ServePets, started by retired veterinarian Dr. Gabor Vajda one year ago at 2605 W. Northern Ave., is marking its first anniversary with a special deal for pet owners and their furry companions.

ServePets is a multi-service pet facility where pet owners can wash their dogs themselves, bring in their dogs and cats for professional grooming services, drop their dog off for a day of play at doggie day camp and participate in a variety of other classes, activities and programs. And during the month of September, customers can receive 10 percent off all services.

“We have lived up to the promise we made one year ago to be courteous and friendly to our customers, but especially to be kind, gentle and caring with the precious pets left in our care,” said Vajda.

The spacious, two-story facility “is a reflection of my lifelong love for pets and my desire to create a loving and caring environment for pet owners and their pet companions,” added Vajda.

ServePets also offers obedience training for the convenience of its customers. The resident professional obedience pet trainers are Christine Filler of “Obedient Buddies” and Barbara Nagy of “Patience Unlimited,” both of whom are well known and respected in the dog world and in the North Central community. Their aim is to build strong relationships between dogs and their owners and to strengthen the depths of the human animal bond with love.

In addition, Gynny Maese and Memo Cavazos, longtime dog handlers and instructors, offer confirmation and handling classes at ServePets. Visit their website at
