About Daniel and Shan

Daniel Feldman and Shan Ogdemli are married and have lived in the Hollywood Hills since 1993. Both are life long animal lovers and pet owners. Their current pack includes the fabulous Miss Bettie Page, a beautiful black rescue mutt; Sammy, a goofy yet gorgeous young Golden Retriever; and Theo the grey and white dog-loving cat.

Daniel and Shan have run a graphic design, illustration and art licensing business for over 20 years. In 2008 they scaled down their design business and moved the studio into their Hollywood Hills home. They love being able to spend the day with their furry family members while working at home and going for hikes in the surrounding hills. So much so that they started offering their pet care services to neighbors and friends years ago. Now they divide their time between their 2 passions of creating and licensing art and caring for animals.

Shan was born in Berkeley, California and has lived in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Hawaii and Northern California before settling in Hollywood. She has had numerous pets throughout her life including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice, snakes, turtles, ducks, chickens, fish, parakeets and finches as well as a rescued wild monkey in Bangkok (until it was well enough to be released back into the jungle). Growing up, Shan was torn between wanting to pursue a career as an artist or a career as an animal care professional. Now she is thrilled to be able to do both!

Daniel was born and raised in Woodland Hills, California. He grew up with numerous family dogs and cats, including a legendary poodle named Mitzi. While 12 year old Daniel was recuperating from a terrible car accident, Mitzi became his best friend and guardian, never leaving his side and carefully screening all of his visitors. Since that time he has had a special place in his heart for our furry friends and has been repaying the favor ever since.
