About Shannon

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 exotic 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!

Wow, we were lucky to find Shannon - excellent care, daily updates, photos - we came home to happy and calm cats.. they may actually prefer Shannon to us... One senior cat needed meds twice a day and this was no problem. They warmed up to Shannon quickly. Thank you Shannon!

You can really tell that Shannon cares about the animals she's watching and treats them with love, respect, and fun! She sent me updates and even managed to snap a cute picture of one of our cats after he finishes his dinner!

The next time we are headed out of town and need someone to watch our two cats we will definitely be booking Shannon!!!

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.
