About UsHi! Welcome to Pittsburgh Paws Pet Resort!
Hi! Welcome to Pittsburgh Paws Pet Resort!
My name is Brody. My mom owns and operates Pittsburgh Paws Pet Resort, which has been a dream of hers for a while! While she would work during the day, she had to leave me at home all day by myself. I was bored, and filled my time by chewing up some of her favorite things. By the time she would get home from work, I was bursting with energy and ready to play but she was always exhausted from a full day of work. She wanted a place where she could take me during the day to be played with, make other dog friends, and be completely pampered. She could not find the perfect place, so she built it – – And believe me, this is the perfect place for dogs with busy families!
At Pittsburgh Paws Pet Resort, our mission is to treat each and every dog as if it were our own furry kid. We are all extreme pet enthusiasts, and our goal is to give our clients peace of mind knowing their four-legged friends will be given the highest level of care. We continuously strive to create a fun, comfortable, and unique place for pups to enjoy within a safe and clean environment.
Meet our owners!

After working in the corporate scene for several years, she decided to marry her business background and passion for animals to create her own career path. For the past couple years, she had flirted with leaving her profession to pursue this opportunity, and in 2013, that door of opportunity opened for her.

Her vision of the perfect pet resort has come to life in the build-out of Pittsburgh Paws!

Marisa is a Sarver native and a 2006 graduate of Freeport Area High School. After high school, she attended St. Margaret’s School of Nursing where she obtained her Nursing License and practiced for 8 years before deciding to switch careers. In 2017, her sisten Jen, presented her the opportunity to become the General Manager of Pittsburgh Paws Pet Resort Natrona Heights. Leaving nursing was a tough decision to make but working with animals was much more appealing.
Marisa accepted the position and immediately knew that working with animals was what really made her heart happy. In 2022, Marisa purchased Pittsburgh Paws Pet Resort Natrona Heights from her sister and is now the Owner/Operator.
