Lupe

Manager

I started working at Aardvarks in May of 2012. It was my first job and I honestly could not have asked for a better one. Its the best feeling coming into work and being greeted by happy barks and wagging tails, it makes me feel like I just walked through the front door of my house. Each dog is unique and quirky and I love getting to know them and having the opportunity to work with them. As an aspiring animal behaviorist, I hope to be able to continue learning all I can about these amazing creatures and one day change their lives the same way they've changed mine.

Sarah

Office Staff

I started as a dog handler in April of 2016 and fell in love with every dog I met. Being in the office I don't get to play with the dogs as much as I used to but I try my hardest to run out to the yards every chance I get and say hi to all my doggie friends. Despite my allergy to dogs, I can't help but let them cover me in fur and shower me in kisses.

Liz

Overnight Staff

I'm Liz and I am one of the overnight staffers at Aardvarks. I've been working with dogs for over a decade and have been a part of the Aardvarks team since July 2013. Years later and I still look forward to coming into work everyday. There is no better feeling than greeting the dogs and seeing their happy faces and wagging tails. Its a job that I miss on my days off and that I feel lucky to be doing.

Arjay

Dog Handler

Hi my name is Arjay! I come into Aardvarks like I'm coming into a loving home. I get to see the familiar faces of dogs, coworkers, and clients. Whenever I need a hand at work and everyone is busy, I get paws instead but I'm not complaining.

Christina

Dog Handler

After working at the shelter years previously, I missed spending time with these fury creatures and missed working besides them. Thankfully I found Aardvarks and became part of the team in August of 2015 and have loved everyday since. I love coming into work everyday knowing that they're as happy to see me as I am to see them.

I started working at Aardvarks in October of 2018. I've always enjoyed spending a lot of my time around dogs; they seem to understand me very well. I feel they have a lot to give us and we can learn a lot from them. I hope I get to learn everything they have to teach.

Laura

Office Manager

I started working at Aardvarks round 2007 at the original location on Benicia Rd. When operations moved out to Mare Island I was unfortunately unable to follow. My love for the dogs and the business won out and I rejoined the team in August of 2017. Being back at Aardvarks gives me the best feeling and I love coming into work everyday and hanging out with dogs and coworkers alike.

Leslie

Office Staff

Hi, I'm Leslie. I started working at Aardvarks in August of 2018. This is hands down my dream job. I just love coming into work and seeing all the dogs; they add so much brightness to my life. They are my babies away from home and truly feel like a part of my family. Caring for dogs has always been a huge part of my life even before I started working at Aardvarks. For years I have been very active in rescue groups and have been an active foster mom to numerous fur babies. I have two dogs of my own that I rescued as puppies, both pitbulls, Chevy and Junior.

Valissa

Senior Dog Handler

I started working at Aardvarks in January of 2013. I spend my days here playing with the big dogs and giving them my love. Over the years I've made close friendships with many of the dogs. The best part of the job is being able to work with the timid dogs and helping them gain confidence. It makes me happy that I get to be a part of their life and am able to help them grow.
