I have always loved animals. My parents had a feed store that later turned into a garden supply store and landscaping company. My parents loved animals and growing things, and they passed that love onto me. We had a small family farm with many different critters. We had several dogs of all sizes, many cats, ferrets, exotic birds, chickens, horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, bees, and of course a huge garden. I have always had at least one fur baby my entire life. I could not live without them.
I have been helping out people with their pets for years. It got to where I was getting busier and busier just through word of mouth. It dawned on me one day that I could do this full time! I then decided to take the plunge, and make a real business out of it. This was several years ago, and I am so happy that I did! I wish I had realized this was possible years ago. That my dream job was right there in front of me all the time!
I love caring for pets, and I love how much it helps the owners too. I become attached to these cuties like I'm their favorite auntie. It has to be the best feeling in the world! This isn't a job for me. It's a way of life. It's a way to help animals live better lives, and help owners feel better about having to leave their fur babies sometimes.
