Allison S.
Pet Care Specialist                                     
Allison is so excited to be working with Heaven Sent! She is originally from
Columbia, Missouri and is a graduate of Stephens College.
"I have been an animal lover my whole life. I grew up in a house full of
cats and as a kid my friends and I volunteered every weekend at my local
Humane Society. As soon as I got my drivers license I began pet sitting for
teachers, family friends, and colleagues, finding lots of joy in making their
furry friends happy and getting to be a little part of their lives. When I'm
not petting puppies or cuddling kitties, I'm an actor! I particularly love
classical theatre and Shakespeare. I look forward to receiving lots of from -
and giving lots of love to - all of the sweet pets I get to work with!".

Betsy grew up in Michigan where animals were always a big part of her family! She
grew up with a dog, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, hermit crabs, and fish. Her and her

"I live in Rogers Park with my husband and two young sons, a crazy 4
year-old German Shepherd - Suki, and a beautiful Maine Coon cat named
Yoshi. I enjoy meeting and caring for so many sweet and fun dogs, and
experiencing their great spirits and personalities. When I am not walking
dogs, I am probably running or working on knitwear, fashion or other
creative projects."

“I’ve always loved dogs. As a child I was always bringing home strays, and
would eventually find their owners. It’s something I still do today!
Volunteering at the shelter and fostering dogs is very rewarding. I love
when I can reunite an owner with their lost dog or cat, foster a dog until
they find their forever home, or help a sick or abused dog become well
