The Pet City Family
Our staff at Pet City of Fort Collins are knowledgeable, eager to help, and above all, passionate about animals!
Meet our staff:
Kären is the manager here at Pet City. She loves being around the Pet City puppies but loves matching them with their forever homes even more. Her pets growing up were named Catnip and Bimo. She now has a crew of four dogs, Fiona the Whoodle, Leila the Cocker-Yorkie, Simon the Morkie, and Genevieve the Cocker Spaniel as well as two cats and two birds. A Fort Collins native, it’s no surprise that Kären enjoys being outdoors, whether she’s camping, hiking, or spending time on her deck. She also enjoys spending time with her family and reading and hopes to one day work just 40 hours a week!
Erin is our assistant manager here at Pet City. She’s worked here for 8 years and loves being able to pair families with the right pets and make sure our animals are healthy. She has two dogs from Pet City who are kept company by three other dogs, five horses, five cows, a cat, and two bearded dragons! Originally from Central City, CO, Erin’s interests outside of work include rodeo, skiing, basketball, spending time with friends and family, and watching the Broncos and the Avalanche. In the future, Erin hopes to continue working with animals as a veterinarian, in the cattle industry, or at an equine rehabilitation facility after college.
