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. Outside of owning German Shepherds, cats, fish and a Doberman through her adult life, Jennifer has volunteered her time caring for friends' pets since a very young age and carried that love for animals through rescue work. In the past several years she has helped find medical care and loving homes for feral cats, Dobermans and German Shepherds. She has experience in working with medically at-risk animals that require extra love, special diets and medication. She currently shares her family home with a 3 year old affectionate and curious ferret named “Stryker” and a goldfish named “Dot” and often cares for friends' dogs when they are away. Outside of pet sitting, Jennifer is a traffic safety manager for a national non-profit organization and enjoys being a mom, running, hiking, and painting (animals of course!). She is looking forward to spoiling your pets and giving them extra love and attention.

Sheryl is a life-long animal lover who is recently retired from medical and pharmaceutical sales and is now free to have fun working with animals! Sheryl studied Zoology in college and always dreamed of being a vet. She worked with a vet during high school and college and gained valuable knowledge about medicating animals, including giving injections. She lives with her husband of 40 years and her lovable Lab named Buzz, plus Seamus the opinionated former barn cat. She looks forward to meeting you and your pets.
Brandon has had his dog Snoopy for as long as he could possibly remember. He currently lives in Gaithersburg with his two pets Snoopy & Eve. Brandon describes himself not as a dog or cat person, but as an all animal person. He loves any and every type of animal. His cat, Eve (aka Ms. Cat) was adopted from the shelter and he has had the pleasure of being her "Cat Dad" for over a year now. Having a dog for his entire life and now having a cat, gives him much better insight on how he can give your fur babies the tenderness and care they deserve!
