“Dave was able to help me with a last minute scheduling conflict and was able to take my puppy on a walk!”
“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 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.

“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.”
“Rochelle is AMAZING!! She watched 8 week old puppy and 6-year-old dog while we were on vacation. They were so loved and well taken care of that I had no worries. She sent us pictures and videos to show this how they were doing while we were away, which really helped out a lot! She was very good with communication and we had no worries the entire time we were gone! We will use her all the time even if it's just to let the dogs out or take them for a walk. We just love her!”
“I’ve known Suzanne for over 10 years. In that time, she has become one of my very dearest friends. She has had pets as long as I’ve known her - both dogs and kitties. She takes wonderful care of her babies and spoils them rotten. My fur babies have always looked to her as a second mommy. She is loving, patient, energetic, and super smart and well-organized. She loves taking care of others including friends and family - and especially her grand babies. Suzanne is always willing to go above and beyond expectations for anything she does. I would trust her with my pets absolutely - she will love and treat them like her own!!”
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.
“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.”
“Jennifer went above and beyond. It was my dog's first time going on a walk with anyone other that me. He was a little reluctant to go, but Jennifer brought treats to help comfort him. She was available short notice which I really appreciated. I will definitely be using Jennifer in the future.”

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!
“Andrea is the best!”
“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”
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.
“Samantha is the best with my dogs Otis and Larry! They have so much fun staying with her and I know they are taken care of the whole time they are with her. They get plenty of exercise with her + she has all the pet knowledge from working at a vet! 10/10 recommended Samatha for all your pet needs!”

I live in walking distance from ny work and to multiple parks as well.i have wanted a dog since I moved in my home, but not fully ready. Have lots of the love and attention to give. Fenced yard and one spayed kitty wirh my two teen daughters. We all love animals. They speak without words and love us truly unconditionally, which humans are taught to cut through life.
About: I have experience of volunteering for a pet daycare named The water bowl. I worked with dogs of all sizes and breeds while there. It was an amazing experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am currently a student at Jefferson College. I am a music major and play currently two different instruments. So most days I am practicing. I have a cat currently (her name is Maria), and she is a very playful cat. So im always giving her lots of cuddles and playtime.
