Sarah Zimmer

Sarah Zimmer - Owner / Manager

Sarah's vision for Philadelphia Pet Care combines professional client relationships, community involvement, and personalized care for each pet. This vision was shaped during her two and a half years as a dog Caregiver with the original Philapets. With up to 14 walks a day, in rain, snow, and blazing heat - Sarah never missed a visit. The experience taught her what the pets needed – a reliable person that is just as dedicated as their owner. She founded Philadelphia Pet Care Company in 2012.


As an only child, Sarah’s siblings included a German Shepard named Schnapps and her two rabbits, Oreo and Brownie. Her deep connection with animals grew when she rescued two Pit Bull type dogs - Ladybug and Seven.


Sarah has volunteered at the Animal Care and Control Shelter (ACCT) and the PSPCA. As a volunteer, she learned a great deal about dog handling from the resident animal behaviorists. She applies this knowledge to help her clients dogs overcome fears, anxieties, and other on-leash issues.


In addition to her love of animals, she earned her MFA in 2008 from The University of Pennsylvania. She creates digital, interactive installations with collaborate partner Kim Brickley and other programmers and makers at The Hacktory and Department of Making and Doing (DMD).

Scott Monaghan

Originally from Canada, Scott and his family moved to the Detroit area just a year after he was born. Scott spent the next 27 years in Michigan. After some trials and tribulations Scott decided to quit his job, tour around the country with his best friend/band for 2 months, and then moved to Philadelphia.

One of the first things Scott did when he got to the city was adopt his non-human best friend, Sophia Super Commander, a year old pit mix, from PACCA. The second thing he did was get a job walking dogs, caring for kitties and other critters.

When Scott's not enjoying spending time with tons of awesome animals "working", you can find Scott writing tons of music (he plays guitar and drums), riding his skateboard, or playing with Sophie and his three cats Gary, Bonk, and Skeletor. He has over four years of dog walking experience.

Arianna

Arianna is occasionally a poet and sometimes an artist, but always an animal lover.

She spends her free time taking long bike rides, hiking in the woods and curled up in a cozy nook with a book and her massive grey tabby, Pigeon. She grew up in a farm town, in the Philadelphia suburbs, surrounded by peach orchards and corn fields and was often spotted walking the lines of fruit trees with an English Mastiff named Tinkerbell, tennis balls and a knotty walking stick. She has been living and walking dogs in Philadelphia for five years.

She spent a summer working in a lost-cost vaccine clinic for cats and dogs and is also well versed in the various methods for tricking stubborn pups into taking their pills. She has fostered dogs ranging is size from a Pekingese to a large pit bull and recently began finding homes for the litter of kittens inhabiting her back alleyway and the abandoned house next door. She's excited to meet and spend her days with your furry friends and hopes that you are too!

Maddie

Maddie was raised in Bucks County in what looked like a modern day peaceable kingdom. Asanimal lovers, her family adopted rescue Tabby Cats, Seal Point Siamese Cats, Black LabradorRetrievers, Abyssinian Guinea Pigs, and an American Sable Rabbit. In addition to caring for herown pet siblings, she also looked after her friends and neighbors pets whenever they needed alending hand. In 2008, Maddie moved to Philadelphia to attend Temple University where sheearned a BFA in Sculpture. Since then she has primarily been based in Philadelphia, balancingbetween making and exhibiting her own work, arts administration, and coordinating group exhibitions at a collectively run art space in Kensington.

While renting in the city has allowed her to see and live in many different neighborhoods, ithasn’t provided her with suitable conditions to adopt a furry friend of her own. After missing thejoy that comes along with living with animals, she joined Philadelphia Pet Care Company to carefor other people’s pets. Providing personalized care and showering them with love and affectionas though they’re her own.

Charlie Cochran

Charlie is 30 years old and originally hails from southwestern New Hampshire, where he grew up with a succession of dachshunds and Labrador retrievers (and a family).

He attended the University of the Arts from 2003-2008, earning a degree in Writing for Film & Television. After graduation, he pivoted to music making and moved to Brooklyn. Four years in the New York gristmill was quite enough, and, in the spring of 2013, he decided to return to Philadelphia. He brought with him three years of experience walking dogs and caring for cats, and is looking forward to continuing his work with animals while pursuing an assortment of musical projects from his new home base in West Philly

Sean

Sean is a digital artist from Philadelphia and South Jersey.

Growing up, Sean's family household had pets a various times- mostly cats and a dog. As an adult, his living situations have usually made keeping pets a challenge. For over seven years, Sean has done pet sitting independently- for friends, neighbors, and colleagues that take extended trips. Last year, Sean helped rescue a litter of stray kittens from his South Philly backyard; found homes for them and is trying to domesticate their slightly feral mother. Sean enjoys biking and walking around the city and attends many art and cultural events.

Julianne

Julianne is a lover of all things dogs.

She rescued her Pit Bull mix, Lucy, eight years ago, and swears it was the best thing that has ever happened to her. When she is not spending time with dogs, she teaches Special Education in Philadelphia. In previous years, every summer, Julianne walked dogs on her summer break. She worked with many different breeds of dogs and cats. Working with animals is Julianne's passion which is clear to see once you meet her. Some of her other hobbies are volunteering, reading, exercising, and doing anything outside.

Caitlin

Born in Kentucky and later moving to Wisconsin, Caitlin spent much of her youth growing up with lots of surrounding countryside and a house full of animals and animal lovers.

She found her vocation in visual art and music at an early age and relocated to Milwaukee, WI, to pursue her BFA at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. While completing her degree in Milwaukee, WI, Caitlin was able to take a wonderful position working as a dog walker and animal caretaker for an excellent pet care company in the city. Here, she diligently worked with a variety of animals. From walking dogs, caring and medicating cats and even feeding bearded dragons and iguanas, she used her personal animal experience in a professional setting. Caitlin loves this line of work and is considerate of a pet’s needs and schedule! During this time in Milwaukee, Caitlin also adopted one large, orange tabby cat that she appropriately named Snacks. Her and Snacks eventually moved to Portland, OR, where she completed her MFA degree at Pacific Northwest College of Art, where she both studied and worked in administration for the college while maintaining additional freelance pet care positions. In Portland, OR, Caitlin rescued one more highly lovable furry friend- a Saint Bernard named Bear! After the completion of her degree, Bear, Snacks and Caitlin decided to make yet another move across country to Philadelphia for its vibrant visual art and music communities, where Caitlin now happily uses her 5 years of dog walking and animal care taking experience to work for Philadelphia Pet Care Company as well as working as a curatorial team member for Little Berlin gallery and an active exhibiting visual artist!
