Our Story

Throw Me A Bone was born from a mission to change the landscape of NYC pet care, providing dogs and their family with more personalized, convenient, and reliable options.

Since 2008, we’ve continued to build a comprehensive offering of premium daycare, grooming, boarding, and training services that have never been more accessible in Midtown West, Hudson Yards & Downtown Brooklyn.

Our Mission

To enrich the lives of each and every pet in our care while delivering peace of mind and convenience to their parents.

Our Guiding Principles

Be the best while doing our best, both in our personal lives and as a team.

The foundation of trust and the fabric of all meaningful relationships – not only with our clients and the pets who rely on us; but also with our team, who we rely on every day.

For what we do, and the pets we do it for – otherwise why do it?

How we welcome others into our family – with open arms, courtesy, kindness and a sense of belonging.

Our Team

We come from many walks of life but share a common love for all pets. Meet the people who help make it happen.
