Kim

Kim

Packleader

Besides being the packleader,  I’m here to make sure your pets are always cared for, to step in and fill the role of pet sitter and dog walker when needed. I’m a pet lover, it’s a requirement to be in this business! Over the years, I’ve cared for and loved a variety of pets. Dogs and cats of course but also cockatiels, parakeets, aquariums, hamsters, and even hermit crabs! My husband and I currently share our home with Ziggy and Stardust our Standard Schnauzers, Tristan our NorWestie (aka Mutt) and our newest addition Jaxson the cat.  In my free time, I love decorating and home improvement projects. Once you’re part of our pet care family every pet is like my own.

Sheila is currently mom to 2 dogs, Ash an 11 year old Australian Cattle Dog, and Gypsy a 9 year old Brussels Griffin/ Australian Shepherd mix. Having lived with a pack of dogs where humans were outnumbered 2 to 1 Sheila has learned to speak the language of dogs and has a deep understanding of your companions need for exercise and social interaction with humans. Sheila and her husband have fostered dogs and one of those fosters became a permanent part of Sheila’s pack about 10 years ago, Ash.

Jessica

Jessica

Packleader / Office Manager

Jessica has been a partner and co-owner of Heart 2 Heart pet care since 2011. She’s now filling the role of office manager along with visiting her favorite dogs and cats each day. Jessica adopted her first cat in January of 2014, Clementine, which grew her love of taking care of them even more!   She also has her baby Bella who almost didn’t survive as a puppy due to Parvo. An experience like that puts in perspective of just how precious our fur babies lives are and how all the animals we take care of deserve the best so they can be as happy and comfortable as possible. She has always had a love of all animals since she was young. She has been a vegetarian for years and favorite animal (besides dogs and cats, of course) are pigs.  She is hoping sometime in the future she will be able to have an opportunity to take care of animals like a pig, or even a goat! Until then she is happy residing in Des Moines with her cat and taking her dog for walks at the beach and Marina.

My life has been filled with the love of cockatiels, parakeets, a cat, a horse and dogs.  I had the opportunity to train my first dog, a Kuvasz, as a Police Protection Dog with the State of Michigan Deputy Sheriff’s Department Police Dogs.  My last companion, Rosie, became a certified Service Dog. Professionally, my life has been dedicated to the art of music as a Lyric Soprano. I’ve performed soprano solos with orchestras, symphonic bands, small ensembles, and in recital from coast to coast. My heartfelt passions came to be when I achieved certification as a Reiki Master in the method of Natural Healing 25 years ago.  I am the happiest when I’m working with animals and helping our pets. I am happy to be joining the Heart 2 Heart Team.
