Maureen McCarthy
(Owner/Animal Lover)
Pack Leader

My name is Maureen McCarthy, I moved to Indian Trail NC in July 2006 with my husband  (retired NYC Police Officer)  and my beautiful daughter.  I have 3 wonderful dogs and 2 goldfish.  I would have cats, however, my husband is allergic to them.  So, I do get to spend some time loving up on the kitties when my clients have cats for me to care for.  I have always had a love for animals for as long as I can remember.  When I was a child I brought home every stray that I found, and my mom would always tell me “Maureen, you can not save them all”  In 1980 I started a summer job working in a dog grooming shop and ended up working there for 8 years.  I then moved on to open my own grooming shop.   I have worked with dogs and cats either grooming or pet sitting since 1980.  when I moved to NC in 2006 I started Love and Kisses Pet Sitting.  I had to fly to NY for a wedding and had no one to care for my dog so I boarded him ( I would never board my dog again).  He came home with no bark and a scratched up nose ( from trying to get out of the cage).  I said I don’t want any other dog to have to go through that and that is why I started my pet sitting/dog walking business.  I was always told to follow my heart and so I did!!!  My promise to you is that I will care for your pets as I would want mine cared for.


 At Love and Kisses Pet Sitting we work hard to ensure that all of our pet sitters are not only animal lovers but service and detail oriented, trustworthy, reliable, compassionate and hardworking as well. Love and Kisses Pet Sitting is dedicated to making sure your pets are happy, healthy, and content while in our care.

Michelle
Lead pet sitter/Animal Lover
I am originally from Orange County California. I moved to the North Carolina with my husband, two children and at the time, one dog in 2006.  I have loved animals as long as I can remember and much to my parent’s dismay would always bring home any stray that I found.  Over the years, we have had dogs, cats, birds, mice, hamsters, and fish!  After starting my own family, I was surprised to learn that my youngest was very afraid of animals.  Her older brother wanted a dog badly and began trying to convince her that the way to get over her fear was to get a big dog of their own.  She finally agreed and that is how we got Roxy!  We found Roxy at the pound in California and adopted her when she was 4 months old.  Roxy is said to be a German Shepherd/Akita mix, and we love her!  After getting settled into our new home, I decided Roxy needed a fur friend and set out to find a perfect match.  I knew black dogs were the hardest to get adopted, so I began checking various shelters for a large black dog with the right temperament to deal with Roxy and her powerful presence.  I found Bear, a Pit/Lab mix who was 1 yr old and had never had a family ask to meet him! He captured my heart and we brought him home.  He was very fearful of people but loved animals. Go figure!  He has been part of the family for 6 yrs now and the difference is amazing.  I have often pet sit for neighbors and love their pets like they were my own and now I have the opportunity to meet and love even more animals

Heather 
Assistant office manager/Lead Pet Sitter/Animal Lover

Hi, I am Heather and I am originally from Mobile, Alabama. I moved to North Carolina (Weddington) with husband and two children in 2001. I have four dogs, two Labs named Bree and Katie, a Yorkie named Sam and a Beagle named Jules. I have always loved animals and can not remember a time that I did not have a pet.  I would love to have a farm where I could have has many animals as I wanted. Since I probably will not have a farm I thought getting to play with your pets would be the next best thing!  I look forward to caring for your pets and keeping you updated as to how they are doing in my care.

Hi! My name is Jenny and I am excited to care for your precious animals! I am originally from Rochester Hills Michigan but have lived in Indian Trail for the past 11 years. I am married and a mom to three wonderful kids who keep me running! We are proud pet parents to two pups and two guinea pigs. I have been a dog lover since as young as I can remember.

When I am with kids and animals I am truly in my happy place. I look forward to the opportunity to meet so many more wonderful animals and take care of them as I would my own!

Angela, pet sitter dog walker for Love and Kisses Pet SittingAngela
Pet Sitter/Animal Lover
Hi, I’m Angela.  I was born and raised in South Carolina and moved to North Carolina nearly 20 years ago.  My passion has always been helping the “underdog,” especially those with disabilities, but I was truly hooked on animals and rescue when I experienced their amazing ability to compensate and persevere after an injury or impairment all while maintaining the same loving attitude.  This occurred when my first dog went deaf and then the second went blind while in their senior years.  From that point on, they stayed side by side and became the ears and eyes for each other.  Then I adopted a crippled rabbit and as they say, the rest is history. For the last several years I have volunteered extensively and fostered with a local animal rescue organization.  I am also a North Carolina certified wildlife rehabilitator caring for injured and orphaned wildlife.  Along with my husband and two children, my family includes rescued dogs, rabbits, and birds, each with an interesting story.  I understand how important pets are to our families, each with their unique needs, and would be privileged to be entrusted to care for your pets where they feel most safe and comfortable.
 
Nancy Pet Sitter Love and Kisses Pet SittingNancy
Pet Sitter/Animal Lover
Hi! My name is Nancy. I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. Upon learning that my husband’s family business was going to be expanding to the Charlotte area, we made the decision to move our family south. We decided to settle down in Indian Trail in July 2016 and we absolutely love it! Animals have had a special place in my heart since I was a little girl. Being captivated by their innocence and purity, I have always been drawn to help, nurture and love them.  I have several years experience working at dog day cares, boarding and grooming facilities as well as volunteering and fostering for animal rescue organizations. For the first time in many years, I currently only have one pet, Griffin. He is a 3-year-old Lab/Hound mix that we got as a puppy from a rescue organization in Buffalo, NY. Ironically, he and his sisters were brought up north from the Carolinas. Little did he know he would be back to his roots a few years later! I have had to leave my many pets at home or in boarding facilities when traveling and I know how nerve racking that can be. I do my best to make your pet feel as safe and secure as they do when you are home with them. I love meeting and making new animal friends and I look forward to sharing my time and attention with your best friend soon!

Mary
Pet Sitter/Animal Lover
Hello, my name is Mary. My family and I moved to Waxhaw 11 years ago. I am married to John – a licensed plumber. I am a stay-at-home mom of (3) teenagers; our oldest is going off to college this Fall. I am an animal lover! As a ‘tween’ I used my allowance to become a member of ASPCA. My mother was the local ‘cat lady’ and so we gave a home to many stray kitties when I was growing up. Unfortunately because one of my children has severe asthma, we do not have our own fur baby. I have had the wonderful opportunity to care for my friend’s and neighbor’s canines and felines for many years. I am excited to be part of Love and Kisses Pet Sitters and look forward to caring for your furry-darling soon.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Stacy
Pet Sitter/Animal Lover 
Hello! My name is Stacy. I am originally from Roanoke Rapids, NC but have called Union County home for almost 20 years. I grew up in the country and had countless animals as a child. From dogs and cats to sheep, goats, donkeys, and even a pet raccoon… I have always loved animals! As a pet owner, we have always had dogs (Labs, Akitas, and German Shepherds), cats, fancy rats, and various reptiles. We currently have two beautiful German Shepherds named Bear and Daisy and a ball python named Ol’ Boy.  My absolute favorite things about any animal are the eyes…. German Shepherds, especially, seem to gaze at you as if they are peering into your heart and soul. One day, I would like to work with therapy dogs and children who have experienced trauma. I am a school counselor and have worked with Union County Public Schools for 16 years, but wanted to do a little something different this summer and decided to do some pet sitting. I look forward to meeting and caring for your animals!

Beth
Pet SitterAnimal Lover
My name is Beth and I have lived in Union County all of my life.  I have been married for seventeen years and we have two sons who are 13 and 11 years old.  I have always had pets in my life.  Currently, I have a five-year-old Jack Russell named Butterbean who believe it or not is shy and timid.  He loves sitting with us and of course, has a special place to sleep on our bed.  My 13-year old son saved up money and rescued our cat, Oliver, who is now two years old.  Oliver has a fun personality when he isn’t napping (which is most of the time)!  Our 11-year old son has a hamster he named Palmer and Palmer are very active at night and has pretty long hair.  We also have four fish tanks.  Through the years all of my dogs and cats have been rescued animals including Butterbean and Oliver. I truly have a love for all animals and I will do my very best to take care of your animals while you are away.
 
Pet Sitter Crystal
Crystal
Pet Sitter/Animal Lover
Hi! My name is Crystal. I am from Charlotte, NC and moved to Indian Trail almost 14 years ago. I am married and a mom of two boys and three fur babies. We have three crazy cats Rosie, Nico, and Buddy and I am proud to say they have me wrapped around their little paws. I grew up having dogs, birds, ferrets, fish, hamsters, mice, rabbits, an iguana and anything else I could convince my parents to let me take care of (although I did try and sneak a chicken into the house once). I also seemed to be a magnet for stray or lost dogs and injured birds and baby squirrels. I helped reunite many lost dogs with their gracious owners and nursed many birds and squirrels back to nature. I have always had a love for animals and the joy they bring into your life. I cannot think of a better way to spend a day than to be with animals. I am excited to be a part of Love and Kisses and I look forward to being able to spend time with your fur babies and provide for your pets needs!
