Meet Our Team

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!  

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.

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 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!

Hi, my name is Adeline and I provide pet sitting, dog walking, overnight house sitting, and vacation services.

I have had pets my entire life, and I have a huge soft spot for all animals. I currently have 3 pups that love to go running with me. I was a 4-H kid and spent many years training, showing, and caring for a wide variety of animals. I have had dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, goats, sheep, pigs, and horses. I am very comfortable with animals of all breeds large and small including reptiles. I am very excited to have the opportunity to meet and care for your pets as well.

Melissa A. – Pet Care Provider

Hello! My name is Melissa Altman and I was born and raised in Midland, Michigan. Working with animals has always been a passion of mine and I am excited for the opportunity to take care of your fur babies as well. I currently have a 4 year old Australian Shephard named Ruger that always keeps me on my toes! We love to play fetch together and learn new tricks. I am happy to announce that her baby brother will be joining us in a few months! He is a German Shephard and we cannot wait to love him.
I have worked with a variety of animals all breeds and sizes. Being involved with 4h has allowed me to learn a lot as well. Photography is another great interest of mine that I have been doing for 8 years. Capturing moments with friends and family at our cabin on Higgins Lake is my favorite. Ruger loves to go for walks and swimming up there. I look forward to the time I get to spend with your adorable pets as well!
