About Us

Meet the Owners of Paws ‘n Pads Pet Care!-
Serving the Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor area for over 10 years!

Penny & Rachel

Paws ‘n Pads Pet Care, LLC was founded in 2011 by a mother-daughter pet sitting team in Ypsilanti, MI. Penny and Rachel have spent their lives loving and caring for animals, of their own and through various rescues and charitable organizations in the community. With business education and successful entrepreneurial backgrounds, they decided to combine their skills and love for animals to start a business visiting pets, dog walking during the day, and having dogs stay overnight in Penny’s home. As the PnP doggy clientele family grew, they opened Paws ‘n Pads Pet Care: Doggy Daycare & Boarding facility in 2016. The facility has seen so many developments and growth since it’s opening, with more plans in store. Penny and Rachel have felt so blessed caring for so many wonderful dogs and are excited for the future of Paws ‘n Pads!

Happy Days Dog & Cat Rescue

HDDCR is an all-volunteer, 501c3 registered non-profit rescue that rescues dogs and cats in need throughout Michigan and beyond its borders, to Ohio and other states depending on the need. We pull from rural shelters where adoptions are few and kill rates are high. We focus on 'urgent' lists and those dogs and cats that are overlooked because they are unattractive, older or sick. We believe that every animal should have a second chance at a loving home; even if that loving home is in a hospice situation. We exist and rely solely on the generosity of our donors and our hardworking volunteers.
