About Us

Pet Parade Plus is proudly owned and operated by Shannon Pester, a third-generation Kingstonian.

Before starting her business, Shannon worked in the service industry in Kingston, however, she had always wanted to run her own show. After completing a small business program she launched Pet Parade Plus in January 2000.

A few months later she purchased Paws and Claws (this company was in operation for approximately 9 years). The combination of Shannon’s dedication and the well-established client base was an instant success.

Shannon has had the pleasure of caring for thousands of pets in Kingston and the surrounding area…

“I have learned many things from these wonderful pets and continue to learn every day. As the parent of a Dog, Guinea Pig, and Multiple Cats (currently 7), I truly understand the joy these creatures bring to our daily lives. I believe that having proper insurance to care for animals gives people a sense of security and shows a commitment to being a professional pet care provider.”

“I do not take this business lightly and I would not trust my pet care with just anyone. I do everything in my power to ensure the safety and security of the pets in my care. Pet Parade Plus is properly insured with pet-specific insurance and I have never had to make a claim with my insurance company.  I truly love these pets that have been entrusted to my care. I hope to add your pets to my extended family. Please contact me with any questions or concerns .”
