From being a lover of animals in his childhood to transitioning to a career in pet boarding, Buddy is someone who has been an avid pet lover his entire life. 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.

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.

Victoria has been surrounded by animal companions since she was a baby. In 2015 she followed her heart and started working at a dog daycare and suddenly life made a little bit more sense.
After leaving the daycare, she wanted to continue caring for more pets than just her own, so pet sitting was the next logical step. She believes that pets aren’t just pets, they are family. Victoria wants to care for your furry family members so you don’t have to worry while away from home and make sure no detail is left undone.
In the future, Victoria hopes to help save animal lives through rescue organizations or veterinary medicine. Her ultimate life goals are to be an advocate for all animals and help spread the joy that animals can bring to everyone around her. She wants to meet as many animals - including the more exotic ones - as possible.
Tina W. - Edmond
Simply stated, Tina LOVES animals. She has grown up with and cared for them her whole life. In Texas she grew up with dogs, cats and a pinto pony. 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. Tina served the last year as the Volunteer Coordinator. While volunteering at the Edmond shelter, she co-created Community Cat Coalition of Edmond which concentrates on caring for and decreasing the feral cat populations around the Edmond area.

Courtney M. - Northwest OKC
Courtney has always had two, if not more, animals at any given time. She’s never met an animal of any sort that she hasn’t instantly fallen in love with. Starting with a childhood pet cat named Smokey Joe, then a dog, Buddy, came along and it kept going from there.
Currently, she adopted an orange tabby named Zazu and has a Great Pyrenees/Australian Shephard mix named Luna that just turned a year old in February of 2017. Whether it’s volunteering at her local animal shelter, raising funds for animals in need, or helping out at the local rescue’s adoption days, she’s always had a special place for animals in her heart.
When Courtney isn’t working with Carey Pet clients, you can usually find her with Luna either at the dog park or on the walking trails around the City. Courtney promises to take care of your pets as if they were children because that’s what your pets are; your furry children. To Courtney, her animals are her world, so why wouldn’t it be the same for everyone else, too? She’s comfortable taking every means necessary to make sure your baby/babies are well taken care of.
Kirby J. - OKC Metro
Since the age of 18 Kirby has been professionally working with animals and knows this is her passion! 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 the home care as well!
Genny M. - South OKC/West Moore
Genny has always lived in homes with pets and believes that it takes a house with pets to make it a home. Growing up in Washington State, she worked as a pet sitter taking care of dogs, cats, small mammals, and occasionally chickens.
Before moving to Oklahoma, Genny spent a couple years in Texas working as a pet sitter where her client list included a hissy “speedy” Russian tortoise named Ivan.
Genny enjoys meeting and making new animal friends and giving clients the reassurance that they will find their house in better shape than they left it. Genny is a current volunteer for the Central Oklahoma Humane Society and the local libraries.
Robert H. - Edmond
Caring for and showing respect to our fellow beings on this earth has been more and more important to Robert through the years. Along with his wife, Robert has taken care of a feral cat colony for many years.
As many come and many go, Robert has loved and respected them all. Part of the care for the feral colony is assisting with TNR (trap, neuter/spay and release) so that controlling stray populations can be accomplished. Robert’s care for feral cats and other volunteering activities, including rabbit and primate sanctuaries, has easily translated into a wish to take care of pets and animals full time. Pet sitting seemed like the perfect thing to do!
Aside from the care of animals, his main interests include reading and studying of religion and theology. Robert received his Master’s Degree in 2004. Music and art are also intrinsic to his life - appreciating music from all cultures is a lifelong past-time of his.
Pet care and pet sitting is something that Robert thoroughly enjoys because he gets instant satisfaction from seeing a pet’s happy face when he comes to feed, care for and love on him/her. Giving this attention and love to not only his animals, but the pets of others, brings a sense of joy that only a true pet lover can appreciate.
Robert feels that clients allowing us to come into their homes and care for the animals which they cherish as children is an act that is truly sacred. Clients can be sure that he will give their pets all of the love, attention, and care that they need and require.

Emilie E. - Norman
As a child, Emilie's pets were always some kind of small, furry critter. This included mice, hamsters, and rats, as well as some neighborhood cats. When she moved into her own place, she was finally able to adopt the cats she had always wanted.
First came Darjeeling, an adorable friendly brown tabby. This led her to employment at the Cat Clinic of Norman, where she enjoyed spending time with the numerous clinic cats, as well as the patients and learned a number of useful medical skills. She loves spending time with the semi-feral kitties, getting them more comfortable with people.
An older orange kitty came to the clinic from one of the shelters with a number of health problems. He wanted affection, but had trouble expressing this from his years of living outside. She fostered him so he could have experience in a loving home. The situation turned out so well that he was added to her home permanently and given the name Theoden. Add to that four rats named Gabriel, Gabby, Everest, and Denali, and Emilie and her fiance have a very happy, cozy home.
Currently, Emilie is studying social work, with the hopes of getting into animal-assisted therapy. She fosters with Purcell Animal Welfare, Pet Angels Rescue, and wants to start working with a newly started rat rescue in Oklahoma City. Much of her free time is spent knitting with either a cat on her lap or a rat in her shirt. She looks forward to meeting your feathered, furred, scaled, or even hairless pets, big and small, and treating them with all the love, respect and care that they deserve and more!
Jonni B. - Central OKC
Jonni has been pet sitting ever since her older siblings needed someone to watch their pets while out of town. This she enjoyed without getting compensated except for the pure joy of being with the animals. That was a few decades ago.
In 2012 Jonni became a registered veterinary technician. She worked at a 24/7 vet hospital for 7 ½ years. Friends started asking her to watch their pets and homes whenever they traveled out of town. They compliment her by saying they never worry about their pets under her watch.
Up until last year, Jonni volunteered with a therapeutic horse riding program for special needs children and adult, which she found very rewarding. She also volunteers for OKC Animal Welfare. Jonni loves to travel and used to do so for previous jobs. She understands the importance of home and pets being properly taken care of.
Lucy C. - Norman
Animals have been the main love of Lucy's life ever since she was a young girl. Growing up she always had animals in her life and was always trusted with their love and care. At 10 years old, she was volunteering at her local children's zoo, and helping with the farm animals; which included about 50 goats and sheep to keep them safely in their enclosures and watching to be sure the public treated them with care and respect. Lucy always had animals and regularly adopted cats that she took with her everywhere, even when she went away for the summer with her grandparents.
As a young teen she became involved in 4H and did obedience training with her dog and even did demonstrations at the yearly state fairs. As her awareness grew she became involved in non-profit organizations such as Massachusetts Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals, working diligently to raise money to help animals in need and raise awareness about animal abuse. Even when working full time she always made time to volunteer in shelters doing everything from dog walking, to cleaning cages & kennels and giving much needed love and attention to animals awaiting forever homes.
Before moving to Norman, Oklahoma she volunteered for Fidelco Guide Foundation, which breeds, trains, and places exclusively German Shepherd dogs for people who are blind or visually impaired. She has never met an animal, four legged, two legged or no legs that she didn’t have the utmost compassion and care for. She is an extremely professional, calm, caring individual who would always go the extra mile to be sure your pets, fur-babies, and all other family members along with your home are cared for exactly the way you would want and expect from someone you trust with their care.
She currently lives with a 5-year-old 100-pound German Shepherd Guide dog Tonka, and her cat Lily who she rescued and raised from a feral, sickly kitten to a beautiful 10 yr old cat who she transported all the way from Massachusetts to Oklahoma.
