Happy International Women’s Day!

Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day to all! This year’s theme is Be Bold for Change, where we create a better, more gender-inclusive working world. We at Equipaws Pet Services believe in gender equality for all and are proud and lucky to employ sixteen talented women who take care of our clients with passion, commitment, and care.

Equipaws simply could not exist without our team of ladies, who in addition to being excellent pet care professionals are also daughters, mothers, biologists, students, realtors, groomers, trainers, professional gamers, and even chemists.

Thanks so much to Kira, Kristen, Vale, Leigh, Kesi, Kat, Kara, Natalie, Susan, Sam, Sophia, Nicolle, Ashley, Elaine, and our newest hires, Andrea and Marilee for your positive attitudes, your grace, intelligence, independence, and work ethic. You get things done and are a great example of how women can be great leaders, making a strong case to close the gender gap.
We appreciate you ladies, and all of our sisters and allies. #HappyInternationalWomensDay #BeBoldForChange

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”
― Milan Kundera

“You can say any fool thing to a dog and the dog will just give you this look that says, ‘My GOSH, you’re RIGHT! I NEVER would’ve thought of that!”
― Dave Barry

“In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this.”
― Terry Pratchett

“Time spent with cats is never wasted.”
― Sigmund Freud

What Our Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Clients Mean To Us

 Thank You All for Being Amazing Clients!

We have to admit to being extremely busy with pet sits, dog runs, and doggy play dates all round Miami (pictured, left, with the fabulous Pamela Bond of Pamela Bond Skin Fitness and and her spa pups, Juniper and Lollie). And everyone we know is very busy these days, with Halloween next week, Thanksgiving around the corner, and Christmas and Hanukkah decorations already for sale… So, we feel  like it’s time to stop and count our blessings, and they all come down to this: you, our clients, are our greatest blessing, and our lifeline. What does that mean?

We depend on you for our livelihoods and fulfillment of our amazing careers. Without you, we can’t have these amazing moments where we get to see your pets transform, help them grow, and love life!

We are here to do the best we can for you and your pets, so we try our hardest to be a reliable resource for you. We’re happy to recommend great groomers in your area, happy to be on stand-by during pregnancies (which we’ve done before!), and very happy to helping you find the perfect pet supply store (looking at you, Animal Crackers!). We want to provide peace of mind for our human clients, and LOTS of love, fun, and physical and mental stimulation for our furry and feathered clients.

We just wanted to send a quick thank you to all of our clients who have been with us from our very beginnings. We are so grateful and feel so blessed to have you in our lives.
