What started as a hobby and true love of animals has blossomed into something so much more. The longer we're in the pet industry, the more we learn that there is not only a need for what we offer, but many others like us who consider the care and comfort of our pets our utmost priority. From feeding a high quality diet to stimulating our pets mentally and physically and raising our pets to compliment our lifestyles, we know the importance of having one place to go to help us reach that goal. Our clients have become our friends, family and people who have put their trust in us to provide the quality care, advice and sometimes a shoulder to cry on.

A bit about myself. I am Michelle Hutchinson, head pet lover at KnowPlace Pets. When people ask me how I got into this business I always laugh because I didn't get into it, It got into me. What started as a way to make a few extra dollars watching co-workers dogs, somehow took on a life of it's own and in a few years KnowPlace was born. The last 20 years have been a dream come trust. Not only do I get to help people enjoy their vacations instead of worry about their pets, I get to help dogs and their people learn to understand each other and learn to work together. Often I am the last ditch effort before a pet is rehomed due to their behavior. When I'm not playing with my clients pets or my own, I'm researching new & better ways to be pet parents. What has grown from 5 (4 of which are still with us) clients our first year to over 400, almost 95% of which are referrals, heading into our twentieth year is amazing. You don't just hire KnowPlace Pets, you become part of the family.
