“Kenzie has helped take care of all kinds of pets for our family. From dogs and cats, to rabbits, Guinea pigs, and a bearded dragon. Of course she loves the dogs and cats the most, but she is very caring and spends time with each animal.”
About: I’ve taken care of all kinds of pets my entire life. I have experience dog-sitting, cat-sitting, dog walking and even some grooming. I recently raised an 8 week old puppy until he was almost a year old (when his next mama took over). My passionate love for animals doesn’t vary between small, large, young, or old - I love them all! I’m a part-time student at SWIC this fall and I have a part-time job at Mueller Vet Services in Columbia. I have plenty of weekend availability and very flexible during the week. Please reach out to see if my exact schedule would work for you! My goal is to make your furry friend feel as comfortable as possible with me. I take caution when getting to know a new animal, making sure to give them the time and space they need in order to get to know me.
“In my house, pets are people. They have feelings and needs. I pay attention, and look out for them as they look out for me. Karissa not only gets this concept, it is entirely the way she interacts with other people’s pets. When I go away, and cannot bring pets along, I don’t have to worry about paying a premium just to get an extra bit of time in the outdoors, additional cuddles or treats, or for remote cameras to check on them. I know that Karissa will treat them like I would, and that makes it one less worry to bring along on vacation.”
About: I've loved animals my whole life & grew up with several in my household at all times. I have experience with reptiles, amphibians, dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, you name it! I currently have 2 cats & 3 dogs whose breeds are: australian shepherd, american bully, & beagle shih tzu mix so I am very experienced with all sizes, temperaments, & energy drives. I can assure that your furry (or non furry) family members will feel loved, cared for, & comfortable while you are away as I will love them just like they are my own. I run my own small business & work from home so I can fit your animals needs into my schedule however I need to, to make sure they get the care, love, & attention they need. I always make sure to take the proper steps in each of my clients homes to keep their animals & their space safe of injury or damage. I always make sure to care for each animal exactly as their owner would so they are comfortable & safe. I always leave each space better than I found it which includes cleaning up any messes, muddy or wet paws, kennels, food, ect. I always make sure to do more than the bare minimum that a lot of animal care takers do; I always make sure to take the extra time to love on & play with any animals so they get the extra excersize, attention, & energy output they need so they remain happy, healthy, & comfortable while their families are away.
“I am writing this recommendation in regards for Kelly K. She is the most dependable, reliable, honest person you could have on your team. She loves her fur babies and mine as if she were her own. My dog just loves seeing her come through the door. My experience with Kelly caring for my dog is something I never worry about. She would be the greatest asset to your team!”
“Suzanne has been a tremendous help in watching our Shih Tzu. She worked to understand our dog’s needs with food and medicine, because our dog has health issues. She comes to our home to allow our dog to remain in an environment she’s comfortable in. Suzanne is very playful with our very active puppy & we love knowing our dog is well cared for with Suzanne.”
“Jennifer was very fast with communicating. She was punctual. My pup was at ease with her. I loved the photos sent of my dog walking in park. I had a tooth removed and was not sure I would be up to walking dog so booked Jennifer. I will rehire her again”
“We have had Holly house and animal sit for us several times. Holly is very conscientious when it comes to animal care, and is not afraid to ask questions so that she can understand completely what the needs of the animals are when we are gone. She also likes to send text photos of our pets enjoying being in their own home and barn. She is very clean, and the house looks great when we get home! Although we did not require it, she even volunteered to scoop manure and wheelbarrow it out of the horse stall. Holly gets a kick out of observing animal behavior, and is very patient with some of their quirks (like our "persnickety" chihuahua who can be snappish). Our three dogs respond really well to her, and even the chihuahua has come around to letting her cuddle him, and will sleep with her at night. Holly loves our old english sheepdog, and claims that she could pet her for hours. Our feeding regimen for all our various animals can be quite confusing, but Holly has mastered it all. I can't give her enough credit for the effort she puts into the job. I heartily recommend Holly as a responsible, calming, and loving animal caregiver.”
“Irene is honestly phenomenal when it comes to providing care with your wonderful furbabies. She has cared for my animals many times and I don’t trust many people with my animals! Irene treated my furbabies just like her own. Let me tell you she sure does her sweet kitty Charlotte! I would definitely recommend her to care fore your furbabies.”
About: Fostered 11 dogs with my local animal rescue groups. While the fosters were under my care, I would work on basic training and making sure I understood them so I could find them the right home.

I'm capable of feeding, watering,playing, giving any oral medication as needed,having the pet "kennel up" when necessary.
About: I regularly house sit for my family. I care for their pets and watch their home when they go on vacation so their pets can be comfortable staying in their home. I work from home part time during the week, my hours are relatively flexible so I can still work and still meet your pet’s needs. I can follow a routine if you pet is used to having one, including feeding times, walk times, crating, etc. I’m physically active, so I can provide them with long walks and play so they get exercise.
“Maddie is the Best! My dogs absolutely love her, she always take such great care of them and keeps me updated the whole time she has them.”
“Lindsay just loves animals and is very aware of their wants and needs. Lindsay currently works in a Veterinarian office and has become familiar with many varieties of animals and how to care and work with them rather just a routine check up, surgery, recovery from surgery, or a diagnosis that no one is ready to hear. Lindsay is compassionate and caring with the biggest and kindest heart ever. Lindsay aspires to go to Vet school and become a verterinarian - not only will her patients love her but thier people will also. Lindsay has had pet growing up and has strong bonds with all of them. she is also able to cut/trim nails and administer medications to them. Lindsay has taken care of my little baby puppy when we were on vacation and my puppy adores the time and attention Lindsay gives to her. Lindsay would be an asset to any family in need of someone to help care for their precious pet. thanks”
“Samantha watched our two pups for a week while we were on vacation. We have an older temperamental chihuahua and a Jack Russell mix. Both dogs loved her! Samantha sent us photos of the dogs and let us know how they were doing. When we got home, the house was just the way we left it and the dogs were happy and healthy. Will absolutely use Samantha again AND definitely recommend her to others!”
“I am a neighbor of Sarah and have 2 boxers. With just moving into my home a little over a year ago, I did not know who I was going to get to dog sit when I go out of town. I became acquainted with Sarah, she seemed very nice and personable and I knew she was a pet person. I asked her for one weekend if she would mind to keep an eye on my boxers and she said that she could, no looking back, she was exactly what I was looking for. My two had no problems becoming Sarah's friends. She is very trust worthy and takes very good care of them. Since I am her neighbor, she just comes to my home to let them out and feed them. With that being said, I also trust her in my home. I HIGHLY recommend Sarah for anyone that is needing a dog sitter.”

About: I do not have any professional pet care experience, however I have had animals of my own and cared for them ever sine the age of 7. I currently have 2 dogs of my own and 2 fish. I've always wanted to get into caring for other animals in different ways and I think now that I finally have the free time this could be a great place to start :) I understand it's very hard to trust someone without a lot of professional experience with your furry friends just as much as it would be a child that's why I am willing to accommodate any needs met! I am currently unemployed so I am available all hours throughout the day, any days of the week! I am working on getting into online schooling and will continue to be available throughout that time as well :) I have two German Shepards that live in my household, that I pretty much consider my children. They are beyond spoiled, One is a long-haired German & the other medium. They are both on very good daily routines that both are very well aware of. Like I mentioned I have a bunch of free time so I'm willing to do whatever makes you feel comfortable!
About: I’ve always had a fur baby as a part of my family. Now that my children are grown and away from home, they always tell me that my dog now is my favorite child😅 I’m lucky enough to have a job that gives the freedom of different scheduling options daily. This gives me time for my doggos and yours. As I have a Pit Bull, he can seem scary to those who meet him for the first time. For this reason, I always put on his harness and leash for a walk. He has a couple favorite stops along our way because he makes friends easily.
About: I’ve taken care of dogs of every kind since I was 15. Neighbors, friends and family have relied on me to walk, feed, give medicine, and bathe their pets. I'm currently working part-time and a full time college student! I am available to take care on Sundays 12 to 8, Mon & Wed 10-4. I have 15 acres, so I'm not close to a road or highway! I have two friendly pups who would love to keep your dog company!
