Paws pet boutique Changes Latitudes - A Look Back

Posted by Michelle, Founder of Paws pet boutique in Annapolis, Maryland on

Paws pet boutique is heading south and changing latitudes!

Thank you for making a dream come true!

When looking back on working at Paws pet boutique the last 20 years, we feel deep gratitude. For us, it has been more than just a small business offering pet gifts and supplies. It's been a passion where we can work to make a difference in our town, create a pet community and support animal charities dear to our hearts. Through this journey we never expected to meet so many exceptional people and pets, make lifelong friends and feel even more passionate about animals. It has been life changing. 

Shift in Direction

"If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living." - Gail Sheehy

While Annapolis will always hold a special place in our hearts and a lifetime of memories, we are starting a new chapter and heading in a new direction. Paws pet boutique is changing latitudes and relocating to Naples, Florida. Same business philosophy, just a different spot. Please visit! We'd be honored and thrilled.

A Look Back

Shortly after the doors opened to our pet boutique on Maryland Avenue in 1999, we hosted our first dog-friendly function to benefit the SPCA and the rest is history. We've enjoyed supporting animal charities through events we've hosted on a boat, in a marina, at hotels/restaurants, a local winery and in our back courtyard. Not to mention marching in parades with our dog-friendly group to spread some cheer! We're grateful our Jack Russell mascot, Ben, lives on through Ben's Memorial Fund. Here's a look back through photos...
