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.

Caitlin L. - Edmond
Caitlin was raised around animals of all kinds; dogs, cats, donkeys, goats, llamas, rabbits, lizards, etc. 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 go 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.

Jan D. - Central/Northwest OKC
Jan met two Carey Pet & Home Care sitters at an event. They talked about the services Carey Pet provides and the flexible schedule. Jan couldn't think of a better opportunity to relax and get in some exercise while taking long walks with new 4-legged friends. She currently shares her home with two dogs, a parrot, snake, and a few rats. Kayaking, riding her bike, attending summer concerts downtown and eating healthy are other things she enjoys. She feels pets are our children and should always be loved on and played with.
She is currently going to nursing school and it can become very stressful. Yes, she also has a desire to take care of the two-legged kind, too. Animals have always been a part of Jan's life, from hamsters to horses. They have great personalities and each is an individual. Jan feels that being a pet sitter is somewhat selfish, because she gets so much enjoyment from it. She feels walking with a four-legged-friend, playing fetch or just snuggling is a win-win-win situation for the client, their pet/s as well as herself. Carey Pet & Home Care clients can always rest assured that she will treat their babies and their home as carefully as she does her own.
Michele B. - The Village/Nichols Hills/Belle Isle
Michele grew up in Oklahoma City and has been a lifelong animal lover and caregiver. Since a small child, Michele has always been an animal magnet - she never had to seek out an animal to adopt, the homeless ones always seem to find her. Even those with homes in the neighborhoods where she lived would track her down for some extra special TLC. She was raised with, and cared for, multiple pets including a horse, a bunny, snakes, iguanas, fish, and a total of 16 dogs and cats. 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. And, if there are animals and children around at the same time, she is in heaven.
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 M. - Edmond
Joni has been an animal lover all her life starting with turtles at age five and then a guinea pig when she was seven. 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 the 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.
Amanda M. - Central/NE OKC
Amanda grew up with a love for animals and learned the many responsibilities at a young age. Her family always had a pet whether it was a turtle, bird or rescue dog. As an adult, she started fostering through The Bella Foundation several years ago and her first foster dog was also her first foster fail! She is now a proud owner of one of the most spoiled cocker spaniels in Oklahoma! On the weekends she and her dog, Manny, can be found discovering new dog-friendly places around OKC. Since graduating from the University of Oklahoma, Amanda continues to volunteer by fostering, transporting pets to and from the shelter, photographing available pets ready for adoption, and more.
Her favorite thing about fostering is caring for a pet as if it was her own and observing the pets' different personalities. She is very patient and understanding of pets who are wary towards humans and eventually gains their trust and forms a relationship with them. Amanda also enjoys helping pets transition and adjust to change; meanwhile, seeing their confidence grow. She loves helping the pets transform with a quick grooming and some TLC before sending them on their way to join their furever family. She is used to making the most of her time with a pet whether it will be for a quick visit or longer stay.
In addition, Amanda has been known as the go-to pet and house sitter for her friends and neighbors for years. Amanda and her family used to travel often and would make arrangements depending on whether their pets would be cared for and by whom. Therefore, she understands the importance of trusting someone with your pet while you are away and she ensures they will be treated as one of her own. Thank you for considering Amanda to not only care for your pet, but love on your pet and respect your home as well!

Jess E. - Central OKC
Jess has been an animal lover for as long as she can remember caring for dogs, cats, hamsters, a bunny, fish, snails and even a hermit crab. One of her goals is to become a veterinarian and get to spend every day caring for and being around all sorts of animals! Her pride and joy are her two playful cats named Jasper and Mystery, and an energetic hamster named Peach.
She worked at PetSmart for two years as a pet care member where she and her team took care of the cats, small animals, birds, fish and reptiles. Working there actually led her to meeting and adopting Jasper and Peach! During her time at PetSmart, she learned a variety of knowledge from feeding snakes to giving guinea pigs medication.

Danielle F. - Edmond/N OKC
Danielle has always been an animal lover and has had pets her whole life, including hamsters, dogs, cats, rats, hermit crabs, and fish - she would have definitely had a monkey if her parents would have allowed it. She also rode and groomed horses and volunteered at many pet shelters. Not only does she love working with domesticated animals, but she also has a great deal of experience working with and around wild animals.
Ever since she was a little girl, she dreamed of helping and studying animals in the ocean. This led her to pursue a career in Marine Science. She moved from Oklahoma to California, where she achieved a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in Marine Science, with an emphasis in conservation ecology. Throughout her studies, she worked with various marine animals, and even helped to rescue a few sealions and shore birds while conducting her research on various beaches.
Danielle worked as a wildlife and natural history kayak tour guide, which provided more wildlife experience as she educated the public on various marine mammals and other wildlife in the area as well as conducting public outreach regarding local marine protected area and guidelines for interacting with marine mammals in their environment. She has dedicated her career to protecting and helping all types of animals and the ecosystems they reside in.
It is also worth noting that Danielle's fellow employees from past jobs took notice of and appreciated her pet skills because she became the "go to" pet sitter at these places of employment due to word of mouth because she goes above and beyond for people's fur babies. She has never met an animal she has not won over (even aggressive ones) in time. Danielle is emotionally intelligent when it comes to animals. When she senses something is wrong, she will go out of her way to turn that pet's frown upside down! Danielle looks forward to meeting and working with your fur babies as if they were her own.
