Meet the PetsGo Team!

Burnie

A pet nanny by day, a newspaper editor/designer by night, and a parent of two hedgehogs, two lizards, two snakes, and a kitten around the clock. I love that my work with PetsGo lets me stretch my legs and explore the city in the best kind of company: four-legged!

Why I’m “pawsome”:

  • Having grown up on a hobby farm north of Toronto, I’m accustomed to working with animals of all shapes and sizes and have been around them my entire life
  • I love getting outside and going for walks, especially if I have a friend (the hairier the better) along for the adventure
  • I’m basically an oversized terrier

My pets: My grumpy babes, Mabel and Piglet, the hedgehogs who have taught me that my patience can indeed be limitless, as well as a menagerie of reptiles, and most recently, Laika, our adorable tortoiseshell ball of kitty goodness.

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: While I have a veritable zoo of my own, I can’t get enough of animals, especially dogs, since I don’t have one of my own. Animals, with all their varied quirks, entertain me and inspire me to no end.

When I’m not pet sitting, I’m… playing board games, editing or reading speculative fiction, gardening, attempting to cat-proof my studio…

Clara

I’m an Interaction Design student originally from Ireland and have made Toronto my home for the last few years. I have always loved animals and grew up surrounded by lots of pets. I love getting out to explore the city and meeting awesome new furry friends!

Why I’m “pawsome”:

  • I have experience with all kinds of animals, big and small, and have never met a four-legged creature that I was not completely enamoured with.
  • I am the kind of person who will stop mid-sentence to admire a passing dog; if you live near Trinity Bellwoods there is a high probability I have stopped you to say hi to your dog.
  • I will continue to throw a ball for as long as any good dog is willing to fetch it.

My pets: Roxy is an incredibly photogenic CollieXCavalier who lives with my family in Ireland. She is as adept at snuggling as she is at stealing food.

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: Getting to work with animals is a dream for me! I always love meeting new four-legged friends and spending time with animals is always a highlight of any day for me.

When I’m not pet sitting, I’m… Cooking, reading, binge-watching acclaimed mini-series, and attempting to find the best brunch spot in Toronto.

Chelsea

I have combined my love of nature and all living things, with my passion for creative work as a freelance nature photographer and communications professional. As a lifelong animal lover, I am so excited to be able to spend my days around animals with PetsGo!

Why I’m “pawsome”:

  • I’ve worked in the pet industry for over three years
  • I’m experienced with all kinds and sizes of animals
  • I love being outside (particularly with dogs)

My pets: Winnie is a spunky tortoiseshell cat, who also happens to be the love of my life.

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: Any day spent with animals is a good day, especially when it allows me to get outside!

When I’m not pet sitting, I’m… Making illustrations, going on hikes with my camera, reading.

Jake

I grew up in the small town of Midland, but after six years in Toronto I know it’s my home. I’ve always adored pets and it’s amazing to be able to spend every day with my furry friends! I’m so grateful to have joined the PetsGo! team, it’s a blast.

Why I’m “pawsome”:

  • I’m very active and great with big, strong, excitable dogs
  • I’ve been praised for my ability to calm and befriend anxious cats

My pets: Jack, Jill and Alice – my favourite little fuzzy Ferret buddies!

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: Being outside, and getting quality 1-on-1 time with the cutest dogs and cats!

When I’m not pet sitting, I’m… Composing music (that’s my music in the video!), gaming, walking

Julien

Hello, I’m Julien! I’m the Design Lead at a social media marketing firm. I’ve always had a soft spot for animals and I’m excited to be a part of the PetsGo team and meet some new fuzzy friends!

Why I’m “pawsome”:

  • I’m as affectionate as I am responsible
  • I adapt well to different temperaments and personalities
  • I’m comfortable with animals all shapes, species, and sizes

My pets: I have a two year old Husky-Retriever named Cornelius who’s an extremely sweet big boy who isn’t aware of his own size.

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: Going out and about Toronto with an animal companion!

When I’m not pet sitting, I’m… doing graphic design, drawing, watching movies, spending time with loved ones and playing video games.

Kamelia

After always wanting to work with animals I decided that it was time to trade my office job for something that I truly enjoyed. An avid animal lover from young age I am excited that I can finally fulfill my two dreams of working outdoors and with animals through PetsGo. I am extremely excited to make lots of new furry friends!

Why I’m “pawsome”:

  • My summers as a kid were spent near a farm where I came in contact and played with all kinds of animals
  • I have had the pleasure of being a pet parent of 2 cats, a rabbit and rats
  • I love dogs so I always try to be out and about with my friends’ dogs and play with them as much as I can

My pets: I recently adopted a gorgeous tabby boy kitty who came from one of the hoarding situations. He has slowly been going through an amazing transformation, from being terrified of everything and hiding under the couch to warming up and wanting non-stop pets and attention!

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: Hanging out, being outside and making friends with all the amazing pets in Toronto!

When I’m not pet sitting, I’m… Reading and watching lots of sci-fi and fantasy, looking for and going to cool events, learning coding

Sarah K.

I’ve always had two great passions in life: being creative, and working with animals. So as a graphic designer & PetsGo employee, I’m living the dream! I’ve lived in this amazing city my whole life, and I can’t wait to get to know my neighbours (two legged & four legged!) even better.

Why I’m “pawsome”:

  • I’m very experienced with animals of all sizes and temperaments.
  • I’m active and love going for long walks.
  • My strongest instincts are to love & protect, hence my nickname among my friends as “Mama Bear!”

My pets: Winston is the biggest, fluffiest, sassiest cat who ever lived. He drools when he’s happy, and whenever I leave he sits and waits for me by the door. His highest priorities in life are eating and snuggling (in that order).

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: If it was at all reasonable, I’d have a zoo of animals all my own! That isn’t reasonable though, so the next best thing is getting to hang out with all the sweet and lovely pets of Toronto.

When I’m not pet sitting, I’m… Designing, baking and/or cooking, spending time with loved ones, catching up on my favourite TV shows, and discovering amazing new restaurants.

How can we help you?
