Happy Paws Dog Walking & Pet Related Services, Inc.
The love of animals was instilled in me at birth. My great grandfather, born in the 1800s, was a zoological vet. A wide variety of animals roamed the garden of the family house in old Havana. Everyone in the family did their share in caring for exotic birds, parrots, pet chickens and roosters, cats, dogs and the families 45-year-old tortoise. It was a home full of love and laughter where some family members were great at impersonating their favorite animal sounds.
As an adult working in the corporate world for over twenty-five years, the last eleven years of that time working in New York, the opportunity arose to go home to Miami to be closer to my aging parents. Taking care of animals was never missing in my life, however. I always had dogs, and Coco, my blue and gold Macaw, who attracted loads of attention in Manhattan. Through the years I had had regrets of not having studied a career path to work with animals, but I then found the opportunity to do just that. I took eight to nine months off, developed my website, found my very helpful accountant, and in 2004 the beginning of Happy Paws was a reality.
My dream for Happy Paws was to provide a personalized service for those who wanted a home away from home for their furry babies. That dream manifested as Happy Paws provides a nice, clean and safe environment offering lots of love and affection to client’s dogs. Clients have the peace of mind knowing that each dog at Happy Paws is vetted to ensure the safety of their beloved pet. Sixteen years later I am still fulfilling this dream and doing the work that I love.
