My name is Shelayne Fico and I am the owner of All Things Pets. I moved back to the USA a few years ago after helping run a small business abroad and started watching and caring again for neighbors’ pets. I love animals and am passionate about their love and care, so I expanded to opening my own business.
My whole life I have been involved with animals. From as far back as I can remember I was bringing home every stray cat or dog I found telling my mom and dad “Look who followed me home! Can I keep him/her?” Most of the time they said “NO”, but sometimes they said “YES”!
I’ve owned cats, dogs, birds, fish, turtles, a horse and even two raccoons. I’ve taken care of so many pets including exotic ones that I’ve lost count. As a petsitter I am often asked, “Which pet is your favorite?” In all honesty, I have to say my most favorite pet is the one I’m with at that moment. I love them all! Each has their own unique personality and a quality that pulls at my heart strings!
My parents said that for as long as they could remember all I ever talked about was horses. They have no idea where I got that from as no one they knew and no one in our family had horses. I was privileged to be able to own my own horse as well as ride and take care of other people’s horses for many years.
I have lived in numerous countries around the world and it seems wherever I am, I’ve been called upon to take care of someone’s pet, so it only made sense that I start my own pet sitting business
