In 2008, founders Mike and Adam—fresh off Wall Street—launched Throw Me A Bone with the idea of creating a more personalized, convenient and accessible pet-care service in New York City. What began as a small but thriving dog-walking business on the Upper East Side quickly became a 10-person operation within two years. By 2011, Throw Me A Bone expanded beyond dog walking to offer pet sitting (for cats, too!), grooming and dog training, providing in-home services across much of Manhattan. In 2017, we opened our first full-service pet care facility in Midtown West complete with a pet spa, playroom, and dog run. Today, we’re operating 7 facility locations with a team of over 35 dedicated Pet Care Specialists who provide over 200 services a day across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. High quality, comprehensive pet care has never been more accessible, and we're proud to be a leader in enhancing the lives of New York City's pets.
To enrich the lives of each and every pet in our care while delivering value, convenience, and peace of mind to their owners.
