Although Patrick sounds like a Texan, he is European. Patrick was born in Germany and raised in France and Chad, Africa. His father was French and in the French Air Force and his mother was German. They met soon after World War II. Patrick earned his Mechanical Engineering Degree in France and worked in the space industry several years before moving to San Francisco, California to obtain his Masters Degree in Business in 1989. During this time he met Mindy and they married in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. After completing his business degree they moved to Tyler, Texas where they have continued to live for 30 years.  Patrick began working for PETS in January 1991.  He and Mindy have two children, Danielle age 26 and Dalton age 18.  Patrick enjoys traveling, cooking, and loves spending time with his family. He has been a volunteer fire fighter and EMT since 1991.  Patrick has enjoyed his career in the animal industry spanning almost 30 years. 

"This career in the animal industry has made it possible to make many new friends around the world.  I love that in most cases our customers and co-workers are more than just a customer or co-worker. They become friends and family."  ~ Patrick Baldauf


Ryan was born and raised in Buffalo, New York and moved to East Texas in his late teens. He began working with PETS  in 2007.  Ryan is a dedicated part of the team and is valued for his great work ethic. He lives in East Texas with his partner, April and his three children, Zoey, Dominick and Lexi. He enjoys being active, sports,  (remains a lifelong Buffalo Sabers fan!), concerts and spending time with his family. 


Danielle (Dani) is Patrick's daughter and the newest member of the PETS team having started in 2010.  She is a native Texan, born and raised in Tyler, Texas.  Danielle is a barrel racer and has two horses. Miss Cee Hickory "Miss Cee" is her current open barrel horse and Fight Em Firefighter "Inferno" is her futurity hopeful who will then take over as her open barrel horse. Danielle has always had a passion for animals, especially dogs and horses. When not with her horses, she is helping her community by following in her dads footsteps as a volunteer firefighter. Since Patrick was a fire fighter, Danielle was around the fire department most of her life and joined at age 16. 

"When growing up I always wanted to be a veterinarian. Life happened and plans changed as I grew up. Now I enjoy working with veterinarians and am able to travel around the country and the world to see them at various conferences. I love being able to put faces to names and voices that I talk to over the phone."  ~  Danielle Baldauf


Lexi is Patrick and Danielle's Australian Shepard mix. Although she is the youngest member of the PETS family, she is just as important to the daily operations. When someone comes in the front door she is instantly there to greet them with a wagging tail. Lexi was a stray who showed up at the Baldauf's house and refused to leave because she knew she had found her forever home. She is happiest when going for a ride, chasing her squeaky green tennis balls, and getting love.
