Shake a Leg! started in April 2010 and is based on the belief that our clients' pets needs are of the utmost importance. Our team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat clients and referrals.
I'm Suzanne Savage, owner of Shake a Leg! I started this business out of a bittersweet opportunity that was given to me. In 2010 I, along with a lot of other people in the country, lost my job. I was a Human Resource Manager for a Fortune 500 company. I had been in the customer service & big box retail business all my life. Not knowing what to do, I turned to my dad for advice. He asked me the age old question, "Now that you can do whatever you want with your life, what is it you truly want to do?" I took a deep breath and said, I would like to help people in some way, care for animals and run my own business. Wow! My inner self really spoke up :-) My dad simply said to me, "then do it."
With a lot of strong moral and loving support from my husband Chris, I have been successful with this business ever since making that choice. I have a wonderful small team of people that work with me who share the same work ethics, values and mission that I have. We love what we do!
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.

Hi, my name is Angie Allen and I'm pictured here with two of my dogs, Blossom and Emma. I also have a beagle-mix named Doogan, an orange tabby cat named Emerson, and chickens are on the way. I have always loved animals. I was that kid who begged my parents relentlessly for a puppy until I got one. His name was Jake. He was my first love. I have worked with animals for 20 years. I worked at a veterinary office for 15 years, a pet store, a groomer and, before I had my own, had fostered dogs. My life would be incomplete without my furry friends. Now that I work for Shake-A-Leg my circle of friends has become much larger! How lucky am I that every day I get walk with, play with, and snuggle with what I like to call "furry babies".

Hey! My name is Nick Ondras and I’m pictured here with my two dogs, Dozer (white boxer) and Lilah (smaller mixed breed). I also have two cats, Indy and Charlie. I have always loved animals, bringing that enthusiasm to a position catering to companion pets at PetCo before being recruited by Shake-A-Leg, and getting to rediscover my love for everything four-legged. Whenever asked why, I think of Jessica Chastain’s reasoning in “The Zookeeper’s Wife”: “You look in their eyes, and you know exactly what's in their hearts.” (team member since 2018)
