"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawaked."~Anatole France 

My name is Kelley, and I am the founder of PAWfect Pet Services, LLC.  I am a Professional Pet Care & Behavior Specialist.  I graduated from Creighton University with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology in 2002.  Focusing my studies on people and animals, including; Animal Assisted Therapies, Animals Roles in Society and conducted an Independent Research Project on our local Animal Shelters.

After graduating I pursued a few jobs in social work and continued to volunteer for animal welfare causes and keeping my love for animals close to my heart.  

In 2004 I founded a non-profit called Midwest Animal Welfare Society, focusing on humane education and animal rescue.  We partnered with the Pottawattamie County Animal Shelter for two years managing care plans for the animals in their care.  I coordinated their volunteer program, offsite adoptions and marketing events.  During this time I also became one of the founders of Iowans Against Breed Specific Legislation educating our community members and leaders on the negative affects of this legislation, while promoting dangerous dog laws. 

I finally decided to pursue working with animals full time in 2007 founding PAWfect Pet Services. Today I am so lucky to have a full time career working with animals and another sitter that shares my passion.  I was the President of the Omaha Pet Sitters Association for 3 years and won the Dotty Shantz Scholarship from Pet Sitters International in 2009.  I continued to network with rescue groups, pet trainers, while volunteering at the Nebraska Humane Society walking dogs, and assisting with their training classes.  

Currently am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and I am working toward my National Training Certification through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. 

I look forward to working together to help your dogs!  Thank you for taking the time to read about me!
