TEAM

Pets remind us of the important things in life: connection and love. Sarah’s Pet Care Revolution seeks to give back as much to them as they give us. We want to make your pets as comfortable as possible, show them how much we care, and keep their routine consistent even when their owner cannot be home. As the security of your pet and your home is important to us, each staff member has undergone a full criminal background check. Our core values include integrity, warmth, responsibility, intuition, and sense of humor. All of our staff members bring these attributes to their work in addition to experience with cats and dogs and First Aid/CPR training, ensuring that you and your pet receive the best service possible.

LESLIE CLAYTON, Operations Manager

Leslie originally hails from the city of Houston but has been living the good life in New Orleans for five years now. Thankfully she brought her love of all things animal from Texas with her and joined the SPCR team in the summer of 2019. Leslie has been working in the pet care industry for 10+ years and what originally started out as a part-time college gig has now blossomed into a life-long passion and career. She has had the pleasure of working with all kinds of animals from cats and dogs, to farm animals, and to wildlife in South America. But now she has a bit of a farm of her own with 4 special needs dogs at home that she adores. Her favorite part of working with SPCR is being able to bring comfort not only to the animals that she cares for but also to the humans who love them.

HANNAH JENKINS, Pet Expert

Hannah moved into New Orleans from Covington in 2015 to start her college education in the nursing field. As a student at UNO, now studying Civil Engineering, Hannah loves spending her spare time with her dogs in City Park and exploring every hiking trail, festival, and event this city has to offer. It’s even better if her pups can tag along–Hannah loves having animal companionship with her! She grew up with dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets…any furry creature you can think of, she probably has had! She received lots of first hand experience with many different types of dogs while working at a local doggy daycare for two years. “I’m a sucker for any animal; they win me over in one second flat. Being in college, working with and being around animals is so therapeutic because they’re so unconditionally loving and happy–it lifts my own spirits being around them.”

 

TERRY MONK, Pet Expert

Terry is an avid lover of all critters and a frequent rescuer. She treats her clients as if they are hers and says the highlight of her day is when she opens the door to a client’s home and the pet comes running to her as if they have been friends furr-ever. In addition to working with SPCR, Terry is the owner of Chez RuRene Bakery. 

CHELSEA DAVIS, Pet Expert
