Kings & Queens Pet Sitting was started because we didn’t see our pets as “pets”. We saw them as members of our family that needed personalized care when we were gone.
“We didn’t see our pets as pets… we saw them as members of our family…”
We didn’t want to drop them off in an unfamiliar environment, surrounded by constant noise, and confined to a cage. Nor did we want someone to just come in and let them out, set down food and then be rushed off because the time ran out or they had something better to do. That’s not what our relationship is with our pets. We come in and greet them, kiss them, talk to them about our day. Maybe take a nice walk or just sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. We spend time with each one of them so they know how much they mean to us. All they have is us to look forward to all day, so why don’t we show them how much we look forward to seeing them.
My pets are my kids, my other half, my world, and are always there for me. They are my family and they deserve the best! We don’t want to just watch your pets while you are away, we want them to know how much you love them by providing them with the best personalized care just shy of the real thing, you.
We are changing the way people care for their beloved pets, because they are no longer, just pets. Learn how Kings & Queens Pet Sitting got started!
We were so happy with Kings & Queens! They took great care of our dogs and our house. They sent us pictures of the dogs daily and wrote great details of each visit.
Hi, my name is Andrea Meller. I am a wife, mother, and pet owner. I have 3 cats, 1 turtle, and 18 fish. I love dogs and owned a dachshund growing up, but my son is allergic to dogs, so we cannot have one in our home. That is one of the reasons why I decided to become a pet sitter. Now I can still interact with dogs — play with them, walk them, and love on them every day.
Before joining Kings & Queens, I did pet sit dogs, cats, and fish for friends and neighbors while they were on vacation. Also, I have had friends and professionals pet sit my animals, so I know what I like and don’t like when it comes to pet sitters. My goal is to provide you with the service I would want if someone were watching my sweet kitties.
As a homeowner I am a little obsessive about setting our home security system, even for quick trips to the grocery store. And I regularly check the back door just to make sure it is locked before I leave. I will do the same at your home – or more if there is anything that would make you feel more comfortable while you are out.
Thank you for allowing me to take care of your pets. I know they are valuable family members.
Hello, my name is Amanda. I have had a love and passion to rescue and care for animals especially cats since I was a little girl. I remember sneaking shoe boxes, baby blankets and food and water behind the brushes of my childhood home for the homeless animals then I would eventually convince my parents to let us keep them. I currently have three cats and one dog of my own. I am a volunteer for the Arlington Animal Shelter and Feline Friends of Arlington Animal Services then I foster kittens and cats for Averting Cat-astrophe within my home.
As a retired educator of 33 years, I am eager to serve Kings & Queens Pet Sitting owners and paw clients. My background working with animals began at an early age being raised with a young Collie pup who moved with us from Indiana to Texas as well as having several cats of which I hold many fond memories. As an adult, I have raised two Maine Coon cats and now have two miniature schnauzers in my home. Also, I have helped friends and neighbors who needed someone to care for their pets when away.
I treat my pets like family members. I make sure they are loved, cared for and safe in their home environment, including activating the alarm system when leaving. Having used pet sitters over the years, it is comforting to know my babies are well taken care of when I am away. When I started as a client of Kings & Queens, I was so impressed with their quality of service that I wanted to join their staff. I am committed to sharing this quality of service with Kings & Queens paw clients.
Scherree Smith- Owner
Scherree founded Kings & Queens Pet Sitting in 2008. She wanted to change the way people care for their pets, because she didn't see them as pets. Her parents introduced her to a large doberman named Dutchess when she was a young girl and always taught her to care for the pets as if they were another human being. Before she decided to turn her love for animals into a career she worked for the Texas Department of State Health Services for 6.5 years! She enjoyed working in epidemiology and community preparedness, but working with pets is where her heart is at. She currently has two Pitbulls (Dojah & Blu) and a cat (mittens). All rescues! She is also very passionate about educating people on animals, especially the “aggressive breeds” (there’s no such thing FYI) and breeding aka puppy mills.
In 2012 she started volunteering at the Arlington Animal Shelter with FAAS (Friends of Arlington Animal Services), a non-profit volunteer organization. Mainly updating their Facebook page and helping out at PetSmart events. She has also fostered cats and transported animals when needed. She says, "There isn’t a greater feeling than knowing that such a small gesture can save a life. I can’t explain the feeling you get from saving these animals. You can tell they know what is going on and are so grateful for what you are doing for them."
Please consider fostering an animal on the EU list or adopting one of the many wonderful animals on their page here. You can also donate to FAAS (Friends of Arlington Animal Services) through their paypal link. If you have blankets, towels, beds, food, etc. that you would like to donate we would be more than happy to take it for you, just give us a call! Anything you donate would go to the TNR program, the new clinic for TNR, to the Arlington shelter, and to fosters and rescues that need extra supplies. We could always use more help, so if you would like to volunteer your time please go here to sign up! We try to hold fundraisers a few times a year to help raise money for the shelter and local rescues, so follow us on facebook to see when and where!
