7 Pet Care Business Success Stories [2023]
Start A Pet Care Business

Animal care facilities offer day and night care services. Overnight care lets customers leave their pets at the pet care center to be safe from accidents and predators. Starting an overnight pet care business can be rewarding, with pet ownership on the rise. You can start a day and night care pet service to maximize profits.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a pet care business:

1. Hands N Paws ($96K/year)

Benny DiFranco (from Columbus, OH, USA) started Hands N Paws about 5 years ago.

$8K / month
1 founders / 4 employees

Case Study

Hi readers! My name is Benny and I am the proud CEO and Founder of Hands N Paws- an in-home pet sitting and dog walking company serving pet parents in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio.

I am working on building a pet sitting and dog walking enterprise. Through the years, my inspirations have helped me to see the potential in ANY business whose operations are structured and executed the right way (more on this later in the interview!). I am looking to create the next McDonald’s of in-home pet care, and a big feat it is! However, I’ve learned that when you put your heart and soul into what you want to accomplish, you begin to realize that the sky's the true limit.


2. Woofie's ($3M/year)

Amy Reed (from Ashburn) started Woofie's almost 19 years ago.

$250K / month
2 founders / 11 employees

Case Study

My name is Amy Reed and in 2004 my neighbor, Leslie Barron, and I founded Woofie’s - a professional pet care services company in Northern Virginia. Woofie’s offers Pet Sitting, Dog Walking, and Mobile Pet Grooming services.

With 16+ years of experience, Leslie and I have seen the industry grow and mature, we have turned challenges into opportunities, and we continue to keep Woofie’s evolving well ahead of the pack!
