Who we are and how Endless Wags came to want to serve the Kansas City pet community.
After graduating from Kansas State University, I moved to Nashville, TN where I discovered my passion for working with animals. I was an office manager at two Veterinary Hospitals in Nashville for five years and loved every minute of it, especially all of the furry critters.
Boston, Andrew, and I decided to move back home to Kansas City, Missouri and are excited to be closer to family. I brought back my newfound passion for working with animals and started Endless Wags.
Our mission is to provide essential services to pet owners with personalized care and unmatched trust and expertise. When you need someone to look after your furry ones we are there with professionalism unlike any other service around.
Currently servicing most of Kansas City, including: Westwood, The Plaza, Westport, Midtown, Mission, Brookside, Waldo, Prairie Village, and Overland Park,
Meet Our Sitters!
Manager / Pet Sitter
Alex was born and raised in the Overland park area. Both Alex's parents were animal lovers so she has always been surrounded by animals. She grew up with two Golden Retrievers and 4 cats. In high school, Alex found herself pet sitting and dog walking and discovered how much she enjoyed visiting different animals everyday! In 2011, Alex adopted a beautiful long haired cat named Ivy, and just last year she added a kitten named Neko to the kitty crew! Currently Alex lives in Roeland Park with her boyfriend and their white husky Dominick -- a big goofball who loves to give kisses.
Alex attended the Kansas City Art Institute in 2010 and has always had a passion for the arts and loves making pottery. She hopes to one day be able to own her own studio. She also enjoys playing guitar, and riding her bike.
