Established in 2009 by an animal lover named Nicole, Paws and Claws originated from a deep-rooted passion for animal welfare. Nicole, having dedicated herself to volunteering and aiding shelter animals early in her career, transitioned from a corporate job to found our pet care company. Starting small in the Madison area with Nicole and her sister, Corinne, as the dynamic team, Paws and Claws steadily expanded their staff and services, now boasting a robust team of over ten devoted employees.
Corinne, a Marine Corps veteran with a lifelong admiration for animals, originally became an integral part of the company working for her sister. Her journey from fostering animals with her family to actively serving in the Marines and volunteering at animal shelters while pursuing higher education has shaped her dedication to animal care as well as leading a team of pet care professionals.
Returning to Wisconsin from her time in South Carolina and Tennessee, Corinne took over the family business in 2019, driven by an unwavering commitment to providing top-notch care for pets. A University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate, Corinne holds Madison close to her heart.
Paws and Claws stands out not only for their profound love for animals but also for their professionalism and state-of-the-art approach to pet care. Their team of pet professionals, certified in pet CPR and first aid, utilizes cutting-edge software to ensure outstanding communication and the utmost well-being of the pets entrusted to their care, always striving to provide a familial environment for every animal they serve.
