Carolyn has had a helping heart since she was young. Growing up, Carolyn and her sister would walk dogs and pet sit for their neighbors. Over the last decade Carolyn has helped many families with their babysitting and house sitting needs. In recent years she has discovered a unique passion for animals, inspired by her sister who has extensive experience running her own pet sitting business. During the same time her mother also started a care-giving business called "Thank Goodness She is Here", but she passed away shortly after its launch. The loss of her mom, and the recent passing of her sister's dog Skyla, has reinforced Carolyn's passion for the beautiful bond between humans and animals. She understands how important it is to provide you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that someone reliable and trustworthy is taking care of your pets while you are away.
Gail grew up in Scottsdale and graduated from ASU with a BA in History. She later moved to California, married husband Steve, raised two now-grown children Robert and Maggie in Davis, CA and presently divides her time between northern California and Scottsdale. Gail and her family have loved many pets throughout the years, mostly rescues including dogs, cats, rodents, and chickens. Presently, she and her husband live with their senior dog Roxy, an abandoned chihuahua/terrier mix mom with three puppies discovered under a house in LA many years ago. They kept Roxy and one of the puppies, Chewy, and found a perfect home for the two other puppies with a neighbor. Chewy developed distemper at four months old even after vaccinations, becoming disabled and unable to walk because of neurological damage. He was able to pull himself around but for the most part he was carried everywhere by Gail, a 15lb weight that made her left arm very strong! Sadly Chewy succumbed to the effects of the disease in early 2018, but he lived a very happy and joyful life for 12 years and is greatly missed by everyone who knew him. Gail also cares for several rescued feral kitties when in Pinecrest, CA where she and her husband own an Air BNB. Gail can't imagine a life that isn't filled with the love of animals.
