Hi everyone! I am so excited that you are here learning a little bit more about us! My name is Ashley Fennimore, and I am the owner of Manayunk Pooch Scoochers! I am a St. Joe's alumni, #thwnd! I went to school loving what I thought would be my forever career teaching special education & art education...but as we all know, things never turn out the way we plan! I was finishing my minor in ceramics when I needed a part time job. That is where I met Austin, the original owner of MPS! I worked for Austin as a dog walker and pet sitter for several years. I found the ultimate dream job that I wasn't even originally setting out to find. This job was being around dogs and animals on a daily basis. Although it wasn't my original plan, when offered with the amazing opportunity to take ownership of Pooch Scoochers, it was the easiest decision I have ever made! The only thing better than spending my days with animals, is hearing how happy their moms and dads are when they come home from work every day! It is a pleasure to be able to provide our animal loving community with reliable and affordable pet care. When I am not with your fluffy buddies, I am likely learning how to raise my two little boys (humans, not puppies) with my husband, Corey!
Manayunk Pooch Scoochers was founded in 2007, making us one of Manayunk's oldest and most experienced pet care service providers! Pooch Scoochers is a woman owned and operated small business that has grown tremendously throughout the years due to the exceptional services that we provide! Take a look below to read a little bit about who we are....
Hi, my name is Juanita and I am so excited to be a part of the Pooch Scoochers family! I have been around dogs and other animals my entire life, and now I have 2 furry friends (dogs) of my own, Milo and Olive! I grew up in Northern Virginia, attended Penn State, then moved to Philly in 2018. I enjoy spending time outside, volunteering with animal rescues, and giving back to the community in other ways, as I am currently pursuing my associates degree in Nursing from CCP! I cannot wait to meet your fur babies and love & take care of them as I would my own!
Hi! I'm Mike and I love working for Pooch Scoochers! I'm originally from Michigan, and my parents got me my first dog when I was 10 years old, a Yorkie-Maltese that I named Charcoal. I walked my neighbor's dogs in Michigan before moving to Philly in 2017. I found Pooch Scoochers soon after and I've loved caring for our client's animals ever since! I am also a musician, so when I'm not walking dogs, I'm playing gigs, creating music, and teaching young music students. I look forward to meeting you and your beloved pets soon!
Hi! I'm Alex! I was raised with the love of dogs and cats my whole life. I currently have four dogs and a cat! It's a full house, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Animals have a special way of making every day better! I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and graduated from The University of the Arts. After graduation, I started working for Pooch Scoochers! While I love mixed media and appreciate art deeply, I have found a passion in caring for animals. I can't wait to meet all of your fur babies!
Hi, I'm Shannon! I am an animal lover through & through and I love walking with Pooch Scoochers. I've loved animals from a young age and I grew up with all sorts of pets! I currently have 1 very spoiled kitty named Omelette & two dogs! I'm from Downingtown, PA, and I graduated from West Chester with a degree in Communications. I moved to Manayunk with my partner in 2020 and have completely fallen in love with the neighborhood! When I am not caring for your beloved pets, I am gardening, or doing yoga, or crocheting handmade goods for my little online business. I can't wait to meet you and your furry friends!
