Barbara Meshnick, Co-owner & Pet Sitter
Barbara is the founder of the company. She grew up in New Jersey where she raised 6 dogs of various breeds. Her family instilled in her the unique place in a family that pets have and she has continued to foster that belief through today. Barbara worked for years as a Business Systems Analyst in the financial industry of New York City but she decided to open this business in order to put her love of animals to work.
Barbara has been active as a volunteer with local non-profit pet adoption groups here in Jacksonville as well as acting as a foster parent for many years. She has also been instrumental in finding homes for many unwanted or lost pets by utilizing her substantial pet industry contacts.
Matthew Meshnick, Co-owner & Pet Sitter
Matt is Barbara's husband and the co-owner of the company. He also was born and raised in New Jersey where the family home always had at least two dogs residing within. Pets were always viewed as members of the family and Matt was regularly called upon to care for the pets while the rest of the family members were away.
Matt worked as a Call Center and Business Processes Manager in the NYC metro area for years but gladly jumped on board with Barbara in this venture due to his undying love of animals.
Matt is the member of the team who conducts the Initial Client Consultations along with providing superior care for our clients' pets. He is adept at providing subcutaneous insulin injections for diabetic pets.
