Tampaws is founded by Shawn Fera, a pet owner and animal lover herself. Shawn has owned a variety of pets in her lifetime, including cats, dogs, guini pigs, and even a sugar glider.
Not only is Shawn a pet owner, but she is also very involved with local rescues in the Tampa Bay area and has been a volunteer/foster mom for Pug Rescue Of Florida for the past three years. This experience has allowed her to foster and care for a variety of pugs and given her first hand knowledge with dogs of all ages and conditions. Shawn has experience with administering basic medical care, including insulin injections, special diets, eye drops, ear drops, bathing (to treat skin conditions), post and pre-operation surgical care. Shawn also helps to socialize and train her fostered dogs and won the award for the most involved volunteer in 2012.
Shawn loves animals of all shapes and sizes and she would be glad to put her experice to work by providing the love and care that your pet deserves.
"I am very relieved to have found TamPaws and Shawn. I was never comfortable trusting anyone to come into my home to care for my dogs until I met Shawn through her volunteer service with a rescue organization. She has tons of knowledge and experience with animals. Shawnhas always been available to stop over and feed/walk my two pugs when I need her to, even with short notice, and I love that she texts me updates on how my babies are doing. One of my pugs is somewhat skittish and never comes to me when I call her, but when Shawn came to meet my pugs, my skittish girl went right to Shawn when she called her. I knew immediately that Shawn and TamPaws was a perfect match to help me with my pugs! TamPaws rates are extremely reasonable, AND the peace of mind I have knowing Shawn is caring for my pugs is PRICELESS…."
"I have used Tampaws in the past, Shawn has always taken excellent care of my dog, and birds. I will be using Tampaws for every occasion I am away."
"Wonderful experience with this company. My dog was very well cared for. Highly recommend them to anyone"
