Jennifer Shawe
Owner & Pack Leader

Shawe’s Paws launched in 2008 when Jennifer was only 19 years old!

To say that Jennifer loves animals is an understatement. With her heart set on wanting to become a veterinarian since the age of six, Jen started walking dogs for free around the surrounding neighborhoods of Philadelphia. She was going to keep doing this part-time while going to school to become a vet, but Jen learned that there was an obvious need for knowledgeable pet professionals, and for these professionals to love and care for pets while their parents were at work, on vacation, or otherwise unavailable.
