Paula Elandt –  Owner and Founder

Hello!  My name is Paula Elandt and I started watching pets as a “Hobby Business” back in May of 2015.  I quickly realized that there was a tremendous need for home based pet care that was professional, affordable and available 7 days a week.   

I am committed to managing a team of pet sitters and providing Professional In-Home pet care services to the Midland community for many years to come.  I am very proud of the professional Pet Sitters that work for me and would absolutely trust them with my own pets and with the reputation of Paula’s Pet Sitting!

Amy C. –  Administrative Assistant

Hi!  My name is Amy Clark and I will be the person responding to all phone calls, emails and text messages Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  I ensure that our Pet Care provider’s schedules flow smoothly and the needs of our client’s and their pets are taken care of.

I have been owned and loved by animals for my entire life. I have owned a variety of pets including barn animals, horses, cats, dogs, rats, reptiles, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, hermit crabs, birds, fish, etc.  The only critter I am not comfortable with is SPIDERS!  

For years I spent a lot of time involved in training and showing dogs.  It was a ton of fun but also a huge time commitment, especially on the weekends.  As my children started to get busy in sports on the weekends, I decided to give up my hobby for the time being so I could be there to support them.  

The thing I love best about pet sitting is that no matter what kind of day I am having, animals always make my day better!

Gigi paulas-gigi-2Z. –  Pet Care Provider

Hi!  I provide pet sitting, dog walks and overnight house sitting.

I’m originally from Dearborn MI. I have always loved visiting my grandparents farm near Midland where I learned to care for their dogs, cats and sheep and they even had a goose when I was little.  I love nature and all animals so it’s great to now live in the Midland area.

Hi There!  I provide Mid-Day Dog Walks and Vacation Services.

I love animals, and believe that a pet is a fundamental source of unconditional love 😉 I feel privileged to be able to help other people provide care for their pets!

While growing up, and while raising my own children, I have enjoyed having many different types of pets, from rats and cavies to birds and fish to dogs and cats. I currently share a home with my cat and three goldfish.

Angie MAngela M. – Pet Care Provider
Hi there!  I provide Mid-Day Dog Walks, Vacation Services and Overnight House Sitting Services.

 I have had dogs in my life since I was 4 years old. When I got older I was not able to have children so my dogs have always been my kids. I understand each pet has a personality all it’s own.

I look forward to getting to know your pets!

Phil S. – Pet Care Provider

I am originally from the Traverse City area, but have lived in Midland for the past 15 years. I’ve always had a love for animals and have always had a best friend in the form of a cat or dog.
 
While going to school at CMU, I was in a zoology course learning about animal behavior and realized I wanted a career revolving around animals. I can’t wait to make more animal friends!
