Meet the Team!

Angel

HI! My name is Angel, I am the owner of Paws On Main.  

As a Stay at Home Mom for the past 25 years, I had the time to raise my three children and discover what I wanted to be when I grew up. A Cruise Director….HAHA I mean we all could wish, right?   It did include four of my favorite things. Ocean, travel, boats and overseeing the entertainment and other activities on board. But….reality set in & I had to bring my head out of the clouds. I would miss my pets.  

Then I was approached about this storefront in Ligonier on Main Street. The day I first walked onto the porch and into the store, I immediately saw my vision, because of my past experience.   See, my story started 40 years ago when I had my own small business in high school on our Texas farm. To this day, that experience stuck with me. Always having to care for animals, business, entertaining and the mindset to make a difference and give back. It made the decision to open Paws on Main Street, easy. 

I wanted something different, unique and out of the box fun.  I wanted to be the candy store on the corner, but for “pets”. I offer a bakery (barkery) with seasonal, healthy and fun treats for dogs and cats.  A boutique with the quality, selective products for our beloved furry friends while providing EXCEPTIONAL customer satisfaction.  I invite you to feel the ultimate shopping experience for pets and their owners. I strive to make Paws fun and positive especially through our events and visiting us. Paws will always promote the bond between people and their pets, through fashion, food, and fun.  

I have big plans for Paws and look forward to sharing the experience with you every step of the way.    

Hope to see you soon!

April

April Kinlzer is Angel’s right-hand woman. She’s been helping at Paws since the very beginning, desiging window displays, updating the website, and keeping up with inventory. She’s also the owner of AOK accents, a local home decor supplier. 

A mother of four and a Ligonier local, you can find April behind the counter at Paws when she isn’t shuttling her family to youth sports and other community events. She also has two cats, Luke Skywalker and Bacon.

Aspen

With Aspen, presentation is everything.  This is just one of the qualities that make her a priceless asset to the team.  As the Barkey Operations Manager, Aspen often finds it necessary for all of us here at Paws to provide good reasoning for any requests made to her. In order to ensure the right decision is being made, she is diligent with weighing the risks and rewards of every situation.

She won’t just come to you, sit or stay without good reason. Aspen holds all of us to a very high standard. Be confident in knowing that with Aspen as our top taste tester, if it doesn’t meet her approval it doesn’t make the cut to the barkery floor.

Maddox aka Store Baby

Every store needs a greeter and toy tester like Maddox the store baby. Maddox Kinzler is 19 months (as of September, 2022), and joins his mother when she works behind the counter. He loves dogs just like all our customers, as well as his two cats Luke Skywalker and Bacon.
