Vet's Assistant

    Hi, I'm Joyce I am from an animal-loving family.   I went to school and became a vet's assistant at 20 years old.  I now have a variety of animals all rescues.  I have birds, cats, dogs, fish, and a turtle.  I've had everything from snakes to pet rats,  My daughters were allowed to have any pet they desired because I enjoyed them as much as they did, maybe more.  A preschool teacher used to bring her class to my house so they could dance and talk to my cockatoo.  I love animals of all kinds. My mom once told me that all humans are born with a chance but some animals are born with no chance at all.  I just want to make sure more animals get a chance at a great life like us.

    Georgette Avitia

    My name is Georgette and I’ve had a passion for animals since I was a little girl. Ever since I was young I had a strong desire to help animals in need. Whether it was rescuing abandoned kittens, looking for opportunities to pet sit, or even just wanting to be involved with the care of animals. I believe the least I could do would be to help them live better lives.

    My name is Malik Morris. I'm 23 years old and grew up on the westside of Chicago. I've never worked with animals before besides working at the Field Museum. Working with PupStars has opened up a love of learning about life for all and cohabitating with animals. 


  • Mary

    Hello, my name is Mary

    I'm a mother of 5 children 3 boys ages 29,28,23 and 2 girls 16 and 9 along with 4 fur babies, 2 Doberman, 1 standard poodle, and 1 Chihuahua. My passion for dog grooming was sparked when I was 10 years old.  My parents finally gave in and got me a toy poodle and I insisted I learn to groom her myself. By the time I was 13 I knew this is what I wanted to do,  but sometimes life has other plans. I never gave up and  It wasn't until 2007 that I decided to get certified and make it my profession. I've been serving the greater parts of Chicago for 15yrs. From your neighborhood mom and pop shop to the big corporate stores, and I've seen it all. I absolutely love what I do and you know what they say... if you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life.
