About: I have always had pets growing up as a child and my love for them has grown even more. Now that I have moved to Richmond, I'm missing my animals back home. I love making new pet buddies, and want to ensure they are as happy as can be. My experience in Pet Care is from having my own pets and caring for family and friends' pets throughout high school. My dog back home has allergy issues that required medication everyday, so I have experienced in giving oral medication. Im currently enrolled at VCU and only have classes for about 3 hours in the morning, so I’ll have plenty of time to be around for furry friends. I always give much love to the pets I care for. I understand that all pets are different and make sure to cater to their schedule.

On dog walks I can jog/run with your pet to get them in some good exercise, I love running and staying fit as well as keeping pets nice and healthy. I work from home three days a week with a flexible schedule, as well as usually being home on the weekends. Plenty of different availability I go above and beyond for my pets as well as for my clientele. I pay attention to detail, I have a good sense of my surroundings

“Karli did a great job with Onyx! This is my first time using River and was hesitant leaving my large breed dog alone for the first time. Onyx got the love she needed while I was away. I would definitely rebook!”
“I was extremely hesitant to leave my cats with a stranger - my cats are my children in a lot of ways - but as soon as I met Kylie it reassured me I made a good choice as to who I can trust with my two boys. She made me feel relaxed, at ease and was extremely reliable/communicative. She obviously has had a lot of experience caring for animals/pets and it showed; there was not a moment that I felt uneasy. She stayed longer than she needed to and was very attentive my cats needs. I will definitely be booking future rover visits with her again! She’s the best!”

About: I've taken care of animals for as long as I can remember. Throughout my childhood, my family had several cats and 3 dogs. I have experience with animals of all ages, from kitten/puppy to senior pets. I currently have 2 cats of my own, but I'm more than capable of caring for dogs as well (of all sizes/breeds). Most of my friends have dogs and I always look forward to seeing them and playing with them when I get the chance. I would love a dog of my own, but being a renter and moving around a lot I can't take on an additional pet at the moment. Even though I'm a cat household, all animals are welcome and will be treated like one of the family. I work full time from home so I'm always around to look after your fur babies. I can take frequent breaks during the work day to check in on them whether it be to feed them, play for a bit, or take care of bathroom breaks. During non-working hours, they will have my full attention. When your pet is in my care, my goal is to love them and care for them like they're one of my own. I want to adapt to your pet's needs whether that means a lot of play time, walks, or just some quality couch time. If your pet has any special needs or takes medication, I can accommodate and take care of them as needed. I'll provide as much interaction as possible and keep them safe and cared for (whether that's in your home or mine). I have a small, fenced in yard big enough for dogs to run around or play a game of fetch.
