I have had pets all my life from cats to horses! I'v always loved being around animals and dreamed of working with them some day. As a little girl, I saw myself either as a Jockey, mounted police woman or vet. Although they didn't become my future, I wasn't far off track...I am working as a pet care provider and business woman! It as been an amazing experience. . It is great to see our business running smoothly and having the best staff ever!!. I am able to enjoy caring for all my furry, feathered friends and non furry, feathered friends as well. I truly look forward to meeting with you and your pets!

I met Angela, the owner of Happy Paws one day while I was walking my dog during a trail hike I was taking with my buddy "Scoobie". We talked for a bit and discussed what she did. Since I was retired I thought I might give pet sitting a try... I already had a love for pets! I started in the summer of 2001 and have been with Happy Paws ever since. I live with my wife Carol and another dog named Baby, she is my companion sometimes during early morning jogging.
Hi...I'm Wendy. I've been with Happy Paws for a quite a few years now. I started off in bookkeeping and now helping out with pet care. I'm hoping some day to have a "Doggie Day Care" of my own or help out Happy Paws if we decide to expand and offer one to the community! My daughter would love to help out too! She is also a big animal lover. I live with my husband, we have a daughter and son as well as many dogs and cats that complete our family!
I've been working for Happy Paws since October 2013 and love to take care of your pets while you are at work or away on vacation. It's so rewarding for me to meet new furry friends, cats, dogs..and other animals. I love to talk to the animals I visit while your not home. I have had dogs all my life while I raised my 3 children. I now have a cat "Beachy" and live with my husband Mark in Frederick. I look forward to giving the care your pets will need while your away! ont-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: small;">
Reena and Odie
I have been working with Happy Paws for about 8 years now. I have a bunch of animals at home too! Dogs, cats, horses, birds and bunnies. My daughters have been in 4-H ever since they were little. In order to support their shows and horses I thought it would be good to do something I know alot about...animals and pets! I now I have one daughter in college and one in high school which has given me extra time to work with Happy Paws pets. I look forward to meeting yours! :-)
I started with Happy Paws in May as a part-time sitter. I live in Thurmont with my two sons, one dog, one cat, two horses, six chickens, and two bearded dragons. I have always loved animals and grew up around my uncle’s dairy farm. I enjoy meeting and caring for all kinds of pets, from farm animals to furry and non-furry pets, to our feathered friends. I can’t wait to meet and care for yours! Dawn
I have a non profit background, in both educational and environmental settings, but have pet and house sat part time for the past six years. During that time I acquired more unique animal skills such as caring for birds of prey and marine life species of the Pacific NW. When I moved to Frederick in December 2015, I knew pet sitting was something I wanted to get back into. I found Happy Paws was warmly welcomed on to the team. I look forward to a day in my future when I have my own pets to love and care for, but until then, I will happily fulfill that love by helping others with their pets!
Hi, I am Kim and I live in Frederick, Maryland with my cat Bandit. I was very excited to start sitting for Happy Paws with Angela in mid 2015. I grew up in South Jersey with both dogs and cats.

I grew up in Lebanon, Pennsylvania; graduated from the University of Scranton with a degree in Communications after studying abroad in London; and I moved to the DC metro area in 1997. I have been in Frederick since 2007. I work at a medical non-profit association in Bethesda and thoroughly enjoy the petsitting I do on weekends and evenings. It has allowed me to meet so many cool dogs and cats! I have been a big animal lover since I was a child and I adore all animals, from household pets to farm animals to wildlife. I have two senior cats, a buff-colored tabby named Freyja who I adopted when she was a month-old kitten and a tuxedo cat named Tanner who I adopted when he was 13 years old. My favorite hobbies include reading, photography, and travel--especially solo travel.

Meet Carolyn - Office Manager & Sitter
I started with Angela in early 2014 and am so glad to be part of the Happy Paws team! I couldn’t ask for a better company to work with, a better boss to work for and a better way to spend my days then caring for your pets! I grew up with many pets – dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and currently have a wonderful tabby cat named Boots, a husband and five kids. As a child I wanted to be a veterinarian so I always knew I wanted to do something that involved animals someday. I enjoy the fresh air and exercise each day walking my midday pups and the flexibility that I have to spend time with animals and my kids. I look forward to meeting and caring for your furry family members!

Me and my fur babies!
My name is Angela and I started working with Happy Paws in mid-2016 after I semi-retired from working as a wildlife biologist. I wanted to do something rewarding and fun where I could be around animals and help people too. Pet sitting is a perfect fit! I have always loved animals and have owned many kinds - rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, birds, turtles, mice, rats, hamsters, snakes, and of course dogs and cats. I live in Ijamsville with my husband and our two rescue dogs, Bo and Wookie, and our cat Midnight. I love working for Happy Paws and look forward to caring for your pets - no matter what kind they are!
