Anne-Marie Kaden has been working in the animal husbandry sector since her early years in college. As a graduate of Virginia Tech, where she earned her B.S. Animal Science, Anne-Marie has worked for both small and large animal veterinary hospitals, managed private equestrian barns and taught children's riding lessons. She grew up in Virginia in a home that bred Rottweiler dogs where she assisted in their daily care, veterinary needs and litter delivery and care.
With her background in animal care and veterinary medicine, Anne-Marie is uniquely qualified and comfortable caring for animals of all shapes, sizes and needs. She can safely handle nervous animals, administer most medical care (including oral and injectable medications, first aid and emergency care) as well as recognize potential safety and health hazards long before they become a concern for owners.
Anne-Marie and her husband Ian moved from Gaithersburg, Maryland (just outside of Washington, D.C.) to North Carolina in the summer of 2006 following their wedding. They were looking for a slower pace of life and a happy medium between family in Maryland and Florida. After the birth of their children, Anne-Marie helped supplement the family income by pet sitting for friends, family and neighbors. Now that both of their children are in school full-time, Anne-Marie has decided to build her business around her passion for caring for animals. Together, Ian and Anne-Marie have found a strong sense of community in southern Wake County, NC where Anne-Marie has volunteered on numerous community board or directors and they are both active in their local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts organizations.
Anne-Marie is eager to meet new clients and develop lasting relationships with owners and pets alike!
