Jennifer has a huge love for animals and grew up surrounded by everything from dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, chipmunks, snakes, ferrets, reptiles, hermit crabs and fish.

She is looking forward to spoiling your pets and giving them extra love and attention.

Molly's love for animals started at an early age. Born into a house with several cats, they have always had at least one companion, from the always present cats, to a pair of cockatiels, to the occasional fish tank. Currently, their bearded dragon, Shiro, and russian tortoise, Aveline, coexist with three cats: a toothless tabby named Freddie; Snuffy, a russian blue who loves to go walkies outside; and the youngest, a little black kitten from the woods named Jiji. Born and raised in Germantown, Molly spent time in Reno, Nevada, but recently came home to go back to school. Traveling by car across the country not once but twice with their pets, Molly knows full well that the animals you let into your life are family and looks forward to treating your furry babies the very same way!

Aliisa is fond of animals of all kinds! She grew up in the southwestern part of Virginia but has been in MoCo for several years after graduating college (Shenandoah University). Growing up, her cousins had a farm and that was one of her favorite memories and things to do, to go on the farm and be with all the animals there. Although she's never technically owned a dog, she has fostered both dogs and cats. Her pets growing up consisted mostly of rodents; a hamster, chinchilla, and bunny (not all simultaneously), and even a reptile - a baby turtle she found in the yard one day. She has been involved with others' pets and pet care for almost a decade now! With Aliisa's experience she is a great addition for your day-to-day pet care and she looks forward to meeting your pets soon!!
