Arikka Shephard

Receptionist

Hi I’m Arikka and I work in the Boutique at Pawsh Place. I grew up moving around in a military family but settled down for most of my childhood in Germany. Throughout my life I have had many different pets but have always had a special place in my heart for my chameleon, who really taught me how each animal has a unique personality and bond with their owner. When I am not at Pawsh I enjoy knitting, horseback riding and reading!

I plan on starting school in January to pursue a degree in Biology and Animal Behavior with dreams of attending McGill University in Canada for my Doctorate in Animal Behavior. I hope to own my own animal sanctuary for endangered animals one day because I want to make a difference in animal’s lives and the animal community.

I love working for Pawsh because each staff member shares the common goal of giving customers everything that they want and need. Everyone collaborates in order to give our clients the best pet care and strives to get as close to perfection as possible. I am proud to be a part of this team and can’t wait to meet you and your fur baby!
