Janet is originally from New Paltz, NY but has spent most of her life here in Rochester. She originally went to school to be a cosmetologist but while finishing school she rekindled her passion for animals by working at a kennel; she has been working with animals for close to 5 years now. Janet grew up with deaf parents so she is fluent in American Sign Language and loves being involved in deaf culture. When she is not caring for your pets at Riverside Pet Retreat, you can find her taking her dog Wendy and her cat Vendetta on hikes, kayaking adventures, or curled up watching a horror movie. Her all-time favorite animal is the shark and she hopes to one day go open water swimming with them. She treats all pets like her own and will spoil them with love and attention while they are here!
Erin’s life has always revolved around animals, big and small. When she started volunteering at a farm animal rescue, she knew she had found her passion. She attended SUNY Cobleskill college and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science. She worked at her previous job for 5 years, specializing in dog and cat husbandry. She also did an internship at a big cat sanctuary, where she cared for tigers, lions, and leopards! Erin is an avid traveler and also dabbles in photography. Erin is very excited about providing a safe place for your pets and can’t wait to meet them!
