Christy (In Loving Memory)

Christy found herself at a place in her life where the would rather work with animals than continue in the corporate environment. Before corporate America, she had been working towards a career in veterinary care and this job has allowed her to get back to caring for and working with our little furry friends. She is a certified veterinary technician, experienced in phlebotomy and animal injections. She has one cat named Stanley, but has had cats, dogs, hamsters, ferrets and fish throughout her life. She loves them all. 



Gina has been a devoted animal lover her whole life. She graduated from Cedar Ridge High School in 2016, and is now attending ACC for prerequisites to pursue a Career as a doctor specializing in diagnostic medicine. She moved from Los Angeles to Austin when she was seven, with her thirteen year old cat, Tingting. She has owned numerous dogs and cats, but currently has 3 cats and 1 chicken! Gina chosen career dovetails nicely with her love of animals and we are thrilled to have her on our staff here at Your Helping Paws. 



Noella has been around animals her whole life having been born into an animal loving family. Her parents own a pet grooming business and she has helped there ever since she was old enough to do so. Her family has pet pigs that live in the house, as well as llamas, ducks, and chickens (those live outside, of course). She can’t wait to meet your fur babies!



Sarah is another homegrown Austinite, born and raised. As a child she spent summers on the farm chasing chickens and playing 'King of the Mountain' with the goats. She has also owned or fostered dozens of cats and dogs, of all sizes and temperaments, as well as birds, gerbils, hamsters, sugar gliders, a hedgehog and fish. As a stay-at-home mom she has been blessed to spend the last fifteen years nurturing her babies but with all of them in school she is excited to share her love with your (fur)babies!



Alea became part of the Paws family several years ago when her family hired us to care for their 8 week old Great Dane puppy named Stella Blue. Alea is college student enrolled at Texas State University. She grew up in a household surrounded by animals (2 Golden Retrievers, a Great Dane, and an Australian Labradoodle) and was deemed "The Beastmaster” at 5 yrs of age because of her uncanny ability to wrap any pet around her little finger. Alea recently moved into her own apartment and became the owner of a lovely rescue kitty named Natalia, but still goes home to care for her parents ultra spoiled Great Dane and terribly adorable Doodle. 



Dawn has been loving and caring for fur babies for over 25 years, including pet rabbits and cats as well as some hamsters and toads too!  She reports that she is currently owned by 3 cats, one of which requires special medical care.  Dawn has rescued and fostered several rabbits with HRRN (House Rabbit Resource Network) where she also volunteered, and she has been a volunteer with the Austin Guinea Pig Rescue for over 10 years. 


Dawn has a wealth of experience providing special needs care to pets, including insulin, chemo, tube feedings and so on.  She covers Round Rock and the surrounding area.  We are so proud to have her as part of the Paws family!

Nicole Murray BIO_edited.jpg


Nicole has always had animals in her life, from the typical four-legged fur babies to more exotic reptilian companions, and everything in between. There were no shortage of opportunities to make friends with animals growing up in central Texas, and she learned early on how to make even the most skeptical and wary animal companion her closest friends in short order. Whether it was shepherding large breed dogs, calming anxious sugar gliders, or even befriending a wild road runner, she has learned the language of putting your companions at ease. Your pets miss you when you're away, but Nicole will make sure they're happy, healthy, and relaxed until your return; ask for her helping paws when you want the absolute best option for your little loved ones.
