Our Team

Deborah, Pack Leader

Deborah is the leader and owner of the 4 Paws Sake Retreat.
With over 15 years of experience in the veterinary industry, she brings with her a wealth of experience. Her commitment to animal care, and her dedication, compassion, and client interaction keeps her connected to the pet industry world. Coupled with this, Deborah's pet care standards are second to none.

Deborah has a remarkable ease and connection with animals and is often heard saying: "Of all the talents bestowed upon me, the ability to communicate with animals is my greatest gift." To say she loves animals cannot encapsulate her feelings about them, she has loved animals with such passion all her life and remembers fondly every animal trusted to her keeping or crossing her path.

Deborah's varied experience combined with her avid pursuit of continuing education in multiple areas, allows her to provide the highest level of care for your beloved pets. She has spent the last 18 years working with various rescue organizations throughout Canada, ensuring the next forgotten soul finds their forever home. Deborah looks forward to getting to know your furry friends.

Beagle Paws Rescue is very near and dear to Deborah. She has spent the past 15 years rising to the occasion when the call comes in "We have a beagle in need, can you help us?", leaving no stone unturned in her quest for the next forever home. Deborah has opened her heart to many animals in need of urgent treatment. Often their last hope, she has spent countless trips to the Veterinary Emergency Hospital in Toronto, anything from a specialized test, surgical procedure, or even chemotherapy treatments. Often providing a last chance for the lost soul only to say: "There is no greater gift than to know you earned an animal's trust."

She currently shares her home with one cat and three beagles. Her house is always filled with wagging tails and a purring attitude, and that's the way she likes it. Deborah has a very busy life but always finds the time to enjoy a friendly game of baseball, travel, or just enjoying the great outdoors. She may also be seen in the neighbourhood running or walking her beagles.
