Lucky and Lady is moving forward with plans to open its flagship in Madison Yards.
The pet boarding startup will occupy the third largest commercial space in the Publix and AMC-anchored development, at 975 Memorial Drive SE #810, according to a press release Wednesday.
Lucky and Lady is set to open in late summer 2019 offering pet boarding, daycare, grooming, and self-service pet wash.
“Four years of research and consultation with an array of architectural and mechanical engineers, environmental experts and clinical specialists in animal behavior have guided every aspect of the 6,000 square foot, all-indoor, climate-controlled pet care facility,” according to the release.
“From enhanced air purification systems that remove containments and pheromones from other animals to equipment and suites engineered specifically for pets, every possible pet trigger has been considered; triggers that calm and relax pets and those that excite or scare them.”
“We know what stresses animals and we’re determined to eliminate those stressors,” Ryan Deal, principal founder of Lucky and Lady, said in the release.
“Our multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art facility is truly all about pets and their enrichment, and yet is designed with all the conveniences pet parents want. It’s a win no matter how many feet we walk on.”
Lucky and Lady will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year.
The company will join only three percent of 125,000 pet facilities operating in the U.S. using technology to provide a “modern, safe and interactive pet care experience,” according to statistics provided by the International Boarding and Pet Services Association.
Live video feeds will connect pet parents with their pets in “Enhanced Day Care.”
There will even be text message updates with current photographs of pets and a pet valet service at pick-up and drop-off.
“It’s great that our valet service makes life easier for our pet parents, but we do it because it’s simply better for pets,” Deal said.
“If we can remove all of the stress pets experience while in transition, then we need to do it. Everything we’re doing is for pets.”
Invest Atlanta provided Lucky and Lady with financing to create jobs and contribute to the city’s economy.
The loan amount was not disclosed.
