Paws and Claws has grown into a much larger reality than originally anticipated, thanks to the wonderful reception it has received from pets and their owners in Hudson and the surrounding communities.
Paws and Claws expanded with a second location in Stillwater, MN which opened in 2007. That location was sold to a long time employee in April 2014, wishing her continued success.
