Pawprints Boutique | Dog and Cat Food, Treats, Toys, Supplies and Gifts Charlottesville VA

Pet Store in Charlottesville, VA

Pawprints Boutique

Pawprints Boutique is a locally-owned, pet supply store and boutique located on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, VA. We offer premium pet food, treats, toys, gifts and apparel for you and your fur baby. We started as a vendor on the Downtown Mall in 2016. We were able to connect with the community but realized we wanted a store front where people could shop with their pets and tell the latest pet stories. In 2017 we opened our pet shop and love our location at Central Place on the Downtown Mall. We host the annual Doggie Howloween treat-or-treat and costume contest which benefits a different local charity each year.

Carol Metcalf

Carol was born and raised in Charlottesville . She enjoys going to the movies with her husband, going on walks on the trails around Charlottesville , and taking naps! She has a 4-year-old tabby named Paws. He is spoiled rotten and has the funniest personality! He likes going in car rides and sometimes thinks he’s a dog!

Julia Rod

Julia, a Charlottesville native, is our newest worker. She is currently studying psychology and criminology at the University of Lynchburg with thoughts to pursue art therapy. She is a part of the Tri Sigma sorority and a student leader with Hillel. She loves learning about dogs and cats and having a job where she gets to interact with animals! She doesn’t currently have any pets of her own but she is an unofficial auntie to many of her friends’ furry kids. She is looking forward to getting a cat and/or dog of her own (but probably not until she’s fully on her own!).
