MARBLEHEAD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — In Marblehead, you might see more than kids riding the school bus... thanks to one local furry friend chauffeur service.
CC Paws, also known as Creature Comforts, is a family-owned doggy daycare center that provides bus services to bring your pets where they need to go. The transportation service picks up dogs at their homes, brings them on their doggy errands, and then brings them back home.
"Our "Creature Concierge" will take your pet anywhere they need to go. Whether it’s to the groomer, trainer, veterinarian, or even with their overnight bag to an out-of-town kennel. For your convenience, we will also do errands for you like: picking up pet food, litter or medications," CC Paws said on their website.
"It's really cute to see them all anxiously ready to run onto the bus," Erin McCarthy, owner of CC Paws, told WBZ's Brooke McCarthy.
There are five buses that pick up dozens of dogs every day. CC Paws uses transformed elderly transport buses and decommissioned school buses to transport dogs around Marblehead and Swampscott.
"They kind of all figured out themselves, they each have their own seat they go on, they get clipped in, they like to have their little seat made," McCarthy said. "I mean it's just like kids going on a field trip in school."
CC Paws offers transportation in addition to walking, daycare, and in-home pet-sitting services.
