Everyone is background checked, bonded/insured, and CPR/First Aid certified.

Where it all began

Perna’s Pet Care was started in 2018 in Austin, TX after other dog walking and pet sitting companies constantly left me wanting more. With Perna’s Pet Care I’ve created a more personalized experience- we work together directly, no hidden fees and no surprises. We’re here for you!

Pets:

Roo, American Pit Bull terrier

Interesting Fact:

I spent 3 months bicycling around Colombia

Biography:

I’ve been in the pet care industry since 2013 starting with doggy day care centers and volunteering in animal shelters. Now, as a professional pet sitter I:

  •  am a member of Pet Sitters International 
  •  am a founding member of the Texas Pet Sitters Association (where my business began)
  • was trained by the largest no-kill animal shelter (Austin Pets Alive!) to care for and feed neo-natal kittens in their ICU
  • participate in events for the Women’s Exchange of Washentaw, a group for women in business
  • am pet CPR/First Aid certified 

I moved back to Michigan in 2021 (I got my BA at Western Michigan University, go Broncos!) to be close to my sister and watch my nephews grow up. They are both less than 2 years old but I am shooting for the title of Best Aunt in the World.

It’s this same love I give to the pets I care for- your family becomes my family.

I can’t wait to meet you and your fur-babies!

Pets:

Khaleesi, Cat

Interesting Fact:

One day I’m going to open an animal sanctuary!

Biography:

 I’ve always been called an animal whisperer and I love treating all animals like family. Everything from cats and dogs, to cows and sharks are special to me. When I’m not taking care of or helping animals – you can find me traveling, exploring, drinking tea, going to museums and other fun places, checking out a concert, trying new foods or eating my favorites, and spending time with human loved ones. My cat, Khaleesi, adventures almost everywhere with me too!

Biography:

Hello, my name is Maysa! My passion for animal care work started with my previous experience working as an Animal Care Technician. While being an ACT, I was able to care for and learn about many different animals such as cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, rats, and ferrets to name a few.
I currently have one cat named Mochi, who is one of the sweetest boys you’ll ever meet, and I hope to get another cat and a few fish in the future.
