About Us

Farrel Hansen, owner and operator of Furreal’s Pet Sitting Services, has years of experience caring for pets. Growing up on a farm in rural Nebraska, Farrel came to care for and come in contact with many animals. In addition to her loyal German Shepherd, Brownie, her family’s farm included cats, cows, a horse named Appy along with the occasional skunk, snake and coyote. Farrel spent many days bottle feeding calves and also witnessed the birth of an adorable litter of many German Shepherd puppies.  Years later, her family moved to town-life which later brought her Christmas gift, Angel (baby), who recently passed away in 2010.

Farrel was born right here in Sarasota but raised in Nebraska. She has an Associates of Applied Science degree in Business Administration. After spending a couple years in Georgia she finally returned to Sarasota. She worked in the fast paced office of Erick Shumway at RE/MAX Gulfstream and learned the wide world of worker’s compensation. Finally, she decided to pursue a career that she was truly passionate about—pets.

She volunteers for local Sarasota shelters as well as being involved in the Sarasota pet community and donates to various local pet charities.
