Hello to all my Pet Moms and Pet Dads, my name is Shelly.
I’m a proud owner of three dogs I have a 10 pound little Snorkie named Shadow, a Pugalier name Crumpet and an Eurasier named Nanook. All my dogs have been found and rescued. My dog Crumpet only had the ability to walk on three legs and now after prayer, several surgeries, and rehab at home, he now walks and runs on all four legs.
For as long as I can remember I have always had a very strong connection to animals. I have loved, cared for, and nurtured animals my whole life. It sometimes feels serendipitous how animals in need seem to find their way to me. I have lost count of how many times I’ve come across an animal that needed my help in some way. My deep love for all animals has led me to work with them in different ways throughout my life.
Before I joined The Pet Gal, I had other jobs. Even though I worked in Wellness for 20 years, my passion has always been animals. I decided to start doing my passion so I became an outpatient vet tech. I also boarded, house sat and pet sat for a couple of my patients I met at the hospital. I enjoyed pet sitting so much I joined The Pet Gal. They are such a great company to work for. I am happy to have found them, because I can do the work I love so very much. I am a very kind, patient, and a loving spirit that will diligently watch over and care for your adorable loved ones while you are away. Building a strong and trustworthy relationship with you and your loving pet is my goal! Rest assured, your wonderful pets are in good hands and I will be looking forward to meeting you and your babies very soon.
