As a long-time Astoria resident, Tania and her French Bulldog, Oskar, are a common sight all around the Ditmars area.
After her last corporate employment of almost 14 years at one of New York City’s premier international banks, she left her VP-position to devote her time to the needs of the animal companions around her neighborhood. In the summer of 2007 Tania established Astoria’s first true pet boutique on 23rd Avenue, where pets rule and pet lovers meet to spoil their pets!
Tania is currently the proud mom of an adorable Frenchie as well as two very sweet rescue cats; a calico named Lexie, and Molly, a black cat, who was found in a dumpster in the Bronx. She works closely with local rescue organizations as well as with the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, where her adoption efforts have been supported by fellow pet lover and New York State Senator Michael Gianaris.
Tania is fully certified in Pet CPR by the American Red Cross, and she is an active supporter of the ASPCA, The Humane Society of the United States, and The Sato Project (The Dead Dog Beach PR Project). She supports local charities by making financial donations and donating non-perishable products. Occasionally, customers drop off gently used goods at The Jumping Bulldog that will then be passed on to those who are in need.
GoodSearch, an Internet search engine utilized by the Mayor’s Alliance, donates half its revenue, about a penny per search, to the charities its users designate. Money from Yahoo advertisers will go to the Alliance without us spending a dime. GoodSearch is The Jumping Bulldog’s search engine of choice.
