Jojo
Client Care Specialist

Jojo

Growing up, animals have always been an interest of mine. I remember as a kid bringing home strays and attempting to claim them as my own. It wasn’t until I was 18 years old when I first got my pet, Cocoa, a mini australian shepherd. A couple of years later my fur-family has increased to second dog, Marco, a tuxedo cat, Shadow, and lastly my special boy Chee Chee who is a sugar glider. My passion grows further than our beloved pets but their owners who show a great deal of interest and compassion towards their wellbeing. I will always strive my best for every being that walks through our door to feel comfortable, so they know their pet is in good hands and secure to ask any questions for we are here for you both.

I always grew up around animals, from rescuing cats and dogs to owls and squirrels.  After every storm my siblings and I would search our entire property for squirrels and birds that fell from their nests.  I had rats, parrots, snakes, pigs, chickens, a pony and more.  A foster pet was never temporary and our house was never quiet and it still isn't! My family owns many pets but my personal babies include Mavis, a manchester terrier and Miranda, a blue fronted amazon.
