Pet Gal South Austin

team member

Hi, my name is Sara and I’m so happy to be a part of the Pet Gal team! For the last five years I was working in New York at a desk job and decided that lifestyle was just not for me; it left me feeling trapped and unfulfilled. I decided to escape the grind of Manhattan and move to Austin for a better quality of life; I just love that Austin has so much beautiful nature, friendly people, and that it’s extremely pet friendly! In doing the move I wanted to switch career paths and follow my passion which is caring for pets. Aside from growing up with pets and having my own, I’ve volunteered in animal shelters for about fifteen years, fostered young kittens and had always helped friends and family with pet sitting. I began thinking to myself, why does pet care have to just be a hobby when I could do what I love on a full time basis? I’m so thrilled that I was able to make my dream a reality by joining the Pet Gal team, and I can’t wait to have the opportunity to meet your furry friends/beloved family members and provide them with the same quality care I’d want my own pets to receive!
