Your Pet Care Professionals


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 ladies 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!  

Stephanie T. –  Pet Sitter

Hi. My name is Stephanie Thomas.

Over the past 16 years we (my family and I) have had 3 dogs and 2 cats. For over three years we have volunteered in many different capacities at the humane society of Midland county. Whether it be walking dogs, loving on cats, community outreach or live trapping, we love it all. Through the foster program at the shelter we have fostered several special needs dogs and cats and my favorite bottle- feed kittens. As a family we love to give these kittens the start they deserve and prepare them for their furever homes.

I’m excited to take care of your animal(s) while you’re away.

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.


MarciaMarcia B. – Pet Care Provider
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.

Stacey E. – Pet Sitter

Hi! I provide Mid-Day Dog Walks, Vacation Services and Overnight House Sitting Services.

I am originally from Lincoln, Nebraska but have lived here in Midland a little over 10 years now. I have found it to be a fantastic place to raise my 2 children and I love the small town feel of the community!  I have loved animals for as long as I can remember and have always had them in my life.  I’ve owned just about everything at some point through the years including dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, fish, hamsters, and even a gecko!  I’m an equal opportunity animal lover!  I have always found comfort and joy in the unconditional love they provide us. When I lived in Nebraska I volunteered on Saturday mornings at the Humane Society walking dogs.  I found it so rewarding.  I look forward to the opportunity of getting to care for and love your furry family members the same way you do because they are FAMILY!

Hi there!  I provide Mid-Day Dog Walks, Vacation Services and Overnight House Sitting Services.

 I have had dogs in my life since I wa 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!

Hello!  I provide Mid-Day Dog Walks, Vacation Services and Overnight House Sitting Services.

My family has always has a number of pets at various times, ranging from two cats and a golden retriever, to two pomeranian/shitzu mixes and a hampster. I often dog sit for close friends and family. For two years I was an active volunteer at the Isabella Country Animal Shelter as a dog walker. This constant exposure to various pets and their unique personalities has filled my heart with joy and passion.
I look forward to caring for your pets as well.

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

Although I grew up in Michigan, I moved to Kentucky for about three years and only recently moved back to the area. I believe pets are such an important part of a family. I have cats of my own and they are such a huge part of my life.

I love animals and am so excited to meet yours!

Hey there! I provide Mid-Day Dog Walks as well as Vacation Services.

I can confidently say that I have always been very passionate about animals. Growing up, my family has always had pets and I am frequently called by family and friends to take care of theirs as well. I was an active volunteer at the Arenac County Animal Control for 4 years and worked as a kennel attendant/veterinary assistant for about 3 years.

I have an enormous heart for all animals and can’t wait to have the opportunity to befriend yours!
