That’s where Paw Paradise Goregaon comes to the rescue.
What is Paw Paradise?
Located on Film City Road, Paw Paradise Goregaon is a fully air-conditioned boarding and daycare centre for pets. It has a sizeable space of 850 square feet.
Paw Paradise is a haven for all pets – dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, etc. The boarding facilities include meals and routine walks. At a time only 15 dogs are accommodated.
It also offesr pick-up and drop facilities for nearby locations. Dogs are taken for regular walks thrice a day and provided with meals that they are used to eating at home. Puppies and smaller dogs are taken out more often if required and they ensure that the pet’s routine is not changed.
Fresh chicken and rice is made every day for dogs who are used to eating home-cooked meals. Paw Paradise is in close proximity to the Bombay Veterinary hospital and they also have a vet on call 24×7.
Who is Paw Paradise?
Paw Paradise Goregaon was started in 2017 by Prema Mendonca. With three dogs and two cats, she found it tough to find a suitable boarding place for her pets. ‘I always faced a problem when it came to keeping my pets at a secure location. Whenever I would bring my pets back from a boarding house, they would come back with infections. Once when I went to pick up my pets at a daycare in north Mumbai, they had been tied outside in the hot sun because they couldn’t be accommodated inside! Had I been a few minutes late, they could have suffered a heat stroke. And despite providing meals they had fed my dogs treats that they were not used to. My cocker-spaniel was in such a bad condition that she was throwing up the whole ride home’, Prema emotionally narrates.
It was instances like these that prompted Prema to do something, not only for her own furry babies but for other pets as well.
The Paw Paradise journey
Prema has been fostering strays and animals who need forever-homes since six years now.
‘I got an opportunity to work in Dubai in 2014 and I took my babies (pets) with me. When I came across the boarding and daycares there, I was amazed at the standard and quality of sanitation of the places. It was something I had never witnessed in India’, Prema says.
When she returned to India after two years, Prema went back to taking care of her pets and fostering dogs.
While she was initially hesitant to go commercial, she finally took her first step towards setting up her own boarding place in 2017.
The Passion for Animal Care
Prema is against buying and selling of pets. She would always recommend people to adopt instead of shop.
Ever since Paw Paradise Goregaon began, Prema has been able to help pet parents, fearlessly keep their dogs at the perfect place and ensure they have a safe stay. ‘I love dogs and interact with each one of them coming here. That’s why I take in a limited number at a time. I assure that all the pets coming here will be treated like my own kids. Paw Paradise is my home and truly a paradise for pets,’ says this passionate animal-lover.
