Shannon Strang was originally born in Scotland; however, she has spent her life bouncing from country to country including places such as Venezuela, Thailand, Africa and most recently Malaysia.
Shannon had always loved animals, and when she moved to Cote d’Ivoire, her family got their first dog, a small Bichon Frise named Tina. Growing up with Tina completely changed her outlook on animals and made her a more generous and sympathetic person. As well as a hedgehog named Shadow later on in life sparked her interest in exotic animals.
Growing up in so many different environments gave her an open mind on how different cultures lived in respect to animals. Shannon has lived in places with poverty and various religious outlooks which have shed light on global animal welfare issues.
She tried to do her part by feeding the animals on the weekends and stopping if she saw any on the streets to get them to a shelter. After Shannon saw a small kitten get run over by a car she rushed to try and get it to a hospital, unfortunately, it died in her hands, and that was the last straw.
After graduating from high school in Malaysia, Shannon moved to Montreal at 19 years old, unsure of what the next step would be, however certain she wanted to pursue something concerning animals. She signed up to volunteer at the SPCA and adopted two cats, later to adopt another. She was recommended to contact Gaby at the Dogue Shop, and all the pieces fit into place from there.
Shannon is now devoting her time to studying Applied Human Sciences at Concordia University while interning at the Dogue Shop and doing one on one training through her newly established business Shannon Strang Animal Services. She also teaches puppy socialization and teen development group classes at the Dogue Shop. She also presents innovative workshops and seminars with Randi Belfer.
