Hi, I’m Audrey! I am a Pet Care Provider for animals with special needs with over 10 years of experience. I grew up with pets my whole life and started pet sitting in the summer of 2007, caring for a variety of animals for family and friends, then offered professional pet services in the fall of 2014, establishing a clientele in the Chicagoland area. I once worked part-time as a Pet Grooming Apprentice at Barkin’ Boutique, a pet grooming salon where I bathed dogs and cats while tending to their needs and learned grooming skills from my supervisors. I also volunteered at Lockport Animal Hospital, shadowing the technicians and assisted them caring for ill animals, and at Windy City Arabians, handling horses and aiding the ranch hands. I currently foster and volunteer for Romeoville Humane Society, caring for their cats at Petsmart in Joliet.
I originally started offering pet services as a way to save money to enroll in the Vet Tech program at Joliet Junior College, but ultimately decided to expand my work via establishing Bipetual Care LLC. My goals still involve making a career working with and caring for animals, originally by becoming a Veterinary Technician, with intention to now certify myself as a Dog Trainer, Pet Groomer, Animal Behavior Consultant, among other titles to add to my experience of caring for pets. To put it simply, I have a deep love for animals and can’t see myself living without them, so what better way to share my love than to care for your fur babies?
For my repeat clients who originally booked me through Rover.com, I thank you immensely for transitioning with me to continue booking my services and of course for making this possible! Despite Rover.com being an overall good experience and helping me establish a clientele, I felt there was no more room to grow or expand my services under their platform, and those limitations inspired me to take the next step of leaving Rover.com to create my own business. With Bipetual Care, I aim to serve and cater to animals of all kinds with a variety of needs that other Pet Care Providers may find challenging or turn down, whereas I and my team will always up for the challenge! We strive to give the best possible care for any and every client’s animal as if they were our own family, and look forward to growing within this community along the way!
