Pet Gal South Austin

team member

Howdy! My name is Erika. I am an animal lover, a bookworm, and a born-and-bred Texan. I have lived all over the Lone Star State and even went to Colorado for a while, but I decided to come back, settle down and raise my family in our beautiful capital. I have a 5-year-old little girl (human) and a 10-year-old dog named Cash (Johnny Cash, of course!). I have raised and trained many dogs of all breeds and sizes, a couple of cats, and a rabbit – and have helped take care of an extended family of lizards, snakes, birds, rats, and even some cows and horses. I have a special place in my heart for every living thing – I am a lover of frogs and a fervent protector of spiders.

When I’m not looking after your precious fur-babies, I spend my free time reading, going to school to be an English teacher, and swimming with my daughter and our dog in the creeks around Austin. I have always had a passion for nurturing and bonding with people and animals, which is why the Pet Gal is the perfect place for me to help you take care of your fur family with the same love and care that you do – the same love and care that I give to my own family.
