Mission Statement

Bow Wow Meow Boutique’s mission is to provide the beloved pets of the South Indianapolis community and their owners with top notch, quality products that are strictly made in the USA; good for them and good for the environment as well!  Additionally, our patrons will find a relaxed, easy to use self-grooming location with a holistic line of soaps, conditioners and other products to keep their pet in top condition.  Educational assistance will be readily available for those in need too.  We will strive to bring the community what they ask for by providing additional services as we grow, such as full service bathing, grooming, training classes, day care, and more.

About the Owner

Gretchen Ricketts

Gretchen Ricketts

The concept and drive behind this unique business is a long-standing passion and vision of Gretchen’s that has evolved over 40 years as an animal lover having personally experienced poor-quality product purchases for her own pets.

As a Licensed Veterinary Technician during the 1990’s, Gretchen witnessed far too many pets that were accidentally harmed by the products their well-meaning owners provided for them.

Combine this with a desire to help curtail the waste and pollution that is destroying our world, and knowing what pet-parents expect for exceptional service in the local area, and you can easily see how Bow Wow Meow Boutique was born. Gretchen is also a proud US Air Force Veteran and offers all Veterans a 20% discount every day.
