Meet the Owner

Dana McKool has been a resident in the Dallas area, since 1981. A graduate of Texas A&M University with a business degree in Marketing, she had a successful career in Corporate Advertising for over 17 years. Although advertising was her day job, her love and passion was working with and rescuing animals. She spent much of her free time volunteering with local shelters and organizations. She affectionately became known among her peers in the advertising industry as the “animal lady”.

Grand Paws Pet Sitter - Owner Dana McKoolWhile in the corporate world, business travel was a major part of Dana’s life. Trying to find someone who would not only care for her pets while she traveled, but also love them like she did, was very hard to do. It was out of this need, and her love and passion for animals, that Grand Paws Pet Sitter was born. Her goal was to provide superior pet care with the utmost integrity and professionalism, while having fun along the way.

Dana and her husband share their home with two rambunctious, big dogs, three diva kitties, two hilarious parrots and one super affectionate snake.
