Meet the Owner
I have always had a love and respect for animals and have been in the grooming industry since 1967. In 1973, I opened a grooming shop in Pittsburgh, Sue's Pet Parlor, the only shop in the Pittsburgh area that was under the original ownership for 31 years.
I am President of Animal Care & Welfare Inc., a non-profit organization, established in 1970 by Edward J. Blotzer Jr. Animal Care & Welfare (AC&W) provides humane education, dog/cat rescue and adoptions, as well as low cost spaying and neutering. We also assist with animal cruelty prevention in Pennsylvania.
The adoption program for homeless pets that I started at Sue's Pet Parlor is very successful at finding homes for over 100 homeless pets per year. I carefully select and temperament test homeless pets from the local animal shelters. They are then spayed and neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, learn basic training, groomed and are adopted into loving homes from the pet resort.
Because of the admiration I have for animals, I decided that pampered pets need a vacation place with lots of TLC while their owners are away. That's why I established Paws Here Awhile Pet Resort, Inc.
I live on the premises so your pet will never be left alone.
Personalized attention is my main focus!
