I have been an animal lover my entire life and figured what better way to show my appreciation for my love of animals than by caring for the best furry friends of others while they are away.

When I was a child, I had a German Shepherd who was my best friend for 13 years. Growing up, I also had cats, turtles, fish, a cockatiel, a Shih Tzu, and two Yorkies. I loved knowing I always had someone to keep me company!

Presently, I live in Berks County with my husband and daughter. We share our home with Chloe (Brussels Griffon/Pug Mix), Lucas (Pit Bull), Otis (Boston Terrier), and Teddy (Russian Tortoise).

In addition to my own pets, I am also a foster parent/volunteer for many rescues in the area. I love being able to help save the lives of those in need. Although my foster dogs moved on to their forever homes, they will always be a part of my heart and family!

When I was a child I had a Pound Puppy that I would sleep with every night and wish that I had a real dog. I would occasionally pester my parents about getting one but it took many years of doing that until it eventually worked! I was so happy the day that we finally brought our Shetland Sheepdog, Max, home! He was my best friend for 15 years of my life. He was smart, funny, gentle, and well behaved; just an overall amazing dog. I have also had many awesome cats over the years and will continue to have animals for the rest of my life.

I grew up in Sinking Spring and have lived in Berks County my entire life. In my free time I enjoy playing sports and spending time with friends and family (many of which have animals of their own). I have been passionate about animals all my life and I love connecting with them on an emotional level. My favorite thing about animals (besides being furry and adorable) is that they don’t judge you, they just genuinely love you and that is an amazing thing to experience.

Allison

I grew up in a family of animal lovers and now have three boys of my own;  Hank the Tank (Dachshund mix), Pip (Papillon/Chihuahua mix) and Kirby (a naughty cat).  Both Pip and Kirby are rescues.  Pip is special needs.  He is my miracle.  I also have a passion for working with horses.  I spent over two years at a horse rescue and now ride weekly.

I grew up in Berks County, graduated from Wilson High School and earned a BA in Communications from Penn Start University.  I am a huge college football fan, love the Phils and I’m obsessed with ice hockey.  Go Pens!  I also enjoy hiking, anything outside in nature pretty much.

Most importantly, I promise to love your pet(s) like you do!

Hi, I’m Brandon! Growing up there were always pets in the house. Mostly cats and dogs of all sizes, but occasionally a turtle, bird, rabbit, squirrel, you name it. I think my mom might be Snow White. Something in the sound of her voice would just attract animals. Being around animals all the time has truly been a blessing. I do my best to quickly learn your pet’s personality so that we can have a great time together.

I don’t remember a time when my family had less than ten cats and at least three dogs. The responsibility to take care of and love animals as a member of the family has been so ingrained within us that it’s second nature. If I were to try and list the name of every pet I ever had we’d be here all day. I can say, however, that for every pet there hangs a stocking at Christmas time with their name on it. The stockings cover the walls.

We still have a big family. I currently have 3 dogs. A Brussels Griffon, a Shih Tzu, and a Great Pyrenees named Winston, Ernie, and Yeti. My cats’ names are, and I’m going to see if I can do this in one breath, Nibbles, Kotik, Ripley, Tessa (Mama Kitty), Tidbit, Pazzo, Pelo, Matone, Dexter, Dee Dee, and Goose.

I graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with a focus on Acting. I perform in amateur and professional productions across the eastern United States. I have spent decades honing my craft of playing pretend. So if you see me dancing around, speaking in silly voices, or reenacting favorite scenes with your pet, that’s why. I was given professional advice to never work on stage with animals because they are so naturally interesting they will up-stage you no matter how skilled you have become. I can’t disagree, every time I see a dog, that’s where MY attention goes!

I look forward to taking care of your pet! Thank you so much!

For the past 21 years, I’ve taught 8th-grade algebra. Besides getting along with 14-year-olds, I’d like to say that getting along with animals is what I do best! I cannot remember a time when I didn’t have a pet. Growing up in the city of Reading, there was always an animal or two (or three) in my life. As a working adult, I’ll never forget the first time I adopted my own cat, Vinnie, from the Humane Society of Berks County. Ultimately, after meeting my husband through work, and moving to West Reading, we rescued Buster the Boston Terrier and June the chunky diabetic cat. We raised and cared for all three pets while instilling a love of animals in our daughter, Naomi, just shy of 11 years old.

Currently, we are a pet-free home, but we’ve grown close to many pet children of neighbors, friends, and family and are known to pet sit frequently. I have also volunteered at the Humane Society of Berks County cleaning both dog and cat kennels and took part in the Book Buddies program at the Animal Rescue League with my daughter where we spent time reading books to cats and kittens.

I am thrilled to be a member of the Berks Pet Care team to get to know and care for your pets as if they were my own!

Growing up I was always involved with animals. There was never a time I didn’t have a cat or dog around to love, apart from little critters like guineas, lizards, and the occasional wildlife rescue. They’ve always been a huge and important part of my life! When I was a kid, I used to sit and watch animal planet in awe every night with my grandma and be so excited about all the different creatures in the world. I also lived and worked on a ranch in Utah for a year, riding horses (and braiding their hair), raising calves, taking care of a domesticated and feral cat colony, and nursing a litter of abandoned puppies! I always say that we don’t deserve animals, which is why I’ve always treated them with the love and respect they deserve. You can’t find anything better in this world than their unconditional love!

I grew up in Berks County and live in Sinking Spring with my boyfriend, 3 huskies (Zero, Maka, and Quinn) and my little cat familiar (Luna). I have a big love of nature and like to spend my time hiking, tending to my indoor/outdoor plants, reading, sculpting and painting, costume making, and playing video games! If I’m not doing either of those things, I’m probably cooking some yummy food and snuggling with everyone on the couch watching Lord of The Rings (or something like that).

I’m very happy to be part of the team and excited to see your babies and give them the love and care they deserve! 🙂

Hi, I’m Kareena! I am a wife and mother to two wild boys ages 5 and 2. I am also a pet mama with 3 dogs: Annie (mini dachshund), Sonnie (laboratory retriever), Everest (Bernedoodle) 3 cats: Chives, Dill & Pepper, and a bearded dragon named Ella. I have always grown up loving animals and there was never a time we didn’t have pets in our household.

I love pets of all sizes and species. I have many years of experience with pet care and pet sitting in the Berks County area. I am excited to be able to help by caring for your pets while you are away. Your babies will be cared for and loved just as if they were my own!

Hi I’m Rebecca! First off, thank you for the opportunity to get to know your pet(s).I am so excited! I live in West Cocalico township with my husband and our 3 fur kids but have been owned by one or more animals as far back as I can remember. My current fur family started 9 years ago with 2 rescued cats from Berks Humane Society. Our Lilly (we call her Bill), who stole my husband’s heart, and Leo, who won me over with his cross-eyed glance. They made us a family, but 4 years ago, that family grew with a hungry stray that showed up at our door and sometimes answered to Stone, lol. During the week, I work as a Chiropractic Assistant here in Berks County but I am overjoyed to use my free time snuggling, playing with, and caring for your fur babies while they wait for your happy return.
