Kristine, Dog bather/Daycare Attendant

I am a bather/dryer/daycare attendant . I’ve always been passionate about animals, domesticated and wildlife. They make me happy. I love music, make up, tattoos and caring for animals. We have cats, dogs, fish and a bunny.

Vince, Daycare Attendant

Vince has been with Furry Paws since 2015; and is primarily the daycare attendant (while also giving giving the occasional bath). Since childhood he has been an animal lover, caring for mice, cats, ferrets, and even a lizard.  When not at Furry Paws, you can usually find him on stage. Vince is a local actor in Rochester.  And not just with the furry ones; Vince has been an advocate for those who can’t advocate for themselves. As a performance educator with Impact Interactive, he engages with companies and schools to encourage dialogue about social issues and promote understanding, through interactive theatre.

Joe, Dog Bather + More

Hello my name is Joe Ford I joined the Furry Paws family August 16th 2022. I am a floater and my duties are to bathe, dry, take the fur babies to the bathroom and whatever I am able to do to help! I have always had animals my whole life. Montana is in the picture with me. We also have 4 cats & many others throughout our lives.

Jade, A Little Bit of Everything

My name is Jade (they/them pronouns please!) – I do just about anything except giving the haircuts! You’ll typically see me doing reception, bathing/drying, obsessively cleaning/tidying, or expressing anal glands. While I don’t have any dogs/cats of my own currently, I am the proud owner of 1.5 guinea pigs. Feel free to say “Hi” to our shop piggy, Henry, whom I lovingly fight for shared custody of with my fellow coworkers. I’m food motivated, rowdy, definitely the funniest one, and offbeat.
