Who We Are

We love animals here at Walks & Whiskers and have decades of experience working with them. You can trust us to provide a safe, comfortable, fun, and healthy environment for your furry friend. Whether it’s taking them for walks, coming by to feed them, or providing at-home care, the way we look at it is that they would do anything for us, therefore, we should do the same for them. Contact us today to let us know exactly what you have in mind for your pet's home care visit, and we'll be on our way to meet you! 

 

The Walks & Whiskers pet care team is made up of a great group of responsible, passionate, trusting, animal loving pet owners and we cannot wait to work with you! 

Meet the Team!

Lynda Gillin 

Owner

"After spending 31 years in jewelry I decided to take a leap of faith and throw myself into the pet care industry. Selling jewelry wasn’t giving me the satisfaction for the happy and healthy lifestyle I craved. I realize now how important being happy and living life to the fullest truly is after beating cancer twice. Due to this, I’ve founded Walks & Whiskers. As entrepreneurship is commonly known as one of the most difficult career paths to embark upon, the building of this company has been a dream realized."

"I have been pet sitting for over 6 years and I love being able to care for your pets in the comfort of your home while you're away! I enjoy walks, kisses and cuddles from any pet that's willing, I've even been kissed by a snake!"

Alyssa Gillin

“I love working for Walks and Whiskers because not only do we get to spend time with the pets but they get to have a friend to hang with while their owner is away! We love the animals and it’s rewarding to know we are helping care for someone’s fur babies.”

Elana Grindrod

“Working for Walks & Whiskers has brought me immense joy. What could be better than spending time with pets, and making their owners feel comfortable while away?” 

Julia Grist

"Taking care of animals is rewarding. They are always so happy to see you."

Aidan Kelly

"I have loved animals ever since I was young. After a long day there's nothing better than being able to unwind and be around animals, it's very rewarding knowing these pets count on me to be there and are happy to see me. I have fun getting to meet different pets and getting to know their different personalities. I love knowing I'm providing the service to other's dogs that I would want for mine."

Courtney LeBlanc

Manager

"One of my biggest passions in life has always been to help animals. I've rescued 3 dogs in the last 10 years and if I had more space in my own, I'd save so many more. We all have rough days and we all have different ways of coping. Mine is to be around animals and care for them, and this is more than just a job for more."

"I couldn’t picture a better way to spend the extra time that I have than to be with animals! They are so selfless and provide such unconditional love! I enjoy taking care of other peoples pets like one of my own and look forward to each and every visit! Walks & Whiskers has given me the opportunity to love what I do everyday!"

Zee Stewart

Manager 

"Working at W&W has given me the opportunity to help out in ways that most people would normally look over. It's a way to give back, taking care of family's loved ones, but also bonding with animals and making sure that they're taken care of and loved, and growing as a person, all at the same time!"

Johnny Vargas 

"I love this job because of my passion for animal care. Building relationships with the pets and their owners is a heartwarming experience that I love to be a part of. I love the outdoors and being active, mix that with pet care is just an amazing time! Everything is for and because of the pets, they deserve the very best! I enjoy bringing that to the table and making a positive impact while bringing peace of mind and joy to the pets and clients! Nothing can beat that!"
