Ted’s passion for animal care began in 2005 when he started fostering homeless animals through the MSPCA. In 2012, after a career in healthcare client service management, Ted decided he did not want to spend his days at a desk anymore. Instead, he wanted to combine his commitment to client services with his love of pets and founded Above & Beyond Pet Services. His vision was to offer a service that felt personalized, one that was there when you needed them with employees that would build a relationship with your pet. Ted believes in hard work, doing what is right, and helping people and pets in any way he can.
