About Kara: Business owner, pet sitter, and dog walker.

This is me with Pepper and Raider.

  • My name is Kara. I have had a passion for animals for as long as I can remember and have had numerous pets. I currently have four dogs, a cat, a bearded dragon, fish, and a horse. I also enjoy horseback riding.

My experience with animals includes working with horses at a riding stable as a trail guide, stable hand, and riding instructor. I also worked at a veterinary clinic as an assistant and receptionist from May of 2005 to November of 2012.  I volunteered at the Toledo Zoo from May 2012 to January 2013, as an exhibit guide talking about the animals in Tembo Trail, then in the Education Animal Center taking care of the husbandry of many species of animals.

  • I graduated with Honor from Michigan State University in 2007 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Science. Since then I have been certified as a Dog Obedience Trainer/Instructor in 2009 from Penn Foster.  In 2012 I have also been certified in Pet First Aid.  I am a certified pet sitter through National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS).
  • I have been a member of the Toledo Kennel Club since March 2011 where my dogs and I enjoy obedience and agility.  There I have assisted in the puppy class and home obedience class. I also taught the beginner agility class.
  • As a pet owner and pet lover, I understand the stress and anxiety of leaving your pet at home for long hours during the day or while on vacation. That is why I have decided to create a dependable pet care service to meet your needs.

About Andrea: Pet sitter and dog walker.

Hi I'm Andrea, I am a graduate of Bedford High School class 2003.  I am 32 years old and a mother of 2.  Growing up I was surrounded by animals and have always been able to bond with any animal I was in touch with.  I have three chihuahuas Roscoe, Chubbs and Baxter, a cockatiel named Tico and a bunny named Bugsy.  I worked at the Toledo Zoo after graduating high school and enjoy being around critters of all shapes and sizes.  I spend a huge amount of my time rallying for animals who need a voice but can't speak for themselves.  I can't help myself when it comes to nurturing and protecting every animal I see.  During the last 15 years I have worked for Marco's Pizza, Taco Bell, Toledo Zoo, Food Town and have been a volunteer with the Michigan Humane Society, Humane Ohio and the Lions Den.  I can't wait to meet all of your special friends and help them get the care they need and deserve when you can't be there to do it.


Andrea is also pet sitter certified through NAPPS.
