About WoofPack Pet Care
History of WoofPack
WoofPack Pet Care was founded in Raleigh in 2009 by Melissa Anzalone. Always having a passion for pets, Melissa turned that passion into a business! Melissa grew WoofPack over the years throughout the Raleigh area. Looking to make the next move in her career, an opportunity was presented to her to pursue her dream job. Following that pursuit of her dream job, Melissa made the tough decision to sell WoofPack in 2018 to Paul Maskill.

Hey! It’s Paul and I’m excited to be the new owner of WoofPack Pet Care! You’ll also see my wife, Angela and daughter, Emilia in the picture as well.
I took over WoofPack from Melissa in January 2018. Originally from Michigan, I graduated with a finance degree with grand plans of climbing the corporate ladder for the next 40 years. After three years into the climb, I was ready to escape. With a passion for business and serving people, I started, owned and operated a very successful junior golf and youth tennis business for almost five years before selling it at the end of 2015.
The next two years were a whirl wind between buying our first house, fixing up said house and having Emilia. Now that Emilia is a little bit older, I was ready to get back into owning a local business and I loved what WoofPack was all about. Although no pets at the moment, Emilia is obsessed with dogs so I’m sure we’ll have one sooner rather than later 🙂
Meredith has dedicated her life to helping others by volunteering and advocating for several causes. Meredith has been active as a construction volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in the Durham area since March 2013.
In 2014, she became involved with the Raleigh Rescue Mission, which ministers to homeless men, women, and children by providing necessary resources. She has contributed her time since 2014 to Loaves and Fishes Ministries by serving as an extended family for at-risk children through individualized support in an after school program. Additionally, since 2014, Meredith has participated with the Coalition to Unchain Dogs, an animal advocacy organization dedicated to building fences for chained dogs and informing communities of its detrimental effects on dogs.
Meredith believes her calling is to help & serve others (humans and pets!). Her love & passion of caring for pets makes her a fan favorite among WoofPack clients. Our recent testimonials make it clear!
