Around Alhambra
Newspaper Article, Spring of 2007:


Trendy pet boutique and Grooming Spa fills a niche in Alhambra for a growing designer dog apparel industry.

As owner of Happy Paws Boutique and Grooming, Zulema Tovar tells it, she has always had her dreams set on starting up her own business, it was just a matter of finding out exactly what. Tovar says she decided to stick to what she loves, and she loves dogs. She states she began her research on a trend that seems to be booming in the pet industry, Designer Pet Clothes. After three months of research and two months in the making, the pet boutique and grooming spa now sparkles on the corner of Atlantic and Main right next to The Community Development Commission Housing Authority (formerly Edwards Theater).

Wedged between Atlantic and Garfield Avenues, Happy Paws Boutique and grooming instantly captures the attention of pedestrians and commuters alike. Tovar states that her goal is to provide indulgent pet owners with unique and quality dog apparel and luxury accessories at reasonable prices. Tovar explains that she came across the former video rental location by chance after an outing at the movies. “The place was in shambles but it had great potential,” she says. Now, it is beautifully colored in two tones of yellow and green and a hardwood floor that gives way to rows of toys, beds, and designer clothing. The plan declares Tovar, “is to create attractive window displays which will be changed frequently to keep customers interested in visiting the store and feel comfortable when they drop off their four- legged babies for a day of beauty at the spa.”

Happy Paws key drive is grooming. Services run the gamut from cucumber and melon facials that massage animals into a state of relaxation to pet-icures that get paws into tiptop shape. Wash and cuts start at $25 depending on size of pet. Tovar, who has been a nine-year resident of Alhambra, says she is a proud parent of two four-legged fur babies (Boo and Phoebe) whom she credits as the source of her inspiration. “I love the owner’s response after I have given their pet a complete makeover. I feel very proud of my work as pets leave my spa clean and looking gorgeous. It is the most joyous and rewarding feeling,” reflects Tovar.
