Experience with animals and own pets

Hello there! My name is Chantal but I'm very well known as the crazy dog lady.

I have four furkids of my own and they are my entire world and happiness:

Doug- he is a Labrador adopted from the SPCA and he has major anxiety, so I am good at calming anxious dogs down.

Missy- this young ball of energy is a rescued Jack Russel cross.

Oreo- He is an adorable Miniature Doberman Pinscher, but he can also be a grumpy old man and snap. I am also able to calm him.

Pretzel- she is the queen of the house and still has some spunk at the ripe age of 14. She has major separation anxiety so we are attached at the hip!

I am very active on social media in terms of networking all animals that need a home, and I am a passionate advocate for the adopt don't shop movement. I volunteer at different animal shelters in my time free from studying, giving them some much needed undivided attention and love. I also collect blankets annually for shelter dogs in winter.

I believe I would be the perfect person to look after your furkids because animals are my passion in life and I care about all animals from the furry ones to the ones with scales. I also have a way with anxious dogs. I am a responsible and reliable young lady and I cannot wait to meet your furbabies!
