By hosting adoption events, educational seminars, and even cocktail happy hours, P&P works hard to create a sense of community. In tandem, many of the rehabbed warehouses, bank buildings and new developments cater to potential homeowners with pet-friendly perks like stylized dog parks, and relaxed HOA rules. Not to mention P&P’s selection of colorful handmade toys, premium dog beds, architectural cat trees, and an unprecedented selection of organic foods remains unmatched. Yet, the history and urban ebb and flow that draws people to Downtown L.A. in general these days are the same things Zakrajsek had her eye on in 2007.
