About Us

Why Choose Paws at Play?

Paws at Play was born out of a simple idea, provide the highest level of support and personal care to animal lovers and their four-legged family members. We are a brand-new facility established in 2022. We provide Daycare, Boarding, and Grooming in the city of Orange and surrounding neighborhoods.

We founded Paws at Play as a lifelong dream and mission to care for all dogs with the same love and manner we do for our dog, Winston.

Winston is the ultimate Dog and the reason our facility exists. He is a mascot and symbol of the highest standards in personal pet care. He loves to come to work daily and greet our four-legged furry friends and their family members that come to visit.

Watch your dog race through our doors with excitement once they experience all the cuddles, fun, exercise, and love we provide, day in and day out.


When we first had the idea of starting our Dog Daycare and Boarding facility, our vision was to be small-scale and provide a more hands-on personal service to our clients and their four-legged best friends. We wanted to set ourselves apart from the rest.


Creating a happy and fulfilling environment for the dogs visiting and our employees is part of our daily goals. Happy workers tend to make our doggy guests happy too. We want our employees to grow with us. We love all dogs and especially love working with them.


Our mission is to make every dog’s stay at Paws at Play happy. Keep play groups small. If your dog bounces with excitement when you pull up to our facility, we know we are connecting with them! We want you to only think of us for your pet care needs.


As owners of Paws at Play, opening up this facility has been our lifelong dream! We have put everything into it and love coming to work! Each day brings a different experience, and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. We plan to do this for a very long time!


We know your Dog is a much-loved member of the family. Selecting a suitable Dog care facility is a huge decision and one you need to feel comfortable with.

How do you know you’ve made the right choice? Will your pup be well treated? How regularly will they be exercised and allowed outside to play? How many potty breaks will they get? Are the handlers experienced? And so on.

As a responsible pet owner, no doubt you have plenty of questions.
We were in your exact position a couple of years ago. As animal lovers with a new puppy, we had many criteria for a suitable place to take our precious boy, Winston.

Many facilities were missing the standard of care we wanted for him. Some facilities didn’t deliver on their promise. The facilities that did meet our criteria had no vacancies. It was a frustrating situation.
With the number of new puppy parents since covid and the lack of suitable facilities, finding a place for Winston when we needed it wasn’t easy. We encountered many dog parents feeling the same way.

So, what did we do? We decided to create our own facility—an unparalleled, all-encompassing doggie daycare and boarding service run by passionate, experienced dog-loving professionals who genuinely love animals.

We wanted to create a place of love, security, and a fun time. A place where the type of care promised and paid for means something. The same comforts that they receive at home. Our door is always open, and we hope you will stop by to meet us and take a tour.
