Shawna Yant / Owner

Hi! Thank you for visiting YHPC’s site. I’ve been a lifelong pet owner, and for the past fifteen years, I’ve been in the telecom and technology sector working for Fortune 500 companies in sales and marketing. Frequently I traveled for work which meant leaving my two dogs Keiko an 85 lb Akita and Gypsy a 90 lb rescue in the care of others. Leaving always caused stress and anxiety because I did not know who to trust to care for them on a regular basis. During trips, I would wonder when the person arrived/departed and if my dogs were ok. Given my background, I was aware of technology that could help answer those questions and decided to create Your Home Pet Care. I’m glad you found us, and hope you give us a try!

Angela Gottsponer / Managing Partner

Hello, I’m Ang. I was born and raised in Arkansas, and I am the baby of five. I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. During college, I was a student athletic trainer for the women’s department working with the track, basketball and soccer teams. Currently, I’m a sales manager for a leading identification and security solutions provider. I have a beautiful 65 lb rescue named Rob Roy and he’s a bull terrier mix with gigantic ears! We love to spend our days playing fetch and jogging although he hates the cold and rain. Due to this, he has a large collection of winter sweaters and rain coats! My top three favorites are Arkansas Razorbacks (LOVE), basketball, and young adult fiction novels.

Kari Neal / Pet Care Specialist

Animals have always been a part of my life and are their well-being is the driving factor behind my passion for working with them. I started working with pets such dogs, cats, reptiles, rabbits, and birds, but my interest for exotic animals grew when I received a degree in Biology from TWU and became the Director of Animal care for a wildlife ranch. I cared for a wide variety of animals; such as primates, marsupials, bears, zebras and much more various species. Currently, I spend my free time volunteering at the Dallas Zoo because there is no such thing as too much animal time in my world! My passion lies within my main objectives and goals as a caregiver for animals: giving them a voice, ensuring their safety and well-being, and brightening their day. As a pet owner, you can rest easy when you’re away knowing your animal is under the care of an experienced animal caretaker with the ability to read your pet’s wants and needs, while also addressing medical or behavioral cues. I’m active, energetic, experienced, and love enrichment based play, so I will give your pet the activity it needs. My animals are my babies and I will treat yours with the same love and attention.

Kassandra Schiver / Pet Care Specialist

You can call me Kassie. I am blessed to have a beautiful and supportive wife and healthy two-year-old boy. I also have a wonderful nine-year-old Greyhound that was rescued through G.A.L.T. named Hunter and a four-month-old kitten named Keanu. Hunter is special in the sense she is O.C.D. and has epilepsy, but she has responded well to medicine. We have lived in Allen for about a year and just love the area. We are all active and love going on family walks. My favorite walk is to Fairview where we get to see horses, cows, and alpacas. I grew up playing sports such as soccer and basketball and currently play in a women’s soccer league. Currently, I am a Detective with the Dallas Police Department.

Dani Haberly / Pet Care Specialist

My name is Dani Haberly and I’m a pet care specialist here at YHPC. I have two energetic, spotted lab mixes that I take with me almost everywhere I go. They lived with me in Austin when I graduated from the University of Texas, romping along the Greenbelt and splashing around in the cool waters of Barton Springs. Caring for them gives me great joy, and I wish to be with them always but I can’t. As devoted pet owners, we all feel this way but life responsibilities keep us out of the house and away from Fido. We go to work and out of town and we can’t always bring them with us. This is where I come in! I will be you for your pet when you cannot. I will provide them with loving attention, a full happy belly and some healthy exercise! I love your pet like you do, and I have been caring for animals my entire life so you can rest assured your fur baby will be in the best of hands.
