Owner | Manager


Casie has always had a dream to work with animals. After sitting at her corporate job and wondering if there was more to life, she began the journey to make All Paws Retreat a reality. Two years later, we opened our doors to our first customers in January, 2019. Her passion for puppy sitting and fostering has now turned into a place where dogs can go to play, be spoiled, and enjoy life to it's fullest in a safe environment. She is overly joyed to be surrounded by her All Paws Retreat family!

Tara has worked every job there is in the pet industry including, vet assistant, kennel tech and manager, doggie daycare attendant, pet supply specials, trainer and more. Tara is excited to work for a company that will allow her to grow and put her passion to good use.

Groomer

 

Whitney is one of the most amazing people you will meet. She is kind, caring, and hard working! She will take care of you and your pup too!

Whitney has been in the grooming industry for 15 years. Because of her experience, she has learned a lot about temperaments and coat textures. She is skilled in clipper work and scissor work. Perhaps her best quality - she is able to take what you as a pet parent wants and what the pet actually needs and turn that into a great haircut every pup would love to strut down the street with!

A Poem From Megan

May it brighten your day as it did mine.

Puppies and puddles, licks and hugs

They arrive with so much love

A smile on their faces

A twinkle in their eyes

They're just so cute

No need to ask why!
