blue and English Bulldog puppy, Petunia, who’s living the beach life quite stylishly as you can witness through her Instagram page, @petunia_of30a.

There is a professional two- speed cool air dryer, towels, aprons, and grooming brushes to use, as well as 16 different shampoo and conditioners, ear and eye wipes, and freshening sprays to finish the bathing experience. “We have customers who drive from Panama City to use our washing rooms and tubs,” says Overton. “We’ve covered all the details and you get to leave the mess with us.” As a vital member of the local business community, Bow Wow Meow also supports the work and mission of Alaqua Animal Refuge, the premier no-kill refuge providing protection, shelter, and care to animals in need. Alaqua provides a full-service animal adoption center for the area and advocates for animal welfare through educational outreach and community programs.
