KIM J. – Lead Dog Walker & Pet Sitter

Kim is known by her family and friends for her love of theater, poetry, and dogs.  Kim has had life-long relationships with a variety of wonderful canines, from a 140 pound Rottweiller named Brutus to her current 11 pound to chiweenie, Japhy. Kim also gave her heart to one rescue dog that required a great deal of special attention, and so she has experience with fear aggression and dog aggression.

In the human realm, Kim is a life coach who recently moved from the Bay Area of California back to Cary to be close to her elderly parents. Cary has changed a lot in the 24 years that she was on the West Coast, but it hasn’t lost its charm, and Kim is thrilled to be back in the beautiful South where the pace is slower and the seasons are dramatic. A graduate of Cary High School and UNC-Chapel Hill, Kim is currently completing a second masters degree in addition to being our Cary Dog Walker and Pet Sitter.


CAROL D. – Dog Walker, Cary

Carol loves animals so much that she routinely brought home strays as a child and had parents who actually let her keep them! She grew up in Raleigh, NC and was lucky enough to move overseas to France for three years and brought her beloved dog Jack who travelled with her everywhere. She knows first hand that French dogs really do understand French (probably better than she does!).

Carol lives in Cary, NC with her family and has two Maine Coon mix cats named Honey and Sadie that match each other, much like her identical teenage twin girls who provided much on-the-job-training that made her a perfect fit for caring for animals. She attended NC State University and has a business degree and spent over eight years working in customer service and in Human Resources. Carol loves to give the animals lots of attention and take care of them just as she does her own.
