Hi! I’m so happy you’re here. My name is Nicole, and I am the owner/operator of WedPets. On August 12, 2017, I married my husband, Dane. A year prior, we had adopted our first child – Greta, a German Shepherd rescue. Greta quickly became the light of our lives, and we couldn’t imagine not having her at our wedding.
It was upon seeking inspiration in how to include her that I determined there was a need for a pet sitting service exclusive for couples on their wedding day. There are so many moving parts on a couple’s wedding day that making sure your pet is fed, walked, and ready to be present in whatever capacity should be only a forethought. That’s why you should have a trusted petsitter who is giving your pet their undivided attention on what will be the biggest day of your life!
This is what I call “happy business” and as a life-long animal lover, it would be my honor to help make this idea a reality for you. My 9-5 job is a Communications Compliance Analyst at the home office for a reputable financial firm. I completed the coursework to obtain the Canine Pet Care Provider certification from International Boarding and Pet Services Association. I am a foster and volunteer for Stray Rescue of St. Louis, an animal rescue that is near and dear to my heart.
In 2017, my husband and I fostered 11 dogs (if you count a litter of 9 nursing puppies). Our last foster was a hurricane rescue, named Hurricane Ike, a chocolate lab mix. As love would have it, we “foster failed” – adopting him to be our own. We are now a family of four.
It was upon adopting our first fur child, Greta, that my heart was opened to all dogs needing forever homes. I want to save all the dogs, and will happily donate 10% of proceeds to Stray Rescue of St. Louis, or another animal rescue of your choice.
