SCRUF is short for “Your Special Creature’s Responsible Urban Friend – Pet Care Collective.” We are a worker-owned cooperative, meaning all the pet care service providers own the business and have a direct say in how it is operated.

SCRUF’s mission is to create an accessible educational environment that supports worker-owners in providing excellent pet care. Our vision is to raise local pet care standards while providing sustainable and enjoyable jobs for people who struggle to find employment.
