like to welcome our new Cape May County sitter, Kathryn to our crew!
is originally from Mickleton, NJ, where her love for animals began! Growing up, she always had pets, including a basset hound,
cats, birds, fish, and rabbits.
moved to North Cape May in 2015 where she now lives with her fiance, two stepdaughters, and her lab mix Abby!
Her previous animal experience includes volunteering with cats at a Petco
store through the Camden County Animal Shelter. She worked adoption hours where she met with prospective adopters, along with
taking care of the kittens and cats staying at Petco. Her hectic schedule at the time (she worked at CBS News in NYC and commuted
from South Jersey) took her away from volunteering, but now that she lives in Cape May County full time, she wanted to continue
working with animals in her free time.
Her current full time job is in advertising with a local paper. Her dog Abby is her reason for
wanting to work with animals. She knows how much she treasures her, and she would only leave her in the best care possible,
so she would like to provide that for others! She looks forward to working with our clients!
We'd like to welcome Caitlin to our crew! Caitlin has lived in New Jersey
all her life.
She grew up with animals and loved every second of it! She has cared for many types of animals throughout her
life, including: hermit crabs, fish, geckos, guinea pigs, parakeets, rabbits, cats, dogs, ducks, chickens, guinea hens, goats,
pigs, horses, cows, and more!
She grew up in a family that always viewed caring for animals as a part of life. They were constantly rescuing
stray cats that were abandoned, getting them spayed/ neutered, and making sure they had their shots. Most of them could live
outdoors, as she lived in a farmhouse off the beaten path, with no traffic.
As a young girl, she volunteered at a no-kill animal
shelter in Washington, NJ called Common Sense for Animals. She also helped raise money, along with food and item donations
for the animals at the shelter as a project for her Silver Award in Girl Scouts.
She has worked at two dog kennels/ dog daycare
facilities, as an assistant dog trainer and overall caretaker.
She spent most of her time on horse farms as a girl, riding horses
and taking care of them. She rescued a foal at the age of nine and with the help of her mom, raised him to be a wonderful
horse. When he was old enough to ride, she trained him and showed in hunter-jumper, and then in dressage and eventing.
Animals are an essential part
of her life and she considers them "friends" and "family members" rather than just pets.
Outside of her animal life she
works as a corporate customer care representative for a large company, so she understands the importance of outstanding customer
