Skip the coffee, help a DOG or CAT charity! Paws on Pine Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Blog|FiDI|TriBeCa|BPC|

dog cat charityI have the BEST personal trainer ever. Her name is Patricia and there are SO many reasons why I love her. Besides kicking my ass twice a week, she LOVES animals, especially cats. She does SO much for them.  She even started what she calls “giving Friday” where every Friday she donates money she would normally spend on coffee and what not to various animal organizations! Please check out her Facebook page:

and please buy something for a sweet kitty at her Amazon Wish List-

I’ve been donating money to some of my favorite animal charities for a long time and recently starting to do more hands on work which I REALLY LOVE! Here are some of my favorites-

I’m so fortunate to have met Kylie Edmond. She is the co-founder of Rock and Rawhide. I was able to sponsor Paws on Pine drop boxes across Lower Manhattan where almost any pet related item can be dropped (except open food and treats) and Kylie’s team brings these needed supplies to rescue groups across the country. Our neighbors downtown have been SOOOO generous. Huge love to Petropolis and the Downtown Veterinary Medical Hospitals for hosting the drop boxes and helping shelter pets across the USA! 🙂

I got involved with the French Bulldog Rescue Network because of my love for Frenchies. While I love all animals, Frenchies are super special to me- especially after losing my baby Bebop back in October. They have a lot of health issues and many people don’t understand the responsibilities associated with owning one (well, they own you). I want to adopt all of them, but can’t. I can’t believe my life doesn’t include a Frenchie- I might need to change that!

Mr Bones and Co. is a non-profit animal welfare organization. They do so much to help so many animals in need in the NYC area and beyond by hosting events, raising awareness and facilitating adoptions. I met Elli Frank, their Executive Director through a friend.  She is incredible. Not only does she put 1000% into Mr. Bones, but also runs a super successful PR company! #girlpower. I’m hoping to be able to transport some cute puppies and kittens and maybe foster! 🙂




Besides the amazing groups I mentioned above, there are some tiny, tiny rescue groups who don’t have the manpower or resources that the bigger guys do-

So, instead of getting that iced double caramel cappuccino nonsense at Starbucks today (that does sound good though), take a few mins and donate to one of the amazing groups and people above or to your favorite animal charity. Send me the confirmation at and Paws on Pine will match it (up to $1,000 total through 8/30).

Stay cool NYC and of course big love to our clients’, fans, friends and family.  Thank you for making my dreams come true every single day and HUGE love to my Pet Specialists for extending my love through FiDi, TriBeca and BPC!
