Owner & Operator
I’m Adriana, owner and Chief Pet-Loving Officer at Shoreline Happy Paws. I have been a Professional Pet Sitter for more than 12 years.
Ever since being a little kid, my family remembers me loving spending time with our dogs and farm animals all day long.
After leaving school, I started dog walking for a living in 110-degree heat in Qatar, my former home for six years. We were very successful and were the first full time pet sitting service in the whole country.

How do we hire?
“Any Pet Care Professional we hire, is a PCP I would personally trust in my own home taking care of my pets when I travel. And when they do care for them, they do a wonderful job and keep me updated via the mobile app. I always hire with that in mind. Even during 2021 with the great difficulty every business had hiring, I preferred to lose business being understaffed than hire the wrong person out of desperation. After all, we are sending our staff to clients homes. Their home is their temple.” – Adriana, Owner
We have a 12-step vetting and hiring process to carefully choose who will be a great addition to the team and explore in what aspects of the job they would thrive the most.
All Pet Care Professionals at Shoreline Happy Paws LLC complete a Federal and State Background Check before starting Orientation, Training, and Shadowing before their first service on their own.
This could be you!
