Emster's Paws came about 10 years ago completely by accident. I was caring for a neighbor's cat as a favor, in turn that neighbor told a friend about me, and the next thing I knew, Emster's Paws was in business!
I grew up in El Paso, Texas. We had 2 acres and about every animal you could think of at one point or another. We had dogs, cats, horses,cows,sheep,chickens,ducks,turtles, fish and lizards. I even fondly remember the pet monkey that my parent's friends had. I grew up loving and respecting all types of animals.
Although I have not had any formal training, I have had years of experience around many animals. I also spent most of my free time in FFA ( Future Farmers of America) while in high school. I have learned a few cool tips and training tricks along the way. I am comfortable administering most medications.
I recently decided to leave my full time job at Larchmont Temple where I have worked for the past 7 years as an administrator for the Religious School, The Assoc. Rabbi and the Cantor. I love spending all my time taking care of your animals, and will happily tell anyone who asks that I have the best job in the whole world. The dog park is my "office!"
I live in New Rochelle with my 2 daughters, Anita age 14 & Sarah age 11. My daughters both love animals as much as I do and frequently accompany me on my walks. We currently have 6 "forever" rescue cats at home, Maisy, April, Oreo, Fudgy, Nando and Dali'. We also have 3 frogs, Billie Bob, Fergilicious, & Tinkerbell Jr.
I have worked very hard to build up my business. My colleagues have all been hand picked and personally trained, and I am proud to say that our Emster's Paws team is absolutely the best of the best! My main priority is the happiness and safety of your animals. I look forward to working with you and your fur babies soon.
