Hi! I'm Kari
I have been pet, farm animal, and house sitting for families for over 20 years. I have taken care of homes and family members (dogs, cats, cows, chickens, sheep, donkeys, hamsters, and fish) for my friends, family, and co-workers. Prior to owning my own home, I have lived with many roommates and pets.
I owned my own home for 17 years and took care of almost everything by myself. I had a meticulous yard. I was outside most of my free time and got to know many of my neighbors as they were out for walks. I received many compliments on my yard, gardens, and the care of my home. I have experience taken care of all of my own landscaping, mowing, gardening (vegetables and flowers). I grew up on a farm and care for my sister and brother-in-law's farm animals when they are away (cows, chickens, sheep, donkeys). I have also cared for sheep and donkeys at my brother's house. My family has always had at least one dog and sometimes 5 at one time.
I love animals, children of all ages, and gardening. I am a special education teacher. Being a special education teacher is my calling. It is a very challenging and rewarding career. I rescued my dog, Max, a beagle, at 5 months and he was my baby for 17 years. I enjoy time with family (parents, brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews)! 3 years ago I moved from St. Paul, MN back to my hometown to spend more time with my family. I come from a family of farmers and animal lovers! I am looking forward to traveling, meeting new people, adventure, and trying new things. I have been pet sitting for families for over 20 years. I am personable, kind, and loving.

Kari was such an excellent petsitter! She followed through with all the routines and kept my 3 fur babies very happy! She communicated consistently while I was gone and left my home well cared for. I would gladly welcome Kari back anytime!
