SYLVIA AND MICHAEL
Sylvia is incredibly grateful to be part owner of Sit Stay Play! What could be better than hanging out with dogs and cats all day? 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! Along with her pet CPR certification, Sylvia has a bachelor’s degree in music. Her husband, Michael, is also an avid animal lover. He has raised and loved many pets throughout his life, but his favorites have definitely been his cats!
Sylvia and Michael have the joy of raising their two dogs; a malti-poo named Cooper and a miniature poodle named Tucker, and their cat, Beanie. They look forward to sharing their love of animals with your pets and carrying on the standard of care and compassion that Katy and Bo have established with Sit Stay Play!
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 multiple 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.
Cathy is a Tulsa native and has had pets as far back as she could remember. Many of them include cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters and fish. Cathy has volunteered at the Tulsa SPCA and been a foster mom to sick fur kids or animals looking for their forever home. She currently has two cats, Beamer, a black domestic short haired cat who is 14 and Sadie, a white, short haired Polydactyl who is 15. She loves to spoil them with toys and plays hide and seek with them. Cathy has a degree in Social Work, but currently works full time at the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office and works part time as an EMT and volunteer firefighter. Cathy loves to travel, swim, read, work out and spend time with her family who live in midtown. She looks forward to caring for your pet and loving them as her own!
Faith is a Tulsa Native with a love for animals, especially doggies! Her first pets included a lively Jack Russell Terrier named Abby and three goldfish. In 2015, Faith fostered puppies with Animal Rescue Foundation until they found their fur-ever homes. Since then, she’s helped care for a bunch of different furry friends, from Chihuahuas to Huskies! Now, Faith is a rescue-dog mom to Daisy Doodle, a super sweet and ornery Maltichon that loves to be nearby her humans. A few years ago, Faith graduated from Rogers State University with a bachelor’s in English. In her free time, she enjoys writing creatively, reading, collecting vinyl, hiking, and spending time with her close friends and family. Faith is very excited to be a part of the Sit, Stay, Play pack, and she can’t wait to dote on your fur-baby!
Yvette has been an animal lover ever since she can remember. Her favorite memory is being a little girl at a park and walking up and touching a German shepherd on the ear. He was taller than her, but she knew he had a kind and gentle soul. Ever since that encounter, she has adored her own pets as well as her friends’. Even as a child she loved visiting friends who had pets. Snoopy, the poodle lived behind her, and Pooh Bear, the chihuahua mix lived around the corner. While Yvette walked her dog, Buffy, her friend walked Pooh Bear and they had many adventures together. Once the family moved to the country, she enjoyed the horses behind her and the cat next door, Toulouse.
She always had a dog growing up, but there is something about having your own that warms your heart. During College, there was Lacey, the shih tzu that even went to classes with her as a pup. Then there was Pepper, and her most recent, Parker.
Although all these pups have passed over the rainbow bridge, Yvette still finds connections with animals the most beautiful thing. There is not a furry friend living in her home right now, but she still has plenty of doggie friends. Hodi, lives behind her and comes to the fence for treats, Ms. Jones, Rebel, Ella and Lucy like walking by her house because she leaves treats at the end of the driveway. Ms. Honey, Summer, Archie, Zeus, Maverick and Goose love it when Yvette comes to visit because they know she keeps treats in her pocket.
So as the story goes, she still loves to visit friends who have pets and has found a way to extend that beyond her neighborhood and make new friends who she can love, and spoil.
Ashley is native to the Tulsa area, and has accumulated a decade’s worth of pet care experience. She first started working in pet care in 2012 while she was attending college at ORU for Health & Exercise Science. Since graduating ORU, she has become a Tulsa fitness instructor. While she loves her career as a fitness professional, she never stopped working in pet care. Pet sitting/dog walking has always been a way to add balance, joy, and fulfillment to her work life. While Ashley has always loved animals, her passion began after rescuing her first shelter dog as an adult. (Her name is Harlow). Harlow helped ignite that passion Ashley now has for dog rescue and pet care. Ashley and her husband now own 3 dogs (“fur children”) that they are absolutely obsessed with. A “super mutt”, a Coonhound, and a Labrador. Ashley has so much love for her dogs, and aims to treat the dogs she walks with the same care she’d wish for her own. Ashley is eager to love on local Tulsa pets, and help put local Tulsa pet OWNERS at ease!
Jennifer has lived all over the U.S. but has been a Tulsa resident for almost a decade now! She has been a dog-mom her whole life and has been babysitting and pet sitting since she was a young teenager. Although she’s definitely a dog person, she also enjoys taking care of your fish, reptiles, birds, horses, and small pets like gerbils and hamsters and cats too! Jennifer’s 9-5 job is with Tulsa City County Libraries so when she’s not walking your dogs or training her own dogs, she probably has her nose in a book. Jennifer also enjoys cooking and eating, coffee and breakfast tacos, indulgent period dramas, and really long runs with friends (she’s currently collecting a marathon medal from each state). Her own German Shepherds- Natasha and Baroness- also enjoy eating, running, playing with their puzzles, and long Sunday naps.
Susie grew up in the countryside of Claremore, OK helping her family care for all kinds of animals like horses, cows, chickens, cats, and dogs. She was no stranger to caring for lizards, frogs, and snakes either! Susie now resides in her happy midtown home with her husband, Luis. Together they own a full standard poodle named Teddy Bear.

Angela has done pet sitting for all kinds of animals; dogs, cats, rodents, birds, fish, goats, chickens, and even horses! Her heart is ever caring for all pets.
Over the summer of 2022, Angela fostered a sweet, loveable Australian Shepherd dog. She was successfully able to find his forever home where he now runs around in a big yard and is the happiest pup in the world.
Angela’s goal is to foster more dogs in the future so she can be a part of finding their perfect families.
When not befriending every kind of animal, Angela enjoys painting, drawing, writing, and animating.
Angela can’t wait to meet your furry friend!
