Bow Wow Meow has new owner
By City Times staff
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Bow Wow Meow has a new owner to help pamper your pet, as Dawn Laugelli takes over proprietorship of the pet boutique.
Diana Buss, who had the business for over six years, put the business up for sale after learning her husband was being transferred in his job.
Laugelli, who was a background in finance and accounting, took over ownership on Sept. 1.
“I am originally from the Buffalo, NY, area and relocated to central Wisconsin in December 2013,” she said. “I fell in love with the area, and I’m excited to become a part of the Wisconsin Rapids business community.
“I love animals, especially my dogs, and I have always had the dream of owning a small pet boutique. When I found out that Bow Wow Meow was being sold, I jumped at the opportunity to fulfill my dream.”
Laugelli said that she has plans to expand the selection of cat products, including toys and treats, but does not have plans to make any other major adjustments.
“Diana Buss, the previous owner, built the foundation to an amazing business with a great reputation,” she said. “I do not intend to make any major changes – the bulk bakery, decorated treats, and core product offerings will remain the same.”
Bow Wow Meow is located at 221 Lincoln Street in Wisconsin Rapids.
