Dog lovers and those hoping to adopt their own furry friend will be in for a treat in Greater Manchester soon as a unique dog café is set to open.
The Mirror reports that an exciting business will be opening in Greater Manchester soon – and it’s wonderful news for anyone who loves dogs.
A huge dog café, called Alfie’s Island Café, is set to launch on a 22- acre site in Timperley, and will welcome both dog owners and those who just really want to be around pooches.
Customers will be able to hang out with the cute pups and order food from an American-influenced menu, reports Manchester Evening News.
The unique community hub will have space for up to 120 covers, an outside dining area and a private room as well as it’s very own indoor dog beach.
But that’s not even the best part, those looking to adopt their own furry friend will be also able to do so there.
Tony and Tania Golden, the owners of the business, are currently working with the Starlight Barking Trust to bring stray dogs over from Greece – where there are very few charities and facilities to care for and re-home dogs.
The couple, originally from the USA, will then help these adorable creatures find their own forever homes – just as they did for their own dog.
Their golden retriever Alfie, after whom the café is named, was rescued from Greece.
At the café, dogs that are up for adoption will be easy to spot as they’ll wear little bandanas as they walk around.
Anyone interested in adopting will be able to spend time playing with the dogs in a dedicated meet and greet area.
If all that weren’t enough, the business will also be offering dog care services, with overnight, cage-free stays for dogs.
They want to ensure that the place is as stress-free for dogs as possible.
Speaking about it, Tony said: “The dogs get a chance to play outside if they want to, they can play together and sleep together.
“We do really look at things from a scientific side – it’s not just about making a play area that looks pretty.
“A lot of dogs will freak out in a kind of warehouse setting, it can mess with their personality. They’re so much happier here.
