Ashley, Owner 
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! 
Alex, Pet Sitter
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!

Juanita, Pet Sitter
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 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! 
​Hi everyone, my name is Marisa and I am very excited to be starting a new chapter with Pooch Scoochers! I come from being a manager at PetSmart, where I gained a lot of knowledge and experience in taking care of your fur babies! I have 2 very spoiled cats of my own, and my roommate has a dog! I am a New Jersey native and moved to Philadelphia in September of 2019. I can't wait to meet all of your fur friends, I just know we will have a great time! 
Hi, I'm Stow! I've loved animals since I was a baby and grew up around cats and dogs. I have two dogs named Winnie and Max at my dad's, and a beautiful cat nephew named Joey who is basically my pride and joy. I'm currently a Junior at Saint Joseph's University where I am majoring in Marketing and Graphic Design, and am also a Division 1 tennis player. I love walking for Pooch Scoochers because I feel it is so important to have someone who cares about your animals take care of them throughout the day, and everyone here is exactly that way! I know I would want someone to treat my animals as their own, so I try to do that with every single animal I have the pleasure of visiting!

Hi, my name is Julia! I recently moved to Manayunk after graduating from Gettysburg College in 2021with a degree in Health Sciences. In addition to being a pet sitter with Manayunk Pooch Scoochers, I also work at a physical therapy clinic as a PT aide! Since my own family pets live with my parents in our hometown of Mechanicsburg, PA, I love getting to take care of your pets as I would care for my own two dogs, Daisy and Belle! 
Hi, I'm Nick! I joined the Pooch Scoochers team summer of 2021 and I'm very excited to work with such a wonderful group of people! I'm a criminal justice major from Temple University and graduated in 2020. I'm very passionate about animals and have had pets my entire life! I currently have a boxer named Stella and a french bulldog named Vito. I've lived in the Philadelphia area my entire life and currently live in Manayunk! Some of my hobbies include biking, hiking, playing sports, fishing, and spending most of my time outdoors with my family, friends, and animals!
