About Us

Bone Jour, Inc. has been in business since 1986. From day one, our mission has been to provide people and their dogs with a loving, happy environment for services and retail. We love our customers and their dogs. Owner, Becky Pugh, loves them so much that she married one. The human customer that is! We have been and are a part of so many wonderful families and their dogs lives. These relationships and our dedication to the craft of grooming and the care of dogs are the reason Bone Jour has flourished and continues to grow.


Montgomery County Humane Society

Montgomery County Humane Society

The purpose of the Montgomery County Humane Society is to provide humane education, give shelter, prevent pain and cruelty, and to place all animals in appropriate environments, with a goal of zero euthanasia for all adoptable animals.

Bone Jour started a satellite adoption program with the MCHS in the early 1990's where dogs and cats were fostered on site at the shop. For 15 years, homes were found for dozens and dozens of cats and dogs. Due to space, we can no longer foster pets on site, but, do urge you to follow this link to the website of MCHS where you can view all kind of dogs, cats, birds and small animals that need homes!

Second Chance Wildlife CenterSecond Chance Wildlife Center

The mission of Second Chance Wildlife Center is to facilitate the conservation of wildlife through rehabilitation, education and referrals. As a relatively new science, wildlife rehabilitation is a growing field. Innovations and advancements in care and treatment are constantly being made, and the staff and volunteers of SCWC keep abreast of these developments through networking with other rehabilitators, membership in state, national and international wildlife rehabilitation organizations, and attending conferences and training seminars.

Second Chance Wildlife is a treasure. We have personally experienced their magic in caring for baby birds who have fallen from their nests. When you take a baby bird in, they find an aquarium "nest' in their bird room. Each nest has baby birds of a certain age. They are so experienced and have nursed almost all of the birds to the main goal, release into the wild.

Humane Society of the United StatesThe Humane Society of the United States

The HSUS covers all creatures and works in so many ways to secure humane treatment for them. We are currently working with them to bring attention to the horrible seal slaughter that goes on each year in Canada.

The Humane Society of the United States is the nation's largest and most effective animal protection organization—backed by 11 million Americans, or one in every 28. Established in 1954, The HSUS seeks a humane and sustainable world for all animals—a world that will also benefit people. We are America's mainstream force against cruelty, exploitation and neglect, as well as the most trusted voice extolling the human-animal bond.

HSUS mission statement: Celebrating Animals, Confronting Cruelty.

We work to reduce suffering and to create meaningful social change for animals by advocating for sensible public policies, investigating cruelty and working to enforce existing laws, educating the public about animal issues, joining with corporations on behalf of animal-friendly policies, and conducting hands-on programs that make ours a more humane world. We are the lead disaster relief agency for animals, and we provide direct care for thousands of animals at our sanctuaries and rescue facilities, wildlife rehabilitation centers, and mobile veterinary clinics.

We celebrate pets, as well as wildlife and habitat protection. We are the nation's most important advocate for local humane societies, providing shelter standards and evaluations, training programs, a national advertising campaign to promote pet adoption, direct support, and national conferences. We are building a Humane Wildlife Services program to provide homeowners and businesses with humane and effective solutions to conflicts with our wild neighbors. The HSUS publishes All Animals, a membership magazine, and Animal Sheltering, a bi-monthly magazine for animal sheltering professionals.

We confront national and global cruelties through major campaigns targeting the barbaric practices of dogfighting and cockfighting; abusive puppy mills where dogs are treated not like family but like production machines; the worst cruelties of factory farming in modern agribusiness such as confinement of animals in crates and cages; inhumane and unsporting hunting practices such as "canned hunts" of captive exotic animals; the slaughter of American horses for export to foreign countries where horsemeat is considered a delicacy; and the clubbing of baby seals and other animals for the commercial fur trade. Our track record of effectiveness has led to meaningful victories for animals in Congress, state legislatures, courtrooms and corporate boardrooms.
