The difference:

I am a professionally trained Veterinary Technician.


My love of animals inspired me to start Pet Pal in 2004. My goal was to offer an alternative to kennels, so that my clients could feel good about how their pets were treated while they were at work or on vacation. Growing up with many pets, animal care was always my dream. That dream became a reality after I earned my college degree in Veterinary Technology and built a strong foundation of experience with over 10 years working at veterinary hospitals. Running Pet Pal full time allows me to give a different kind of care – one-on-one attention to my clients’ furry friends.


My family jokes, “Karin speaks dog.”  Animals have so much to share with us, and I know I have the best job in the world.  This is more than a business to me;  it is about helping you be the best pet parent you can be in todays' busy world. 

Let me bring my skills, experience, medical background and love of animals to your home, where I will love and care for your pets like you do. 

Our mission:

Here at Petpal Pet Sitting it is our mission for your pet to be as comfortable as possible  while you are away from the house and unable to take care of them.  Be it a short or long absence from your pets, Petpal Pet Sitting allows your four legged furry friends to stay at home in a stress-free environment and stay away from overcrowded kennels.  We aim to love and exercise your pets as if they were our own, treat them like they are a part of our family, and give them the extra attention that only well-qualified petsitter could.

There's No Place Like Home

Give them the fun-loving, expert care they deserve.


Whether working long hours, experiencing unexpected delays or away on vacation, Pet Pal clients have peace of mind knowing their pets are in good hands with an experienced pet care professional. At Pet Pal, every pet visit is customized to meet you and your pets’ needs.

Experts agree pets do best in their home environment. Your best friend can relax in the comforts of home and enjoy a 30-minute visit filled with tummy rubs, back scratches, playtime and a healthy walk. If they need special care like taking medicine, I make time for

that, too.   


My clients benefit from superior service because I treat my clients like family taking the extra time and effort to meet their needs and emergencies.  My clients are given my personal cell number with an invitation to call me with questions or requests.  

Rain, snow or shine, 7 days a week including holidays, you can count on Pet Pal to be your partner in your pets’ care.
