Hello all! My name is Samantha (but you can call me Sami). I am an avid outdoor enthusiast and animal lover. I have been around animals my whole life and am honored to share my home with a beautiful black cat (named Baby), axolotl (named Ghost) and bearded dragon (named Agate). I frequently volunteer with horses and have dog sat/walked for four years. I love hiking and archery and adore all creatures big and small. I have tons of experience with reactive and anxious animals and am confident in my ability to communicate effectively with people and animals. I can’t wait to meet your pets and look forward to offering top notch care and love for your fuzzy (and not so fuzzy) friends!


Hi everyone! My name is Mikayla and I’m so excited to be a part of this incredible team! I’ve lived with animals my entire life and am working towards becoming a vet tech or vet assistant. I only had dogs growing up, but I’ve been around cats, horses, chickens, and rabbits as well. In high school I was the co-president of a club called People for the Animal Welfare Society or PAWS. We made toys and treats every week to give to our local Humane Society. I worked as a dog handler at a dog park where I had to handle as many as 20 dogs at a time. My previous job was at a dog boarding / daycare facility where I learned how to administer various medications, as well as deal with more reactive and difficult dogs. I have two adorable 3 month old kittens named Raymond and Reina. I look forward to meeting and caring for your pets!
