Heather Curatolo is the owner and founder of Paws on Pine, which offers personalized dog walking and pet sitting services to her neighbors in the Financial District, where she’s lived for over a decade.

Heather is an animal-lover (cats and dogs alike!) who decided to create a boutique pet services company while working in advertising sales in corporate America. At the time, she struggled to find reliable, specialized care for her fur babies, Doxy and Bebop, and decided that she wanted to be around animals full-time.  

Heather is an active volunteer in the pet community with respected animal charities such as Rock & Rawhide, where she won volunteer of the year. She’s been asked to speak about animals and her mission at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Peck Slip School and other well-known New York City organizations. 

Outside of Paws on Pine, Heather likes to travel and watch episodes of “Man v. Food.” She’s a native New Yorker and is currently owned by a French Bulldog named Tristan.
