Hi, I’m shannon mCcain!
I’m the new owner of The Pet Nanny In-Home Pet Sitters! I’ve lived in Tucson practically my whole life, and always been an animal lover. I currently have 3 dogs, 3 cats and a tortoise. I’ve worked in the animal care industry since I was young, with experience working at a local vet clinic and boarding facility for over a decade. It has always been a dream of mine to open my own pet sitting business and I came across the perfect opportunity when I found The Pet Nanny!
The Pet Nanny was started in 2010 by Teresa Bruner, a friend of the animal community. Since then, The Pet Nanny has grown to become the highest-quality in-home professional pet care company in the Tucson area, of which we are extremely humbled and grateful to be. Over the years, we’ve responded to the needs and worries of busy and travel-inspired Tucson pet owners who were looking for someone to provide the peace of mind they needed while they were away. After almost 12 years of running The Pet Nanny, Teresa decided it was time to step away and start a new chapter of her life by selling the business.
I have been working closely with Teresa to make this a seamless transition and I am so grateful for how much I have learned from her. I am excited for this new opportunity and to continue to offer the same high quality in-home pet sitting services the pet community has come to expect from The Pet Nanny! The bond built between an animal and their caregiver and the comfort we provide them is my favorite aspect of pet sitting. I look forward to meeting our fabulous clients and their furbabies and caring for them when their owners can’t be there….Even though my own animals will be super jealous when I get home!

I’ve lived in the Tucson since 2006 and have a great passion for the Sonoran Desert. I grew up in Florida but I’m very happy to call Arizona my home. My other great passion is my love of animals! Especially Dogs. I’ve had Birds, Cats and Dogs my whole life and my last three and current one is a little Yorkshire Terrier, Elsi. I would love to someday establish a Yorkie and small dog rescue in memory of the ones I’ve loved. To pamper and care for the way mine were. I’m honored to have the opportunity to sit with, love, and care for your pet.
I’m a third generation Arizona Native and a lover of all animals. I really enjoy working with The Pet Nanny where I care for each pet I visit with love and respect. I have had many pets over the years including dogs, turtles, fish, snakes, and birds. I am a proud mother of two daughters and two dogs. My pets are members of the family and are nearly always found on my lap or right by my side.
Hi, my name is Esmeralda! I’m an energetic animal lover and I’m ready to be your furbabie’s new pal. I currently work at a local vet clinic where I’ve had the chance to meet and learn about all different breeds. Each time I take care of your baby, I will show them as much love and fun as my own, giving them anything they need. I will cuddle, play or walk them, anything to keep that purring going or tail wagging! I look forward to caring for your babies.
I’m a Tucson native recently relocated back to the Old Pueblo after 5 years in D.C., followed by a year in Santa Fe, NM. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing tennis, and experiencing the great outdoors. I’m the proud owner of a spirited corgi, Luna, who provides no shortage of laughs. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!
I am a retired elementary school teacher. I love and have worked with pets my entire life. I have experience with animals from the tiniest 3 lb. Teacup Chihuahua to the goliath 130 lb. Great Dane. I have a special place in my heart for abandoned animals and animals with high needs. I have adopted 2 tripod dogs and other animals with varying levels of medical needs. I truly care for all living creatures and will go above and beyond to make sure they are cared for well. My current fur babies are both rescues, Tillie and Rogue. I look forward to taking care of your precious fur baby!
I am a retired registered nurse and have lived in Tucson since 2010. I’m a CPR
instructor and continue teaching classes in the community, and I also tutor nursing students online, but I consider pet sitting my main job at the moment! I’ve had pets all of my life and have many years of experience with the Humane Society here and with the SPCA back in PA where I’m from (mainly dog walking and foster care). My hobbies mostly involve the outdoors: cycling, hiking, running, swimming, golfing. I currently have 2 rescue dogs, Arthur and Cocoa, and I love cats as well and all other animals! I look forward to caring for your beloved pets!
I am a retired elementary teacher and have lived in Tucson since 1999. I am a lifelong animal lover and devoted pet mom. In the past we have had dogs, cats, rabbits, a bird, fish, lizards and desert tortoises. I have volunteered with and supported several rescue groups in Tucson. I currently have 4 dogs of my own. My pets are family members! I look forward to meeting you and your pets!
I moved to Tucson in May 2021 from Cincinnati, Ohio, and I absolutely love it! I graduated with a BS in Biology (Spanish minor) and am in my first year of Vet School at UofA . I will earn my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2024. I have extensive experience with animals such as working as a kennel technician, as a veterinary receptionist, volunteering at the Cincinnati Zoo, Vet clinics, growing up with a variety of pets, and shadowing lots of veterinarians. As a vet student, I would like you all to know that your pets are in great hands with us! All pets are cared for with upmost respect and care.
I’m happy to be a part of The Pet Nanny team. I have had and been involved with animals most of my life both domestic and wild. Working at both national and local level humane societies and as a former vet tech, I understand how important the human-animal bond is and that pets are family. My own pet family consists of three Aussies, Tess, Oz and Brodie, two cats, Latte and Tony and my beautiful horse Sedona.I look forward to taking care of your pet families as if they were my own.
I’ve always been an animal lover. Over the years, my children and I had numerous dogs, cats, birds and guinea pigs. Currently, I have an 8 year old mixed Shepherd, Mollie, and Peanut, who is a 9 year old Chihuahua.
Since I am now retired, I thought this would be a good opportunity to expand my love of animals by taking care of your pet “children” as I would want my own to be treated.
British born, but recently moved to Tucson to melt in the heat. I love to travel, and anything to do with the ocean……obviously the desert was the perfect choice to settle down 🙂 I also have the best road trip buddy in my 10 year old dachshund Rory. Though she can be a bit of a diva, she’s very much a big softie and loves her cuddles. I’ve always had a love of animals, and it seems they feel the same as most tend to gravitate to me, either wanting cuddles or to strike a pose for the inevitable photo op. I’ve looked after pups that need special care knowing that “a spoon full of peanut butter helps the medicine go down”. I’ve rubbed many furry bellies both here in Tucson and back in the UK, and look forward to meeting your fur baby for many more pets and kisses.
Catalina Foothills, Northeast Tucson, East Tucson, Midtown Tucson and beyond!
Dependable, kind, and caring. I am completely confident when I leave home that my cats will not only have their basic needs met, they will also get personal attention as well. I receive daily texts with photos when I am out of town, this is so reassuring. I highly recommend The Pet Nanny.
