One Girl. One Mission. Happy Pets. SIT Social: A Dog Lounge’s
goal is to provide 5 star rated pet care by day and build community by hosting pet focused, innovative
events by night. We are fulfilling our mission statement by hiring and training pet care specialists who
mimic the service standards Victoria founded the company upon. We are creating community by
collaborating with other small, local business owners, and getting to know our neighbors. We look
forward to continuing this mission with all FLATS residents.
What services do you provide to the public?
We provide a variety of basic pet care needs
including drop in cat care, dog walking, cageless boarding, basic bath, retail, and pet taxi. We also host
a variety of unique community building events centered around pets such as Doggie Singles Night,
Paint Your Pet’s Portrait Class, Yappy Hour For Business Professionals and “Dog-Prov” Comedy Show
where comedians and dogs align.
How does your business get involved in your community?
We host free adoption and fundraiser events for rescues in the community. The owner Victoria also is a volunteer foster parent for the Chicago French Bulldog Rescue by taking in dogs who need a home. Victoria rehabilitates these puppy mill rescues and provides them with food, shelter, and love until they are ready for their forever homes. As a member of the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce, we also participate in a variety of local festivals and markets providing free pup cakes or photo booths.
What makes your business stand out from the others?
Our events build community. We believe in creating a space where neighbors know each other by name and creating a strong network of pet owners and pet lovers in the city of Chicago.
Is there anything you offer that no one else does?
Yes! Our Doggie Singles Nights are a great way for single people in Chicago who love pets or own a pet to meet other singles in the same boat. People walk away with new friends, and sometimes, a date!
How We Found Eachother
What makes a good partnership with your collaborators?
Integrity, communication, and relationships. Our company culture believes in three basic tenets - fun, flexible, family and we try to emulate those values in our relationship with FLATS.
Why did you think FLATS® was a good partnership?
FLATS strives to create community and we love that SIT Social shares the same values. FLATS goes above and beyond in any space they create by innovating and providing ways for their residents to become part of a small family. We love seeing their creative ideas come to life with fun happenings and unique spaces that bring people together. Living in a big city can sometimes be alienating and it’s important to feel connected to people around you.
Are there any events/organizations coming up that you want to plug into your page?
We are always hosting fun and innovative events and welcome all FLATS residents to attend. The best way to keep in touch about our upcoming events is through our facebook page, website, or our Eventbrite's
page. FLATS residents can also share their ideas or reach out to us about hosting private parties, dog
birthdays, or their next fundraising event that they want pets involved in. Get online for the latest
happenings such as our annual HOWL-O-WEEN event or our next Yappy Hour where you can bring
your pup out and BYOB to meet other business professionals in the neighborhood. We look forward
to meeting and getting to know all of you! Pet lovers are just as welcome as pet owners. You don’t
have to own a pet to attend one of our events.
