Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting our site.

My name is Kara Hill and I was born and raised here in Bakersfield, CA. I moved away in 2003 to attend UC Santa Barbara and I ended up staying in the beautiful beach community for about 14 years. During my stay, I was employed at a wholesale fashion jewelry company, where I gained extensive knowledge of customer service. I was also employed at a pet sitting company, where I had so much fun getting to know clients and their pets, and gained much knowledge about the pet and house sitting industry. From this time in Santa Barbara, I always had a dream of starting my own pet sitting company one day, and providing impeccable customer service (something I always strive for).

I moved to Rancho Cucamonga in January 2017, and that August, my boyfriend and I adopted Ash, our Maltese/Terrier Mix. We then relocated to Bakersfield in March 2018, and adopted our second Terrier mix, Kanga, that October. Adopting both of them was such an incredible gift, and I knew I wanted to provide Bakersfield with an in-home service for pets, because I realized how important that was for my own family.


I look forward to meeting you and your furry friends,
