Meet Our Team


Melanie Whittaker - Owner/Operator

Purr-fect Paws was created in Quesnel in February 2006 before relocating to Kamloops in August 2013. Our goal was to provide a stress-free service and found many pets were happier and healthier staying in their own homes. They also adjust quicker in the absence of their parents. Melanie grew up on a small Island, where she was always surrounds by many different kinds of animals. Over the years, she had a few different positions, which included an ABA therapist for children with autism, a nanny, a retail manager, an executive assistant and an office manager. Now living in Kamloops, she has been able to continue her dream and grow the Purr-fect Paws family. She has 2 amazing children with her husband of 21 years, a 4 year old dog named Rex and a 3 year old cat named Buddy and a 9 month old kitten named Mocha
