Adele Sylvester’s career got a jump-start at an early age working at her grandparent’s New Hampshire Farm.  They heaped on the responsibilities and she got plenty of hands-on experience caring for everything from cats to cows and everything in between.

Years later, Adele brought her true love of animals to Los Angeles, where once again, she stockpiled valuable knowledge and experience working for and assisting two well-respected and appreciative veterinary groups.  She began her career as an entrepreneur, running her own pet sitting business.  Her latest successful venture, Tender Touch Pet Care receives high praise from her high profile human, cat, and canine clients alike.  Adele has been featured on Good Day LA and in LA Magazine.

“Having the unique experience of working with vets and caring for sick and aging pets, I realized the need our clients were experiencing--  for someone compassionate and knowledgeable to assist,  exercise, and offer advice and in-home care to their pets when they weren’t around or just needed extra help.  That’s what Tender Touch is all about.  Care, privacy, confidentiality and support.”

In addition to her work with Tender Touch, Adele continues to volunteer at  German Shepherd Rescues and other animal rescue organizations.  Her love and commitment to animals and their welfare infuse not only her work, but every area of her life.
