I am trained and certified in pet CPR, emergency response, and first aid.
I am comfortable with administering pills, fluids, injections, etc.
A pet owner and foster myself, I truly understand how important your pets’ safety, and happiness are to you.
You don’t have to worry about financial loss if something happens to your pet or property on my watch.
Worry free in-home love and care for your furry little ones reduces stress for both you and your pets.
With or without pets house sitting will protect your belongings and your peace of mind while you’re away.
I hail from SE Texas but moved to Austin in 2010.
I had an office job here in ATX for seven years but I finally mustered up the courage to quit and pursue my passion… working with and caring for animals!
After quitting my office job I worked at a doggy daycare facility as a kennel technician and learned more than I could have imagined about dogs! There they taught us how to train, socialize, observe, and care for dogs of all temperaments, shapes, and sizes.
I am owned by three cats, one dog, 6 chickens, and lots of fish.
Handmaking skincare is my second passion. You can find it over at Bee Kind Soapery.
I love training dogs and working with behavioral issues so that I can improve the life of the dog and its family members. I hope to one day become a professional dog trainer!
I consider myself a cat whisperer and have always been called a “crazy cat lady” by my peers.
I attended college for about four years studying business before I switched paths to geology. I realized it still wasn’t the correct career path for me (though I am an avid rock hound to this day) and that I could learn much better about my true passions (animals and skin care) outside of the confines of college.
Originally from Maryland, Kristy moved to Austin in 2014.
She has been enamored with animals ever since she could say “dog”.
Kristy has 9 years of pet sitting experience!
She has been volunteering her time to assist with animal rescue since 2012 and has even worked at a local favorite, Austin Pets Alive! helping out the amazing medical team. In addition to APA! she volunteered in MD assisting the behavior specialist and foster care program at the local animal welfare league.
Kristy started as a veterinary technician at a local animal hospital in 2014 and was quickly made lead vet tech on account of her dedication to and passion for animals. She has recently cut back on hours (but still currently practicing) at the hospital to focus on pet sitting and volunteering as this is what truly makes her happy.
