Hoof and Paw Pet Care LLC

About Us

Nicole Torres

Nicole started pet sitting under the business name Nickers and Howls Pet Services in 2016 after working in retail and horse farm jobs her whole life. She has always wanted a career with animals, but had no idea that pet sitting would be her niche. She created Hoof and Paw Pet Care LLC. after many people were confused by not knowing what a "nicker" was. She decided to go with a more simple name and logo design.

Nicole has always put animals' needs above her own, and goes above and beyond to make sure animals in her care are happy and healthy. Her love for animals has been natural, having been raised around dogs, cats, fish, and horses. Nicole has been in the equestrian industry since 2001, and has owned horses since 2004. In hear early-mid teen years, Nicole helped her former horseback riding trainer with restarting and showing off the track Thoroughbreds and other breeds of horses. Now she enjoys her 2 horses, a Morgan mare named Tessa and a Thoroughbred gelding named Oliver. 

Her family has always owned dogs and cats since before she was born, and has her own personal dogs; Simon, that has been hers from the time of adoption, and recently accrued her mom's rescue dog, Kaia, after Kaia had been drawn more so to Nicole. Kaia is a big challenge as she is a very nervous dog, but is coming along in her training. Simon is now getting older, but still responds to off leash training.

Nicole attended Delaware Valley University for 1 year, and decided that college was not her forte. She was going for large animal sciences with the goal to become a vet. After some research, she did't think that becoming a vet would be in her best interest as the thought of helping animals cross the rainbow bridge is too painful.

Currently, she resides in Sellersville with her 2 dogs and 2 horses.
