The Best Care for Your Best Friendcharleston, SC

COVID19 UPDATE: At this time I am accepting reservations for boarding and drop ins.

Hello! my name is Kelly and I am excited to offer exclusive, affordable & safe alternatives for your furbaby's care.

==>Below are my most popular services (but not limited to) that I offer:<==

---------------------

* DROP INS*

---------------------

Drop Ins are perfect for pet parents who work long days or are out of town. I will come to your house and drop in on your pet for a 30 minute visit. Activities during each visit are custom and based on your pet's needs. Examples include a walk, brushing, feeding, litter scooping, backyard playtime and more. I can also help with any reasonable accident cleanup or request. I will follow your specific instructions for your pet's care while taking pictures/video to send you during my drop in.

-----------------------------

*WEDDING NANNY*

-----------------------------

Getting married and want to include your furbaby in your special day? I can help! I can handle your dog during your photography session with the photographer, and encourage good poses with treats. I can help your dog pose for your photos and attend to all your dogs needs throughout the day. If your dog is in the wedding ceremony, I will coordinate with you or your wedding planner to determine the best solution for a smooth walk down the aisle for your pup and the transition afterwards. Before, during and after your ceremony I will take pictures/video of your pet and will provide to you via text. I can also be available for the wedding rehearsal. My rate also includes transportation for your pup back to your home/hotel/airbnb after the ceremony within 10 miles of the wedding venue. For transportation beyond a 10 mile radius, there will be a $3/per mile additional fee.

My rate for this service is $75 per hour.

----------------------------------

*PET TAXI CONCIERGE*

----------------------------------

Busy schedule and need help with an appointment for your pet? I can safely transport your dog to the vet, groomers or anywhere within reason. I can also return them home. For those needing extra care, I can stay during their grooming or vet appointment and assist with pick up of medication/supplies etc. Please contact me for a custom quote.

---------------------------

*DOG BOARDING*

---------------------------

Your pet will feel like they're going to Aunt Kelly's house because they will be treated like family while they are on vacay with me. My goal is to ensure your dog is safe, comfortable and engaged while in my care.

Currently, I can accommodate furbabies up to 40 pounds. This ensures that your pet will be in a safe environment with similarly sized guests. Guest spaces are limited so that your dog will receive the attention they need & deserve.

My home is very clean, smoke free and located in a safe neighborhood in a golfing community. There are two friendly pets in my home: my calico cat Bella and my dachshund Stella. My home is two stories and a spacious 2012 sq. ft.

I work mostly from home so your pet will have lots of supervision. So that you can keep up with your furbaby's vacay I will send you daily text & picture updates of their adventures!

---------------------

*ABOUT ME*

---------------------

I have love & respect for all animals, big and small, cuddly to scary. My favorite nonprofit is Keeper of the Wild & I donate annually. I have worked with animals my entire life growing up with cows, chickens, dogs, cats, bunnies, a pet duck and squirrel. Additionally, my mom and I have experience rescuing feral kittens, domesticating them and finding them homes. We have also worked with Pet Helpers with their trap, neuter, & release program for adult feral cats. Therefore, I also specialize in feline care. If you need a cat sitter, please contact me:)

Growing up I had three pet dogs from the time I was born until I moved out of my parent's home after college. Because of this I have experience with young pups to senior dogs. I have also volunteered at the Doc Williams SPCA. During my time as a volunteer I adopted a Pomeranian mix that was scheduled to be euthanized after being labeled "aggressive" and "un-adoptable." With time and unconditional TLC he became a lap dog and one of the "cats" :) He was a blessing in my life for ten years and can be seen in several of the pictures on my profile.

If you are vacationing in Charleston, most hotels don't allow dogs and kennels do not provide the family care and attention your dog deserves, so why not have your dog stay with Aunt Kelly? If you're flying out of town my home is located 15 minutes from the airport.

---------------------——

* PICKUP/DROPOFF*

---------------------——

If you are interested in boarding your pup with me please note in your reservation request your anticipated drop-off and pickup time. Pickup/Drop off is by appointment and begins at 8a.m. If you would like to drop off/pickup your pet earlier than 8am, you can request early morning service starting at 6am. Early morning dropoff/pickup is $10.

Pickup hours are as follows:

8am-11am : normal pickup

11am-6pm : daycare pickup $15 per guest

6pm-9pm : evening care pickup $20 per guest

***If you are in need of an animal care service not listed on here just send me a message with your inquiry and I will work with you to accommodate your needs or provide references on who can help.**

**My services are not limited to dogs. I work with cats and exotic pets as well**

---------------------

* HOLIDAYS*

---------------------

***Holidays are a busy time for everyone, pet parents and sitters alike. Therefore, there is a holiday rate of $5 added to the normal rate during these in-demand times of the year (so instead of $30, it would be $35)

Holiday rates apply to the following dates in 2019:

Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples' Day: October 11 - October 15

Thanksgiving: November 27 - November 30

Animal lover- Large fenced in yardSummerville, SC

I love all types of animals. My pets are my family and I will treat yours as family as well. I have 2 dachshunds, one cat, one umbrella cockatoo and a ball python. I have experience in all kinds of animals at all ages, including puppies/kittens and senior dogs. I volunteer at the Charleston Animal Society, fostering kittens and puppies, so I have experience with sick kittens/puppies as well. My animals get along with all other animals whether cat, dog, bird or reptile. I have a large fenced in yard (about a half acre); I will go outside with your dog(s) about every 4 hours to let them do their business and play. I stay outside with them the entire time to make sure everyone gets along and no one tries to escape.

I have experience with dogs who do not get along with others. I have the means to keep them separated if need be. If your dog does not get along with others, please contact me, I can help you.

For drop -in visits on cats - I do not agree with doing 13$ per cat. Therefore it is 13$ for the first cat and 2$ for each extra cat.* Just choose the extra dog option instead while setting up a booking, as rover does not supply an extra cat option at this moment.

Large privacy fence / shady yard!Mount Pleasant, SC

Being away from loved ones can be a very stressful experience for your pet ... and the owner. I offer peace of mind that your four legged fur baby will be well taken care of. I have been blessed to have dogs in my life since childhood. About three years ago my Husband and I rescued 2 dogs. Their personalities couldn't be more different. One is very stoic and just wants to be around people. The other has the spirit of a survivor and a sweet motherly instinct. I enjoy the process of discovering each pets different vocals, body language and methods to communicate wants, needs, feelings and etc... I will work to establish a trusting rapport with your pet, at his pace, in a safe / comfortable environment. I am humbled by our pets innocence and unconditional love. I would be honored to care for your pet.

PAWsome Care When You're Not ThereGoose Creek, SC

††First time Rover client? Ask me about my $20 off promo code!††

↓↓↓PLEASE read my entire profile before contacting me.↓↓↓

If you’re checking out this profile, then you’ve come to the right place. Your pooch will feel right at home in “La Casa de Campbell.” My husband, Tom, and I like to consider our home a “Four Paw Resort.” Here your pooch is treated like the VIP they truly are. We like to think of ourselves as the ultimate vacation spot for your furbaby as well as their home away from home.

When your furbaby stays with us, they will enjoy:

• 24/7 care

• FREE snacks (Ex: milk bones, bacon chews, etc)

• Frequent rubs

• Fresh, cool water to drink daily

• A doggy door so they can go outside as much as they want

• Fun toys to play/chew on

• A big, comfy doggy bed to sleep/relax on (We also provide clean blankets)

• Constant supervision (If Tom & I both briefly have to step out, we have security cameras in and outside the house. We can check on your pet from our smartphones. In fact, we do it with our own dog)

• A spacious yard with a concrete wall to safely roam freely.

• Walks in a safe neighborhood with sidewalks

----------------------------------

WHAT YOU GET

----------------------------------

• Peace of mind knowing that your pooch is in good hands (We are a fully insured business through Pet Sitters Associates LLC)

• A sitter who's been educated on pet first aid/CPR through the American Red Cross

• Flexibility (Plane delayed? Trip extended? Traffic delay? Emergency? I can adapt to your schedule)

• Regular photos/videos of your pooch enjoying his/her STAYCATION at La Casa de Campbell

• Rapid Response (Have a question? Need to reach me while your pet is in my care? My phone is ALWAYS on me)

----------------------------------

EXPERIENCE THAT COUNTS

----------------------------------

My husband and I know a thing or two about taking care of pets, too. Until March 9, 2018, we believe we owned the oldest dog in the Lowcountry, possibly even the state of South Carolina. He was a 20-year-old Dalmatian named Scootie. He was given top-notch care until the very end. We presently own an adorable rescue dog named Bandit (half Chihuahua/half Miniature Pincher). Bandit thinks he's human. He sleeps on his back, prefers people food and loves to wear clothes. In early 2017, he was voted "Lowcountry's Cutest Pet" by the Post & Courier, so he's a celebrity of sorts, and he knows it! In late September 2018, we began fostering an older Dalmatian named Sarge. He is a rescue dog.

I grew up on a farm in the sticks of Berkeley County. So from cows to pigs to chickens, I've had a variety of pets over the years. Tom isn't as much a country bumpkin as I am. He had the usual pets growing up--dogs and even a cat named "Boo Boo Kitty." (Seriously, that was the cat's name.)

----------------------------------

CONSTANT SUPERVISION

----------------------------------

Because Tom and I are both self-employed, we spend the majority of our time working from home. Sixty percent of the time, your dog will have two "critter sitters" carefully looking after them. The other 30 percent of the time, myself, or Tom, will keep a close eye on your pooch. The remaining 10 percent of the time when Tom and I both have to briefly step out, we'll check on them from our smartphones. We have surveillance cameras in and outside of our home. We are high tech like that :-)

----------------------------------

UNDIVIDED ATTENTION

----------------------------------

We are way better than a kennel because we limit our pet intake and dogs are never caged/crated (unless the dog's owner requests it.. SEE BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS). We believe that your dog deserves lots of 1-on-1 time. Limiting our dog intake for the most part also allows us to give your dog the best experience possible. We generally board no more than *3 dogs at a time and leave 2 spots available for daycare. Depending on when you book, your pup could very well be the only one in our care.

*PLEASE BE AWARE: On rare occasions, but particularly around a holiday, we may exceed our limit due to a client who may need to extend the stay of their pet or a regular client who needs a last minute sitter. Our house will never be a "zoo," but if this is an issue for you, we wish you the best of luck in your sitter search. I can assure you, however, other sitters face similar situations at times. For the sake of transparency, we are upfront about it. 90% of the time, we stay within our limit or less.

----------------------------------

OUR HOME

----------------------------------

My husband and I live in a spacious 1.5 story home with a big backyard in the Woodland Lakes subdivision located in the heart of Goose Creek. We sit adjacent to Goose Creek City Hall and the Goose Creek Police Department. When your pet stays with us, you can rest easy knowing he/she is in a safe, nice neighborhood.

----------------------------------

OUR BACKGROUNDS

----------------------------------

Before our 2016 New Year's Eve wedding, Tom and I used to work together for several years at a local TV station in the Charleston area. My background is in journalism and his is in IT and engineering. Tom also has his own IT company. He left the TV station in 2016 to focus on his company full time. I have my own PR company as well as manage a popular Lowcountry news site. Tom and I are both very active in our communities, too. He is a longtime member of The Exchange Club of Charleston. I'm a wish granter for Make-A-Wish. I'm also a reserve deputy sheriff for a nearby county.

Paw Bed and PlayCharleston, SC

My first love was the sea, to answer that calling I joined the Navy. I have lived many places but recently moved to Charleston. My real passion is animals. I have rescued 7 dogs and fostered 6 dogs. I will take care of your pets as if they were my own. My dogs have had to overcome many obstacles since 6 of them were rescues. Some had health issues, fear of people, but mainly they just wanted love. They have given me the skills to care for other dogs with great understanding of their needs. It gives me get pleasure to take care of animals. It brings a peace to me.

I have a large fenced in yard for the dogs to play in. The dogs have the run of the house just like if they were at home.

A typical day would start off with a trip to the backyard to take care of business. Breakfast would then be served, followed by nap time for the older dogs and play time for the younger dogs. Time for mid-morning play outside. Afternoon play time. Late afternoon yard playing. Dinner time and then cuddle time.

I’ll run with your dog!Charleston, SC

I grew up with dogs and currently have a very friendly senior dog that I’ve had for over 17 years! I’m happy to take your dog on a daily walk and can even take them on a run upon request!

They are also welcome in my home, my husband and I are both dog lovers. However, we cannot accept extremely high energy dogs as our Harvey is not as steady on his feet as he once was. Although, we’re happy to do a meet and greet to ensure compatibility. We have a large home with a huge fenced in back yard in a dog friendly neighborhood. They will get plenty of exercise using our doggy door to run around in our back yard, go on daily walks with our dog and I can take them running with me upon request.

I work from home during the summer and I’m also available most weekends!
