Local Pet Care Services Company is Eyeing the Grand Prize

Woofie’s, a leading pet care services company based in Ashburn, is one paw closer to the goal line! From almost 15,000 entries, Intuit Inc. has selected Woofie’s and 19 other small businesses to stay in the game and play for the ultimate prize – a 30-second custom television advertisement featuring their company that will air during football’s biggest game on Feb. 2, 2014.

In the initial rounds of the competition, Woofie’s owners Leslie Barron and Amy Reed told their business story, rallied their fans on Facebook and shared their passion for why they deserve the opportunity of a lifetime. Their efforts paid off as they now move to the final rounds of the competition.

What began eight years ago as a pet sitting and dog walking business with just the two Ashburn neighbors has grown into a thriving, full-service pet care company in the Loudoun County area. Loyal clients trust in and rely on Woofie’s to care for their beloved pets in their absence; they provide pet sitting visits, overnight care, mid-day dog walking visits and pet taxi services seven days a week for almost 3000 clients in the Ashburn and Lansdowne area. In 2011, they added Mobile Pet Spa services to their offering and now have three state-of-the-art luxury mobile pet spa vans operating seven days a week.

Woofie’s is a member of the Northern Virginia Professional Pet Sitter’s Network (NVPPN), a local professional pet care network with over 40 member companies whose owners are committed to excellence in professional pet sitting, community outreach and involvement. Woofie’s is also a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) and Pet Sitters International (PSI).

Woofie’s reputation for professionalism, reliability and personalized customer care earned them the awards of Best Groomers in 2013 and Best Pet Care Company in 2011 from Northern Virginia Magazine and Washingtonian Magazine included them on their Best Pet Care List in 2011 and 2013. Woofie’s has been featured on NBC News 4 and Fox 5 News and they were recently recognized as the Best Services Company in the Best of Loudoun Local 2013.

“Woofie’s is honored and excited to be included in the excellent company of the other semi-finalists and we thank Intuit for the opportunity they are affording a small business like Woofie’s to promote our business on a national level,” said Barron. “It truly is an opportunity of a lifetime!”

This week Intuit’s 8,000 employees will view all 20 semi-finalists’ submissions and vote on their favorite small business that they believe best represents Intuit. These votes will determine the final four, who will be announced on Nov. 11. The world will then vote online on the Small Business Big Game website (http://www.smallbusinessbiggame.com) through Dec. 1 to select the ultimate winner.
