About Us



I am originally from the Netherlands and now live in Huntersville.  I developed my love for animals later in life, and now, cannot imagine my life without them.  I started Tender Paws Pet Sitting in 1999 and I just love my job.  I have a soft spot in my heart for rescue animals.  I am the guardian of Lucy, and recently rescued a 15 year old blind Yorkie named Murphy.




Kathy lives in Cornelius.  She has taken care of animals her whole life.  She is the proud owner of two dogs and a bird. Animals are her passion and she cannot wait to take care of yours.







Debi lives in Huntersville. She is familiar with all kinds of animals, including farm animals. She’s the proud Mom of 3 beagles. Debi cannot wait to meet your pets.
