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!
I can personally recommend them! They took wonderful care of my high-maintenance beagle and my mom’s bichonne over Thanksgiving holiday. Wonderful!!
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!
