My name is Breanna Wright. I am the owner of Peace For Pets. Since I was a small child I have always had a passion and interest in taking care of animals. As a child I would always bring home stray or injured pets because I cared so much for them. This passion and interest in animals led me to study wildlife conservation because I wanted to help protect animals that don’t have a voice. I graduated from Weber State University with a B.S. in Zoology (study of animals) and a minor in Botany (study of plants). My degree has allowed me to work with a great variety of wildlife including brine shrimp, many species of fish, neo-tropical birds, desert tortoises, kangaroo rats and even rattlesnakes in the Mojave Desert in Nevada.
To pay for my college tuition I worked at a few pet daycare/kenneling and self dog wash facilities. I gained valuable experience learning different ways to make dogs more comfortable when they are not in their natural environment. During the day most of the dogs seemed to be comfortable but at night I noticed that the dogs were more anxious than normal. I also felt really bad for older pets because kenneling is hard on them. For these reasons I decided to dedicate myself to others by starting my own business where I can treat other people’s animals as if they were my own. Being an avid traveler but also having two dogs and a leopard tortoise I understand a pet owner’s stress and anxiety when they have to take their pets to a kennel. I always find a friend or family member to take care of them in their natural environment but even this can be stressful finding someone you trust with your furry or scaly kids. For I don’t think of my animals as pets, but as part of my family. My services are for those who consider their pets as family members and don’t want to take them out of their home.
The good news for you is that you can always have a peace of mind when you are away from home knowing that Peace For Pets is there taking the absolute best care of your pets. I want to bring peace to you and your pet and do something I am so passionate about. I’ve always had a special connection with animals and would love to bring my experiences into your home.
In my spare time I volunteer for the Humane Society of Utah doing outreach, walking dogs and help in daily duties. I have earned a certificate from the american red cross in dog and cat first aid.
In 2017 Peace for Pets merged with Mountain Hounds and Hank and Bullets and will be continuing their services under the Peace For Pets brand.

Growing up I was the little kid who would come home and beg my parents to keep the kitten I had found that was abandoned, or the ferret that needed a good owner, or the bird that fell out of its nest. This path eventually led to a particular interest in animals and wildlife. I’ve spent a majority of my life with such a keen interest in animals and I feel like working with them has become second nature.
After graduating high school I decided to participate in an unpaid internship in Connecticut. It was at Wildlife in Crisis Center and I was to develop my skills and knowledge about animal rehabilitation, emergency care, general care, and animal behavior. Throughout the years I divided my time between class, work, and volunteering at animal shelters, raptor/wildlife rehabilitation facilities and pet sitting/dog walking. I’ve also spent a lot of time helping my friends train their wild little fur babies. This often includes troubled rescue pets. I find this very fun and rewarding helping friends gain insight into their pet’s behavior. I am proud to say I am certified in Dog & Cat CPR.
After spending much of the last few years working and traveling across the country I plan to return to school for a degree in Biology or Zoology. My goal is to have a career that surrounds me with and revolves around the creatures I’ve spent so much of my life loving and caring for. In my spare time I love to rock climb, snowboard, and hike in the Uinta Mountains of Utah.
My name is Caitlin Burris, and spending time with your furry friends is my dream job. Growing up, my best friend was a Labrador named Nelly. Over the years, our family pack grew with the addition of five more dogs and several cats. I loved being surrounded by animals and observing their intricate pack dynamics. I attended UCLA in 2011, where I studied Communications and Television. I dearly missed my animal friends, but I enjoyed taking courses on animal behavior. Now, having graduated and moved to Park City, I’m so grateful for the opportunity to spend my days caring for the happiness and welfare of your pets! I am proud to be certified in pet CPR.
In addition to working with animals, I’ve also enjoyed putting my Television emphasis to use. I serve as Director of Live Programming for the local television station, PCTV. Naturally, my favorite guests are animals- including boa constrictors, a four-day old calf, an alligator, a therapy kangaroo, and weekly kitty and puppy visitors. Between Peace for Pets and PCTV, I’m never bored and I count myself very fortunate that I get to spend time with such fun and interesting critters.
My other interests include photography, guitar, and enjoying the outdoors- skiing, hiking, biking, backpacking and camping. I love the mountain lifestyle here in Park City. It’s such a beautiful place to live and work!
My name is Alida Limberg and I love hanging out with my four legged friends! I’m from South Louisiana and have always been surrounded by animals! Growing up, my best friend’s mom use to work at the local nature center and would help rehabilitate animals, and if I wasn’t hanging out with her I was either helping my godfather with his horses or snuggled up with my two pups at home!
My family now has three dogs, including my best friend Bear who is now 6! She could spend all day at the park. She loves running around and playing ball, and when she gets tired, taking naps in my hammock! Helping care for your best friend is my dream job! I started pet sitting for friends and family in high school and I never thought that I would be doing it everyday!
My name is Cali Keyes I am 17 years Old and have lived in summit county my whole life. I was raised on a ranch running cattle and training horses. We have always had dogs out on the ranch and I have always loved working with them. I have trained or owned all types of dogs ranging from a Pomeranian all the way to a st. Bernard. I have a very strong love for all animals, which makes this the perfect job for me. Working for Peace for Pets is the best part of my day because I get to do what I love.
My name is Courtney Cruise, and I’m a senior at the University of Utah studying biology. Growing up, there were always dogs and cats in my house, and that’s what fueled my love and passion for animals. I started to work at different boarding facilities, a veterinary clinic, and began to pet sit after high school to gain more experience, and I learned so much about animal behavior and how to care for animals in different ways. Working for Peace for Pets has been no exception, and I love this opportunity to continue working with dogs and cats! In my spare time, I love to be outdoors hiking, paddle boarding, skiing, and snowshoeing.
Rachel grew up in rural Massachusetts surrounded by rugged forest. She always had a love for wildlife and animals, volunteering with her parents at the ASPCA as a child. Rachel went to college in upstate NY where she studied biochemistry and was able to study abroad in Kenya. It was on her study abroad trip that she had the opportunity to work with the Kenya SPCA as a veterinary assistant, working in the operating theater as well as in animal care. Rachel also spent time in France working as a WOOFer on a goat cheese farm, where she cared for the health and wellbeing of the herd. More recently Rachel has worked as a veterinary technician in northern California. Here she picked up many valuable skills in companion pet care and health.
My name is Nakita Harding and I have grown up around all sorts of animals throughout my life. When I was a kid I had 12 different species of animals ranging from frogs and lizards to dogs and horses. I am head over heels for anything with paws or claws. I feel so blessed to now be a part of Peace for Pets where I can make dozens of furry friends and really be in on the animal community. This dream job gives me the chance to be apart of animals lives again since all I can have in my home now is my happy little rat Magoo who lacks no attention and is my whole world. I know how much people love their pets and I’m happy to tell them that they are in good hands with peace for pets!
