RADCLIFF, Ky. --A pair of entrepreneurs in Kentucky recently came up with a novel idea to help pets and their owners get fit at the same time.
Their idea is Lost Pounds Fitness and Pet Center, opened this month, for both people and animals, local station WAVE reports.
Norma Cooper co-founded the center with Toshie Murrell. They started as a non-profit rescue shelter, but got concerned over pet obesity.
Researchers estimate more than half of dogs and cats are obese.
Though they have pet daycare and foster pets, they're focus is on fitness. The center's owners reportedly want to add classes for both obedience and exercise.
