Our Story

Business founder Beth Ruppel moved to the Central West End of St. Louis in 2001.

Soon after, her and her husband, Paul, rescued a German shepherd/corgi mix named Wolfgang. Little did they know how he would change their lives!

They quickly recognized a distinct need in the community for a business  to serve the neighborhood pets. In 2004, Beth turned that need into reality and embarked on a new business venture that would become known as Wolfgang's Pet Stop.

Over time, Beth and Paul grew their business as well as their family. Clients often remark how quickly their daughter has grown as she's gone from toddling around the shop to cuddling with and reading to the little dog pack.

As a reflection of its client's needs, the business model has pivoted over the years and now focuses more on quality services.

Operating this business in a neighborhood that I love for all these years has brought me closer to my neighbors and their pets. I've nurtured long-lasting friendships, for which I'm so grateful.
