Gabi

owner/founder + operator
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.

Hunter

owner + creative/marketing
Bio

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.

Anissa

MANAGER + PET PROFESSIONAl
Bio

Hey, I'm Anissa! I began as a pet sitter in 2019, and since then I've become SHP's manager. I pay extra attention to detail, leave your home cleaner than you left it, and I aim to go the extra mile! I love what I do, and in my free time, I love to travel and spend time with my family.

Jade

PET PROFESSIONAL
Bio

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!

Andrea

PET PROFESSIONAL
Bio

Hey, I'm Andrea! I've been a part of the SHP team since 2019. My obsession with animals began before I could even speak. I loves all animals, but dogs hold a special place in my heart. I have an artistic eye, I love interior design, and I pay attention to every little detail. I am mom to two sweet pups, and I also took in a pup from an assisted living for over 1 year now due to the pandemic.

Susan

PET PROFESSIONAL
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.

Myrrandah

PET PROFESSIONAL
Bio

Hi, I'm Myrrandah! I was born and raised in Salt Lake. I have two dogs of my own, Mickey and Lou, who are my best little friends! When I'm not caring for animals, I'm studying English at the U. I'm happiest outdoors, but I won't complain about curling up with a pup and reading a book or watching a movie either. I love animals of all kinds more than anything else in the world, always have! They make the world's best companions, and since that's typically their role in our lives, I think it's our duty to give them the best life possible. It is my goal to give each animal I meet exceptional care and make them feel as special as they are!

Serena

PET PROFESSIONAL
Bio

Hi, I’m Serena! I have been a pet lover my whole life. I have fostered two cats in the past year, and like to momentarily watch my parent’s German Shepard sweetheart on occasion. I have grown up surrounded by all kinds of pets, so I feel very comfortable around them. I just moved here this August for school to study biology at Salt Lake Community College on the pre-med track. I moved here for the amazing outdoor opportunities found in Salt Lake City. I love to rock climb, ski, mountain bike, and camp. I’ve been loving living here so far, and I hope that I can meet some new pets and love it even more! I am so excited to be a part of this team because I believe dogs deserve the best in the world, and I know that everyone working here believes the same thing.
