Especially for Pets, a Massachusetts pet food and supply company with stores located in Acton, Medway, Newton, Sudbury, Wayland and Westborough is proud to announce Pamela Rogers as the 2008 Employee of the Year.


Pamela Rogers, a longtime resident of Bellingham, has been committed to Especially for Pets’ mission and its customers ever since she was hired almost two years ago to work in the Medway location. Pam received this award of excellence for several reasons including her exemplary dedication, self-motivation, and ability to consistently exceed customer service expectations.

Lisa Hayes, Especially for Pets store manager of Medway said “Pam demonstrates much compassion for both customers and their pets, assisting in making recommendations for their best care in regard to food, treats, toys and training. Pam makes customers feel welcomed by remembering both their names and their pets and offers personalized attention. She is enthusiastic in all she does, from routine re-stocking and merchandising and welcomes any task with her infectious smile and sense of humor.”

Pam’s previous experience was as a volunteer, then a paid employee, and then assistant manager for close to half of her ten year association with Baypath Humane Society in Hopkinton. Pam assisted in kennel management including feeding, cleaning, training, medicals and adoptions. She also fostered and hand raised countless kittens, cats, and puppies. She has many "failed fosters" at home, including a few that were deemed un-adoptable due to health or behavior concerns.

“Because of Pam’s experience at Baypath Humane Society, she has an incredible knowledge of animal care and training and has fostered many kittens and puppies. Her knowledge coupled with great customer service skills make Pam an outstanding recipient of the Employee of the year Award,” said Michael DiTullio, president and owner of Especially for Pets. “It gives me great pleasure to recognize Pam’s achievements.”
