Hi! I'm Kristen. Animals have always held a very special place in my heart. I have been pet-sitting for many years and am 100% committed to providing excellent pet care to all fur babies, as well as making each and every owner feel comfortable and have peace of mind while they are away.
At the age of thirteen, I started my own pet care business in Morristown, NJ, the community that I grew up in.
Over the years, I created many long lasting relationships with clients who entrusted me with caring for their beloved pets, as well as their homes. Each and every pet deserves to be cherished and cared for in their own unique way. We will always ensure that all animal parents and families know their babies are in safe and reliable hands with our pet services.
I have lived on the East End for almost fifteen years now. For many of those years, I was back and forth between Montauk and St. John, in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Two magical places I hold dear to my heart. I've been back from the islands for six years now and was living in Montauk, up until just about two years ago. I purchased my very first home in Hampton Bays, NY. I live here with my fiancé, Matt, and our little fur family- our girl Bluey, an Egyptian Mau rescue from the streets of Cairo, Egypt; and Vinnie, our precious little weenie whom we adopted from a wonderful woman in Springs.
They are best friends.
Here at Canal Pet Care,
it is important that we provide quality pet services and home care that we would want for our own pets and selves. Your pet's happiness and care is our priority and we want to ensure that you always feel comfortable to voice any concerns
and we encourage you to ask questions.
We strive to make our pet parents feel comfortable and at ease knowing that your wishes will always be honored.
As an experienced and educated pet-sitter,
I understand and value the importance of consistency in a pet's routine and how each of their needs differ.
For us, pet-sitting isn't a hobby. It is a passion that is pursued with the upmost professionalism and care.
We know that pet care is about more than just showing up, walking and feeding your pet.
It goes much further.
Our pet services begin with forming a genuine connection with your fur baby. We value becoming in tune with their needs and understanding their behaviors.
Caring for your pet requires great attention to detail, knowledge, patience and love.
And as any pet parent knows, with animals, things don't always go according to plan.
Remaining calm, should any type of situation arise, is crucial and will help prevent your pet from feeling and reacting to any anxiety.
We will always follow your instructions regarding emergencies and care of your animal.
