I wanted to have a career where I could be with my animals while caring for other animals because that's what makes me happy! I truly love caring for and helping animals. It is my passion. I hope to have the opportunity to meet you and your pets."

Sandwich Loved His Vacation! My husband and I hired Kiara to watch our dog (who is basically our son) for 6 days while we were on vacation. From the moment we meet her we were at ease and very comfortable and Sandwich enjoyed exploring the new environment. We received a text update letting us know how he was doing and I'm confident that had we asked for it, we would have had daily updates. Sandwich got along great with the other dogs that were there and definitely came home having been well taken care of while we were gone. I would definitely recommend Kiara to anyone else looking for dog care and would definitely use her again!

Kiara is a true pet lover - and professional. When our geriatric American Eskimo, Cosmo, needed care, we trusted her to always meet his needs. And she also gives amazing geriatric pet massages. And, for what it's worth, she always showed up on time and we were very comfortable having her in our home. After having other "pet sitters" in our home, she has shined!

Paws Massage & Pet Sitting:

I have been pet sitting for over 18 years and love caring for animals!
I am Minnesota's first Certified Animal Massage Practitioner, as well as a Certified Animal Control Officer, and an insured Pet Sitter .  I graduated from Stratford Career Institute in 2004, receiving my certificate as a Veterinarian Assistant. I have taken Animal first aid/CPR through the American Red Cross.  I have worked in Animal Hospitals and have 7+ years experience working at an animal shelter.  I do a lot of animal activist work around the Minneapolis area because I believe that all animals have the right to live free and be happy.  I am a volunteer with the ASPCA and HSUS and get invited to help out with natural disasters or specialty cases a few times a year.

We use Paws Massage and Petsitting any time we need to go out of town. We feel safe with this company because our cats have some medical conditions and Kiara is knowledgeable and very professional. She is also friendly, reliable and very flexible. We know when we leave town our cats are in great hands with Paws Massage and Petsitting!
