Hi! My name is Amanda Schillig and I have proudly started Grateful Paws.
I am a wife, a mother of 2 amazing kids and 2 awesome dogs. I have spent the last 8 years working as a preschool teacher at an amazing preschool with wonderful childern, and I am now excited for this new adventure!
I have always wanted to own my own dog daycare since I was in my 20's but I decided to start slow and independently as a pet care giver.
I have worked in veterinarian hospitals in Asheville, NC, Seattle, WA and Destin, FLA. I have also put a lot of loving years into working at a kennel in Connecticut which also was a huge rescue advocate.
My first dog (as an adult) completely changed my life for the better and prepared me to be a mother in so many ways. She was a rescue and inspired me to follow so many dreams! Though no longer with us, she still inspires me even now with following my passion for animals.
If you are wanting your pet to get the love, affection and care they deserve while you can't be with them, then please contact me and we can discuss the needs and wants they deserve.
