“Growing up I always wanted to become a Veterinarian. Once I graduated from Veterinary college, I worked at the Race Course as well as at a private small animals clinic. It was here that I realized I needed to bring more awareness to people about the needs of animals and provide a haven for pets where they can be wild and free with no restraints. This led to the birth of PetStepin’. I started PetStepin’ in 2009 as an open system of boarding and daycare, where pets were socialized and allowed to mingle and play with each other all day. These concepts were very new as PetStepin’ was one of the first places to have such a system where animals were not leashed or kept locked in cages. My idea was to provide a healthy, hygienic, loving environment where pets and their parents can relax and enjoy their holidays apart!! With our grooming spa, pet parties and adoption drives I’m always trying to bring something new to our facility and am open to creative ideas!! After practicing in the Middle East for the last few years, I’m back in India to make a difference by bringing a more holistic method of approach to pet care. PetStepin’ has always a been my “happy place” and I hope to share it’s magic with many more!!”
“After graduation, I was working for 2.5 years in HR. I have always loved animals and wanted to work with them like taking care of them, catering to their needs and pampering them endlessly, as that makes both them and me happy!! This is the same joy I get from my own pets. I have 4 cuddly babies ..Pepper(lab), Hazel(gret), Bruno(gret) & Baby(bhound)..who complete my family!
After working a year at PetStepin’, I completed a professional pet grooming course and now am working as a Certified Pet Stylist at Paw’lished @PetStepin’, the spa, along with being a full-time manager. I am so happy that I got the opportunity to pursue my passion for animals and make it into a professional career..all thanks to PetStepin’.”
“Working at PetStepin’ would have it’s fare share of work tension and hurdles as any job would, but when I would be having a busy crazy day, things seem less complicated when I would just look out and see two dogs playing in the sun or chasing some leaves or prancing in a drizzle…better still nudge me for a warm cuddle and fall asleep on my lap while I try to manage my work with this warm body on me…And not only the doggies but the warm purrs of the kitties or sweet sound of the birds and squeaks from the guinepigs. That’s what made it all worth it!!
At the end of the day, one feels a sense of accomplishment and it’s a very thankful job for sure. I mean I even took home my best friend (Dino) from PetStepin’…with whom I can’t imagine a single day without. He even helps me with all my other foster animals. Working at PetStepin’ really teaches u how to be a better person and for that I will always be grateful :)”
“From a qualitative and social research specialist background, to fundraising, and social venture design projects for adolescents and high risk groups the one thing left ; was to work on the wild side..here’s where PetStepin’ came to fore. First I started volunteering and learning on the job about veterinary science and animal psychology.
I have experienced many memorable moments with tearful farewells for creatures big and tiny, thus makes working here such a pleasure. Its hard work though..make no mistake, there are very many tasks and decisions from diet to animal hygiene that need a self motivating and positive mindset to accomplish. I am truly glad to be a part of the PetStepin’ crew!!”

“When I first joined PetStepin’ madam finished training me and I actually understood how much care needs to be given for even the smallest things. My favorite part is when I get to decorate the kennel for birthday parties and playing with all the dogs on a daily basis.”
“I am in charge of cooking for the managers and the pets. I have learnt so much about how some dogs need special diets to help deal with various medical conditions. Riday, my son, has learnt so much from all these animals and for this I am grateful to PetStepin’ .”
“I came to stay at PetStepin’ with my family one year back. It is alot of hardwork but my favorite part is when I’m outside playing with the doggies after their evening dinner. I am really glad to be part of the PetStepin’ team.”
