Anthony is the founder and Owner of Paws On Durham Pet Sitting.  He's a native Texan, but moved to Durham in 2011 to work for Duke University's Nicholas School of the Environment.  While working for Duke, Anthony opened Paws On Durham as a part-time interest, but quickly realized that Durham's pets needed his services more than Duke did.   He left Duke, hired eight pet sitters, and has continued to grow the company to meet customer demands.  Anthony hasn't looked back since! Anthony is a 14-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force and was stationed in Germany, New Jersey, Alabama, South Dakota, Mississippi, and Texas.  Through all of his assignments and life, he's always owned pets and has been passionate about their wellbeing and safety.  From gerbils, hamsters, fish, cats and dogs, Anthony has always strived to provide his pets with a rich and loving existence.  In 2013, Anthony's lost his beloved pugs, Monty (15-years) and Lulu (10-years) unexpectedly, and in homage to them, has since dedicated the Paws On Durham mission to ensuring all pets cared for through the company are cherished and loved as faithful members of the POD family. Anthony enjoys traveling with wife, Liz, dabbling in the arts, and laying in sunbeams with his two sweet pug pups, Angus and Olive, and cat, Nico. He holds a Master’s degree in Organizational Management and is a Certified Professional Pet Sitter through Pet Sitters International (PSI). As with all POD pet sitters, Anthony is excited to meet new clients and is dedicated to ensuring your pets are cared for as his own!
