I have been an animal lover for as far back as I can remember. My mother worked for the Humane Society, so we always had a new rescue or two at our home. It was at a young age I knew I wanted to be surrounded by animals for the rest of my life. Dog walking and pet sitting allows me to share in the joy and love of having a great many animals in my life. How do I justify taking money to do what I love, I pay it forward by volunteering my time for the environment, sustainability, education or working with rescues.I am a big supporter of local businesses, and am constantly taking steps to reduce my carbon footprint. I am always willing to go above and beyond, which creates a fulfilling life, and love to do it.
Steph’s french bulldog was adopted at 8 months, he is what you call my “problem child”, but he has taught me so much. I have learned about his anxiety and psychology to help him adjust. He is on his way to recovery and get’s better every day!
An animal lover her whole life, Jennifer Walrath owned and operated a pet-sitting/dog walking business for nearly 10 years in Fishtown. She recently went back to school to refresh her education in biology and got into a program sponsored by The Wistar Institute studying biomedical technology. There, she attained two research assistant positions studying breast and ovarian cancer, and an enzyme associated with chromosomal length. While Jen appreciated this experience, she realized that a petri dish of cells is no substitute for a living, breathing, conscious animal. She missed the interaction she had with dogs and the relationships she formed with the people of her neighborhood. Jen has been delighted to return to working with animals last year and has not looked back. She now lives a double life of walking dogs and spending her free time making biologically themed art.

Naturally, Amy is absolutely elated with the chance she has to walk and take care of the neighborhood's dogs for work. In her free time, Amy enjoys writing, various art projects, as well as exploring what parts of Fishtown she has yet to visit and seeing what else it has to offer. But first and foremost, she is dedicated to ensuring the happiness and well-being of the pets she is tasked with caring for.
