PET CARE SERVICES
We are fortunate to live in an area where there
is an abundance of terrific pet service providers: dog daycare and
boarding, grooming, pet sitting, trainers and behaviorists,
veterinarians and alternative care providers. Paddywack believes that a
well connected pet care community is beneficial to everyone. To this
end, we have compiled a Community Resources Notebook available for
review at our store. It includes business cards and brochures from
service providers who have agreed to share their information with us.
Please feel free to utilize this resource the next time you visit our
Note: If you are a service provider and would like your information
included in our Community Resources Notebook, please mail or drop off
your information at our store.
