Dogs are Something Special! Lets keep them safe!
Something Special Pet Supplies (and Sit. Stay safe!) was created in 2015 by Sharon Conger (human), Dave (also human), Ajax and Capri (retired racing greyhounds) and Sweetie Pie (a sugar cookie wrapped in a cat suit). Sharon served on the board of directors with Blue Ridge Greyhound Adoption for 3 years where she organized many local monthly meet and greet events, served as an adoption mentor, reviewed adoption applications, wrote blog articles and did the bookkeeping.
She then held a board seat with Scooby North America for 2 years, again doing bookkeeping, reviewing adoption applications, managing the website and social media and even volunteered one week at the parent shelter in Medina Del Campo, Spain. We continue to volunteer and occasionally foster dogs with both BRGA and Scooby and wholeheartedly endorse pet rescue and adoption. We are located in lovely northern Virginia.
Sharon and Dave are both lifelong animal lovers and want to help promote the best care for them. We believe animals are family members in every sense, beloved and cherished. Our Ajax went to the Rainbow Bridge in 2016, taking a large chunk our our hearts with him. In 2017, we adopted Loki, a stunning black retired racer who keeps us laughing. Our Beloved Capri is 14 years old, becoming frail but very much still Sharon's baby girl.
Our mission is to sell only high quality safety products for dogs. In 2018 we are slowly rebranding our shop from Something Special Pet Supplies to Sit. Stay safe! The new name and (soon to come) logo more accurately depicts our vision and purpose.
