About Our Founder

The Saving Grace Story​

Grace Steckler

Grace Steckler founded Saving Grace Pet Care shortly after moving to Capitol Hill Washington D.C. in 2000. For over twenty three years Grace took Saving Grace Pet Care from a one woman operation to a business that employed over one hundred people and became the standard by which professional pet sitting companies are judged. Her hard work and dedication paved the way for the careers of many people and helped transform the pet care business into what has become a professional and indispensable service that the people of Washington D.C. rely on everyday. 

Grace retired from the dog walking game in early 2023 and currently resides in Leesburg Virginia with her husband David and children Benjamin and Pearl.
