Rachel Mrozinski works for US Bank by day, but after-hours she is the face behind “Downtown Dogs.” In 2016, as a new dog owner and a new resident of Fargo, Mrozinski was inspired to start the Downtown Dogs club as a way to meet new people for herself and to meet new dogs for her furry companion. With the help of her lap Quincy, Mrozinski started Downtown Dogs to engage and make a difference in the community, not only by providing fun experiences and places to create friendships but also to be able to use these connections to fundraise for local shelters and groups to help dogs and cats in need.
“My favorite part is constantly meeting new people and instantly connecting with them over our love of dogs. I also love that it is a supportive and caring community of people,” said Mrozinski.
If you have an active dog, you know it’s never fun to go to an empty dog park. With Downtown Dogs’ weekly meet-ups, you are guaranteed to have a variety of playmates for your pooch to frolic with. All dogs big or small, old or young are welcome, and it creates the perfect opportunity to socialize your pup. Surrounded by fellow dog-lovers, it can be a great time to socialize yourself as well.
