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.

After 20+ years working in various aspects of business operations, she combined that knowledge with her passion and love for animals to start Carey Pet & Home Care.

Will may spend the majority of his time in the Carey Pet office, but gladly jumps at the chance to get out in the field and bring some comfort and joy to your furry friends.

Will currently has three rescue cats and most of his life has had a cuddly furry friend. His love of animals comes from his parents. His mother has lived almost all her 70 years with animals and his father bred champion Greyhound racers.

…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.

Lyn

Lyn has trained several dogs in obedience and agility, and she introduces her foster dogs to obedience training, even the puppies, during their stay with her.

Lyn is retired from the Federal Government and was a disaster volunteer for the American Red Cross for 10 years. Lyn thinks pet sitting is the ideal job. Being greeted by wagging tails and slurpy kisses make her day. She looks forward to taking care of her client’s pets the same way she would look after her own.

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

Kirby J.

OKC Metro

…She’s owned a variety of animals including snakes, fish, rodents, dogs and cats since the age of 5 when she got her first dog – a Dachshund.

Over the years, she has found pets are true stress relievers, which is why she loves pet sitting. The unconditional affection from a pet is a very healing property that makes every day great! Kirby has been volunteering for and fostering for Central Oklahoma Humane Society since 2014 specializing in dogs with PTSD, anxiety and other behavioral issues.

The pet who touched her heart the most so far was a Doberman named Oscar who had no eyes. He went to dog daycare almost every day and played with the pack like he didn’t even realize his ailment! It was very heartwarming.

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!

Amber

Amber B.

Central OKC

…She’s always had an animal in her life at any given time…dogs, cats, birds and ferrets. Amber has always had a passion for animals and taking care of them. She gets excited before she walks into her house because she knows that her fur babies are there to greet her and give lots of kisses. Animals bring her JOY!

Amber has been working in the veterinary field as a veterinary technician for over 10 years. She also has fostered for The Bella Foundation and became a “foster-fail” when she adopted the puppy she was fostering. She loves teaching her children how to take care of animals, just like she was taught. Her family’s holiday tradition is to take their children along with our 4 dogs and go look at Christmas lights.

She would love the opportunity to take care of your babies! Amber has done pet sitting for family and friends for many years. She feels that it is a privilege when someone allows her to take care of their babies. Amber would LOVE to spoil your BABIES, like she does hers!

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.

Michele

Michele B.

The Village/Nichols Hills/Belle Isle

…Michele couldn’t imagine living her life without them and decided that caring for shelter animals and pet sitting other people’s animals would be the perfect solution to fulfill her desire to help both animals and people, while also providing fulfillment to what speaks to her heart.

Michele lived in the Virgin Islands for 20 years as co-owner of an exclusive property management business and is also a licensed Esthetician. In her free time, she enjoys music, dancing, reading and research, but most of all she enjoys being outside as much as possible exploring, taking walks and hikes in nature.

She is used to caring for and looking after people’s homes and their beloved animals providing much needed peace of mind in their absence. Michele is a Foster Volunteer with Central Oklahoma Humane Society helping save lives while providing a great start to future forever homes. Michele truly feels animals are family members and knows from experience how important it is to have someone you can trust and count on to provide them with not only fresh food and water but also loving care and affection while you are away from home. Responsible, organized, trustworthy, loyal, kind and cheerful are words that describe her and you will feel completely at ease knowing that your animals and home will be in excellent caring and compassionate hands.

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.

Melody

Melody N.

Del City/Downtown OKC

…She has cared for friends and neighbors pets for about 5 years including two slobbering bullmastiffs, five prize 4H goats, and cats galore. Loving the pet sitting she has done for others, which kept her happily active, she wanted to do more pet sitting and care for Carey Pet clients.

She has four dogs and a cat – all rescue pets. The cat was from one of her former VA hospice patients, assuring him she would take good care of his cat which put the patient at ease. Melody loves animals and will care for your pet/s with that same love and passion.

Savannah

Savannah T.

SW OKC

…At the age of 17, Savannah quit her job in foodservice and started working as a Veterinary Assistant, and she found her passion! Savannah is working full-time as the Senior Veterinary Technician at her current clinic. Every day, she cares for patients, no matter how big or small, assisting in surgeries, dental procedures, drawing blood, placing IV catheters, administering vaccines, and so much more!

She is currently studying Biology and hopes to attend the University of Central Oklahoma very soon in the future! In her spare time, Savannah enjoys cross-stitching, needle felting, reading, and playing video games. Savannah has her own family of furry companions consisting of her Pitbull named Daisy, her Pitbull mix named Nova, her Calico kitty named Luna, and her Tortie kitty named Tori! Fun fact: Savannah has had Tori since she was just a kitten and Savannah was only 5 years old!

Savannah has lots of experience with animals of all ages and sizes! Being a Veterinary Technician, Savannah has learned all about many different breeds, health conditions, and the personalities that come alongside every individual animal, and what makes each of them special and unique. On top of that, she knows how it is to care for her own pets with chronic illnesses as well. Savannah looks forward to meeting your pets and understanding their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, so she may care for them like they were her own.

Allison

Allison T.

S OKC/Moore/Norman

…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.

Bailey B.

Bailey B.

Mustang/Tuttle/Yukon/Newcastle

…Once at college, she realized she was missing that important part of her life which spurred her to work at her local vet clinic. There she not only ran the reception desk, but also helped with any vet assistant duties or kennel cleaning.
Bailey currently has two dogs and knows what it is like to leave them when going out of town. She wanted to help others by caring for their animals when they also need to leave town or go on vacation. So she decided pet sitting was the best way to not only help animals, but also help their people feel at ease that everything will be taken care of.
Being very detail-oriented, loving, and realizing that your pets are members of your family, Bailey will care for your animals like they were her own. Her biggest hope is to provide a comfortable and fun experience for your pet, while also ensuring you that everything is taken care of back home.

Lindsay B.

Lindsay B..

South & Metro OKC

…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!
