Alex Tranghese

Hi there! I’m Alex, I am the Manager at APC. I thrive on being organized, thorough and having great communication skills.

I have been a part of this wonderful family for over 7 years! I’ve been in pet industry for eleven years and have loved every second of it. My animal family over the years has consisted of my dogs, many rats, Guinea pigs and ferret friends. I’m also very experienced with reptiles, aves, aquatics and other pocket pets as well as feline and canine companions.

I gained tons of experience from my time at Petsmart and Petco, as well as personal experience with all my little ones, and am very comfortable caring for any of your medicated fur babies.

I’ve always had quite an instinctive connection with all animals and have been able to form a bond with even the most high-pressure furry friends. I will always love your pets like they’re my own and promise they are always in great hands! I am also an avid gardener and can assure the utmost care of your plant babies as well.

Alex has been a dedicated pet caretaker/manager with APC for 7+ years.

All Ashland Pet Concierge pet caretakers consider ourselves Animal Guardian Angels. We are there to provide loving, professional care and provide safety and security to your beloved pets. All are Pet CPR & First Aid Certified.
