Sylvia loves animals more than most people! Throughout her life, she has cared for dogs, cats, fish, mice, guinea pigs and even snakes. To her, her fur babies are her kids so she definitely understands how very important her job is as a pet sitter! Sylvia has the joy of raising two dogs; a malti-poo named Cooper and a miniature poodle named Tucker, and two cats named Kitty and Sabine.
Along with her pet CPR certification, Sylvia has a bachelor’s degree in music and you can probably catch her around town singing for her supper. Other hobbies include; crocheting, reading, cooking and throwing dinner parties for friends and of course, and most importantly, spending time with her fur babies…ok and the husband, too! She looks forward to meeting and caring for your fur babies and getting all the puppy kisses!
Laura is a Tulsa native and grew up around dogs, cats, frogs, and fish. As far back as she can remember her family and extended family have always owned multiples dogs, which were always considered to be part of the family. She loves to spoil her dogs with long walks, car rides, treats, or just some good old-fashioned attention. Laura’s first pet was a Goldfish named Freddie, now she is the proud owner of Max, an Australian Shepherd mix, who she rescued a few years ago. When Laura is not spending time with Max, she is training for Spartan Races, playing soccer, reading, cooking/baking, or hanging out with family and friends.
Liz is a Tulsa native and is in her senior year at Northeastern State. She grew up around ducks, dogs, cats, fish, and hamsters. As a teenager, she volunteered at Safari’s Sanctuary and while there she learned to care for both exotic and barnyard animals. It was there that she learned that she really enjoyed getting to know each animal’s unique personality and quirks! She recently adopted a dog of her own and together they love to work on obedience training, socialize at the dog park, hike, camp, longboard, swim, and sit patio side at coffee shops with a new novel.
Jes adores animals and nature! She has cared for pets and barnyard animals all over the world from Paris to Vancouver Island to Austin to our lovely Tulsa. Throughout her life, she has loved and cared for cats, dogs, birds, chickens, turtles, hamsters, horses, goats, and even a pet caterpillar named Kitty. She lives in a tiny home with her black kitty, Zero, and they are frequently caught playing piano and gardening together. Jes is a songwriter/singer/musician so you may also find her singing to your babies at times. In addition to her deep love of pets, traveling, gardening, and music, she is a graduate of Trinity School of Natural Health and is fascinated by the world of holistic nutrition for humans, as well as animals. If you have any questions about health concerns your pet may have, be sure to ask, and she may just have a natural cure idea up her sleeve.
Haley is a Tulsa native but loves to travel. She would be in a new place every day if she could take her doggo with her! She and her husband are soon going to renovate a school bus into an RV to do just that. She is a Rogers State University graduate with a degree in studio art and she spent a month studying the greats and painting in Italy in 2015. She’s been to 18 of the 50 states and 15 different countries and she’s not stopping anytime soon! She grew up in a house with five dogs and a cat and has never met an animal that she didn’t love! She now loves to spend time chasing around her pit/hound mix, Dash, whom she and her husband adopted last year right before their wedding. If she and her husband ever own land, they plan to fill it with piglets, goats, cows, and lots of other animal friends. When she isn’t cuddling with her giant fur baby, you will find Haley at the gym, hiking, painting, or reading.
