Hi! My name is Dana Eckert and I am so thrilled to be working at Paws and caring for your furry family members! I absolutely love all animals and feel very passionate about their care and well-being. I have grown up with animals and have a lot of experience with healthy and sick animals, both young and old. I have a special place in my heart for the elderly animals. I have had dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, rats, and fish. I will stop traffic for an animal and have on many occasions (for kittens/cats, dogs, turtles and a raccoon once).
I have been a social worker for 28 years in many different fields (child protection, domestic violence, adoption, medical/hospital, mental health, intellectual and developmental disabilities). I have a wonderful husband, three great human children, and one lovely furry child. I spend most days working, being a taxi service for the kids, helping with homework, and being a soccer mom. I also love to read and do volunteer work for many different places like my church, my children’s school, St. Vincent de Paul soup kitchen, and My Dog Eats First.
I have a very flexible schedule and wonderful family support so that I am able to care for your fur children. It is a joy and a gift to be invited to play and love your pets while you are away.
