Annie Bishop, owner AGB Mobile Petcare

I’ve known Vanessa for over six years, while pet sitting for her own fur babies. Her desire to make a difference and spread awareness is moving and inspirational. I have reached out to her on numerous occassions to discuss re-homing situations of my clients and she always has helpful recommendations to offer. Her knowledge in the field is unsurpassed and her empathy and understanding is truly genuine. I recommend and trust her services without hesitation. You will not find anyone else out there who can do what Vanesssa does. She’s the best!

Vanessa is about as authentic, honest, and well informed as they come. Her life-long passion for the well being of animals, coupled with her sincere desire to make a difference in their lives, has resulted in an all encompassing journey to share her gift to help as many animals as humanly possible. Her kindness and compassion are evident when you interact with her, but, her mission to serve is founded on years of research and education as well as personal experience. Vanessa is savvy and insightful, her advice and guidance are delivered with careful consideration for what is best for the animal. You are in very capable and loving hands.


Linda Marie Shepperd Daniels, pet owner

Vanessa asked me to do a shelter intake evaluation on a dog that was outside of her area, but local to me. The dog sounded as though she would be highly adoptable. Because she was in a home since birth, AND she could not go directly into a foster home at the time, Vanessa went over Maya’s information with me, and (decided/agreed) that she should come to our house, instead of going through the shelter system.

Maya fit into our pack perfectly, almost four years ago. Without Vanessa’s dedication to effectively matching dogs and families, we might not have our Maya. I am grateful every day that Vanessa helped Maya join our family. We adore both of them!!

Due to our shared passion of animal rescue, I have had the privilege of knowing Vanessa for almost 6 years. I have watched Vanessa experience many medical and behavioral issues with her personal dogs as well as helping shelter dogs. Through these issues she has become very educated in things that do and don’t work for many breeds. Most of us have our “heart” dog, but depending on the circumstances of our lives, that dog may not be the best choice. Adding a new family member to your lives should never be taken lightly. The goal is or that dog to be a FOREVER member of your loving family. To aid you in achieving that goal, I would highly recommend utilizing Vanessa’s expertise and knowledge when making this commitment.
