Pet Gal Kona

team member

Hi my name is Suzanne and I’m super excited to be part of the Pet Gal team! After over 30 years I was finally able to retire from my rewarding career as a school counselor and I am looking forward to being able to work in the pet industry, a true passion of mine!

I spent most of my life in Utah, both the Wasatch front under the shadow of those glorious mountains as well as southern Utah right next door to all the magnificent National parks. But no matter where I lived I have been joyfully owned by one or more dogs! Five months ago my husband and I moved to Kona on the big island of Hawaii. We successfully brought our three dogs with us and are enjoying finding all the walking trails and dog beaches we can on this beautiful island.

I have been a dog lover ever since I was a teen and my dad finally agreed to bring a dog into our lives. Once I experienced the love and joy that comes from looking into those big eyes and watch that wagging tail go crazy just because I walked into the room, I was hooked for life! I’ve owned dogs for almost fifty years now and I plan to never stop. I love pets if all kinds having spent the first 14 years of my life with cats as my best friends, I’ve also had several different kinds of birds, reptiles, a horse and even kept a goldfish alive in a bowl for over five years!

I know how much anxiety I have when leaving my pets while at work and especially while on a trip, so I’m excited to be able to help love and care for your fur babies while you are away, hoping to give you the peace of mind that all is well at home with your sweethearts.

I can’t wait to make your pets my new friends!
