Paul Bates

Pet Care Specialist
Paul Bates is a talented visionary, an artist with a passion for animals. He started his first business at the age of 16 repairing computers after school. Graduating from Mountain Home High School in 1997, he immediately moved to Kansas City to attend DeVry University for Telecommunications Management and then Ottawa University for Business Management. After working in the corporate world for 13 years as an IT Analyst, he wanted a drastic change from the 9 to 5 office environment and decided to move back to Little Rock in 2010.
Once established in Little Rock Paul reinvented himself and became an Event Planner and the Director of Arkansas Destinations, Arkansas Trolley Company. After a 4 year venture, he saw his life needing a change from the rat race of the transportation and event planning industry and Paul ended his tenure with Arkansas Destinations, Inc. In May of 2014 he joined team Rockin’ Paws!
