Janelle's Story

We all dream of becoming veterinarians when we were little kids...or was that just me? Since I was a little pup myself, I had all sorts of animals: cats, dogs, chickens, hamsters, gerbils, rats (they’re really awesome pets!), and all the little critters in between, so it was natural that I would follow the footsteps of other animal lovers. As I grew older, the dream was put aside as I went to school for business (entrepreneurship to be exact) at Salem State College. Life seemed to be going well, working and living in Boston, until one day, destiny came back to show what I was truly meant to become.

I really needed to focus on what type of career would fulfill my life. What am I passionate about enough to advance my skills and knowledge and wake up feeling excited to start the day? As I was going through all sorts of ideas and sorting out thoughts of where to go next, I felt a head-butt press against my leg, and as I looked down to see my beautiful cat, Topanga, an epiphany of sorts came over me and it was in that moment, I realized what would make me feel most successful- Veterinary Technology. After hard work and determination, and many, many bumps in the road, I successfully completed the Veterinary Technology program at North Shore Community College in 2020.

Today, with my background of business and veterinary technology experience, I finally found my way to work with animals and run my own successful business! Now that you have my story, I’d love to learn more about you and your pets!

Overnight Pet Sitting, Cat-sits, Dog Walks

Hi there! I’m  Bridget! I have worked with animals of all shapes and sizes for almost five years now, and I wouldn't have it any other way! I have a 16-year-old cat named Rubie who is the best, and she always loves to sleep and eat snacks. When I’m not at work, I love to play the piano, go to the gym and read. I love constantly learning about dogs and animals, they are my absolute favorite. Working the best job ever is all I could ask for, spending time with animals all day!
