My name is Jane Accardo and I am the sole owner of Antics Pet Care
I am a native Oregonian and attended Willamette University. I worked many years in the food industry before I decided to start my family and spend eight years living overseas and in Massachusetts and Texas.
Upon returning home to Oregon, I decided it was time to focus on my true love in life: dogs. I began as a pet sitter part time in early 2000 helping
another pet sitter and by January of 2001 it was time to completely devote myself to my own work as a pet sitter and dog walker. When trying to find a meaningful name for my new full-time venture, I came up with merging the names of my now deceased greyhounds: Annie and Ticket. Thus, the name An-Tics. I found the word to be very descriptive of this profession.
Life for me wouldn't be complete without the companionship of my dogs and it is my desire to do whatever I can to help any animal in need and to spend time helping improve the quality of life for all pets. It would be my pleasure to get to know and care for your own furry family members.
When I rescued my first two greyhounds, I became involved with Greyhound Pet Adoption NW (formerly Greyhound Pets of America NW), serving on the Track Liaison Committee, assisting in the adoption program, and walking and washing the kennel greyhounds. I was also a Board Member of GPANW. From then on, I have opened my heart and home to many greyhounds. I have also rescued three German Shepherds, adopting two for myself and re-homing a girl with my sister and a young male with a retired couple in Montana.
My most recent animal cause is for the Galgos of Spain. These are Spanish hunting dogs much like a greyhound. They suffer a horrible fate. I have traveled to and volunteered at Scooby Medina, a sanctuary that rescues, saves and re-homes these beautiful dogs.
Sian Laird is a trusted friend and associate who will be handling many of my West Linn based clients, as well as serving as my backup in times of need. She has worked many years as a Veterinary Technician and volunteers/fosters for various animal rescue groups, to include the Cat Adoption Team in Oregon.
