Meet Karen

Hi, My name is Karen and I will provide pet sitting in your own home or in mine. I can come as needed and provide company for your pets, walks, play time, and giving medication if needed. I have always loved animals and currently have a Dog, 2 Cats, 2 Turtles and a Bearded Dragon. I also have had fish, frogs, birds and a chinchilla in the past. I would love to have the opportunity to take care of yours! My current dog is half Chow and half Newfoundland so big dogs are perfectly fine with me. I am Pet CPR/First Aid certified and can provide you with proof of my Certification. I left my job of 23 years in order to follow my passions. I currently have a Grief and Loss Counseling business (which also includes Pet Loss) which was one passion. And animals are the other! I look forward to hearing from you!

Our cat sitter of many years got married and moved away, so we turned to for suggestions. Karen had great reviews and was local, so we crossed our fingers and asked her to visit our two 12-year old cats, twice a day, for several days in order to feed them, clean their litter, and feed the outside birds. She is fantastic!!! Karen sent us photos and a brief update each day, which removed any anxiety of having a new caregiver for our cats. Both our cats, including a shy one who typically hides from all strangers, were at ease with Karen and let her pet them from their first meeting. Karen is extremely organized, taking detailed notes when we first met, and requesting that we provide an authorization letter that she could use in the unlikely event our cats needed medical attention while we were away. We couldn't have found a better caregiver for our cats than Karen, and we highly recommend her!!

I have had animals all of my life. I have had dogs that needed medications and special attention so I am available to do that for you in almost all situations. I also am available to bring your animal to the Vet if that is needed.
