Hello, my name is Amy Shannon and I am the owner and operator of Loving Paws & House Sitting Canada Inc which I established in 2005 as Ottawa’s first “all-inclusive” Professional Pet Care Company. Today we continue to expand to various cities across Ontario which speaks volume to our professionalism, quality care, dedication, and outstanding team!
Prior to founding Loving Paws I obtained an honours diploma in Animal Health Sciences. While working as a Veterinary Technician I greatly valued a high quality of standard regarding my animal health skills; I took many courses covering topics such as first aid, CPR, Zoonotic immunization, dental care, behaviour, nutrition, orthopedics, and rehabilitative care.
I have had a passion and love for animals ever since I was a little girl. While I had intended to pursue my education in Veterinary medicine, I decided instead to work more closely with Pets and pet parents by providing professional services to pet parents and tender loving care to your pets. I strongly believe in the special bond between a pet and pet parents, and nurturing this bond has become the central force motivating me for many years and today as the founder of Loving Paws & House Sitting.
As a business owner, I am always seeking opportunities to increase my knowledge with the goal of ensuring our heartfelt team provides outstanding care to your pets and to ensure the success of Loving Paws & House Sitting as a professional pet care provider for decades to come!
Personally, my spouse and I share our home with 3 wonderful dogs: Camelot, Bella, and Dallas. And 4 horses: Solo, Diego, Steele, and Duncan. Who all provide us with joy and unconditional love. We only hope we give them as much in return as they give us!
With all my passion and love for animals and my professional business skills, I would greatly welcome the opportunity to assist you in the care of your pets!

Hello, my name is Sara. I joined the Loving Paws & House Sitting team in November 2006 as a Professional Pet Sitter servicing the Orleans area.
I was immediately impressed by the degree of professionalism and the friendly and caring approach to services that the company values, and I knew that I would fit in quite well because I hold the same perspective toward customer service.
The position of Client Care Coordinator has proven to be absolutely amazing over the past few years. Having the opportunity to work with animals on a regular basis, and meet with pet parents who have the same passion and love for pets as I do has been a truly rewarding experience, for which I am incredibly grateful.
Throughout my time working as a pet and house sitter I was also completing my education at the University of Ottawa in the communications field. My education has taught me several valuable aspects about working for an organization and doing so independently, which I always undertook as a sitter for Loving Paws & House Sitting.
The importance of staying organized, compassionate, and extremely detail-oriented are things my education taught me, and this helped me thrive at my job as a pet and house sitter.
I am proud to say that I completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Concentration in Communication in December 2008. After a year of working for Loving Paws & House Sitting as a pet sitter, I was delighted to be offered a position as Client Care Coordinator for the company. This position allows me to pursue even more of what I love, and to interact with clients and team members through telephone and email.
It has been a pleasure to hear so many wonderful stories about clients’ furry family members, and to share mine in return. I also feel that Loving Paws & House Sitting has an incredible team dynamic. The sitters are extremely supportive of one another, and their kind and friendly demeanour has helped me to excel at my position as Client Care Coordinator.
Now that I have completed my education, I hope to focus more on my duties at Loving Paws & House Sitting and to be able to do so for years to come, as the company continues to grow.
I look forward to hear all about your wonderful pets, to accommodate your requests, and to go above and beyond for you in any way possible.
