Windermere resident Tara Sobek has opened her own mobile pet care business, Woofie's West Orlando.
The business is open to provide services throughout West Orlando, including in Killarney, Kissimmee, Oakland, Ocoee, Orlando, Windermere and Winter Garden.
Woofie's provides a convenient, dependable mobile grooming spa for baths, ear cleaning, nail trims and teeth brushing, as well as services such as dog walking, daytime and overnight pet sitting, and specialty services to help keep area pets (including dogs, cats, reptiles, guinea pigs and birds) healthy, happy and safe.
The pet care business will host a grand opening event in the near future.
The event will include free drawings for a grooming valued at $100 and a pet gift basket, as well as discounted nail trims for dogs on a first come, first served basis.
Woofie’s will be joined by Southern Cross Service Dogs, a nonprofit that trains and provides service dogs for disabled veterans; Unleashed Rehab Canine Therapy and Wellness, providing physical rehabilitation for dogs after an injury or surgery; and Hot Dog Photography, professional photographers, offering $25 sittings for digital download of photos at the event. Pet Wants will also provide dog treats.
A portion of the proceeds from Woofie’s services during the event will be donated to Southern Cross Service Dogs.
Dogs are required to be leashed at the event.
“We have a deep commitment to this community and to animals. As local owners, we provide personalized service with a hometown feel, and have the advantage of also being part of a national franchise brand with Woofie’s,” Sobek said. “We provide safe, caring services for dog, cat and other pet owners who want someone to take care of their beloved pets in the same manner they would. We look forward to officially introducing Woofie’s West Orlando to the larger community at our grand opening event.”
The franchise is locally owned and operated by Sobek, with the help of her husband, Jeremy, and daughter, Ella, who currently attends college and works at another Woofie’s franchise near her school.
The family owns two “fur babies,” Roman, a mini Australian labradoodle, and Duncan, a Cavachon, who are pictured on the Woofie’s West Orlando mobile van.
