Julissa Rivera

Kennel Assistant

Hey! I’m Julissa, I’m a Dog obsessed mom of 1 crazy little boy and another insanely wild pup that just so happen to fit perfectly with us. My love for dogs started when I was 10 years old and I met face to face with this giant Bullmastiff! Not aware of the breed at the time, he was bigger than I was and definitely could have had me as a snack but to my surprise, he was as sweet as can be & I was determined to get him back home. The second his family saw him and the emotions started that’s when I knew all I wanted to do was care for animals and do the best I could to help any of them that mysteriously wandered their way into my life. I’m proud to say that I continue to keep doing what I love here at the spa caring for all the pups and one day hope to open up my own rescue and teach my son everything there is to know about lending a helping hand to a dog or any other four-legged friend in need. Also, I listen to rock music so that’s probably why I can deal with all the constant barking. It’s like going to a concert, music to my ears! Haha

Megan Vanhouwe

Kennel Assistant

Megan was raised 19 years in Vermont then moved to FL for college. She has her Bachelors of Science in Digital Arts & Design and an Associates of Science in Computer Animation. She has always had the love and passion for animals and now gets to work with dogs every day. To be able to grow up with dogs always around and now get to learn and grow within the pet industry is very exciting to her and she can’t wait to see where it leads her. Megan also enjoys arts & crafts, outdoor activities, photography, cooking/baking, listening to music, watching movies, learning new things, and hopes to maybe travel someday to states/countries she would like to visit.

Kailee Schaffer

Kennel Assistant

I was born in Knoxville, TN and moved to Florida when I was a month old. I graduated from Vero Beach High School. I knew from a young age that I wanted to work with animals and have never considered another career path. Helping animals and teaching people new things about their pets is a beautiful thing. In my spare time I really enjoy some down time to hang out with my family and friends. I have one cat named Lucipurr, a dog named Levi (who I spoil like crazy) and, my one and only partner in crime, Kaleb.

I look forward to working with you and your fur babies!
