Leah Chavez – Owner

I was raised by entrepreneurial parents and have always wanted to own my own business. The big question was, “What kind of business should I open?”

I have extensive experience working with various types of animals, such as dogs, cats, small animals, farm animals, horses, reptiles, freshwater aquariums, and birds. My pet-care work experience includes grooming salons, doggie day-care centers, managing retail pet stores, and rescue/adoption organizations. Over the years I have always found myself working with animals in some capacity. I’ve had more than 20 years of animal husbandry experience, so founding a pet-care company was a natural choice. I founded Peaceful Pet Sitters in 2011 while I was working at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society as an adoption councilor. Two of the most common concerns of new adopters were that they worked long hours or traveled frequently. I could clearly see that pet owners in Santa Fe needed a reliable, trustworthy, consistent pet-sitting and dog-walking company. I look forward to serving you and your family soon.


Gabriel Chavez - Owner/Pet Care Associate

I joined my wife Leah at Peaceful Pet Sitters in October, 2013. Since joining the company full-time, I have been working as a Pet Care Associate, Human Resources Specialist and Book Keeper. Walking dogs on a daily basis has been quite rewarding as I have had the opportunity to work closely with a local dog trainer to learn more and more about dog behavior. I am grateful that I have the opportunity to care for Santa Fe’s pets.
