Meet Cris Carey

Owner

Cris grew up on an 80-acre Hereford farm in Indiana with many other animals to care for. She learned early on that no matter what, the animals had to be cared for. They don’t know it’s Christmas Day and you want to take the day off – they all still had to be fed before the presents were opened! Cris has been passionate about animals and remembers fondly the farm life where she raised and cared for both family pets and livestock. She also learned the many responsibilities of pet ownership and the fact that sometimes you need backup when things happen in life.

Cris worked 20+ years in various aspects of business operations in her “previous life.” In 2005, she combined that knowledge and experience with her passion and love for animals to start Carey Pet & Home Care.

About Our Sitters

Joyce

Joyce W.

OKC Metro

…Currently, Joyce has two fur babies and takes her therapy dog, Kloey, to visit at the Moore School District several times a week and also to area hospitals, children’s homes, nursing homes, libraries, DHS, and other organizations sponsoring Therapy Dog visits.

Joyce decided to be a pet sitter after retiring from working for years in the administrative field and served in the United States Army Reserves for 25 years as well. She was looking for something different and most of all, fun. She loves the welcome she receives from the pets and the appreciation they give for her attention. Joyce enjoys every pet she cares for as each one has a unique personality and holds a special place in her heart. Joyce realizes how important it is that our clients feel their homes and pets will be secure and safe when they are away.

Buddy

Buddy G.

Edmond

…Since retiring from a dog boarding business he owned for more than 25 years, he now continues to pursue his passion and love for animals as a Pet Sitter for Carey Pet & Home Care.

When Buddy is not pet sitting, he can be found at home cuddling with his own four dogs. In addition to working with dogs, Buddy rode and trained horses for many years. Buddy has a multitude of reasons he loves pet sitting. He loves it because of the variety of breeds and the attitudes of each that he encounters when doing visits. He also enjoys the relationships that he has built with the pets and the many different adventures he has experienced while caring for them.

Buddy believes clients will feel comfortable with him because he is honest, caring, and knows the importance of giving their animals the utmost care. Not only will he deliver the highest level of care to clients’ pets, he will also be respectful of their homes. Buddy believes it is an honor he gets to do something he is so passionate about as a career.

Tina

Tina W.

Edmond

…As a child she brought many strays home, even attempting to hide kittens in her bedroom closet. Her parents learned quickly her passion for rescue.

She volunteered for four years with Paws for Life Inc. at the Edmond Animal Shelter, co-founded the Community Cat Coalition of Edmond which concentrates on TNR (trap, neuter, release), for the feral cat populations around the Edmond area.

She has been pet sitting for friends and family for years. Tina is very much looking forward to caring for your fur, feather and scale kids. She will absolutely love and treat your four-legged kids as her own.

Kirby J.

Kirby J.

OKC Metro

…For the last 8 years Kirby has been working with animals in various forms. She has worked at doggy daycares, fostered for the Central Oklahoma Humane Society, eventually moved on to graduate Animal Behavior College as a Certified Dog Trainer and actively trained for a year at a dog training business before coming back to pet sitting full time! Kirby currently has two animals; a lab mix named Kaj, and a cat named Dragon!

Over the years Kirby has found caring for pets a true stress reliever, which is why she loves pet sitting. The unconditional affection from a pet is a very healing property that makes every day great! Kirby is confident that you can have peace of mind knowing she will care for your pets as she cares for her own! She treats every animal, from snakes to dogs and everything in-between, with dignity, love, and respect. That goes for home care as well!

Caitlin

Caitlin L.

Edmond

…Her mother was an avid animal rescuer. It didn’t matter what kind of animal it was, if it needed help, she and her mother would drop what they were doing to help. No matter where Caitlin was, she was always around animals. Home just didn’t feel like home pets!

Aside from rescues, her family also had a passion for Chihuahuas and always had at least three at any given time. Caitlin also helped her grandmother at cat shows. Caitlin’s interests outside of pet sitting consists of photography and making dreamcatchers.

Caitlin became interested in pet sitting because she recently started going to college for digital design/web development and can’t have animals at college. Caitlin deeply missed always having animals in her daily life and pet sitting gives her that “pet fix” she needs!

Growing up with different types of animals taught her responsibility, compassion and commitment. Caitlin believes that these qualities will help Carey Pet clients feel comfortable with her caring for their homes and four-legged family members.

Joni

Joni M.

Edmond

…She’s always had dogs in her life –usually adopted– from a Yorkie to a German Shepherd. She’s also had cats, birds, fish, reptiles, rodents, and has rescued multitudes of strays and wildlife. Every one of them has been a joy to her and lived their “best life” possible.

Joni is recently retired from the Department of Homeland Security and has been eagerly waiting to spend the rest of her life loving and caring for animals. Pet sitting is the perfect avenue for spreading love to many new friends – finned, feathered and furry! Having done volunteer work for a rescue sanctuary, Joni realizes that all animals really want is love and care to respond with the purest form of unconditional love. She will always find joy in providing that love and care to your babies while respecting your guidance and property.

Allison

Allison T.

North OKC Metro

…She is compassionate about many things in her life, but what stands out the most is her passion for animals. Her love for animals stems back as far as she can remember and is easily seen through her interactions with them.

Allison graduated from Texas Tech University in 2004 with a B.S. in Wildlife Management. She did some seasonal work with wild Rio Grande Turkey in Kansas and the endangered species Lesser-Prairie Chicken in New Mexico. However, she has dedicated the majority of her career to the veterinary medical field.

She owned her own pet sitting business for four years, which included sitting not only dogs and cats, but also horses, wild mountain lions, lynx and bobcats. But she cares for all animals, no matter how big or small, wild or domestic. Allison feels her life would not be as fulfilling if it weren’t for the presence of these divine creatures, including her own cat, Holiday.

Lindsay B.

Lindsay B.

Yukon/West OKC Metro

…it only made sense that she continued to surround herself with animals as an adult. She has six dogs and four cats of her own but still decided her heart had so much more room to work with animals as well.

In 2016 she started “officially” rescuing and fostering for rescues but after numerous foster-fails, she decided to investigate other animal rescue avenues. She started working at Free To Live Animal Sanctuary in Guthrie and eventually accepted a management position to live on property and take care of 300 animals 24/7. And she plans to one day have a rescue of her very own.

Now Lindsay is excited to move on to the next chapter of pet sitting and can’t wait to love on your babies and treat them as if they are her own!

Hillari S - pet sitter

Hillari S.

Far NW OKC

…She’s always found comfort and unconditional love from pets. Hillari says the sound of a cat purring is one of the most calming sounds on this earth.

Currently, Hillari has four cats of her own and has been fostering kittens since April 2021. She specializes in neonate and gruel kittens so she understands how to take special care of animals. When she’s not home with her own cats, Hillari enjoys playing volleyball or exploring the wide variety of craft beer.

She has first-hand experience in needing a pet sitter and the anxiety of leaving them with someone else. Rest assured she will make sure your pets receive excellent care while you are away.
