The Jumping Bulldog is Astoria’s first One-Stop pet care center offering grooming, daycare + boarding, training and veterinary services! We also carry holistic foods and treats, toys for cats and dogs, spa products, and many other pet supplies.
As a long-time Astoria, New York, resident, Tania Firrigno and her French Bulldog, Oskar, are a common sight all around the Ditmars area. After her last corporate employment of almost 14 years at one of New York City’s premier international banks, she left her VP-position to devote her time to the needs of the animal companions around her neighborhood. In the summer of 2007 Tania established Astoria’s first true pet boutique on 23rd Avenue, where pets rule and pet lovers meet to spoil their pets!
Just recently, Tania closed her boutique and moved operations to her second location on 23rd Avenue and 27th Street, where she continues to offer the best care for our local pets, and she added veterinary care to her already extensive menu of services.
Tania is currently the proud mom of an adorable Frenchie as well as two very sweet rescue cats; a calico named Lexie, and a black cat named Molly, who was found in a dumpster in the Bronx. Tania works closely with local rescue organizations as well as with the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals. Her adoption efforts have been supported by fellow pet lover and New York State Senator, Michael Gianaris.
Tania is fully certified in Pet CPR by the American Red Cross, and she is an active supporter of the ASPCA, The Humane Society of the United States, and The Sato Project (The Dead Dog Beach PR Project), as well as a number of Astoria based pet rescue groups. She supports local charities by making financial donations and donating non-perishable products.
The Jumping Bulldog is a local drop-off point for neighbors to deposit gently used goods that will then be passed on to those who are in need.
Whenever possible, Tania fosters pets and helps them find new adopted parents. Among those critters with new homes is a pit bull, two rabbits, a guinea pig, a poodle, three cats, and an iguana. If you have a pet for adoption, contact her and she may be able to help.
