About Ligonier Paws on Main

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. 

 

April

 April Kinzler, Assistant Store Lady at Paws, is a busy mother of four, local crafter and owner of A.O.K. Accents, a pet home decor and more section in Paws.

When she isn’t running her kids around town you can find her part time behind the counter assisting you with all your pets needs with the help of her son Maddox, aka the store baby. 

Even though she is a newer addition to the staff April has worked behind the scenes for Paws since the beginning. You may have noticed her work on the monthly chalkboard calendar, the displays she creates for the front window, as well as various table displays and fliers. April also puts together the monthly Wag Bag subscriptions and Pet Easter Baskets.  

April loves meeting all the pets that come to see us and helping to make the store a fun and exciting place to visit.  

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.

Duke

As the only boy and the most loveable team member, we knew Duke would be perfect for a position in our Human Resources Department. Not only does he have great interpersonal skills, but he is also always going above and beyond what is asked of him. For example, his compassion for others is vital to job satisfaction and work-related motivation.

Greetings and belly rubs are essential to Duke.  He is an invaluable part of the day to day operations and has made our Paws team complete.
