Our Story

Ciao! Did you know Pawz & Me was actually born in Italy? Our Director Emily started to rethink her Hospitality career whilst galivanting around Europe with her partner Corey and gushing over all the well-loved European street cats and dogs. Whilst laying on a stiff mattress in an uncomfortably hot Airbnb in central Oslo, Norway the night before they flew home to Sydney, Em decided there and then to change the course of her life forever.

Since these humble beginnings, we’ve worked with over 700 clients, now offering a growing range of quality Pet Services, and there’s plenty more to come for the future at Pawz & Me!

WE ARE PASSIONATE

We have a genuine passion for the health, wellbeing and happiness of animals. This allows us to never stop learning, growing, and giving back to them.

WE ARE DEPENDABLE

Our unwavering commitment and flexible scheduling gives our Clients the reliable service they depend upon, sometimes at the drop of a hat!

WE WOW OUR CLIENTS

Our Clients are the lifeblood of our business. We strive to meet and exceed their expectations by providing quality pet care, creating memorable relationships, and working with empathy and understanding.

Emily

Founder

Em is the Top Dog who helps to keep the wheels spinning here at Pawz & Me. She founded P&M in 2017 after dreaming of working with animals since she was a kid. A 5-week European adventure in 2017 left her returning to her boring job and saying “Nah… Not for me, thanks.” and since then she’s never looked back!

As well as being an avid animal lover, Em is big on female empowerment and providing local employment opportunities for young women. She has built Pawz & Me with an open and empowered work culture where our all-women team can pursue their passion in animal care and break the stereotypes and boundaries of our industry.

Em is passionate about all things pets and supporting small biz with community over competition. She takes huge pride in the achievements of Pawz & Me’s incredible team of women and is always looking for the next venture to expand the Pawz & Me brand.

Laura

Operations Manager

Laura is a hopelessly devoted dog lover with a passion for outdoor adventures, exercise, gardening and nutrition. Having recently moved out of her childhood home and leaving her two sweet and cheeky family dogs behind, she would LOVE to fill the void part time by caring for your beautiful pets.

Laura has a soft spot for the vibrant energy, intelligence and agility of Border Collies, but would adore getting to know and working with as many different breeds as possible before making the exciting decision of taking on a new pup of her own.
