Meet Our Sitters
Our pet sitters are the best in the Katy area! They are loving and friendly, and knowledgeable about all things dog and cat and small animal. We love our staff, and many of them have been with us for quite a while.

Owner - Pet Sitter – Katy
I started Animal Admiration in early 2011 to help provide professional, convenient, worry-free pet care in the Katy, West Houston, Cypress areas. Before going solo, I had joined forces with another pet sitter where I started my career of professional pet sitting back in 2003.
I was born and raised in Katy, Texas where my parents owned a horse stable and training facility. From the time I was little I was always getting new pets. My parents seemed to spoil me with everything I wanted (yes, I’m an only child) from dogs, cats, rabbits, mini horses, show horses, and everything in between. As I got into my teens I also picked up a love of some reptiles. This is due largely to the fact my uncle is a veterinarian here in the Houston, Texas area. I grew up between my parent’s barn and my uncle’s clinic.
I currently have 3 amazing babies … fur-babies that is. Amber, Dixie, and Leighla are my world and what most of my friends are forced to see and hear about. My dogs are all rescue dogs, in fact, Dixie was found at one of my pet sits. I also have a bearded dragon, Gucci, and 2 goldfish that seem to be nameless but like to watch me do dishes. I do have a passion for birds. I have had several lovebirds ad cockatoos over the years. Currently, my home is without an avian tenant but I have many bird feeders in my backyard where I attract, feed, and enjoy watching many wild birds as well as hummingbirds.
Animals have been and will always be a huge part of my life. They provide us so much enjoyment, entertainment, and teach us so much in life. I wish we all could love like our pets – unconditionally and without judgement. My services are here to help provide you a worry-free experience. Whether you’re traveling or stuck at work I’m here to provide companionship, love, and care for your pets. Your pets can stay in their own environment and I will be there to care for them just as I do my own.
For professional and dependable pet sitting services, please contact me today. I truly look forward to meeting you and your family.
Pet Sitter – Memorial – Energy Corridor
Hi, I’m Karin (or think of me as your pets’ “Furry Godmother”) As a lifetime pet owner, I’ll love and care for your fur babies just like my own while you’re away. Currently, I am the mom to 3 rescue cats, one with special needs. I’ve also had the very rewarding job of working as an adoption counselor at a local Houston shelter, My husband and I are empty nesters and have lived on Houston’s west side for 9 years.
Pet Sitter – Champions – Spring – Woodlands
Hi, I’m Donna (to some “Auntie Donna”), a retired school teacher and pet sitter in Spring, The Woodlands, Shenandoah, and Champions areas. I have spent the last 14 years in the public school system teaching elementary-age children. My nature is to be a care giver, and I have a true love and passion for the kids. After getting married a few years ago, I retired to stay at home with my furry children.
My purest passion in life, which started at a very young age, has been for animals. My furry family of six canines include; Bella, Bailey, Berry, Everest, Solomon and Shelly. We have a three-acre property off Gosling Rd. that gives them plenty of room to run and chase balls. Animals have been and will always be a huge part of my life. They give me so much enjoyment, entertainment, and teach me so much about living in the moments of life.
My volunteer work has been with Tomball Abandon Animal Rescue and Houston SPCA. I have recently joined NAPPS (National Association of Professional Pet Sitters) and PSI (Pet Sitters International). My objective is to be the voice of animals. I want to keep them happy, healthy and safe. Animals don’t belong in cages and left alone for hours on end. I want to love them, play with them and keep them active. I also attend many pet-related community events – please stop and say “Hi” if you see me around (If you’re not sure of upcoming events checkout our events page).
I look forward to helping with all your pet sitting & dog walking needs!
Pet Sitter - Memorial - Energy Corridor- West Houston
Hi, I’m Sandy. I have just recently retired from my job (physicians office) after 26 years. I have lived and been around pets all my life. At an early age, I was the one who brought all the stray animals home. I have been volunteering for an animal rescue group (Animal Justice League) since 2016. I find it very rewarding. I foster dogs and help with events. I have 3 rescue dogs of my own (Skye, Spike, & bolt) and 1 rescue cat (Storm). My husband and I have lived in West Houston for over 20 years. We are huge Astros and Rockets fans. Working with animals is my passion and is what makes me happy. I look forward to helping with your furry family!
