It all started when Regina, a local Vet Tech of 15+ years, began pet-sitting for clients upon special request. Over the years, Regina fielded many client requests to provide supportive care to their pets in their own homes. And so the idea was born and here we are.

" I have known Regina for 17 years when she worked for my pet's long term veterinarian. When I needed a sitter for my dogs, I was relieved when she agreed to care for them. My female is diabetic requiring glucose checks and insulin twice daily. While I was away, the glucose levels were controlled and both pets were well cared for. They have never been kenneled, so having a trusted, competent caregiver stay at my home was a huge relief while I traveled!"

" When I needed to be away from home, Regina pet sat for me and Fang. I was so glad that he was in her home, not a kennel! I was able to be away worry-free! He was healthy and happy when I returned. Thanks Regina!'

"I have known Regina for many years as a Vet technician with Gulf Coast Veterinarian Clinic.
She has always been empathetic and gentle with our elderly dog, Paws. She gave excellent
care and provided us with much support as we tried to make the best possible decisions for
our dear puppy.
We were in need of care for Paws over the Christmas holidays and Regina jumped to our aid
and said she would gladly take care of her for the duration of our absence. It was such a relief
to know our dog was in the best hands possible and that we had a good working relationship.
While we were in the frigid north, Regina sent us pictures of Paws hanging out in her backyard
with her own dogs. It was a great relief to know she was doing well. We also exchanged some
phone calls over the same period of time.
Our Paws had some idiosyncrasies unique to her. She was raised as a early riser and was
crate trained. Over the last year of her life, we allowed her to sleep wherever she felt
comfortable. Regina and her wife adapted to these two issues with perseverance, kindness
and sleep deprivation!
We returned home to our southern comforts and welcomed a happy dog after a two week
We highly recommend Regina as a professional with medical experience and her ability to work
with challenges with grace and humor."
-Nancy, Jim and our beloved Paws.
"My husband and I own a Wheaton Terrier. During the five months that our dog Teddy is in Florida, she has been a patient of Dr. Denise Kalliainen. In that entire timeframe, Regina has been the veterinary technician to Dr. Kalliainen. My husband and I were impressed with Regina's ability to care for Teddy during those various treatments, examinations and in some cases, actual surgery. As with most canines, Teddy is never excited about going to the vet but she is always comforted by Regina's fine care.
In addition , when my husband and I were out of the country for three weeks earlier this year, we left Teddy under Regina's care at her home. We knew that there could be no better place for Teddy and we were absolutely correct. Regina did an outstanding job taking care of Teddy and integrating her with her other pets.
We would highly recommend Regina without any hesitation for any position involving the care and treatment of small animals."
" My 17 yr old miniature pinscher, Brutus, had to have neck surgery last year at Christmas time and I was scheduled to be out of town right after picking him up from the neurologist. I am a veterinarian myself and don't trust my pets with just anyone. Regina offered to care for him so I could make my trip. Regina was great with my old man and took great care of him! She made sure he was kept quiet and got all of his medications. She also sent me regular updates so that I knew how he was doing through out my trip. When I got home I met up with her to pick him up and it was obvious what a wonderful job she had done. She is so caring and took care of him just like he was hers! I was so thankful to have her to take care of him! Even though I hated leaving him right after having surgery I knew he was in great hands and felt at ease with the care he would receive."
