The next generation takes over a Shelton business

Local family-owned pet sitting business Paws & Kisses Pet Sitting will be transitioning to next generation at the end of the year. Current owners Bill and Mandy Oram will be retiring, and handing the business reigns to Jim and Karen Oram.

Karen has been a Paws & Kisses staff member since just after the business opened in 2008, and she is very experienced with aspects of the business. Jim Oram, Karen’s husband, is Bill’s nephew.  He is also very familiar with the business. Over the years, Jim has accompanied Karen to visit and help out with many of the businesses furry clients, and is very popular with them, and their human pet parents.

“We want to assure our clients that we are working hard to ensure a smooth and seamless transition to the next Oram generation,” said Mandy Oram.  “Bill and I will miss all our furry and human clients very much, but know that we are leaving them in the best hands possible.”

“We are looking forward to continuing to provide top-notch pet sitting services to all our clients,” said Jim Oram.  “Karen and I have been a part of the business almost since its inception, and are excited to be moving forward and growing the business into 2016 and beyond.”

Paws and Kisses Pet Sitting Service, LLC provides professional pet sitting, daily walks, and pet taxi services for clients in the lower Fairfield County area.  Licensed, bonded, and insured, Paws and Kisses specializes in the care of dogs, cats and birds.
