A native of Savannah, Georgia, Daniel brings his passion for petcare and animal welfare to San Antonio... Along with his 4 cats! He can't recall a time in which there wasn't a family member with fur, feathers, or a tail. At any given time there were dogs, hamsters, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, fish--with the occasional bug, amphibian, or reptile. It wasn't until 2012 when his first cat Teagan was taken home as a kitten, teaching him the Tao of the Tabby.
His interest in pet sitting originated in high school. Since then, he has been doing it on a personal and professional level in a variety of environments for over 10 years, having once managed his own sitting service in Savannah. Over the years he eventually gained a reputation for his affinity with feline care. Now he is thrilled to share his experience and passion with Metro Pup SA's team!

He has been surrounded, at various times of his life, with a Saint Bernard, Mastiffs, assorted cats, parakeets, snakes, snails, mice, Basset Hounds, a Bull Dog, a Golden Retriever, a Beagle mutt thing, and many more fish. His goal is to branch out and get a horse at some point in the near future.
Sean has traversed the great United States from his birth state of West Virginia, to Wisconsin, and a stop in North Carolina before finally arriving here in San Antonio. Sean is wildly excited to be joining such a passionate and professional pet care service as Metropup SA.
When not taking care of your fury family, he is taking care and teaching teenagers as a High School teacher for Incarnate Word High School. Sean strives to provide the absolute best care, whether it be a happy dog, goofy cat, cranky teenager, slitherin snake….unless that snake is Voldemort, Sean doesn’t take care of Voldemort……. or any other feathered, fur, scaled member of your family!
Sarah’s passion for animal began as a small child, growing up in Honolulu, HI. Some of her earliest memories were not just the many beloved cats in her home but also in observing the native wildlife across the island. At a young age, she dreamed of becoming a marine biologist. Throughout her childhood, her family would adopt rabbits, birds, fish, hamsters, and cats. Her friends always pointed out her ability to understand and communicate with animals.
Sarah was brought up in a military family, which meant moving throughout the United States. Sarah chose the San Antonio area to raise her children in 2004. Sarah is a mother of three, not including her fur-babies Jasper and Aires. Currently, Sarah is attending UTSA in pursuit of a Bachelors in Fine Arts and plans to become an Art Teacher. Sarah hopes that through art education she will show her pupils that art is more than aesthetics; and how it can open one’s eyes to deeper levels of perception and creativity.
Upon Sarah’s discovery of Metro Pup SA Dog Walking & Pet Sitting, she was surprised and delighted to have the opportunity to work with animals. The idea of being a shining light in her new furry-friends' day, while being trusted to do so by clients is a gift within itself.
