Pet Resort Managers:

Kevin
Kevin and FamilyKevin’s love for animals and for his stepdaughter Tiffany (Pet and Home Care Founder/Owner) made his transition from the real estate industry to the pet care business an easy one. Kevin has been a team leader at Pet and Home Care for over six years and he, along with his team at our wonderful Pet Resort, provide an exceptional level of love, care, and fun for the animals that board and attend day care. We’ve received countless testimonials from our valued clients explaining how their dogs sit anxiously by the window in the morning, waiting for the familiar white van to pull up. Then they sprint towards Kevin and shower him with hugs and kisses knowing that great fun lies ahead at our Pet Resort. Kevin is certainly the leader of his pack and the dogs he cares for both adore and respect him. When he’s not taking care of the dogs at the Pet Resort there are plenty of animals at home that all rely on him. Residing indoors are his Jack Russell (Hunter), Ragdoll cat (Stoney) and some various aquarium dwellers. Kevin, along with his wife and son, have made their 50-acre farm a home to pygmy goats, alpacas, chickens and the like, most of whom were adopted to have a better life. Kevin is also an avid sportsman, conservationist, and wildlife manager and is continually undergoing habitat improvement projects and cultivating both annual and perennial food plots to benefit whitetail deer, wild turkeys and numerous other species of wildlife that reside on his property. In case it wasn’t clear to you yet, Kevin is a genuine animal lover.

Emily
EmilyR150x150
My name is Emily and I was raised in Frederick, Maryland. When I’m not dog sitting or staying overnight with my husky, I’m usually hiking, driving around with friends, or at home cooking. I go to FCC as a full-time freshman and plan to transfer to a four-year college when I finish my general associate’s degree. I spent a few months volunteering at a rescue horse farm (Misty Manor in Marriottsville) last year, and while I was there, I learned how to tack and ride horses. Eventually, I progressed to be one of the co-guides for riding trails at the farm. I plan on owning my own pack of dogs soon, (Preferably German Shepherds or Huskies) so I intend to stay with the Pet and Home Care and learn as much as I can while caring for your lovable furry friends!

She grew up taking care of her large family dogs (Newfoundland, Pit Bulls, German Shepherds) and six (human) siblings. Earning her degree has allowed Mia to research canine personalities, which lead to more successful adoptions. She moved abroad and worked with diverse species in Asia and then performed behavioral training with therapy donkeys in Europe. Mia is now living in her hometown and is stoked to continue broadening her experience with the Pet and Home Care family!
