COO & Lead Practitioner
Since a very young age, Natacha has had a strong passion and interest towards caring for and nursing animals; from domestic pets such as cats, dogs, and rabbits to various wildlife animals such as squirrels and birds. Animals under her care would always be a priority. Growing up, there was no doubt in her mind that she was going to work with animals as a career. Natacha went on to pursue her studies to become a Veterinary Technician (VT) through the University of Guelph and now has over 10 years of experience working with animals in various establishments such as emergency veterinary clinics, breeding and boarding kennels, and animal rehabilitation centres.
Natacha is also a very passionate competitive athlete; sports and fitness has always been a big part of who she is. She competed in many provincial and national events for both hockey and volleyball (indoor and beach) during which time she had gained a vast amount of knowledge, experience and appreciation for strengthening and conditioning, sports medicine, physiology and physical therapy. Staying active and maintaining a healthy, well-balanced life has always been important to her. Natacha decided to combine both of her passions and further her studies to become a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) through the University of Tennessee, and she is now a proud member of the International Association of Veterinary Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy (IAVRPT). It all came very naturally to her and it is clearly evident that she loves what she is doing and that she is driven to help animals live longer, happier and healthier lives.

CEO & Marketing Director
Tim has always been a creative thinker. As a young child, he would find himself constantly exploring art, building things, and pretending to run his very own businesses. He strived for success and perfection in everything that he did. These core values have followed him along his life path, through post-secondary and graduate education where he obtained bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Industrial Design at Carleton University, and further into his career as a product designer where he helps a variety of clients from small start-ups to large corporations achieve their product development goals. Although product development consulting has been, and continues to be, an enjoyable career for Tim, there has always been a part of him that wanted to start his very own business and bring something unique and interesting to the world.
When Natacha introduced the idea of starting-up her own business and bringing her practice to the city of Ottawa and the surrounding areas, it had immediately sparked Tim’s interest. His love for animals, entrepreneurial spirit, and design expertise made for the perfect combination to take the next steps and begin the journey of what is now Rehab Fur Your Pet. As co-owners of the business, Tim and Natacha work closely together to make Rehab Fur Your Pet a success; not only for the business itself, but for all of the animals and pet owners that they help day after day. Tim’s passion and commitment to the business is driven by the success stories that they help create, and knowing that Rehab Fur Your Pet is making a difference.
