I work out of my home and give any pets the same care I would want my own pets to have.
-Basic fish/reptile care out of your home
I've worked with hundreds of animals my whole life, but only recently have decided that I'd love to do it through my own business. My experience includes through rescue/rehabilitation of both domestic and exotic animals, as a veterinary assistant, through volunteer work, and through years of experience growing up in a home full of a variety of animals.
I enjoy being able to make the animals, and their owners, happy. I enjoy caring for others, and what better way to do so than to care for pets?

I got started in this business looking to make some side cash to cover expenses for my own pets after one of my own begin needing expensive allergy medications and food that was higher cost than what I could normally afford. I loved doing it and decided I wanted to do it more.
I have worked with a variety of customers, some people bring me rescues to groom for adoption pictures, some people bring me their expensive rare purebreeds to board for multiple nights. Some people just ask that I drop in and feed their fish/cat/check that their snakes are doing okay.
I enjoy every part of what I do.
A recent event I am fond of is having a stray dog brought to me for grooming. She was severely matted and obviously having not been properly cared for in some time, if at all. And while I couldn't save all her fur, or brush it out much, how happy she seemed to be when she was able to freely move without the pain of matted fur pulling all over her body. She quickly became a lot more puppylike and would happily prance around compared to the terrified shell she was when brought to me.
