about us

Throw Me A Bone is a personalized, in-home pet care service designed for working and traveling pet owners. From walks and training to grooming and overnight care (and more!), we do it all—right in the comfort of your pet’s apartment.

Our Story

Just like you, we consider our pets family and would do anything for them. In fact, a shared love for dogs is what propelled our founders, Mike and Adam, to leave behind their Wall Street careers to launch Throw Me A Bone.

It all started in 2008 when the financial world fell into crisis, and Mike and Adam began plotting their next move. At the same time, Mike’s papillon Theo was placed on a months-long waiting list at his  local doggy daycare. Mike and Adam (the proud owner of a Toy Aussie Shepherd named Lilly), knew there had to be a better way to meet the demand for high quality pet care. They put their heads together and Throw Me A Bone was born.

Today we’re a team of 35 (and growing!) animal lovers dedicated to providing reliable, convenient and easily accessible (read: no long waiting lists) pet care to the New York City community.

Our Values

We know how hard it is to leave your pet in another’s care. That’s why we built our company on a foundation of trust and honesty, above all else. This begins with our team.

We carefully vet each of our team members with thorough background checks, require at least one year of prior pet care experience, and complete a thorough training process along with bi-annual continuing education. Your furry friend will always get his or her own dedicated specialist, as we believe consistency is crucial to a pet’s well being.  

Your peace of mind is our top priority, and that’s reflected in the quality of our customer service, our rigorous hiring practices and flexible scheduling—not to mention our sincere desire to shower your pet with unconditional love. Because they deserve it!
