Meet Jackie:

I’ve been an Akronite almost my entire life, and I currently live in West Akron with my 3 dogs & 2 cats. I’ve always had a love of animals, and I’m fortunate to be able to put that love to work in my company: SouthPaw Pet Sitting. We’ve been walking dogs & caring for the pets of Akron since 2005.

There are so many things to love about Akron—the parks & trails that are nearby, the interesting homes & neighborhoods, and the friendly people that call Akron home. It’s been great watching Downtown change & grow throughout the years, and I’m excited to see what the future brings for our fun & quirky city!
