A little about Michelle...

Hello (or should I say Woof!). My name is Michelle Starr and I love animals!! Ever since I won my first goldfish at the Monterey County Fair, I have had a passion and dedication to animals and their care. I grew up in the beautiful Carmel Valley and was fortunate to participate in a local 4-H chapter. I spent seven years in 4-H raising pigs, sheep, goats, and chickens. Experiencing the joy of caring for a living creature lead me to attend Chico State and study Animal Science. I took many classes that strengthened my animal care skills, such as animal handling, live animal evaluation, animal health & disease, animal nutrition, and feeds & feeding, to name a few. While attending Chico State, I worked at the University Farm as a Farm Tour Guide. I loved sharing with people all the interesting facts about livestock and what it takes to care for them. I graduated in 2011 with my Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science. Beginning in 2012 until 2015, I worked as a Sales Associate at Pet Food Express in Carmel. While at Pet Food Express, I furthered my knowledge on proper animal nutrition, grooming, and general care. My best friend and boyfriend Matt has been a huge part of All-Starr Pet Services for the last four years. He loves dogs almost as much as I do and they surely love them. I'm so lucky I found a partner that not only tolerates sharing our home with multiple dogs but actually loves having guest doggies over. I frequently find him in the Zoomie Zone throwing a frisbee or tossing a ball for our fur guests. Today, as All-Starr Pet Services, I am dedicated to providing care with the highest level of satisfaction for clients both two and four-legged! My goal is to better the lives of people and their animals. I will do everything I can to exceed your expectations and make your dog wag and wiggle with joy!
