Lynda is the proud owner of Snaggle Foot Dog walks and pet care in Birmingham. Growing up Lynda and her family were never without some kind of dog or cat. She fondly remembers picking out her first dog princess and cat white foot with her twin sister Lissa. Lynda got her love of pets from her dad who, would fill his pockets full of treats and walk around the neighborhood feeding each and every dog that he would see. It was seeing the happiness it brought her dad to feed each neighborhood dog that she knew she would never be without some kind of pet in her life.
Lynda currently lives in downtown Bham with her two cats Trot and Munchkin and her true sidekick Tango. Lynda and Tango are currently in training to become a therapy team in Bham through a pet therapy program Hand N Paw.
Through being a dog walker for Snaggle Foot Bham since Aug ’16 Lynda has experienced first hand the true spirit of being there for dogs and cats from comforting them while their owners are out of town or just by providing them with some fun play time during mid-day walks. Combining her love of the outdoors and pets owning a Snaggle Foot franchise seems only natural. She is excited to begin her adventure of owning Snaggle Foot Bham in hopes to continue to show the same love and compassion that it was built on through its previous owner.
Hi! My name is Kayce Swift, and I am a senior studying Social Work at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. After graduation I hope to apply for the Social Work Master’s program at UAB, and continue my education here. I am a part-time employee at UAB for the Instructional Design and Technology team where I assist with the media aspect of courses. I enjoy exercising (biking in particular) and I play club lacrosse for Samford University. My family always had animals – from Great Danes to teacup Pomeranians and Bearded Dragons. As a college student, I am unable to own a dog and show it the attention and love it deserves, but I do have a Ball Python named Salazar (a Harry Potter namesake of course) and a Bearded Dragon named Paco. I love animals so very much and I am so happy to have the chance to work for Snaggle Foot so that dogs, cats, and all animals are a part of my everyday life!
Hi, my name is Abby Garver. I’m 26 years old, and I’m a student at UAB with a foreign language major. Specifically, I am a French major, and since I am already fluent, I am now learning Spanish. Ultimately I wish to pursue astrophysics. When I’m not studying, I am very active in sports and exercise. I am vice-president of the UAB Tennis Club. Tennis and indoor soccer are my two favorite sports. My other interests include: traveling, scuba diving, snow skiing, water skiing, hiking, running, digital photography, creative writing in French, cooking, especially French cuisine, French scrabble, and cinema. I was born in Birmingham, AL and grew up in Hoover, AL. I am a major Francophile and try to visit as often as possible. I have work experience as a server, French tutor, retail, and of course for Snaggle Foot. I joined the Snaggle Foot team in June of 2015. I loved that the job permitted me to be around animals, and also able to fit it in with my class schedule. I grew up with cats and dogs in the suburbs. As much as I love living in downtown Birmingham now, it means I can’t have pets. I was very glad that working for Snaggle Foot filled that animal void in my life. I have enjoyed so very much getting to know our regulars and new clients as well.
