am a university of Arizona student studying linguistics and East Asian culture. I have had numerous pets all my life. I have had parrots, fish, cats, dogs, and various reptiles. When I was sixteen I worked at sunkist stable for horse back riding lessons and so i could be around horses. I loved riding western. I am used to being around rescue animals as we have three at my families home and I can handle their needs and be kind to their unusual behavior.
In a world that can be unkind, I choose to speak for the fur people who cannot speak for themselves. I volunteer at the THe Hermitage Cat Shelter, and I donate to the Desert Museum and many other wildlife groups. I'm currently owned by only one cat. I love him dearly and know he loves me. There have been other cats in my life as well as dogs, fish and even a rabbit. I love animals, and Fetch! has answered a need in my life to connect with them. Looking after other people's animals is a blast.
I moved to NW Tucson in 2011 with my husband and two children. I have two kitties of my own, a chubby orange tabby and a very petite calico. I have always had a soft spot for animals. My family always had 2 or 3 cats while I was growing up and I got my first dog when I was 14. She was a beautiful Golden Retriever and my very best friend. As a teen and young adult I spent a lot of time working in animal shelters and in a kennel as a dog walker. I am so excited to be working for Fetch and I can not wait to meet you and your furry babies!
I was raised on a farm where animals were our way of life. They have always held a soft spot in my heart, whether domesticated or not, and they will always fascinate me. I am a fine artist/painter/sculptor, work out of my home, have no children, so boarding your pet gives you peace of mind, and helps me with my "pet fix". My pets have long gone, so taking care of yours gives me joy. Fetch! Pet Care has become an integral part of my life allowing me to stay home and create art, work my garden and be with animals. I worked for Fetch for a few years before becoming its next owner. Ken Locklin and I now own the Fetch Pet Care Franchise and operate our business out of our home. Because I can stay home, and create Art and be surrounded by animals I consider my life complete!
Working with Fetch! Pet Care is a second career for me. I retired last year after teaching for 34 years, and now I can choose what I really want to do. I volunteer at Tucson Wildlife Center, where we rehabilitate sick desert animals. At home I care for two dogs adopted from rescue organizations. It is exciting to see how both tame and wild animals have their own personalities that we humans must consider as we care for them.
I grew up in Tucson, and while growing up we always had a dog. I also had a succession of hamsters, rats and other small pets to love and care for. I now share my home with Malcolm, a Lab-mix puppy, and Kaylee, an adorable mutt, both rescued by the Humane Society. I am constantly trying to learn as much as possible so that I can be the best possible pet parent. I am excited to use my knowledge, experience and love of animals to help others care for their pets.
ken Locklin is the book keeper for Fetch. He also is married to the owner of Fetch, Jessica Mccain. Together they enjoy working with dogs, and primarily board your fury friends at their home. Large yard, lots of shade, pool. Together they work out of their home and are there to give lots of attention and love to your furry family members while you are away!
I am so grateful for the wonderful dogs and cats I have had over the years. Having been without any for the past 2 years I am very excited about starting a new family of kidz. I volunteer at Casa de los Gatos and am in the process of adopting 2 of their wonderful cats. I love traveling to see the more exotic animals. My favorites are the gorillas, chimps, orangutans, big cats and camels.
When I was growing up my family had all kinds of animals
(fish, birds, lizards, rats, cats, and dogs...not all at the same
time, of course). These days I have two dogs: Maddie the
corgi, and Scotty the (very hyperactive!) terrier mix. When I'm
not taking care of animals, I am an artist, and I paint pet
portraits, which can be seen at
