Nadia Souza
Owner/Pet Care Specialist

Raised around animals my entire life, and couldn’t imagine it any other way! My childhood pets included dogs, cats, roosters, chickens, turtles, ducks, rabbits, fish – just to name a few! My decision to change careers & focus on pets came from my strong passion for animal well-being & happiness. My husband & I reside in Costa Mesa, along with our two rescue pups, Marley & Foxy. A graduate from Cal State Fullerton's College of Business, I am an active animal rights activist and pet foster parent. I am certified in Pet CPR & First Aid. I am also the Animal Welfare columnist for The Examiner. I enjoy spending time at the beach with my furry kids, taking them out on paddle boards & kayaks or any fun outdoor activity. I have hosted several fundraisers for various charities. My pup Marley successfully completed several obedience classes, plus he placed 2nd, twice in his agility training!

Sr. Pet Care Specialist

Ah animals, where do I even begin? My fascination with any kind of animal started at a very young age and continues to this very day. Any stray that comes my way is sure to get a helping hand. And there have been many! From butterflies to beetles, I love them all, but especially dogs. My passion for dogs is great, I love them. Before joining the Pooch’s Best Friend team, I was (and still am) Nadia’s pet sitter while she is out of town. I live for those sunny days spent peacefully with my pups by my side. In the future I plan on continuing my involvement in working with animals and progress to help them in any way possible. I strive to one day be able to open up my own dog rescue center, that would be my true goal in life. I am also certified in pet CPR & First Aid.

 

Brooke
Sr. Pet Care Specialist

Animals have always been such a huge part of my life! I've grown up around lizards, bunnies, fish, cats & dogs, and they all warmed my heart and are just such a big stress reliever. I am so happy to have joined PBF! My goal is to take care of every dog and cat as if they were my own & to really create a bond. I currently reside in Huntington Beach with my little beta fish and my blue nose pitbull, who I rescued and is such a big part of my life. I am currently attending school majoring in wildlife biology to one day work in a wildlife rehabilitation center.

 

Erin
Pet Care Specialist

I am a third year student at California State University, Fullerton and am originally from Fairfield, Ca. I am majoring Anthropology and hope to receive my masters in Primatology from UC Davis. My mom exposed me to a wide range of animals as I grew up. We fostered dogs and cats through the local animal shelter and sometimes would take on some strange cases like prairie dogs and sugar gliders. My goal is to work with chimpanzees in Africa.

 

Anne
Pet Care Specialist

I am so excited to be part of this team and even more excited to be part of you and your pet's lives. I have always loved all creatures and have spent a couple of summers at a ranch learning about farm animals including horses, pigs and chickens. Over the years, I have owned quite a few animals, including a couple of bottle-fed kittens, rabbits, and a guinea pig, but I grew up with dogs. Currently, Sophie (a black lab) and Auggie (a husky) are my girls at home. I LOVE hanging out with them every day and can't wait to meet the pets that you love so much!

 

Melissa
Pet Care Specialist

My love for animals is as endless as time. From the early age of 3, I have always been surrounded by pets. My sister and I always brought home strays and although we'd get in a bit of trouble, we would successfully convince our parents each time that the animal(s) should stay. It has and always will be my goal to ensure high-quality care in providing everything an animal needs for a happy and healthy life! I believe that animals are the ultimate companion. They're loving and kind and show no judgement towards people; animals just want to be equally loved in return! I adopted a 2-year-old pitlab mix named Brandy when she was just 6 weeks old and she is my absolute pride and joy. She's the sweetest and silliest girl I know. I literally treat her as if she were my child. Aside from having a dog of my own, I've primarily grown up with cats so I'm without a doubt a cat-lady, and proud! I'm currently majoring in Sociology and have high hopes to continue being an active member in working with animals/animal care in the future.

 

Anne
Pet Care Specialist

I am currently studying Zoology at Cal Poly Pomona in hopes of becoming a veterinarian or a wildlife rehabilitator/researcher. I grew up with dogs and cats but as of right now, I personally don't own a dog or cat. I’ve also worked with horses, sheeps, goats, pigs and rabbits. Something about animals has always given me a sense of peace and joy, so actually being given the opportunity to work with animals almost everyday is like a dream come true! I look forward to providing them with exercise and affection specifically tailored to fit their personalities, needs, and abilities.

 

Amber

Pet Care Specialist

Hi my name is Amber, and I am always that one person at the party making friends with the dog! Every time I see animals it just makes me so happy because they are most of the time so excited and filled with joy. I have always had this huge love for animals ever since I was little. I grew up mainly with hamsters and cats but recently had a dog who sadly passed away. I currently have two cats of my own who I give a lot of love to but hope to bring more love to other pets. Being around animals gives me a calm relaxing feeling and I enjoy building connections with each animal! I am very excited I am able to give love to other pets!
