Introduction: Pets are my everything! I offer a variety of pet care services, which allow your pets to feel safe, cared for, and enriched. I provide pet sitting, dog fitness, and transport services with a focus on dependability, professionalism and compassion. I was born and raised in San Antonio and grew up surrounded by animals. As a teenager, I began rescuing strays and helped them acclimate to new home environments. It was a great feeling to see them regain trust, allowing them to blossom into their adorable, loving personalities! This is the same feeling that I get with the pets that I care for, as they get to know me and realize that we are going to become the greatest of friends. We currently service the following areas: Central and North East San Antonio, TX, including: 78148, 78201, 78204, 78205, 78208, 78209, 78210, 78212, 78215, 78216, 78217, 78218, 78232, 78233 Please visit my website for more details on our services.

Pet Sitting

The Happy Paws team did an excellent job caring for my cats while I was away. Christine provided quick responses from first contact and scheduling the dates I needed pet care could not have been easier. They provided thorough daily updates and photos that were more than reassuring that my cats were being well cared for. One of my cats requires daily medication which was expertly handled. I will definitely be using Happy Paws Fit & Sit for any future pet care needs.

Pet Sitting

Christine is the best! Backstory: My dog has IMHA and when he was diagnosed, it was around the time of he needing is yearly bordetella vaccine. His vet stated they recommend waiting until his PCV count is stable at a higher volume. So, I couldn't board at the usual facility because they wouldn't board him without the vaccine. Marley also has his own little pharmacy due to his anemia so I did not want that burden on any friends. So I searched Thumbtack, she popped up first and had the highest rating AND the best value. Turns out my friends have used her services as well. I went out of the country and walked her through everything I possibly could because I would be out of reach for at least 72 hours. I asked Christine to send updates to my emergency contact as she knew how to get ahold of me. Christine did just that. I had my first update Thursday even with a freaking adorable picture of Marley all comfy on the couch getting rubs and snuggles. The next day, I got a model worthy picture that could be his Tinder profile picture, haha. When I hit stateside, I let her know that I was almost home. I came home to daily journals of everything. All the activities, the food, the meds, breaks...everything detailed. She followed the medicine schedule I have on the fridge and marked off the way I do. It's like I was home. Not a beat was missed. She is the best and I WILL be using her from now on whenever I travel.

Dog Walking

This service has been incredible! Christine is excellent with my puppy, Dakota. It's been so nice having someone take Dakota for extra walks and runs. I live in an apartment and Dakota is a medium sized dog that needs daily exercise. Christine is also training her how to follow specific commands. I've seen a vast improvement! Thank you Happy Paws Fit & Sit! 😃

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

    We schedule a complimentary meet and greet to customize a plan to meet the needs of your household. At this visit, I would get to know your pets and understand their routine to make sure that they are receiving the same level of care that they are accustomed to when you are around.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have served customers throughout San Antonio and the surrounding areas. I have worked with cats, dogs, reptiles, rabbits, and fish, each of which vary in size, health, age, and temperament. I have experience in dispensing medication, maintaining tanks and habitats, and working with socially anxious pets.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
