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.
Great place, but they're very busy so make sure to schedule at least a day in advance
Such nice people!

We're signed up to start doggie school, I hope they're ready for us.
We first reached out to Golrusk when my wife and I had opposing schedules that would've resulted in our pup being kenneled for hours every day, and even though the schedules have evened out, we still take her there periodically for grooming and play time with other dogs. The staff is always so nice and clearly takes great care of all the pets. They make everything easy and our dog is always excited to pull in the parking lot. It's a much better alternative to her being home alone and we'll be customers for a long time.
Puppers loves it here, after a day here he good for about two days of sleep. Drop your dog off and look forward to getting some work done! The pictures they post at the end of the day are also priceless.
