Robert Oaks - Head of Staff and Services

Dogs bring so much joy to people just by simply walking through parks and seeing them so I felt extremely fortunate when I was able tto adopt one of my own. He was a Yorkie named Rocky which was fitting because he was such a small dog with such a big personality. The impact he had and still has on my life is tremendous and it prompted me to want to give as much as I could to the rescue dog population so I started to volunteer at shelters. While walking and caring for them, I realized my love for dogs and wanted to spend as much time around them as possible. That said, I decided to make this my career path and l haven't ever been more satisfied or fulfilled. It brings me joy to give our client's dogs that extra love they deserve and care for them as if they are my own.

Lisa Naranjo - Assistant Head of Staffing

I remember as a kid going to the dog park each weekend to sit and watch the dogs play. I’d stay there for hours as the time flew by and think to myself “It can’t get any better than this”. When I was 12, I got my first pet, and although it wasn’t a dog, I was taught the most valuable of lessons. I learned responsibility, respect, compassion, and most importantly love. The unconditional love that you receive from your pet is something you can only understand once you’ve felt it. I take great pride in caring for your pet in any way that I possibly can. I’m living inner child’s dream and I know my younger self would be so happy.
