Thank you for visiting our site! My name is Danny Offenbacher and I’m the Founder of City of Paws Pet Care, a professional dog walking & pet sitting company based in Manayunk, Philadelphia.

My love for animals stems back to early childhood, when I first felt a special connection with animals. I started walking dogs and pet sitting for neighbors and family friends at 10 years old and dreamed of owning my own business. When I was 16, I started a pet care company in my hometown of Rochester, Michigan and established a client base of over 200 pet owners in a few short years. After graduating from college with a degree in Human Resources, I took a job in Philadelphia and handed off my business to new owners. I immediately started missing my daily interaction with animals and began planning a re-entry into the pet care industry. In 2016, I decided it’s time I get back to doing what I love most – being with animals and managing a business that’s mission is to ensure family pets are loved, cared for and completely comfortable while their owners are away.

I’m thrilled to provide pet owners with the ease of mind that their four-legged family members are in the best hands while they're away. At City of Paws Pet Care, you’ll get to know my team and I personally. We want to build a personal connection with you and your pets and love them as if they were our own. Thank you for considering City of Paws Pet Care for your pet care needs. I look forward to speaking with you about how we can help!

Sincerely, 

Danny Offenbacher, Founder


Meet Our Team

Chelsea Andreoni, Pet Sitter My name is Chelsea and I’m a Pet Sitter at City of Paws Pet Care!  I was born and raised in Manayunk but spent a few years in Los Angeles where I worked for another pet sitting company as well as an emergency animal hospital.  I have always loved animals and grew up surrounded by them which is probably why I now have five of my own! I have three cats, a rescued 14 year old chihuahua mix, and I recently just acquired a bearded dragon. I love working for City of Paws Pet Care because I love being able to care for and connect with animals every day!

Alec Jachwak, Pet Sitter My name is Alec and I'm the newest addition to the City of Paws Team! I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and currently work in Account Management at a technology company in East Falls. When I'm not at my job, or with friends, there's a good chance I'm hanging out with my vizsla, Zeke (aka Zeke Peeps). Being around this loyal and sensitive breed made me love and appreciate animals as unique beings with unique personalities. In addition to growing up around some great dogs, I've also been able to work with animals as a volunteer at the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown where I learned about some awesome species from all around the world! I'm looking forward to meeting and caring for your pets!
