Welcome to Paw Keepers Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Service

Where Love and Care Know No Bounds!

For over two decades, I have embarked on a heartwarming journey, providing unwavering love and exceptional care for our cherished furry friends in the comfort of their own homes. My passion for animals was nurtured in the embrace of a loving family in Maryland and amidst the rustic beauty of my grandparents' farm in southern Virginia. These early experiences instilled in me a deep sense of compassion and responsibility for all living beings, especially those without a home.

Having grown up surrounded by the love of pets and the serenity of nature, I carried these invaluable lessons into my adulthood. While pursuing my education at Trinity University in Washington, DC, I opened my heart and my home to countless stray souls, offering them solace, shelter, and love. In 2000, I made a significant move to Woodbridge, where I found a place with a spacious yard, allowing my fur babies to live their best lives.

After 17 years in government affairs management, I realized my true calling lay in a pet-related vocation. In 2003, Paw Keepers Dog Walking Pet Sitting was born from a dream nurtured over the years. This venture was more than just a business; it was a heartfelt commitment to providing unparalleled care, the kind of care I desired for my own beloved pets.

At Paw Keepers, we don’t just walk dogs and feed cats – we foster genuine connections. Over the past two decades, I have had the privilege of caring for a myriad of pets, forming enduring friendships not only with the animals but also with the families who entrust us with their beloved companions. These bonds are the foundation of our service, and you can hear the stories of these cherished relationships in our glowing testimonials.

But our service extends beyond the families we serve; it embraces the larger community of animals in need. Throughout the years, I have opened my heart and my home to 14 homeless cats and dogs, ensuring their health and safety while working tirelessly to spay and neuter countless others. Fostering kittens and aiding them in finding their perfect forever homes has been a labor of love, one that has taught me invaluable lessons about the power of love and affection.

At Paw Keepers, we understand that every pet is unique, each with its personality, quirks, and preferences. That’s why we specialize in building bonds of friendship and trust through tender loving care and stimulating play. Whether you’re at work or on vacation, rest assured that your beloved companions are not just taken care of – they are cherished, pampered, and made to feel at home.

Currently, my own home is shared with two delightful kitties, Samantha and Timmothy, both lovingly rescued, one with special health needs. They bring boundless happiness into my life, reminding me every day of the joy that pets bring.
