Hot Paws

From your home to ours

Founded in 2010 by multi-national Octavio Martinez, Hot Paws exemplifies the best in grooming practices, boarding, daycare services, behavioral training and transportation of your beloved four-footed family member. At Hot Paws we try to replicate your home environment within out walls. Our staff is professionally trained in grooming and caring for cats, dogs, pigs, birds and hamsters.

When Octavio and his father came to Amelia Island they quickly realized the need for a family style boarding and grooming facility. As an international exhibitor of champion Miniature Schnauzers, Mr. Martinez encouraged his son to establish a quality facility based on the concept of family. Every beloved pet is considered a member of the family. Hot Paws is an extension of your family. The warmth that flows from the staff is genuine; they have pets as well. Just as you feel comfortable dropping children off for a weekend with their cousins, that is the sense that is replicated on eighth street.
