Allison is a student at Lansing Community College with hopes of becoming a  nurse.   She grew up with animals all her life, mostly dogs.  Simon, who recently passed away was one of her best friends ever that she can remember.  She used to read bedtime stories to him when she was a shy little girl.   Now she has a cat, Echo to read stories and pamper all the time.  She loves all animals unconditionally and loves that you share all your furry babies for her to pamper.

The new additional to her family is a new rescued hound mix named Ruby.

Dr. Erin - Executive Director

Erin has always had a love for animals, growing up surrounded by cats, dogs and other furry friends.  She currently has two cats, Jinx and Oliver, who share her home with her and her husband Gabriel.   She is a huge Michigan State Fan and has a PH.D in Fisheries and Wildlife from MSU, where she has gained a lot of experience caring for fish and working with wildlife in their natural habitats.  Erin enjoys everything outdoors, including hiking, kayaking, camping and running ...especially when she has a dog friend to go with!  She is excited to be a part of the Ruby Slippers Team and is looking forward to pampering your pets with lots of cuddles and special care.

In loving Memory  - 7/1/1987 - 7/17/2016

Katie was one of the founders of Ruby Slippers Pet Care and was a full time professional pet pamperer for Ruby Slippers for over 3 years.   She brought so much love to our family and shared all that love with the Ruby Slippers Family, the four legged babies she pampered and the two legged owners.

We miss you, Katie!


Quincy is admittedly a horse gal!  But loves all furry four leggeds and she is amazing with them all.   She is a very busy gal and now a graduate of MSU!   Now we are all wondering what will be next for her.
