Aimee Alvarez, Co-Founder

What makes your business unique? 

At Fit & Go Pets we are the ultimate destination for holistic pet care. We pride ourselves on providing the best pet care services in our facility near Wynwood, resulting in active, happy pups and satisfied owners. Choose from half and full day daycare, boarding, pick-up and drop-off, dental cleanings, DOGOshoots, among so many other services.

At the heart of our approach is our Abuela, Mayrena, co-founder of Fit & Go Pets. Her unwavering care and unapologetic compassion for animals drives our business and embodies our team’s spirit. She welcomes each and every pup to Abuela’s House while their pawrents are away, for the day or for the week.

What’s the one advice you would give pet owners?
The number one advice I’d give to parent owners is to think before you pawrent, owning a pet is a huge responsibility. Pets have unique needs and if you aren’t ready nor prepared for the responsibility, your pet will likely end up suffering. But once you are ready and decide to find that special pet to come into your life, you’ll receive in return endless love and companionship.
