About Me

Christmas Day with pups.jpg

Hi! I'm Karen and animals are my passion! Growing up I had always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. I wanted to save all animals, big or small, furry or slimy, winged or feathered! Nothing was off-limits! I could never bring myself to kill spiders and insects, and would gently release them outside when they were trapped in the house.


Throughout my childhood, I have owned cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, chinchillas, rats, and lizards! Most of which were rescues.


After working in both the Medical Field and Corporate Services and not gaining fulfillment, I finally decided to open my own pet services business to live my dream and do what I am passionate about and that is working with and alongside animals.

I am an animal cruelty advocate and a volunteer for several local rescues. I continue to further my education in animal behavior and training. I currently own 3 rescue dogs, along with 7 guinea pigs, and a rat.


Caring for animals in any way gives me satisfaction and fulfillment making the goal that I had always longed to reach, possible! I am truly grateful to do what I love and love what I do. Animals bring out the best in me and I could not imagine the world without them!
