Stephanie Tafel
Amanda Sweet
Stylist and Adoptions Director

Amanda has been grooming in the local Central New York area for 8 years. Her knowledge and experience give her the ability to work with many different animals such as dogs, cats, guinea pigs and ferrets, loving each one as she does her fur family at home! She has 5 adopted pets - 2 dogs and 3 cats. She also volunteers her time to administer Shear Loves's cat adoption program, successfully finding forever homes for more than 20 homeless kitties over the last 4 years! 

Chelsea Sotherden

Growing up with her mom Shelley, Chelsea learned to love and appreciate all animals, and found her passion for grooming while bathing pets at the salon with her. She enjoys grooming pets of all sizes but has an extra soft spot for the bigger breeds, and guinea pigs! Her furry clients love their spa time with Chelsea because she gives them special care and attention with the upmost quality. She's the proud caretaker of two furkids herself - Bruno and Bayne - whom she loves dearly. Come by and let Chelsea treat your furkids as she does her own.

Annemarie Powers
