We’ve hired a new dog walker in Maple Grove, MN! We’re pleased to welcome Sarah to the team. You can read more about her in her own words here:
Hi, I’m Sarah! I live in Plymouth and I currently have three cats and two bearded dragons. All of my cats are rescues, and they all have physical disabilities or medical issues. Niles has cerebellar hypoplasia (wobbly cat syndrome) and pica, Curry has urinary issues, and Joni recently had a leg amputation. Together they are a handful, but I wouldn’t trade them for anything! I was born on the east coast, and moved to Plymouth during middle school. My family has been fostering and training service dogs for Guiding Eyes for the Blind and Can Do Canines for the past 20 years. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a double major in wildlife ecology and biology. I took a course in Canine Psychology and coordinated a club program to help students volunteer at the local humane society. In the past I have worked at PetSmart as a Pet Care Specialist, where I learned the best care practices for all pets from fish to birds, geckos to guinea pigs. Following that, I worked at Animal Humane Society as an Adoption Specialist and as a Transport Driver, where I had an opportunity to drive across the country to save animals from overcrowded shelters. I have handled cats and dogs of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments, and became an expert in reading dog and cat body language! My passion for animals encompasses every aspect of my life, and I became a vegetarian in 2010 to support animal rights. In my free time I enjoy reading, yoga, camping, and backpacking. I am so lucky to be able to spend time with your pets and call it a job!
