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.



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.
