Meet The Owner
My name is Shaela Pizzulo, I am the proud owner of Care Fur Pawz Ltd. My passion is animals and providing the best care possible. I live for the animals and understand that their beloved parents can't always be there. I want to build relationships and trust with each family and ensure the safety and happiness of your fur babies while in my or my team's care. It's my goal to bring professional pet care into the comfort of your home. Bringing that unique personalized touch to pet care is my specialty and I would love to show you and your fur families that experience.
Since I was little I knew I wanted to own a business and work with animals. At the age of 10, my dogs Mia and Checho, both Chihuahuas, had a litter of puppies which was not really the plan. Even though we did not foresee this, I was ready to dive all in and help however I could. I got the honor of helping her deliver the puppies and it was such an amazing experience. I started pet sitting at the age of 12 and at 19 I got my first Pet Resort job working as a Guest Attendant. I gained experience with feeding a 100+ capacity of animals, watching daycare groups of 15+ dogs, and completing nail trims and baths for many different breeds and sizes. After a year of being a Guest Attendant, I became the morning Manager and made it my mission to be the best pet care provider I could be and instill that in others as well.
Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I had to leave my job at the boarding facility. During this time, I attended Arapapaoe Community College for my Associate’s in Business Entrepreneurship. I decided to put this degree to work after pet-sitting for a friend. They only asked for me to check on his dog 3 times a day but on one night’s evening visit this pitbull’s eyes tugged on my heartstrings and I had to stay the night. How could I say no? That night I realized this is exactly what I wanted to do and got started creating my business and launched it in May 2022.
I am thrilled to announce that I am attending Animal Behavior College for Dog Training. My main focus is to build the human-canine bond through positive reinforcement and force-free training methods only! I want to show both the dog and their owner that training can be fun while developing a positive relationship between the owner and canine.
Being an animal lover myself, I own a Nash the Pit Bull Mix, Priscylla the Boston Terrier, and Daisy the Tabby. I love being outdoors doing activities such as hiking, biking, paddle boarding, and training with my own dogs with my husband.
We look forward to meeting many new families and helping them with their specific needs!
