As the new owner, I have a long history with Critter cafe, I have been an employee there for 13 years and it has been my passion to care for other peoples dogs and the retail of the store. Every dog that comes into the building is family, our "kids". One of the things that I love about critter cafe as the owner but also as an employee is the smaller boarding facility gives us the ability to give every dog and owner that enter the building a personal intimate experience every time.
All of my staff I have worked with for over 6 years and they are my family, and thats how critter cafe comes off as, is a family. My daughters started coming to work with me at ages 5 and 6, and they are now 19 and 21 and still frequent and help out and come give love to all aspects of critter cafe and the dogs and staff. I have been known around the island as the animal lady for at least 15 years. I ran a rabbit rescue for marco island for 4 years. I have animal experience, ownership, and knowledge in reptile, dog, cat, small animal, snakes, some exotics. Critter cafe has been my life my love my passion and my dream to own since the first day I walked in the door 13 years ago.
