Liv Pelletier - Events & Planning, Social Media & Team Manager

Hi! I’m Liv, I am a student at Salem State University and studying Education and Psychology to become a School Counselor! I have two dogs named Peanut and Granger, who I absolutely adore. I love walking and hiking (especially with an extra furry friend by my side!). My favorite breed is a Golden Retriever! I love working at H&C to help make families feel at ease when they are away from their furry (or scaly) friends, because I know I would want to feel the same way leaving my pups!

I’ve grown up with animals my entire life and am planning on becoming a veterinarian when I graduate from college, so this is an amazing opportunity to do what I love! My favorite days are when I get to be surrounded by animals!

Hi everyone! My names Jobeth but I also go by Jo. I have a 16 year old Corgi/Pug mix and two beautiful cats of my own! I have been in the animal care industry for 8 years now and have loved every minute of it. Ever since my first day I knew I would work with animals my entire life. No matter the day or the weather, they bring me joy and happiness without fail. Ensuring a safe, fun, trusting environment for your pets is always my goal! I look forward to meeting you and your pet family soon!

Hi! My name is Melany. Alongside, my career as a stay-at-home mum to two children I am a new and enthusiastic dog caretaker with Hound & Country. 

I have really enjoyed all of the dog personalities that I have had the pleasure of meeting! So much so that I question why I have human friends at all!?


Nicole Palmer

Hi, my name is Nicole/ Nikki. I am a mom of two daughters and two dogs. I grew up with a huge love for animals, and went to Essex tech/ formerly Essex Aggie for Dog grooming and animal science. I have a history of working in a vet clinic and dog grooming salons. 

I love that with H&C, everyone loves and cares for each animal in their care as if they were their own. I also love that I get to help ensure your family pets are safe, secure, and happy while in my care. It has always been a struggle of mine to leave my own dogs in anyone else’s care, so I love being able to be part of putting other families at ease, knowing their pets are safe and happy in their absence, and am honored to have the opportunity to do so.

I currently take care of my 20 month old granddaughter full time. When I get time off from her, I LOVE spending time with my furry friends. I’m also an avid pickleball player in my free time.
