Our experience with animals spans over many years including animal rescue, shelter work, education, grooming & training but we are always growing & learning from animals and the humans who love them. 


Suburban Paws is an owner run & operated pet care company. All services are provided personally & only by the owner Rebecca which means your pets will always get very personal care from the same person that knows & understands yours & your pets unique needs. No multiple employees - Suburban Paws likes to keep it personal. Rebecca feels that a good relationship with humans & animals is important in order to provide comfort & security to clients & their pets. This is the personal touch that make clients & their pets like family & that clients have relied on for years. 


Avoid the stress of worry & imposing on friends & family. You can be comfortable knowing the same sitter will always be caring for your pets and you can count on compassion, experience & reliability. .


Affiliated with various professional groups, a shelter & rescue volunteer, honored for outstanding animal volunteer work, certified in Pet First Aid & CPR & a graduate of Animal Behavior College the Rebecca has the experience & the compassion your pets deserve.

About The Owner

I've always loved animals. I can't remember a time when I didn't want to be surrounded by them. Though they've always been my passion, I didn't start my pet care career until later in life.


I've worked with animals in some capacity at different points in my life. As a college student I worked in a grooming shop and later in life I joined animal awareness groups and became involved in animal rescue. I've worked with, volunteered for and assisted many different organizations including Bideawee,  Adopt-A-Buddy Pug Rescue, Small Animal Rescue, Waggytail Rescue & Adoption NYC, Freeport Animal Shelter, Bobbi & The Strays, Kittynap Rescue & Adoption, helped with behavior consults for Curly Tail Pug Rescue and for several years independently ran the organization Paws For Rescue.


I obtained my Master's degree in 1999 in Audiology and worked in the medical field for several years but in 2007 that changed when I left my career to venture out on my own providing pet care services full time. I was finally doing what I am passionate about.


graduated from Animal Behavior College & obtained my certification as a dog trainer. I have absolutely loved becoming a dog trainer and never stop expanding my knowledge about the incredible world of dog behavior science. 


I love animals and I truly love what I do. I look forward to caring for and working with each animal and their families. Over the years many clients & their pets have become family.
