Andrew Kim and Mark Boonnark, founders of Los Angeles-based Healthy Spot, have acquired Holistic Hound, a natural pet store in Berkeley, Calif.

"Mark and Andrew opened their first Healthy Spot location in 2008 for the same reasons I started Holistic Hound," said Heidi Hill, founder of Holistic Hound. "They are also passionate about supporting the community by providing quality pet products and services, as well as investing in their employees."

The Healthy Spot and Holistic Hound retail teams will be working closely together to ensure a smooth transition over the next few months, officials said. Healthy Spot will be dedicating this time to gain a better understanding of the needs of the community and will continue to look for ways to improve the customer experience, officials added.

"We are honored that Heidi entrusted Healthy Spot to continue her legacy of improving the health, wellness and quality of life for dogs and cats in the Berkeley community," Kim said. "We are excited to share our passion for healthy pet lifestyles and be a trusted resource for the neighborhood."

Hill said that she will now focus her attention on growing the existing cannabidiol (CBD) supplement business, also called Holistic Hound.
