Karen, I'm so glad we met you. Thank you very much for taking care of Juno. We knew from the get-go that she was in professional and kind hands with you. I'm glad that Juno was behaving during her stay, and got to enjoy her time with you. You are our go-to dog sitter now :)

My 16 year old boy, Rufus, spent the day with Karen and he had the best time! He was safe and pampered all day. Karen really went out of her way to care for him, including brushing him and trimming his nails. I will definitely be taking Rufus to visit her again! Thanks Rover.com!

Karen's Pet Resort Home & Yard

My daughter and I have been professional pet sitters for 6 years and have all 5-star yelp reviews. I have spent 29 years working in the animal health industry in one form or another, from volunteering at local shelters to working as a veterinary assistant to pay my way through UCSD. I have also traveled to Australia, Africa, and South America on animal-related expeditions.

Together, my daughter and I are foster parents for Second Chance ...
