Welcome! Our names are Rony and Jennifer Assaf.

Rony & JenniferRony & JenniferGET TO KNOW THE OWNERS:

We have been proudly serving our pet community near and far since August of 2008. We have no children and decided, what seems like long ago, to share the love we have for our pets with other families. Our philosophy has always been to provide a service that feels like home for your pet, allowing you to leave them in our care, guilt-free.

Paws and Claws is licensed with the State of Maine and is a member of the Mid Maine Chamber of Commerce. We are also fully insured.

Paws and Claws delivers a premier, unique level of service in a high-paced, athletic, friendly home where your beloved pet is treated like our own! In our experience, using positive reinforcement, freedom to move about and be a dog, and a “pack like” mentality are what dogs thrive on.

To ensure the safety of all of our members, we require that dogs are fixed by 6 months of age. Paws and Claws does accept puppies. We also require that your pet is social, friendly and vaccinated. 

All precautions are in place for the safety of your beloved four-legged family member, as described by The State of Maine requirements for licensing. In addition, the staff here is trained in American Red Cross First Aid and both Jennifer and Bianca became Certified in Pet First Aid and CPR in November of 2016.

In the event of an accident, immediate attention to any injuries are addressed both with you and/or your Veterinarian. Paws and Claws does have an Emergency Veterinarian available 24/7.

The safety of all of our clients is super important to us.





A happy pet makes a great companion!
