When I first got to Okinawa in 2005, I was frustrated that there weren’t good pet care options available. I dreaded asking friends to care for my dogs and hated the thought of putting them into a kennel while I traveled.

Being an animal lover with plenty of extra energy, I decided to offer a better, friendlier pet care option to those living here. Over the years, I’ve found that I still LOVE spending time with your pets!

I have been an animal lover all my life – from my first pet (a gerbil), to my first dog (a boxer), to rescuing dogs off the streets of Miami & Okinawa, I know that having pets around is always something that always makes me happy.

My husband & I have 2 Miniature Pinschers (one 8 yrs & the other 6), who have been brightening our lives everyday since they were puppies.

As my husband and I were surprised by the arrival of our newborn adopted son recently, we will not be accepting dogs into our home for some time. We apologize for this – Please stay tuned for other “Home Away from Home” options!

There have been pets in my family for as long as I can remember. Both cats and dogs, some who were strays or pets that others didn’t have the time or space to take care of, so we opened our home to them.

My husband and I moved here in July of 2012 and have two cats that are three years old and are acquainted with other animals from our home back in the States. I have a lot of love and compassion in my heart for animals.

I really enjoy caring for pets, and it’s a good feeling to know that I can take of others’ while they are away. I can give them peace of mind so they don’t need to worry about how their beloved pets are being treated.

Nichole does not currently accept pets into her home due to her cats – we apologize for that – please stay tuned for other “Home Away from Home” options!

I’ve grown up with tons of animals in my life. Dogs and rabbits in my own home, cats and dogs with all my friends, and birds with the rest of my family. With being around them all the time, I found myself loving them more and more. When my husband and I got to Okinawa, I couldn’t imagine not having a pet of my own. Fast forward to me picking up my very own kitten. Here we are a year later and she is my spoiled baby. I want to extend the love I have for her, to every other furrbaby I meet, no matter how big or small they are. There’s no better feeling then when you see that smile on their face and you know you did something to put it there.

I grew up with dogs and cats all around me. At the age of 10 I started to pet-sit for the neighborhood and have kept it up over all the years. I have made my life work with helping animals big and small. I have been A Vet Tech for over 18 years and worked with large, small, and exotic animals. I love every minute of my work. I enjoy hiking and being at the beach with me family. We have a bird and a turtle now, but have had many dogs and exotic pets over the years and love them all.
