Sarah

Originally from Egypt, I grew up in Switzerland, before finally adopting Toronto as my home. I’m thankful for the privilege of being surrounded by pets every day. Running PetsGo! is literally a dream come true!

Why I’m “pawsome”:

My pets: Jack, Jill and Alice, my ferrets – they are the love of my life, and make me laugh every single day!

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: Doing my part in helping families keep their pets healthy and happy!

When I’m not running PetsGo!, I’m… Drawing, exercising, playing video games with friends


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


Shane

Hi! I’m a freelance writer, filmmaker and English teacher from Ireland who has fallen hopelessly in love with Toronto. Being around animals and working with them is my favourite thing in the world, and it’s been such a pleasure to be able to do that with PetsGo.

Why I’m “pawsome”:

  • Growing up in rural Ireland, I’ve owned and been around all kinds of animals, big and small, all my life
  • I’m comfortable with any and all personality types — I’ve yet to meet a dog or cat I couldn’t win over eventually
  • I’m very active, love being on my feet, and have been happily walking dogs of all shapes and sizes for years.

My pets: Right now, my two cats, Loki and Furby — both endless, ridiculous sources of fun and laughter.

My favourite thing about working with PetsGo: Getting out and about and meeting the coolest animals Toronto has to offer.

When I’m not pet sitting, I’m… Writing, teaching, biking, and dancing poorly.


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.
