After establishing a Green Team, they achieved certification within six months. To support Santa Monica’s Climate Action & Adaptation Plan, they opted in for the Clean Power Alliance’s (CPA) 100% Green Power tier and performed a comprehensive water and energy efficiency retrofit. In addition, Paws & Effect signed up for Edison’s online tools to track water and energy usage in order to respond as soon as sudden rises occur.
To provide cutting edge service, Paws & Effect offers custom hairstyling, appointment booking online, curbside valet and text reminders. They work closely with local partners to support to animal related causes. Paws & Effect was voted a 2019 finalist in the Most Loved Pet Business category for the Buy Local Santa Monica campaign.
