About the sitters
Sammy Podolin has lived in Alpharetta, GA since 2003. Growing up around the corner from an Eventing barn, she was able to convince her parents to let her take riding lessons. It was apparent to Sammy and her family that horses were going to be a lifelong hobby. After five years of weekly lessons, she purchased a horse of her own and has been caring for him ever since.
Sammy grew up with dogs, sometimes up to six in the house at a time as her parents work with local rescue and regularly house foster dogs. In the 10 years that she has been working with horses, she has also gained experience taking care of and working with all types of farm animals including chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, mules, and donkeys. She has years of experience with pet rats, mice, guinea pigs, and bunnies.
Sammy prides herself in taking care of each animal as if they were her own. In the summer of 2017, Sammy attended a 6-week course in Colorado to earn a certification of Equine Massage and Bodywork. Since then, she has continued pursuing her dreams working with animals and continues to educate herself on all aspects of pet care.
Hello! My name is Kaley McLaughlin and I have been a pet sitter and dog walker in the Alpharetta/Atlanta area for over 15 years. I have experience with numerous different breeds of dog, cats, birds, and other exotics, as well as multiple animal homes. I also have experience with giving oral medications and injections, specialty diets, animals with anxiety or special needs, and pets of all ages. I am also pet CPR certified.
I love animals and take pride in taking care of my clients’ furry family members as if they were my own. I truly enjoy being a pet sitter and am looking forward to sitting for you!
I am the wife of a wonderful veterinarian and the mom to two adorable dachshund/pitbull mixes. They keep me on my toes and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I usually like to do a home visit with a new client before the first job begins. That way the client and their pet/s have a chance to meet me, go over any routines or instructions in person and on site, and ask any questions. It also helps me get a better idea of what the client needs and expects.
Catherine is a lifelong equestrian who has always had a deep love and respect for animals - especially horses and rabbits!
She is thankful to have grown up in an area where there are horses around every corner, which allowed her to learn how to care for them starting at a very young age. Working at a veterinarian for a number of years also allowed her to expand her knowledge of animal care to other species including dogs, cats, birds, pigs, goats, and many more!
Animals have and will always be a part of her life, and she enjoys getting to know the different personalities and creating a bond with every species she encounters.
