Every pet deserves a chance to live a happy life outside a cage.

We believe every pet owner can make a difference. Every pet sit brings a pet closer to finding a good home and fulfilling this dream.

Founded in 2008, Pawfect Day is a passionate small business that gives back. A portion of our proceeds goes to local animal shelters. We are incorporated, bonded and insured through Insurers of the Carolinas, and we are members of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, Pet Sitters International and Association of Pet Sitting Excellence. We’ve been featured on ABC’s The Revolution, Working Woman Report on WPIX, Latina magazine, CRAVE NYC and Women’s Radio. Our Dog Walkers and Cat Sitters are Pet CPR certified.

But, you can say it all started with a chicken.

A trip to the corner grocery store in Washington Heights led to an encounter with a dirty one. It was dark and rainy and there he was, wandering. Skipping the store, I bathed and fed it at home. On what was supposed to be a college shopping trip downtown, I brought home a baby husky. During an apartment hunt, I ran into an abandoned apartment with 3 kittens and 1 guinea pig. They were all rescued. After college, a street cat followed me home. I named him Lucky.

Eddie was rescued from a kill shelter in South Carolina. Little Edgar was a charmer from day one to everyone! I saw him online with GROWL Rescue (501non-profit organization) and volunteered to foster to adopt him, it was only a couple of days until he had charmed me and indeed found his forever home! Little Eddie now struts his stuff everywhere and he rules the streets in Manhattan. He now holds pet food drives during the holidays, walks at Bark for Life (a cancer walk), has appeared on the Working Woman Report on WPIX and is strutting down the Catwalk for Paws in the City (an event towards helping other rescues like himself)!
