Nishita Agarwal, co-founder at Papa Pawsome, said, “The Indian market lacked effective and quality-driven pet hygiene products. Thus began the official journey of Papa Pawsome.

This funding will help Papa Pawsome realise its vision to become the platform for pet parents seeking quality and convenient pet care solutions.”

Ajay Rajgarhia, lead investor said, “Papa Pawsome is a D2C brand that offers natural petcare products which meet the evolving needs of pet parents and they are building a strong community of Fur Mom and Fur Dad. Nishita and Nikita are both great entrepreneurs and are working towards making Papa Pawsome an household name.”
