daycare handlers

 
Tabitha Machado -Daycare Manager Tabitha started with Paws Abound in November of 2015 as a part time vacation boarder. She opened her home up to all our pups in daycare when they needed a comfy couch to sleep on while their parents were away. She fell in love with everyone and soon joined our team full time becoming our Daycare Operations Manager. She leads a hectic lifestyle raising two awesome children and when she's not cuddling with the dogs, she's rooting on her son in baseball or beaming with pride during her daughter's dance recital.
