How I got here....
Born and raised in the Pacific NW, from a young child I was fixated on helping animals. I organized my very first fundraiser for the local Humane Society at age 7 and was always drawing up plans for my own pet rescue. I also had a love for music and started my career in the music business. Being drawn to animals my entire life while undergoing a career in the music industry, I spent numerous hours volunteering for animal welfare organizations. Some of these included The Doney Clinic for Pets, Seattle Animal Shelter, Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Clinic & the Progressive Animal Welfare Society. I've assisted the veterinarians, helped with adoptions and fundraisers, organized events and headed up a dog walking program at the local animal shelter. The writing was on the wall so to speak.This led to my leaving my former career to enter the pet care field full-time, a field that I felt I was destined for all along. I took a job in a Veterinary clinic while I prepared to launch my own pet care business.
In 2001 I launched Pets Dig Me Pet Care
and have been taking care of Ballard dogs and cats ever since. Not only am I a Ballard-based business I reside here as well. This is my permanent career so, with Pets Dig Me, you and your pet can count on stability.
Pets Dig Me has always been, is and always will remain a small local business with no employees or independent contractors. You and your pet will always get me, someone with experience, who cares and whom you can trust, on each and every service. Pets Dig Me is established with over 19 years of service and countless outstanding references from your Ballard neighbors. I take pride in running an honest, ethical business with an abundance of compassion.
"Pets deeply move me. Helping them is what makes me tick, what gets me up in the morning and is what gives my life fullfillment"
