My Pet Care Story

As a child I always had animals in my life, from our own pet cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, hamsters, fish, ferrets, mice and reptiles, to spending time on my grandma's farm with the goats, ducks, and chickens. I also rescued a few animals as a child and later in life did years of volunteer work with a cat rescue organization and a wildlife rehabilitation and education center. During that time I worked part time at a pet hotel and was inspired to start my own small pet care business. In 2010, I got certified through NAPPS (National Association of Professional Pet Sitters) and started my business in PA. There, I got the opportunity to care for not only cats and dogs, but chickens, ducks, horses, goats, and various other "pets". I spent three years volunteering with the wildlife rehabilitation center, where I fed baby birds, squirrels, fawns, opossums, beavers and got rabies vaccinated, so I could feed/handle the vector species (raccoons, skunks, groundhogs, and fox). During that time I also completed a Veterinary Assistant Diploma program. In 2015, I got an AA Liberal Studies degree with a concentration in Environmental Science. In 2017 I moved with my family to the Cleveland, Ohio area and continued my pet care business.
