I am a high school English teacher and passionate animal-loving Vegan. I currently rent a condo where I am not allowed to have any pets. I have summer, winter and spring break time off work in which I especially crave play time with furry little buddies.
I grew up with pets from a very young age, and not just cats and dogs! I have been a proud mom to hamsters, guinea pigs and rats, as well as an auntie to a few lizards. In my teens, I earned my horseback riding lessons by working as a stablehand, including grooming, training, and mucking our stalls; so you can rest assured that your pets’ bathroom messes won’t phase me. As a lifelong lover of all animals, I can promise you affectionate, doting care for your little family members while you are out of town. I would be especially excited to care for your hedgehogs, rabbits and pigs- all animals I adore but have never had as part of my family. I am also very comfortable with the idea of caring for more... unconventional friends, such as birds, snakes and other reptiles. I don’t have as much personal experience with this, but I love all kinds of animals and I follow instructions well. However, please note that due to my Vegan beliefs I am not comfortable feeding live animals to your pets.
I will come to your home and ensure your pets have everything they need to be safe and comfortable, plus ample play and cuddle time. I will also stay in your home to care for pets who need more regular medical care. I’m comfortable giving prescribed medications to pets - lots of experience with this with my own fur babies in the past!
You can be certain that I will leave your home safe and tidy, and that I will respect your privacy. I’m happy to work with all kinds of families and individuals - I just want to love your pets!
This is the first time we tried this service.
We met with Shannon prior and felt very comfortable to leave our home and kitties in her care.
She kept their food topped up, the litter fresh, and sent me updates on how our pets were doing.
And, made quick friends with one of my kitties.
We are very happy with this service and Shannon's care, and would definitely recommend Shannon and this service to others.
Great as always! Cats miss her already! I recommend her without hesitation, Shannon is awesome!
I’m a high school teacher and with that comes an inherent clear criminal record check.
In my teens, I worked as a stable hand and have experience grooming and training horses and mucking out stalls. Nothing grosses me out any more!
I have also had lots of practice giving prescribed medications to hamsters, cats, and dogs.
