Meet our Paws Dream family!


Lindsey Malouin* Owner/operator

From childhood, my passion for animals has been profound, sparked by experiences with my beloved pets and encounters with stray, neglected animals. This drove me to volunteer at shelters, like the Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island, where I focused on training and socialization to prepare animals for adoption. My commitment deepened through academic pursuits, studying Animal Veterinary Science and completing a dog training program. I continuously educate myself and advocate for animal welfare, supporting rescue groups like the Great Dane Rescue of New England and Dogs & Cats of Antigua. My advocacy extends globally, reflecting my belief that every animal deserves care and compassion, regardless of borders.
