Susan has been an animal lover most of her life. As a young child she would bring home abandoned animals that she found. Susan grew up with dogs and horses and was always knee deep in animals. She started raising and showing horses in high school.
As time went on her passion for animals grew into a life long dream of owning a breeding farm where she could raise foals. Before graduation she decided she would work towards that dream and in her senior year Susan started working for a veterinarian as a kennel assistant.
While working for the veterinarian she earned her degree in Equine Training and Management. After graduation she remained working for the veterinarian and worked her way up to certified veterinarian technician.
While working as a vet tech Susan started pet sitting for the veterinarian hospital’s clients. After 10 years of working for the veterinarian Susan’s love for animals grew. She desired to learn how to take care of different kinds of animals besides dogs and cats.
In her desire to expand her pet care knowledge Susan found another veterinarian with a more expansive client base. There she learned how to take care of pocket pets, exotics, birds, reptiles, monkeys and some wildlife.
Susan was still pet sitting for the hospital clients when she came to the realization that there was a need for pet sitting on a professional level. In 1996 Susan started her own pet sitting company All Creatures Pet Sitting. While getting her business going, Susan worked full time as a certified vet technician. In 1998 Susan left employment at the veterinarian clinic and became a full time pet sitter.
Susan is active in helping rescue groups. She soon will be doing some volunteer work. Here is a list of some local rescue

Donna and her husband have two awesome “kids” (dogs): Sooty, a big, pure white Siberian Husky with gorgeous ice blue eyes and Marley, a yellow Lab with the sweetest, melt-your-heart brown eyes and the happiest tail in the West! The two are the very best of buds.
