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 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!

My dogsitter cancelled last minute and I was committed to lead an overnight tour so I was desperate to find someone I could trust to look after my boxer/bulldog Cherry. When I googled dogsitter and Pawshake came up, I performed a search and was immediately impressed with Shannon’s description! Seeing that she is a teacher, I knew Shannon could probably handle anything. What impressed me even more with Shannon’s description is the fact that she has a wide exposure to various types of animals and her statement: “I worked as a stable hand and have experience grooming and training horses and mucking out stalls. Nothing grosses me out any more”. This also meant to me, that she could handle anything my dog Cherry might put her through! Upon our initial Meet & Greet, I knew for certain that I was 100% comfortable with handing over the keys and the responsibility of looking after Cherry, especially since I could tell that Cherry was completely at ease in Shannon’s presence. Shannon provided me with total peace of mind while I was away, and I will definitely book Shannon’s pet services in the future.

We are super happy having found Shannon for a fairly last minute booking to take care of our cat while we were out of town for 4 nights. We loved the daily pictures and communication. We’d absolutely consider booking Shannon again for our next overnight trip!

I’m a high school teacher and with that comes an inherent clear criminal record check.
