When Ken and Jan Grosskopf opened their family business in Green Bay, they had a dream. It was to build a business based on a philosophy of creating a positive boarding experience for their client’s pets. With a lot of heart, soul, and work, they realized that dream and more. Ken and Jan acquired Golrusk Pet Care on Memorial Day in 1975 and soon built a state-of-the-art boarding facility and pet care center on the east side of Green Bay. But that wasn’t the end of their fantastic journey. In the years to follow, they would add a dog obedience training program and facility, doggy fun camp and dog day care program, and the innovative fencing dealership called Invisible Fence® Brand Pet Containment. The expansion of the Invisible Fence® Brand business and a growing need in Green Bay for quality pet grooming necessitated the opening of the west side Golrusk Pet Care Center on Babcock Ave in 2001. During this time their family was growing up too. Like every family business the children were involved, helping, playing, and caring for the pets. This gave true meaning to the business tag line, “Pets are Family”. For nearly 45 years the Grosskopf Family and Golrusk Pet Care Center have been an industry leader in pet care for the Green Bay area. The dreams of the next generation began in 2012 when Ken and Jan’s daughter Tera and her family took over the Golrusk Pet Care Center family business.
What Golrusk Pet Care Center Customers Are Saying
We love all of our happy customers from areas around Green Bay, Bellevue, Allouez, Ashwaubenon, Howard, DePere, and more.
Had to board our rescue dog because I needed surgery. Not knowing if she would behave in a kennel was a fear for sure. The staff was great in making sure all the dogs were safe and could play nicely together. They made great decisions for her when I was not available. Great people, great care for my pet
Really nice staff. Felt like my dog was well cared for while on vacation.
We boarded our labs (Grue & Grenda) while we were out of town. The pups don’t like car rides, so we wanted to see if they’d have a better time at Golrusk. They had a blast!
They were so excited to go that they didn’t even wait to hear us say goodbye as they darted through the door. When we picked them up, they were happy as clams! They were fresh and clean from their baths.
Meow meow meow wow!!?
