MEET THE TEAM

Michelle S.

Michelle S.

Owner and Founder

Hello & Welcome! I am so excited to have you visiting our website! We are a team of Pet Care Specialists that LOVE what we do!

A little bit about me; I moved from Washington, Connecticut to Cave Creek, Arizona with my family in 1999. I was too young to choose where we moved but beyond grateful to land in Cave Creek! I have been a grateful “Creeker” for the past 20 years while remaining very close to my roots in CT. My whole life I have had a love and respect for all animals! They have always been a part of my life. I can remember pet sitting for our neighbor who had a litter of kittens when I was 10 years old (Best job EVER!). Fast forward to today I have been able to turn my years of experience into an incredible company!

I started Paws & Claws Pet Sitting Services, LLC with the goal to help care for other pets just as I have my own. I would like to make it easier for you to leave your beloved pets home while you are busy or away on that much-deserved vacay. Knowing your pets will be cared for with full love and attention by one of our experienced heart centered pet care specialists will put your mind at ease while you’re away, while keeping your pets comfortable at home. I stand by our team and everything our company has to offer! We look forward to caring for your pets!

Each of our Pet Care Specialists are employees. They have been hand selected by me and is held to a higher standard of pet care. You can rest easy knowing our team has been background screened through Pet Pro Check.

Our team is ready to provide you with extraordinary care for your pets and superior customer service for you!

Tailwags,

LINDA A.

Cave Creek, Arizona | Pet Care Specialist

I grew up in Minnesota out in the country, surrounded by animals. We lived on four acres and had horses, cats, dogs, fish, sheep and even a pig. My mom raised dogs so we had around 50 dogs at all times to care for, feed and love on. I spent all of my spare time outside playing with the animals. Our family moved to Arizona in 1975 and I eventually moved to Creek Creek. I’ve been lucky enough to be a Creeker for the past 25 years. I remember riding horses from Rattle Snake Ranch on Dynamite through the washes and desert long before Tatum Boulevard existed.I have raised my family here and now enjoy watching my grand-kids grow up in Cave Creek. Throughout my life I’ve helped dogs deliver puppies, cats deliver kittens and I even delivered a goat, saving both the mom and baby goats life! I live close to our wonderful Cave Creek Museum and enjoy all Cave Creek has to offer through its rich history.We currently have two wonderful dogs that keep us laughing and add so much love to our home. I enjoy spending time with pets and giving them the added time and attention they deserve because they give back so much more. Working with Michelle and the Paws and Claws Pet Sitting Team is an honor and a pleasure because the entire team provides such quality care for your pets. This gives you the peace of mind that your furry family members are in good hands while you’re away. Thank you, Linda

Cave Creek, Arizona | Pet Care Specialist

Hi! I am originally from Minnesota and now live in Carefree. We still go back to Minnesota for the beautiful summers so feel we have the best of both worlds! I grew up on a lake in southwest Minnesota with lots of cats and dogs. I have had a Siberian husky, pug, a couple of yellow labs, and my current pup who is a Cairn Terrier named Kobe.

I worked in the corporate world for over 20 years (and totally loved it). Being semi-retired now, I love having more time to spend with family and friends and doing things I truly enjoy like golfing, hiking, and hanging out with fur babies.

I can’t wait to meet and care for your furry friends! They are always in good hands with Paws & Claws – we treat them with the same love and respect as we do our own!

NICOLE F.

Litchfield, Connecticut | Office Manager

Hi! My name is Nicole and I’m from Watertown, CT. I was born deaf and got my cochlear implant when I was just 4 years old; while I faced a long journey of learning how to adapt to the hearing world, I also learned about my strong love for animals. I grew up on a small farm and spent my childhood falling in love with every single animal I met! My favorite memory is coming home from school and spending the afternoon playing outside with our dog & snuggling with the cats on the couch. I’m in school working towards my life long dream of becoming a vet while being a devoted pet mom to four beautiful girls. I currently reside in Litchfield with my boyfriend and our pit bull & three cats; and I’m looking forward to meeting & taking care of your little one(s)! – Nicole

MARY O.

Torrington, CT | Lead Pet Care Specialist

Hello! I’m Mary. I was born and raised in Connecticut and I am now living in Torrington, CT. I have lived within many places in the Northwest corner, but no matter where I was living, there was always a furry friend to make the home more welcoming. For as long as I can remember, I have loved pets of all kinds… especially the 4 legged furry ones! Growing up, there was always a dog in the house, sometimes 5 at once! From caring for my own pets to caring for the 4 legged companions of my friends and family, I view every pet as just another addition to my ever growing family! My favorite part of the day is going home and being greeted by tongues out and tails wagging the minute I step through the door! There is no better feeling than being met at the door by the ones you love the most! I love all pets and I’m grateful I have the opportunity to be a part of the Paws and Claws team and help care for all of your fur babies!
