A Word from Our Owner

Nicole

The path to creating Colee's Pet Care started years ago when I was a child, shocking my mom with all the crazy critters I'd bring home with me - cats, dogs, rats, mice, ferrets, snakes, lizards, salamanders, frogs, fish, chickens, ducks, and even a pig. 

Believe it or not, as a child, I was the full-time caregiver of these pets. I would save up all of my allowance for months and take weekly trips to the local pet store in order to care for them. I was also known to bring home any hurt animals and nurse them back to health, so I could release them back into nature. 

As we age, sometimes we end up separated from our passion. I ended up working for several health insurance companies for about 16 years. But finally, after much soul searching and after adopting my puppy, Audrey, I knew I needed to pursue my passion of caring for animals and opened up Colee's Pet Care.

I'm so proud of the team we've built and the passion we've brought to caring for your pets as part of our family. We can't wait to meet you & your pets!

"Colee has been walking Pico for 4.5 years now. We met Colee when we moved into the area and saw her walking dogs. Her professionalism, timeliness and availability however, the thing we love most about Colee is how much she loves each and every one of the dogs she takes care of. Previously, when we would go away, I would worry constantly about how our dog, Pico, was doing. With Colee, we left for a one week long vacation and I did not have a single worry about Pico. Colee sent us photos and it was clear Pico had a wonderful week too."

Jane

Pet Care Specialist

Hi, I’m Jane! I’m currently a Senior at Cal State Northridge. I’ve been working in the pet care business for about 3 years now and currently foster dogs as well. Growing up, I always had multiple dogs of all different breeds, sizes, and temperaments, so I’m comfortable working with every kind of pup! Working with pets is truly my favorite thing in the world, and it has taught me so much about patience and responsibility. I’m so excited to meet your buddies!

I earned my BFA in Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design. Although I worked for years doing graphic design and an administrative assistant, I realized that taking care of animals is my true passion. 

I have worked as a pet care provider and dog walker for 7 years. I received my dog walking certification/CPR course while residing in San Francisco.

Kristen - Colee's Pet Care in Long Beach

 I have always been an animal lover and hoped to work with pets as a profession. Fortunately, pet sitting found me! When I lived in Japan as a military wife, many Navy families traveled home to the US and needed someone to care for their fur babies as if they were their own. Not too long after that, I became the go-to pet sitter for our community and I absolutely loved it!

 

When I returned to the States in 2012, I resumed life in the finance industry and I knew immediately that something was missing. So, I quit my job to pursue my passion once again. ​I absolutely love caring for such gentle, loving souls. It's always an honor to be chosen as their caretaker.
