New Pet Sitter for Cape May, Cape May Court House, Rio Grande, Wildwood, Cape May Point and the Villas!

I'd like to welcome our new Cape May County sitter, Kathryn to our crew! 

Kathryn 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.

She 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!

New Pet Sitter for Egg Harbor Township, Mays Landing, Egg Harbor City, Estelle Manor, Absecon, Brigantine, Galloway, Pleasantville, and Somers Point!
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 service!
