Daily Dog Walks

This service is great for when you're at work or at an appointment and can't let your dog out to potty or get some exercise. Rates start at $20 per walk/visit for one dog. Rates vary by trip miles, length of walk, number of dogs to be walked, if  the dog is a puppy or untrained, and additional requested tasks. At the end of each visit I either leave a note about the visit or can text/email an update.

Pet Sitting

In your home pet sitting for when you're on vacation or a sudden situation arises, such as a family emergency, and your fur family needs care. Rates start at $18 per visit. Rates vary by trip miles, individual needs/tasks and number of animals who need care. At the end of each visit I either leave a note about the visit or can text/email an update.

Special Needs Services

Last Minute Services

I am here for my clients and their fur babies. If a last minute pet care need arises, I will squeeze you in my schedule to the best of my ability. There is no extra charge for last minute scheduling. All I ask is that the time be flexible. I will work with you!

Overnight Services

Overnights in your home are best for fur babies with separation anxiety issues that will be more at ease with someone there with them during the night. I arrive between 9-10pm and leave the following morning between 6-7 am. This includes potty breaks, treats and breakfast. Rates start at $60 a night for dogs, $50 for cats.

Vet/Pet Supply Pick-Up Services

When your schedule gets busy, I can help by taking your pet to a Vet appointment or picking them up from a hospital stay, picking up pet medications, food, or other supplies. These services start at $30 plus a normal visit rate per hour.

Requesting Pet Care Services

Please contact me by email, [email protected] or phone 267-767-4526, with any questions. Before services can begin, I will schedule a complimentary meet and greet. This will give the animal(s) a chance to meet me and for us to go over a few forms that include Veterinary information, pets health history/feeding/medications, and emergency contacts.

My compassion for animals, combined with my creative life as an artist, led me to begin offering pet portraits in 2010 when I also began my pet care business in PA.

Contact me if you need care for your fur babies or are interested in my art.

My Pet Care Story

As a child I always had animals in my life, from our own pet cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, hamsters, fish, ferrets, mice and reptiles, to spending time on my grandma's farm with the goats, ducks, and chickens. I also rescued a few animals as a child and later in life did years of volunteer work with a cat rescue organization and a wildlife rehabilitation and education center. During that time I worked part time at a pet hotel and was inspired to start my own small pet care business. In 2010, I got certified through NAPPS (National Association of Professional Pet Sitters) and started my business in PA. There, I got the opportunity to care for not only cats and dogs, but chickens, ducks, horses, goats, and various other "pets". I spent three years volunteering with the wildlife rehabilitation center, where I fed baby birds, squirrels, fawns, opossums, beavers and got rabies vaccinated, so I could feed/handle the vector species (raccoons, skunks, groundhogs, and fox). During that time I also completed a Veterinary Assistant Diploma program. In 2015, I got an AA Liberal Studies degree with a concentration in Environmental Science. In 2017 I moved with my family to Ohio and restarted my pet care business. I have been enjoying meeting all the new clients and caring for their fur babies. :)
