About Shelby

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm so excited you have stumbled upon my page! I have been working with animals since before I can even remember. My family is very animal oriented, some may even say pet crazy! I was raised in a Himalayan, Persian and Exoitc Cattery. Because of this I have plenty of experience with all kinds of cats. I have not only raised kittens into adults, but I have also become a pro at birthing kittens, administering medicine, bathing cat and dealing with cat related issues.

While living at the Cattery I also worked for our family Pet Sitting business. We were located near Pittsburgh PA and because of this location I not only worked with household pets furred, scaled, feathered and exotic, but also have quite a bit of experience with farm animals as well. While caring for these animals I administered medication and cared for even the most unruly animals.

Along with the cats in our home, we also raised dogs, rabbits, fish, reptiles including snakes, spiders, rodents, exotic animals, hatched chicks and ducklings and rehabilitated wildlife such as raccoon, squirrels, possums and multiple birds.

Once I moved away from that home I begun working at a a cage-free boarding and daycare facility. Here we cared for up to 150 dogs per day without kennels. We allowed the dogs to stay in one of three rooms dedicated to different sizes and temperaments of dogs. There were people with these dogs 24/7, at night we would cuddle with the boarders on futons and rest with the pups.

Along with all this experience I have also volunteered as a foster for multiple animals and at shelters when I was younger. I have assisted in the birth of multiple animals, raised and potty trained puppies, have cared for elderly and incontinent dogs, assisted in recuperation after surgery and rehabilitation of abused animals.

I have no problem caring for the young or the old. I understand all animals have their own personalities and don't mind animals some may brand as 'difficult'.

NOTE: I charge 5$ per dog bath added onto a vist, not 15$ .
