About Tracey
As a child, I grew up in Derry NH and spent most of my weekends at our family farm in Contoocook NH. This beautiful farm on 100 acres introduced me to all types of farm animals and wildlife. On that farm lived Dino a beautiful german shepherd. My Dad introduced us when we were both 12 weeks old. That is where it all began....

From there my parents adopted Friskey, 10-week old black lab rescue when I was 7yrs old - needless to say, I grew up with Friskey for the next 18yrs...she was a love, a companion, and the inspiration for my business today. As I graduated from college I began taking care of my friend's pets ( dogs, cats, fish, bunnies ) when they would travel for work. The next thing I knew my friends were telling their friends who were telling their friends and I decided to turn this into a business.

Here we are today Wiggles & Jiggles Pet Care!

In the summer of 2008, I had the most amazing opportunity to volunteer for 1 week at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab UT. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary also known as "Dogtown" is the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in the world. I had the opportunity to see first hand how the Michael Vick dogs are successfully being rehabilitated. I also got to work with hundreds of animals on this 33,000-acre facility in the heart of Angel Canyon. This was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had and I encourage everyone to visit this wonderful, beautiful, peaceful place. It is truly God's country.

My business has been featured in several newspapers, magazines, radio shows and cable stations. Educating people on animal care is a passion of mine. My business also has been blessed to receive awards locally, regionally and nationally. 

In 2015, I had the honor of being interviewed by the American Veterinary Medical Assocation ( AVMA) for an article published in the AVMA journal of medicine called  "Disease Precautions for Dog Walkers"  

I have my Masters in Business Education, my Bachelors in Marketing and Advertising, all from Johnson & Wales University. I decided to go back to school and attended Bancroft School of Massage and completed a 1yr long certificate program in Small Animal Massage. I am also Advanced Level Reiki and Animal CPR.

I am a member of PSI Pet Sitters International and the North Andover Merchants Association along with a few other clubs and organizations within my industry.  Most importantly my business is insured & bonded.

Wiggles & Jiggles fundraiser for the North Andover Fire Dept

North Andover Fire Department gets four animal oxygen masks for Animals

Written by Crystal Bozek  on July 19, 2009

NORTH ANDOVER — Firefighter Barry Sullivan has three dogs of his own. He knows how close people get to their pets.

He's also seen pets not make it out of fires, and the heartbreak that can cause a homeowner.

"There was the German Shepherd on Christmas Day. That was tough," Sullivan said, remembering one incident, as he petted his dog Kurn, a 10-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback. "To some people, these are our kids."

That's why Sullivan is so excited about the North Andover Fire Department's newest equipment — four sets of pet oxygen masks that will help resuscitate animals suffering from smoke inhalation.

The masks, which cost $55 apiece, were donated to the department on Friday by a local pet care business owner.

Tracey Zysk, owner of Wiggles & Jiggles Pet Care of North Andover, raised more than $300 for the masks during the town's Fourth of July festivities. Her business includes pet sitting, dog walking, cat care and animal massage. She also donated $100 to the North Andover Police Department's K-9 unit.

"I've been wanting to do something, and with all the animal-friendly condos going up around town, I thought this would be a good idea," she said. "They gave me the helmet and boot to collect money and people just kept giving money. They were so generous."

The cone-shaped plastic masks come in three sizes and fit snugly on a snout. They can be used on dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs — even birds if needed.

Masks made for humans are not the right size for animals and don't deliver enough oxygen to clear their lungs.

Animals often have to wait to get to an animal hospital for treatment, and many times, that's too late. And animals are even more susceptible to smoke inhalation.

The masks are reusable and work the same way a human mask would, by feeding oxygen through a tube that pumps it to the nose and mouth.

Fire Lt. Robert Bonenfant said it's the worst feeling being on scene but not being able to help an ailing animal.

"We just want to have something, some tool," he said. "Firefighters just want to do something. It's hard for them to hold back."
