About Us

Hank was a Kelpie x Staffy who was rescued in 2012 from the fabulous Dogs’ Refuge Home in Shenton Park. Laura knew he was the man for her the minute they met!

Back when Laura was working corporate, it pained her every day leaving her Hank behind. All she wanted to do was hang out with her best mate 24/7 and decided to go and find a solution so she could!!!

After over 12 months of research, study, negotiations, tears, laughter and lots of learnings, she left the office to pursue her dream with her partner in crime by her side! 

In 2017, Laura added another man into her life named Dutch who is a Koolie x Kelpie. Dutch was rescued from “Herd to Home Rescue” over on the east coast but doggy daycare is not for him. Doggy daycare is not for every dog and that is perfectly ok!

Unfortunately, Laura lost her boy Hank in February 2021 but thanks to Hank, his legacy lives on through PawPals every day and we also have “Hanks House Organisation” set up in his memory.  


Assisting rescues has been a massive goal for Laura since the beginning of PawPals back in 2014.

“Hanks House” organisation has been set up in Hank’s honour and each week our clients donate an extra $1 with their debit and then at the end of every month we collate all those $1 and donate to different rescue organisations.

Laura has a degree in Advertising and Media, a Certificate in Canine Behavior and a Certificate in Canine First Aid. It is Laura’s aim to ensure your dog has a fantastic day out in a safe and fun environment, playing with their friends and surrounded by people who adore what they do.
