Meet Beth

I started cleaning cages at the veterinary office in Malta, IL when I was in 7th grade. I knew then I wanted to work with animals. I went to college at NMSU, now Truman Univ, in Kirksville, MO, from 1985-1987 and received my certification as a Veterinary Technician. I worked in IL as a technician from August of 1987-March of 1995. I moved to Colorado Springs and worked as a technician part time until August of 2007 while waiting tables. I started pet sitting in 1995 when I offered to help a client with pet care. The place I worked at did not do boarding. I LOVE that... more
I started cleaning cages at the veterinary office in Malta, IL when I was in 7th grade. I knew then I wanted to work with animals. I went to college at NMSU, now Truman Univ, in Kirksville, MO, from 1985-1987 and received my certification as a Veterinary Technician. I worked in IL as a technician from August of 1987-March of 1995. I moved to Colorado Springs and worked as a technician part time until August of 2007 while waiting tables. I started pet sitting in 1995 when I offered to help a client with pet care. The place I worked at did not do boarding. I LOVE that part of the pet care and have been doing it ever since. Being a technician allows me to offer more services, such as insulin shots, fluid therapy, post-surgery care, and administration of medication and the knowledge of the drug. As I get older, I find the environment in the veterinary clinic wears on my emotions a bit more than usual. Pet sitting allows me to still care for animals but in a more comfortable environment. I love meeting new people as well, hence all my years as a waitress! I look at each experience as a long-term friendship, with the owner and the pets!

Beth is beyond phenomenal. She is caring, considerate, and goes above and beyond to provide the best care she possibly can. I was incredibly lucky to have found her.

Beth watched our cats while we were on vacation and did a fabulous job. She kept them on their diet and gave eye drops to one of them daily. She is wonderful and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Brittany H. says:
Beth watched our two feline fur babies for us for two and a half weeks over the holidays. I can't say enough about her! She made me feel such at ease leaving our home and animals behind for so long. I never had any concerns and was about to enjoy our vacation. Thank you Beth for everything! If you're looking for a great pet sitter that goes above and beyond when necessary then this is your girl! I will definitely... More

Alyssa P. says:
Beth recently watched our two 8 year old black labs and did a wonderful job. We will definitely be using her again and highly recommend her to others. She kept us notified as to what the dogs were up to, visited them at least 3 times a day and took them for daily outings. We came back to happy healthy dogs. Your vacations are that much better when you are confident with your pet care giver - knowing they... More

My family has used Beth for a dog sitter four times so far and are extremely satisfied! Not only is she great with the animals, shes a great house sitter as well. Its nice to know when away for long periods someone is taking care of your pets and your home.

After initial contact we met in person at our home so she could get a feel for our dogs and go over the house. It was nice to know that she would be familiar...
