Perfect Pets offers more to keep animals happy, healthy

FOREST HILLS — After six years of providing pet sitting and dog walking services to the Forest Hills and greater Carrollwood area, Perfect Pets has expanded its offerings.

Earlier this month, it opened a new doggy day care, grooming salon and pet retail boutique.

"You can come to Perfect Pets with any pet care need and we have a service to fulfill it," said co-owner Shelley Hamilton.

Hamilton, along with her husband and co-owner Greg Hamilton and their team of pet care specialists, care for more than 300 clients.

"Many homes are multi-pet households. They have two different needs — cats and dogs," Shelley Hamilton said. "We're able to fulfill all the needs of the pet owner with full service pet care."

Their team of pet care specialists is bonded, insured and pet certified in CPR/first aid.

At the new state-of-the-art facility, Perfect Pets Doggy Day Care provides structured, supervised pack play with experienced pet care specialists. The indoor and outdoor playgrounds are allergen-free and are designed for safety, security, comfort and balance.

"Socialization is a key to a balanced dog," Shelley Hamilton said.

During their recent grand opening event, Perfect Paws raised more than $500 for local animal rescue groups.

Perfect Pets is located at 2305 W Linebaugh Ave. For more information, call (813) 508-0808, or visit callperfectpets.com.

TEMPLE TERRACE — A restaurant and bar specializing in Asian fusion cuisine recently re-opened with a new owner.

Sake2Me, located near the University of South Florida, caters to students, professionals, and families.

"We are very excited to open and are featuring a new menu," said Stephen Lee, owner. "Our goal is to be part of the Temple Terrace community for years to come."

Before opening Sake2Me, Lee ran a restaurant in Charlottesville, Va., that serviced University of Virginia students.

"I learned so much from these amazing people, including how to listen to customer desires," Lee said.

Sake2Me's menu of Asian fusion cuisine features items such as edamame, chicken fried rice, spicy pork, seaweed salad, miso ramen, Korean steak burrito and California roll.

There is also a full-service bar.

"My goal is to implement Asian fusion, such as sushi, Japanese ramen and hibachi, that will appeal to all diners," Lee said.
