Meet the Owner

Dana at Grand Paws Pet Sitter, Dallas, texasDana McKool has been a resident in the Dallas area, since 1981. A graduate of Texas A&M University with a business degree in Marketing, she had a successful career in Corporate Advertising for over 17 years. Although advertising was her day job, her love and passion was working with and rescuing animals. She spent much of her free time volunteering with local shelters and organizations. She affectionately became known among her peers in the advertising industry as the "animal lady".

While in the corporate world, business travel was a major part of Dana's life. Trying to find someone who would not only care for her pets while she traveled, but also love them like she did, was very hard to do. It was out of this need, and her love and passion for animals, that Grand Paws Pet Sitter was born. Her goal was to provide superior pet care with the utmost integrity and professionalism, while having fun along the way.

Dana and her husband share their home with two dogs, two kitties, two hilarious parrots, and multitudes of fish.

"Dana, Your memorial brought tears to my eyes. Seeing the picture of Scooter, Tonka and Rascal all together just brought it all back, the happy and silly times with the three of them. Looking back, when we were traveling, I never had to worry about them when you were their temporary guardian. The trust that you engender was instant the moment we met you and proven time after time as you cared for our little furries. Andrew Carnegie said that one of the 12 great riches in life is to have a labor of love. In that sense, you truly have achieved the pinnacle of that richness. I know of no person who does what you do for animals and their owners with such caring and joy. Much thanks and love."

"Dana is the most responsible, thorough and compassionate pet sitter you could ever hope to find.  She took care of our ornery bulldog and loved him when no one other than family could.  When he passed away at the vet's office, I called her and she dropped everything, drove to the vet, and held a dead dog in her lap until he had safely passed over the "Rainbow Bridge."  What more could anyone want"
