My name is Julie and I have loved animals since I was a small child. My husband and I have 3 cats currently (2 more then we originally expected to have) and had a dog ten years before it passed away. I have a 4-year degree in Asian studies. Currently, in addition to working for Fetch!, I have a small business selling arts and crafts. I also enjoy writing, music and fashion.
I enjoy 24-hour dog sitting as well as overnight services in your home. I am currently visiting an adorable puppy 5 days/week. If I'm having a bad day, she always cheers me up and I am grinning by the time I leave!
Since we don't have children or a dog, I am free to stay over and care for your pet without any worries that my own are missing out. I hope you consider hiring this quiet nerd to care for your pups!
Karin & Tom each have had cats & dogs in their lives, both before and after marriage, and just love animals. Tom recently retired from the real estate profession, and Karin works part time, so they have plenty of time to board your dog, or visit your home to feed, care, cuddle, and walk your best friend. Tom first started as a pet caretaker when he was 10 years old, when his father’s co-worker went on vacation and knew that Tom was a reliable, responsible person. Their last dog, a loving Beagle mix named Bix, became diabetic, so they both had to learn to give insulin shots twice a day for the remaining five years of Bix’s life. When you are on vacation, you can be assured that your furry friend will be in safe, loving and comfortable surroundings. You will also receive daily updates and pictures while you are away. Our home is in Zelienople, with a large back yard backing up to woods, and our neighborhood is large enough for a 40 minute walk, or shorter if another route is taken. Karin & Tom will care for your best friend like it was our best friend.
Kimberly first got her start pet sitting as a child when her neighbors went on summer vacations. She’d be solely responsible for the house keys and taking care of the pets as directed and on time.

She also worked as an obedience dog trainer for several years. Kimberly has volunteered in many animal shelters, including Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah. She has shared her personal life with cats living to as ‘young’ as 20 years of age. To say the least, Kim loves animals, and animals love her back. The job is intrinsically rewarding.

In addition to my work in rescue, I took courses through the Community Colleges in animal care, first aid, pet sitting, animal health issues and other things that would make me a better pet sitter and now I am living my dream!
