Meet the Owner
I have been an animal lover longer than I can remember. When I was young, I saved every penny I earned, not to buy toys, but to purchase pet supplies to put in my "animal emergency kit" that I kept stashed away in my closet. Somehow stray cats and dogs always managed to "find" me, much to my parents' dismay! Besides trying to bring home every critter I crossed paths with, I played with goats and hound dogs on a family farm, rode and showed horses, and volunteered at the local animal shelter walking and bathing dogs. Siberian Huskies have always been my breed of choice, and there has never been a time in my life when I did not have one. Other than dogs, I have owned horses, rats, hamsters, rabbits, cats, and more! As a child, some of my favorite books were those written by James Herriot such as All Creatures Great and Small, which has now inspired my business name as an adult!
I essentially have my own menagerie. There are my two dogs- Sita, a senior Siberian Husky, and Tulsi, a young Corgi/Border Collie mix. Four cats- an orange tabby named Monty that I rescued as a kitten from the parking garage of Christiana Hospital, Smokey the "tiny" orphaned gray cat that I bottle fed while also having a newborn human-baby. Sage the tail-less wonder who survived a broken pelvis, and Zabba, the young tabby mama cat who just kind of "showed up" at my house with her babies. Next there are my three bunnies- Hopper the Himalayan, Scooby the Dutch, and Skye the Mini-Lop. Last but not least, I have 17 chickens!
As soon as I was old enough, I started working as a veterinary technician, and I have several years of experience under my belt. In 2015, I packed up and moved to Delaware from Tennessee for work, but I found that I much preferred being outdoors and walking dogs to being stuck in a lab all day. Along with animals, nature is, and always will be my happy place! Since moving to Delaware, I pet sat for, managed, and helped to grow a different local pet care company for five years, volunteered at a therapeutic horse riding facility, and explored all of the state parks in the area with my own dogs and camera in tow! I also got married and added two human children to my pack. I am an avid gardener and crazy plant lady. All Creatures Pet Care as already grown so much, and I look forward to what lies ahead!
