S'wooft opened in March of 2015 when Sarah Homan (founder) ran into a dilemma. She lived in far northwest Chicago and despite being within city limits, had very few options for pet care for her then 8yr old collie mix, Allie. Long work and commuting hours made it necessary to find a reliable daily dog walker and she was shocked at the limited options in her area, so she made it her mission to establish a loving, reliable, and professional pet care service for far northwest Chicago and the surrounding area. Sarah left her full-time job in technology recruiting in October of 2015 to continue to grow the business. Her dogs Allie and little sister Melo (2yr old Pit Bull mix) now enjoy having a daily walking buddy and seeing a lot more of mom!
Sarah brought a professional background in education, customer service and career advising, and networking within and beyond her community. Her love for animals was the common thread throughout, as she made several career choices based on her pets' wellbeing. It has become her joy to be a more present dog mom and help other pet owners maintain a high quality of life for their fur babies despite the demands of adult life. S'wooft has been fortunate to find professional and loving individuals to care for their clients and Sarah strongly believes that our value lies in our great team of professional pet care providers.
