Amanda is a recent graduate of The University of the Arts and loves theater almost as much as she loves dogs! She believes that spending time with animals is good for the soul, and has years of pet care experience.
Animals are my best friend. I’ve spent my life advocating for them and volunteering to care for them. Im fortunate that I now get to do it full time. There’s nothing like walking into a home and being greeted with so much unconditional love and trust. It is truly a gift that I take to heart and honor.
Ben Franklin once said, “Dogs are better judges of character than people are. If your dog doesn’t like somebody, you probably shouldn’t, either.” Well, actually, Ben Franklin never said that, but he should have, because it’s true. While Eric has lived in Philly for a very long time, he and Ben missed each other by just a couple years. But Eric does know that Philadelphians love their pets, and he wants to provide your furry family members with the care they deserve when you aren’t at home. A longtime vegan, Eric also loves music, movies, sports, politics, journalism and long walks around the streets of Philadelphia, preferably with a domesticated animal in tow.
