Meet Our Staff
Shelby Richards · Front Desk Manager
“I love working at Barkefellers! It’s simply the best job ever! I don’t even feel like it’s a ‘job’ because I love what I do SO much! Meeting new doggies every day and being able to help out our amazing customers – I love them all!”
Shelby joined the Barkefellers staff in June of 2013. She is a home-schooled high school graduate who played basketball for 8 years. Shelby’s senior-year team placed 6th in the nation!
Growing up, Shelby had every pet you could think of. When she was 14, she began volunteering at a local kennel and from that day on she knew she wanted to care for pets for the rest of her life. Shelby has a King Charles Cavalier named Scooby, who is more of a baby to her than a dog!
When she isn’t busy managing the Front Desk at Barkefellers, Shelby loves spending time with family and friends and enjoying the little things in life. Nehemiah 8:10 “The joy of the Lord is your strength” is her life verse!
Shannon Strevels · Front Desk Manager
Shannon has been part of the Barkefellers family since November of 2013. She is a 2010 graduate of Roncalli High School and received her Veterinary Assistant degree at Harrison College in 2012. Before coming to Barkefellers, Shannon gained valuable experience over six years of working in the kennel and assisting with appointments and surgeries at a local veterinary clinic.
Shannon has four furry family members; Salina is a Corgi/German Shepherd mix, Bailey is a Lab/Pit mix, Champ is a Hound mix and Yankee is her miniature horse!
When she isn’t busy managing Barkefellers’ Front Desk, Shannon enjoys camping, horseback riding, four-wheeling, watching football, playing volleyball, spending time with her friends and most important to Shannon – spending time with her family and pets.
“What I like most about working at Barkefellers is the atmosphere. I love seeing the different dogs that come in for Day Care, to stay the night with us or for grooming or training. It’s the best feeling connecting with their owners and sharing our love for our furry family members. I wouldn’t trade working at Barkefellers for anything. It’s the best job there is and – who can’t have a great day when you’re surrounded by great people and all the dogs that come through our doors daily?!”
Lauren Calkins · Hotel Manager
“My favorite things about working at Barkefellers are getting to know the different characteristics of all the different breeds and getting to see the pets having so much fun in day care.”
Lauren has been with Barkefellers since September of 2009. She is a graduate of Southport High School and plans to attend college to become a pharmacist. Her fun-loving spirit and thoughtful nature are appreciated by her co-workers and guests alike!
Lauren’s pet care experience started early; first with the many pets she has had over the years and later as a Volunteer at The Paw Patch Veterinary Clinic. She has 5 pets – Sasslyn (Doberman Pinscher), Reggie (Bichon Frise), Ruby (coyote/Border Collie mix), Prissy (Labrador/Chow mix), and Alice (cat).
When she’s not working at Barkefellers, Lauren enjoys playing with her dogs, spending time with her family and boyfriend and trying delicious new restaurants.
