Denise DiGangi:  Owner / Dog walker / Pet-sitter

While attending Salve Regina University, I fell in love with the area and decided to call it home.  I began volunteering at the Potter League for Animals in 1998 and soon realized my passion for animals and their well-being.  What began as a hobby of walking dogs at the shelter and for friends, soon became a business idea.  Lucky Paws was born and fifteen years later is a thriving local business thanks to our many loyal clients.   I truly love each and every animal that I work with and feel incredibly lucky to do what I enjoy for a living. I’m honored to be entrusted with the care of so many beloved pets here on Aquidneck Island, and remain committed to providing honest, reliable service to current and future clients. 

 I am always available for any questions you may have and make every attempt to return calls and emails the same day they are received.
