Watch our video to get a good feeling of who we are:

KSR Pet Care consists of a team of mature employees and office staff who were all thoroughly screened before joining. The relationship with KSR's clients is both personal and professional. Pet clients become part of the family and at the same time KSR Pet Care delivers highly and professionally by thinking outside the box and using experience and common sense in pet care. All sitters are CPR & Pet First Certified and some are skilled in administering subcutaneous fluids. Our team consists of 25+ staff members who we carefully selected. We offer staff benefits (AFLAC, health care, retirement) to create long-term relationships with our team members. Our sitters send text updates and/or leave written notes per visit. We also have a GPS tracking program in place for your peace of mind where sitters check-in with the phone app just outside the door of a client home before going inside and check-out just outside the client home when leaving. A time and location stamp are recorded.


How it began

KSR Pet Care started on November 17, 2008. With passion for pets, organizational talent, a degree in communications and business administration and as a responsible care taker, Karen started her mission to provide Pet Care in McLean, VA and its immediate surrounding area. Today KSR Pet Care services a larger area: McLean/ Tyson's Corner, Falls Church, Vienna, N-Arlington 22205 and 22207, Merrifield, Dunn Loring, Fairfax and Oakton. We are starting to offer pet sitting services in Springfield, Annandale and Great Falls, too.

There is Lexie playful petite German Shepherd, rescued from Virginia German Shepherd Rescue (VGSR), born in 2006 and handsome Harry the junior Korat mix cat, rescued from Last Chance Animal Rescue, born in 2006. In 2013 she adopted Jiffie a golden lab mix, rescued from Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, born in 2010. Cody was adopted early 2017 from Mutts Matter Rescue and is a 10 year old chihuahua.
