Owner and Mobile Groomer
“I have been a pet lover ever since I was a small child, and began working in the Pet Care Industry way back in 2001. Six years later, I became a groomer, and many around Huron might say that today I care more about pets than I do about people! That being said, I can’t think of a time when my pets have ever let me down, or not been happy to see me. My husband Mike and I currently have 2 cats, Libby and Smokey, and 3 French Bulldogs named Fiona, Phoebe and Frankie. All in all, I love both cats and dogs, as they have always been an essential part of my life.”
Boarding Manager & Grooming Assistant
“I grew up in the small farming town of Hitchcock, and animals were a part of my everday life. I have always loved them. I spent year s of my childhood as a volunteer for the humane society. I’m so excited I’ve found a place to work where I can indulge my love of animals, and not keep them all myself.
I’m a mother of 6 children, and we have a dog Logan and a cat Aphmau.”
“My name is Hope Schiltz. I moved to Huron from Minnesota when I was 15. I’m a senior this year and as I look back on what I wanted to be when I was younger, I always told people I wanted to work with animals. I’ve had different thoughts as to what I wanted to be since then, but now that graduation is quickly approaching, I’ve decided I want to be a vet tech. I absolutely love animals and I couldn’t imagine life without having them when I was younger. I grew up with dogs and cats my whole life and there was never a dull moment with them around. I love getting to work with dogs everyday; they all have such different personalities and it’s so fun getting to know them!”
Groomer and Boarding Assistant
“My name is Karlee. I’ve had a passion for animals my entire life. If I could, I’d own them all, but since I can’t, I take joy in my small funny farm at home. I have 3 labs now: Cooper, Roxy, and Sage. I also have 2 cats, Whiskey, featured in my picture, and Max, who I’ve had since I was young.
There’s always been animals in my home. At one point there were three dogs, my two cats, and two rabbits.”
