Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters - It's a TEAM Effort!
Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters are a "PAW-SOME" TEAM of 20+ professional, bonded, insured, mature, responsible, loving pet sitters, many of which are certified in Pet CPR. We are a TEAM because it is not an option for your pet to go without a visit. You will always be assigned a main pet sitter, as well as a backup pet sitter.  
My name is Birthe and I joined Team Paw-Some in September, 2013. I moved to Houston from Norway in 2000 with my husband and our two sons. In Norway, I worked as a nurse for 13 years, but when we moved here, I was a stay-at-home Mom. In 2001, we adopted Aspen from Cocker Spaniel rescue. I grew up with poodles in Norway and I always wanted a dog of my own. We also had parakeets and cockatiels. After a few years I started working as a volunteer at Bay Area Pet Adoption and loved helping with all dogs and cats. In 2012 we adopted Eddie from Cocker Spaniel rescue after losing Aspen. He has been our baby in our house until January 2014, at which time we adopted our second cocker, Marco. Now they both share my attention and Eddie is adapting to a brother! I love being around all animals, and enjoy playing and spending time with them. I am so fortunate for this opportunity working with Team Paw-Some and look forward to spending more time with all our furry friends.

My name is Arnette and I have been part of Team Paw-Some’s pet sitting crew since June 2008. My townhouse, near the Houston Yacht Club, is home to 4 rescue cats and a few outside strays. Although I stay busy with a full time job, my favorite activity is pet sitting. The cats I visit know I bring toys and plenty of time to play while the older dogs request massages. In my spare time, I volunteer at Memorial High School with special needs kids - including Secret Santa, buying school clothes in September and throwing parties for the class. I create charity auction baskets for Houston Mission Center, Memorial Exchange Club and various other causes. I believe my teaching background and experience with special needs kids makes me a kind and caring pet sitter.

Hello pet parents. My name is Kayla Orsak and I am currently a part-time pet sitter with Team Paw-Some as I work full time as a LVT (Licensed Veterinary Technician) at Parkwood Animal Hospital in Friendswood. I have worked with this wonderful group of pet sitters since April 2013 and absolutely love it. I have always been surrounded by animals since I was a little girl and that is probably why I chose my profession as an LVT. 

I was born and raised here in Texas, but moved to Colorado for two years, which is where I rescued my dog Bella and my cat Judy. I just recently rescued another kitten, who I named Oliver. I think as pet lovers we all tend to take in strays from time to time to foster until we can find a good home for them. But somehow that doesn’t seem to happen that often and we find ourselves with permanent furry pets living in our home! Oh well – the more the merrier!

I purchased Caring Carrie's Pet Sitters from Ms. Marriott in April of 2006. My career began by assisting her with her pet sitting business. In the ensuing years, I have grown to know and love all the animal clients we have. Our clients are not just animals on the other side of the door, they are Fur Kids to us; with each dog, cat, or bird having its own unique personality, making pet sitting profoundly rewarding. 

        In January of 2015, we PROUDLY changed our name to encompass the 
    actual TEAM of pet sitters that Caring Carrie's has morphed into. Our pet 
        sitters are the best of the best and it is only through their dedication to our 
    business, and their true love of animals that has allowed us to grow into a 
        TEXAS sized Team of loving, caring, experienced pet sitters.

 Our animals are so appreciated and loved. We treat them like it is their home and we are lucky to be allowed to come in. Presently we are owned by two dogs. Dandee, who was a found dog warmed our hearts, and after unsuccessfully trying to locate his owner, took over one of our sofas in our home. Our other fur child Dolly, was also looking for a permanent home, and with Dandee by our side, we choose her to occupy the second sofa in our home. Our two Doxies had recently passed, so it seemed like it was meant to be, another gift from Above. They have bonded into the best sister and brother ever. Additionally, we often act as foster parents for several local Pet Rescues, so the actual number of four legged Fur Kids we have the pleasure to come home to each evening, varies. We have volunteered for Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue for the past 12 years, and recently have also had the pleasure to foster for a Doxie rescue group, All Texas Dachshund Rescue or ATDR.

                                   Family wise, the past six years have been such a blessing. I am 
now a proud Grandmother; my precious Granddaughter who arrived 
in 2008 and two twin Grandsons adding to the joy in 2012. 

My vision for Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters is, first, to be the kind of person my dog thinks I am, and second, to follow the Golden Rule; treat all humans and animals with the love and respect as I hope others will treat me and our company.

Thanks for visiting ~ Elizabeth Moeller 
I joined this dedicated and compassionate team of pet sitters in 2011 and I also wear an additional hat as Team Manager/Scheduler helping with the administrative side of Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters.

I am originally from Boston, Massachusetts, but have lived in Texas for over 30 years. I am a die-hard Boston Red Sox fan and would love to share Red Sox baseball stories with anyone 
that will listen.

When not pet sitting, I volunteer many hours within the La Porte School District and at City of La Porte functions. I am also a scrapbook junkie and try to work on my scrapbook projects when time permits. My husband and I have lived in La Porte for over 20 years. Our daughter teaches with Alvin Independent School District working with special needs children and is also a cat and dog lover. Before moving to La Porte, my husband and I lived in Houston where I was employed with an investment management company. 

Proudly, we have two cats, one dog and a cockatiel. I would have more pets, but my husband threatens to live in a tent outside if any more pets come inside. Maybe that is why I enjoy my pet sitting – I can get my pet fix loving other animals from afar.

Business Manager, Bookkeeper
My name is Libby, and I've been with Team Paw-Some since November of 2013.  I actually met Elizabeth at the Voyager at the Space Center in Nassau Bay, as I was bringing my Pomeranians, Lili & Rosi, in from a walk and she was going to visit a client. My girls smelled an animal lover and unabashedly introduced themselves to Elizabeth right on the spot! When I found out she owned a pet sitting company I was thrilled, because my husband and I were in need of a new pet sitting service after moving from the Pasadena area where Ruth of Wuffy Walks took care of our fur-kids.

Soon after meeting, Elizabeth hired me and my small bookkeeping company to take over the books of Team Paw-Some, and I now serve as the Bookkeeper and Business Manager for this amazing, growing business!

Fortunately, when we recently relocated to Corpus Christi I was thrilled to be able to continue doing the books, invoicing the clients, and helping out with management responsibilities from my room with a view of the bay!​
I am excited to be a part of Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters on a part-time basis, as I am currently employed as a Para Professional in the life skills class at Glenn York Elementary School in Alvin helping students achieve their ultimate potential. I am also attending San Jacinto College part-time pursuing a degree in Education working with special needs children.

During the summer, I teach private swim lessons while working with special needs children in water safety.

I am current on my American Red Cross Lifeguarding, First Aid, CPR and AED Certifications and have also earned a Texas Para Professional Certificate, with specialization in Autistic/Special Needs children.

My love for animals began as a child. My parents have always had dogs, cats, birds and even hamsters in our home growing up and I have continued the tradition in my home. Currently, I have one dog and one cat eating me out of all my spare change.

Laurie
I have been a member of Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters since March, 2013. My husband and I have been married for 20 years and we are proud parents to two wonderful children, ages 14 and 10; along with our two fur-pups, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a Chiweenie. Needless to say – I am quite busy. 

I taught school for 15 years in Texas and Pennsylvania and was a Multicultural Specialist and Program Specialist in Cleveland, Ohio for five years. It was in Ohio where I had the opportunity to work closely with classroom teachers to develop curriculum and project based portfolios. Working with dedicated teachers was a wonderful experience and one which I truly enjoyed!

While living in San Antonio, I served as a board member in the local chapter of the Delta Society. Through this organization, our group matched members’ pets with local schools, hospitals and nursing homes and provided “therapy dog” experiences for people of all ages. Bringing people and animals together was both rewarding and extremely enjoyable and an experience I will always treasure.

I have always felt a kinship towards animals and feel blessed that I am part of this caring and loving team of men and women.
Danielle
My name is Laurie, and I am happy to have finally found the job of my dreams...becoming a pet sitter with Team Paw-some, and being able to spend my working hours providing love and care to as many pets as I can! 

I have been a resident of the Clear Lake area since moving here in 1982 from Youngstown, Ohio. I have a Bachelor in Science in Business Administration from Youngstown State University. In 1983, I married my husband, also a former Ohio resident. I worked in apartment management for over ten years, before becoming a stay at home mom to raise our two daughters, both graduates of Clear Lake High School and University of Houston. 

My love for animals goes back to my childhood, and my home has never been without pets; whether it is a turtle, hamster, iguana, garter snake, dog or cat! I shared that love of animals for several years as a volunteer with Finally Home Pet Rescue...fostering cats, bottle feeding fur babies, administering medications, and providing a warm lap to snuggle on. During that time, I also became mom to eight cats! I have been a pet sitter for many of my neighbors over the years and have experience with both dogs and cats. 

As a member of Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters, I am excited to share my love of animals with your precious pets while you are at work, on a business trip, or vacation!  
I am so excited to be a part of Team Paw-Some! My name is Danielle and I just moved here from Pennsylvania to start my new adventures in Texas with my fiancé and his two pet babies, Amos (Mountain Cur) and Coby (Beagle-Basset mix). Both were rescued from our local PetSmart. Amos loves to chase squirrels and run around the dog park. Coby enjoys burrowing himself in pillows and hunting for new scents on our walks.

I graduated from Immaculata University and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. Following graduation, I worked for the WIC Program as a nutritionist counselling women and children; and as a TSS (Therapeutic Support Staff) working with children and pre-teens in helping them develop their verbal and communicative skills.

When I am not pet sitting, I enjoy running with the Bay Area Fit Team and working out at the gym. I often take trips to Houston so I can just walk around and explore. I am excited to go to my first Astros game as baseball is one of my favorite sports. My mom signed me up to play in the third grade and I have been playing ever since.

I am thrilled to be pet sitting with Team Paw-Some - a dedicated team of pet-lovers. I look forward to meeting your paw babies! 
My name is Debbi and I am originally from Illinois, but have lived in Friendswood since 1987.

I was fortunate enough to have secured a position with Team Paw-Some in August, 2015. You know how sometimes you dread going to work in the morning because you are not fond of your job? Well, this does not seem like a job at all! Pet sitting is what I love to do and has been a passion of mine for many years. What else is more enjoyable than giving love to dogs and cats of all sizes and personalities?

I worked in finance for 21 years as part of the Space Shuttle Program until our division was shut down in 2011. After leaving, my mom and I travelled, visiting places you usually read about in magazines. We thoroughly enjoyed our adventures together.

I have volunteered with several rescue groups since 2008 specializing in foster kittens. I also have expanded to fostering small dogs. Currently I have four personal cats (all adopted through rescue groups) and eight foster kittens. These numbers change weekly as I can never say no. I can also be found at PetSmart on Saturdays volunteering during Adoption Events.

So you can see that securing this position with Team Paw-Some is my way of going to work with a smile on my face and loving every minute of it.

Hi, my name is Tamara and I joined Team Paw-Some in August 2015.

I love all animals and the magic it brings to be around them. My own dog Ginger is a rescue chow/shepherd mix. 

For the last several years, I have enjoyed being a stay at home mom to two sons. I have a BA in Communications, and prior to my staying at home with my children, I was in technical sales. I have lived in the League City area for over twenty years. 

A friend referred me to Team Paw-Some for a possible part-time position, knowing that neighbors are always having me look after their fur babies. It is truly a pleasure to be around such dedicated, animal-loving and nurturing people. 

I look forward to providing quality in-home care and spending many days with your pets!

My name is Laura. I was born in Houston, but grew up in Seabrook. You can probably say that I am a rarity – since I still live within 2 miles of the same city where I was raised.


Growing up and attending schools in Seabrook and Clear Lake, our family always had dogs and a cat and the tradition has continued as my husband and I have had a wide variety of dogs since we got married in 1980. Our current pups, Sasha and Sampson have their own unique personalities and it is so interesting to watch them try to wrap us around their little paws!

Previously, I was a travel agent for many years, but decided that my passion is surrounding myself with fur pets. Right after Hurricane Ike, we were displaced for several years, and I would take Sasha (didn't have Sampson yet) to a dog park to romp and play with other dogs. There I met many people and their dogs, often remembering the dog’s names before I would remember the human’s names! I also volunteered with Second Chance Pets for a while, even taking in several dogs as fosters.  

Originally, we were clients of this great group of pet sitters and noticed that they were looking to hire other pet sitters in my area, so I contacted Elizabeth and the rest is history, as they say!

I feel as if I have landed the perfect job - loving and taking care of pets while their parents are away. I consider it a joy and a privilege to work with this wonderful team of pet sitters and I look forward to taking care of your pets as I would my own.
Hello pet lovers. My name is Stephanie Hutchinson and I am also a part-time pet sitter with Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters and cannot tell you how much I enjoy every minute of it. I wish I could devote all of my time to my extended fur babies. However, I am a college student finishing up my degree in Professional Business Administration, which doesn’t leave me much spare time. In addition, I have two very beautiful children who are eleven and five and one puppy dog who is eight, so technically I have three kids. I am originally from Kentucky, but have lived in Texas for four years. I was raised on a farm with many animals, so pet sitting is very natural to me. I have yet to come across an animal that I do not like, no matter the nature of the animal. We all have to remember that all animals have different types of personalities just as people do; you just have to know how to work with them in their own way. 
Stephanie
Hi, my name is Steve and I am very excited to be a part of this great Team of Pet Sitters. I am originally from Hollywood, California (yes, many people live there other than movie stars). After college, my Department of Defense career took me to San Diego and then to Washington DC. I moved to Las Vegas after retirement from the DoD and then to League City. My wife and I decided that we are here to stay – so we will not need to hire a moving van any time soon.

I also spent time at Miramar (San Diego) in the Navy as an aircraft electrician working on fighter aircrafts. Following the Navy, I worked as a civilian for the Department of Defense, mostly with the Naval Air Systems Command. Now that I am retired, I enjoy being with our four children, eight grandchildren, and of course, working with furry animals.

I was involved with a Golden Retriever Rescue in Nevada for many years prior to moving to League City. I loved being involved with fostering, daily exercising and basic training programs for those great dogs so they could develop into wonderful adoptable forever family members. I currently have an amazing rescued Golden named J J Watt. He came with that name and after meeting him, you would have to agree it fits him perfectly. 

I look forward to meeting your furry friends. It is truly a passion of mine to make sure that your pets are happy and comfortable when you cannot be there with them. Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters is giving me the opportunity to do something I love.
​Megan
Hello to all you animal moms and dads.

My name is Jessica and I am very happy to be back in the Clear Lake area working part-time with Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters. I also work in the business world part-time as a product marketer. 

I am a graduate of the University of Houston with a bachelor’s degree in finance; and a graduate of Clear Lake High School.

My love for pets goes way back. Growing up, I was always surrounded by many animals, including a couple of parakeets and fish. I spent many hours during my school years volunteering and fostering cats for an animal rescue group. During this time, I learned to administer medications, bottle feed kittens and how to take care of them.

It was not unusual to have over ten cats in our care at one time. My love for them is what inspired me to work with Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters and share that love with your precious pets! I look forward to meeting you soon.

Hi my name is Megan; I am a native Houstonian who joined Team Paw-Some and this wonderful group of pet sitters in May of 2016.

When I am not pet sitting part time, I am working full time at Houston Neurological Institute where I administer all sleep studies to successfully help patients combat their sleep disorders.

I have always had animals growing up and cared for friends’ pets, including ducks, roosters, chickens and other farm animals. I love all animals large and small and feel a very strong compassionate connection to all of them.

I enjoy travelling and reading and often find a kitten lying on my lap when I have a book in my hands.

I look forward to working with you and your pets as a pet sitter 
with Team Paw-Some.
Hello! My name is Isabel and I am so excited to join such a great, caring team of pet sitters.

I recently moved here from South Florida, where I worked in the administrative world. Since moving here, I decided to put my office wardrobe aside and devote my time to my true passion – animals! Who doesn't dream of spending all day meeting new furry friends?! I contacted Team Paw-Some as I needed pet sitters to take care of my fur family while travelling. When I found out they were interested in adding pet sitters to their Team, I immediately made that phone call. And as they say – history was made. 

When I am not pet sitting, I am busy with a local Schnauzer rescue group, either helping the little guys find homes, or fostering. I love all animals, but schnauzers have a special place in my heart (maybe I have a thing for beards)? 

My husband and I have been married for seven years and have two mini-schnauzers of our own - Lily and Scooter. We love the outdoors, whether we're walking, biking, kayaking or just exploring! And of course, being from Miami, the beach!! 

I am so honored to be able to expand my fur family and provide the love and care your fur babies deserve while you're away. I look forward to working with you and I am very excited to be a part of Team Paw-Some.

​Charleen
My name is Charleen and I am a proud member of Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters. I am a native Texan where I grew up and attended school in the Houston area. I obtained both my Bachelor and Master Degrees from the University Of Houston and recently retired after a 35 year career in the petrochemical industry.

I have always been an animal lover. Animals have always played an important part in my life and they continue to bring love and companionship to my husband and me. We are currently the proud parents of two "Texas Lacy Game Dogs" aka "Texas Blue Lacys." Due to their intelligence and high energy levels, they keep us busy finding them challenging activities for their excessive amount of energy.

Now that I have retired from the corporate world, I have decided to do something that brings me much joy and satisfaction--caring for animals that show unconditional love and affection for those who love them. Nothing better than a few wet kisses!

All of Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters share the same goal as I do. We all truly have the desire to see that your pet children are provided with the best care while you are away.

I look forward to meeting you and your pet family and promise to show them the same love and attention that I give to my own fur children.
My name is Brandi and I am so excited to be a member of Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters!
   
My love for animals has persisted since I was very young, and as such, has found a way into many facets of my life. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science from Rutgers University and have been working in veterinary hospitals for more than a decade. I love the fact that I am working with dogs, cats, goats, sheep, horses, reptiles and cows. I am also interested in helping individuals and hope to obtain a nursing degree soon. My passion for animals will continue as I pursue another goal in my life.

I live with my significant other, my dog Davie, and my cat Rue, and I currently work at a veterinary hospital in Webster. When I am not working or going to class, I enjoy going to the dog park with Davie, exploring the museums in downtown Houston, embroidery, and wasting time on Instagram looking at knitting and special-needs goats. 

I truly cannot wait to meet your furry loved one!

​Brandi

My name is Katie and I was born and raised in the Galveston/Houston area. Growing up, I helped take care of many of my family’s animals including many of my own. It was a great experience as my family owned a petting zoo and ranch. I was even on a commercial riding a camel for my father’s ranch.  
 
During high school, I raised animals for our school’s FFA educational program and developed specific skills with the animals I worked with.  
 
After high school, I joined the Navy and I was an Operational Specialist and then medical for eight years. I was stationed in Japan, California and a short time in Texas and Chicago. So many travels, deployments and experiences have made me who I am today. 
 
While raising my brother, he would always want to rescue deaf animals and bring them home, which I found to be very interesting. That interest continued after the military and I decided to attend Gallaudet University to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Family and Child studies with a focus on child development. I taught high school ASL (American Sign Language) for four years and have recently decided to attend nursing school; while working part-time with Team Paw-Some Pet Sitters. My little angel pug named Milo keeps me company while studying. He loves watching shows with animals which makes me laugh with his reactions. I also love cats and need my cat fix. One day I hope to have a Russian blue. 
 
I also have experience administering medication to animals, handling all breeds and ages. I have been with Team Paw-Some since 2013 and I look forward to meeting you and your four-legged fur kids.
