Welcome to Best Friends Gaithersburg

Hello! I’m Vanessa, and my journey with Best Friends Pet Care spans over a memorable 15 years. My adventure began in Maryland where my first job was with Best Friends. Though my path diverged towards human care as a certified nursing assistant, my heart always remained tethered to the well-being of animals. This unwavering passion led me back to where I truly belong – caring for our furry friends at Best Friends. At home, my world revolves around my adorable fur family: Luna and Nala, my loyal dogs; Bella, my charming cat; and Bubbles, my delightful Guinea pig. We are excited to meet you and extend the same love and care to your cherished pets. We look forward to seeing you soon!
