Ella has proudly owned Ajax Pet Care since it opened over 30 years ago! She takes an enormous amount of pride in the facility and staff. Each staff member is handpicked for their patience, love and compassion of animals. Her two legged family consists of her three children and her EXTREMELY patient husband who is often surprised at the end of the day when he comes home to a new pet that is “just staying the weekend”. Once owning five rescue dogs at one time (yikes), her family is now down to their two rescues Pearl and Charlotte and their newest rescue “Carry On”. Having said that there is always a freeloader hanging around until they are placed in their forever home. So while most tend to leave their work behind at the office, occasionally she takes hers home, much to the delight of her family.
My name is Cecilia and I am 20 years old. I have been working at Ajax Pet Care for 3.5 years. I am currently studying Kinesiology at Ontario Tech University and am working towards becoming a Physiotherapist. I love working with all the dogs that come into work everyday and seeing their happy faces ready to play always makes the day that much more enjoyable!
Daveena is our supervisor and we couldn’t be more proud of her! She has worked with us since she was just 17 years old! In the 14 years she has been with us Daveena has gone from being a co-op student to practically running the place. Her passion for dogs is second to none. She will always go above and beyond to make sure your dogs stay with us is safe and enjoyable. If you ever have any questions, or are worried about leaving your pet then Daveena is the one to help you feel at ease. Her endless energy and positive attitude make her a joy to be around. Nothing (and I mean nothing) is too much for Daveena to handle. When not at work (which is rare) you can find Daveena hanging out with her two chihuahua babies “Tinkerbell and Mocha” and and her rescued potcake dog Nassau all the way from the Bahamas! Daveena is married to Will and proud mom to Peyton and baby Mackenzie. Her 4 legged kids are Nassau, Nitro and Nova.
Pre-Vet student with passion for wildlife and animal conservation. I have had past experience working in veterinary clinics, have recently completed my first year of veterinary technician, have worked and taken care of animals my whole life. Also well educated in gardening as I have worked many summers at a greenhouse.
Corinne is our dynamic receptionist who also doubles as kennel staff. Corinne is one of a kind to work with and will always be ontop of everything going on around her. She can multitask like you have never seen (great trait to have here) and always does so with a smile on her face. Corinne has the most contagious giggle you have ever heard in your life! She is very diligent making sure the dogs are well cared for and has an extremely compassionate nature. She has worked with us for over 10 years and is extremely dedicated to the dogs and her job.When not at work you can find Corinne hanging out with her favourite guy “The Cow” aka “Cowboy” who is one of our rescues Corinne has adopted. She thinks the sun rises and sets on Cowboy so who are we to tell her different.
I’ve just graduated Grade 12 and I’m looking forward to starting a Social Service Worker program at Durham College in January 2021. I’ve always loved animals and I have 2 dogs of my own, so working here with them is amazing. Even though I’m not going to school for something animal related, I hope to continue working with them in the future, any way I can.
Hello, my name is Lynsay! I am a second-year business student at Trent University. My love for dogs, and all animals realy, led me to my job at Ajax Pet Care. I have a senior Jack Russel Terrier named Princess that gets jealous when I come home smelling of so many other dogs! I have worked for Ella for a couple of months shy of a year and words cannot describe how much I love my job, my co-workers, and ofcourse, the dogs!
I started volunteering at Ajax Pet Care the summer of 2013, and officially became a staff member in October 2013. I have grown up at APC, and both the staff and doggy clients have become my family. As much as I love dogs, I am currently in my fourth year of study at the University of Toronto, doing a double major in Sociology and Women Gender Studies, with future hopes to be a lawyer and change the world!
Rachael has worked with us part time at Ajax Pet Care for four years now. When not working at the Pet Care Centre she can be found at her full-time job as an addictions counsellor or be found spoiling her dogs rotten. She loves the loud rambunctious dogs and likes to work really hard at creating trust and relationships with them.
