Gabi

founder + ceo
Bio

Hey all! I'm Gabi. I started SHP because I knew I needed to be around animals for my mental health. For the first year, it was just me, walking and pet sitting 24/7. Almost every new customer told me they had a negative experience with pet care, before SHP. I couldn't turn any new customers away, because I was so angry that so many people had negative experiences and couldn't trust anyone for pet care. That needed to change. I hired Andrea (our first employee!) and the rest is history. We're now on a mission to transform pet care around the country! Before SHP, I was a personal assistant, a photo editor, and a store manager. My mom, Susan, instilled in me my love of animals; I grew up fostering 60+ kittens and always having dogs and cats around. In my free time, I like to run, paint, read, and play with my BFF pup Buster.

Hi, I'm Hunter! I began building the SHP brand in 2019, and in 2020, I joined Gabi as part owner. I am dad to Buster, an awkward McNab shepherd, and Ernie, a polydactyl tabby cat with thumbs! I've cared for turtles, tortoises, rats, mice, guinea pigs, bearded dragons, and many other animals over the years. I've designed for Adobe, Avaya, Wingers, but my passion lies with SHP.

Hi, I'm Andrea! I joined the SHP team in January of 2019 & I’ve loved every minute of it. It never feels like work because I’m passionate about what I do! Your pets deserve the best care & I aim to always provide that! My obsession with animals began before I could even speak. I love them all, but dogs hold a special place in my heart. I have an artistic eye and my favorite way to spend any free time is getting out to explore the best artist of them all; mother nature of course! I pay attention to every detail and I’m always looking for opportunities to learn. I’ve found such joy in training the SHP team & improving the pet care industry everyday! I am a mom to one sweet cat and two pups!

Hi, I'm Jade! After years in a managerial position at a cruise ship traveling the world, I have found my new love for working with animals, and I aspire to be a trainer in the future. I love spending time with my sweet Husky/German Shepherd mix Juneau, fostering pups in need, volunteering with Best Friends, and with family. I love hiking with pups off-leash!

Susan

Bio

Hello, I'm Susan! I have parented dogs and cats my entire life. I am very experienced with elderly, diabetic, and seizure-prone animals. I have been mom to many animals, including: Dizzy, a little yellow bird, Pugger, a chewy, deaf, cuddly white boxer, Alfie, a loud long-haired grey kitty, and many others, all of which were rescues. I'll drop everything and anything to care for every animal like I would my own.

Hi, I’m Jamie! I am originally from Oregon, but I now call Salt Lake my home. I love all animals and enjoy learning new skills. I love working with both animals and people, and providing excellent quality customer service is something I always strive for. I enjoy cleaning and creating a welcoming space and believe your environment has a huge impact on your mental health. I aim to provide life coaching services in the future as well.

Audrey

PET PROFESSIONAL
Bio

Hi, my name is Audrey! I have been in Utah all my life and from a very young age I have been immersed in the grooming world with my mother. Even though I might have left the grooming up to her I had always been there to help her in every other way I could. I rescued my fur baby Freya back in 2016 and both of us enjoy going camping up north and finding a nice river to take a dip in. I love finding the types of enrichment animals enjoy. If they'd like to be jumping into a lake, figuring out a puzzle for treats, or even just cuddling up close for love. I'm here for it all!

Stephanie

Hi, I'm Stephanie! I have worked in the mental health field for over 10 years and have been a mental health therapist for the last 6 years. I have always loved animals and have seen the incredible benefit pets can have on our mental health and the unconditional love they provide us. I love spending time with my sweet pug who stole my heart from the first moment I saw her, spending time outdoors and seeing new places. I am reliable, trustworthy and have an endless love for animals and their wellbeing.
