Meet Our Sitters


We Love Our Pet Sitters

At Athens Pet Sitter, we get serious about our pet sitters. Handpicked and meticulously screened, including an official background check, our pet sitters know we think the world of them by the time we accept them into the APS pack — and we think you will too! Enjoy a quick introduction below to our fabulous team.

HI, I’m Jamie. I have been working with animals for over 10 years and am currently employed at UGA’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

I worked in a general practice veterinary clinic for 5 years and during this time I decided to go back to school, where I earned an associate degree in Veterinary Technology and have now been a registered technician (RVT) for 6 years.

Caring for animals truly is my passion.

Hi, I’m Matet. I’m currently a student at the University of North Georgia studying biology. I’ve had many different animals over the years from frogs to dogs and I’ve loved every single one of them. Currently, I have three dogs, two cats, and a fire-bellied toad.

I give all the animals I look after the same love and affection that they would get from their families making sure they are always happy and comfortable while you are out of town.

It’s an honor and a pleasure that you trust me with your furry, feathered, and scaled little friends and I’m so excited to work with them and you in the future!
