Hi! I'm Jacklyne Tesoro and I am the founder and owner of San Gabriel Valley Pet Care. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a connection with animals. While growing up in the San Gabriel Valley, my family had many pets including: rabbits, a snake, birds, hamsters, rats and dogs.
At the beginning of my college career in 2007, I found my passion for taking care of animals and started pet sitting on a part-time basis. In 2013, I earned a Teaching Credential and Masters Degree in Education and went on to teach for 2 years. I soon realized that I wanted to go back to working with pets and that I needed to follow my passion.
Finally in early 2015, I made the decision to start my own independent dog walking & pet sitting business, San Gabriel Valley Pet Care LLC and I haven't looked back ever since! Because I am a long time pet owner, I always wanted to keep my pets at home, where they are most comfortable. So, I wanted to offer services that make the most sense for the pets and their owners.
I think it's important to give back to our community, so I started volunteering in July 2015 at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society in San Gabriel, CA. Its a way for me to give back to the animals. I help walk and socialize the dogs at the shelter while they are looking for their new families to adopt them.
