Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have a great love & passion for all animals. Big and small, furry & non-furry. I have worked with just about every kind of animal. I have worked in several pet stores and owned a huge variety of pets. I am dedicated and considerate to the well being of people and their pets. I have cared for pets that needed medicine and insulin so that is definitely an option. I go above and beyond to make sure pets are well cared for in a proper and timely manor. I believe the cost for my services are reasonable and provide excellent customer service. I am trustworthy and dependable to all my clients. You will not be disappointed and look forward to years of service. I love animals with my whole heart and give them the best care possible. It brings me joy spending time with them & comfort to their owners that they are in good hands.

Katie did a great job caring for my bearded dragon while I was gone on vacation for a week. She texted me several times to let me know how he was doing. I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing he was happy and healthy. I would recommend Katie to anyone needing pet care because she is an animal lover, knowledgeable, and responsible.

We had to be out of town for 3 days. Katie helped us by exercising and playing with our 2 dogs while we were gone. She did an excellent job. She sent pictures to us every day. She told us what she did and kept us informed of how the dogs were doing. We will definitely ask for her help the next time we have to leave the dogs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge $15.00-20.00 per visit to the home of the animal for which I am caring for.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After reviewing the job and making sure its a good fit for everyone. The initial first interview for me to meet the client & their pets. A good first impression is very important to me. I want to make sure my client & their pets are comfortable with me.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have worked for several pet stores to gain much needed experience. Petland and Petco for examples. I have references from these pet stores upon request and from past employers. I also have had just about every pet possible. I also have cared for sick animals to dispense medicine and insulin. I also am a licensed and bonded pet sitter.
