What Makes Us Unique?

Paws 'n Claws Pet Resort is a state-of-the-art pet lodging and grooming facility. What makes our business unique is two fold. First, we all love animals. We like caring for them, feeding them, cleaning them and playing with them. It is what we do best. Second, our buildings are the newest and most modern pet facilities in the tri-state area. Your pets will be surrounded in comfort.

Each pet condo is private. For our Girard visitors - we offer a private outdoor patio. The air is electronically cleaned with no drafts. The whole building is air conditioned and humidity controlled. We have televisions and stereos throughout the facility so that it is never "too quiet", as silence will raise the stress level in dogs. Our Girard Location includes a 3,000 square foot, outdoor Play Yard for your dogs to romp and play in.

Paws ‘n Claws Pet Resort in Girard has been the premier pet loging and styling establishment in Erie County since 2001. It doesn't matter if they spend the day at our full service pet styling and bathing spa, overnight, or longer - they get indiviualized attention, including a biscuit at bedtime.

Please feel free to call as often as you would like to check on your pets from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM!
