I’m Jennifer and this is my Gracie. I’ve been working with AAPC for 7 years. I love taking care of your babies as if they were my own! This job allows me to enjoy pets as if they were mine BUT give them back to you when you return home. I provide pet care in the North east Raleigh area.
I have been a huge animal lover since I was a small child. I have had both dogs and cats as pets while growing up. I now live with 3 very spoiled cat animal children that see me and my husband as their devoted staff. I previously had 2 rabbit children and loved them deeply. I have been volunteering at the Wake County SPCA for over a year working with both cats and dogs. I cannot go without working once a week with both, there is no sunshine. I have always been very passionate about the care and welfare of all animals. Any animal children under my care are just an extension of my four legged animal children that already reside at my home in Knightdale. It is truly a special bond that exists between animal parents and their animal children, and I truly get it… I feel it in my heart… there’s nothing else like it. Animal children give us so much more than we could ever give them. Cindy serves Northeast Raleigh.
Hi my name is Caroline and I started working for Ark Angels in December. I really enjoy caring and getting to know your pets and providing special attention to them while you are away. I am very appreciative of the chance to work at Ark Angels and for the trust and relationships formed with both pets and their owners.
I enjoy running, yoga, checking out flea markets and spending lots of family time with my awesome husband, children and pets. We have two dogs, Lightning and McQueen, and two parakeets Doc and Mater. I cover the West Raleigh area and can’t wait to meet and care for your pets!
Chris has just joined Ark Angels Pet Care after thirty years as a commercial landscape contractor.
He’s an admitted dog fanatic and has had at least one four legged friend he was four years old. A few of his beloved dogs have been mixed breeds, three awesome Golden Retrievers and a Corgi with a giant sense of humor!
Chris has completed a pet first aid course with Pet Tech and is thrilled to begin his “retirement” career with Ark Angels Pet Care.
He can’t think of anything more rewarding!!!
Hi. My name is Michele and this is my little buddy Rowdy. I started at Ark Angels in March of 2016. What a great team to work for and to know that I’m working with people who love animals as much as I do. We all know how important it is to find someone who’s trustworthy and will love your pets as if they were our own while you’re away.
I have been enjoying the love from my pets and loving them since I was 5 yrs old or what I can remember. It all started with guppies in my mother’s tupperware bowls. Then the fish tanks were getting bigger and bigger. I used to buy the sick fish from the pet store and take them home and medicate them back to health. Then came the parakeet, the finches and a cockatiel. We also had many cats, two ferrets, a rabbit, and lots of pups that lived on my Aunt’s farm.
I am looking forward to helping our clients who need Angels to watch over their beloved pets!
Michelle serves the Brier Creek and Northwest Raleigh area.
My name is Michelle. I’m originally from Minnesota and I graduated from UW-Madison (Go Badgers!!). My family has lived in Wisconsin, Boston, Tampa and, for the last 6 years Cary. Everywhere we’ve lived, my family has included animals. Currently we have 2 cats (Yum-Yum and Bear), Helga the St. Bernard lap dog, Hogan a Great Pyrenees 120-pound puppy, Tully a mighty Coton de Tulear, Bruce the Beta fish and Tequila the bearded dragon.
I believe you can never get enough furry love in your life so my son, daughter and I all volunteer at Second Chance Pet adoptions. When I’m not covered in fur, I enjoy traveling with my husband, family board game nights, Pilates and working as an election official for the Wake County Board of Elections.
I deeply appreciate how special and important your fur (and furless) family members are to you and am honored to give them all the love, care and attention they deserve as your pet sitter.

My name is Melanie, and I’m very excited to be working with Ark Angels Pet Care! Animals are my life and my passion… I’ve been volunteering with various rescue organizations since I was 7 years old, and I’ve worked with almost any animal you can think of! I graduated from NC State in 2012 with degrees in Zoology and Psychology so that I could persue a career with animals. I’ve worked with domestic pets including dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and more to more exotic tigers, elephants and lemurs, in everything from rescues, rehabilitation centers, sanctuaries and zoos. I currently have 3 cats of my own: Lilly, Swashbuckler, and Naboo. I look forward to meeting you and your furry, feathered and scaly family members! I’ll be providing care to our clients in West Raleigh and Cary.
Hello! My name is Elizabeth. I am originally from New Jersey. At an early age, my sister Annemarie and I would find and rescue stray cats and dogs. Thankfully our parents supported our efforts and opened up their home to all we would bring them. When my sister and I reminisce about our childhood, we fondly remember all of our pets and the joy they brought us. We also remember the unconditional love that we received in return. My sister still resides in New Jersey, and volunteers at numerous shelters in her free time. I relocated to North Raleigh 16 years ago with my husband John, and my two daughters, Claudia and Cecilia. We adopted three precious cats – Chase, Nicci, and Tigger! We also have a sweet guinea pig named S’more, and a beta fish named Fleek! Our beloved rescue Ginger, a lab mix, passed away in 2012. I know the peace of mind it brings to know your pet is being cared for with love and compassion in your absence. I also know first hand the heartache it is to have a pet who is ill, and how hard it is to leave them at times. You will find me to be a friendly, outgoing, and compassionate person, who will love your pets as if they were my own. It is an honor to be part of such an amazing team at Ark Angels Pet Care. I cover the North Raleigh area. In addition to being a professional pet sitter and mom, I enjoy yoga, body pump, and hiking. I also am an HGTV junkie, and love to dabble in interior design. I look forward to meeting you and your beautiful pet family!
Hello! My name is Kathleen and I live in Raleigh with my partner Max and our Lab-mix, Luna. I attended Appalachian State, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education. Shortly after, I moved to Raleigh where I began teaching Art at Knightdale High School of Collaborative Design. It was rewarding working with students, but I was ready to be a student again… I am in my first year of the Masters of Landscape Architecture program at NCSU.
When I am not in the classroom you can catch me in my yard enjoying a cup of coffee and pulling weeds, at one of the various yoga studios around town, or walking Luna! Since we added Luna to the family our lives have been so full. And growing up in a house full of four legged friends I know how important your animals are to you. That’s why I strive to become an expert caregiver to your pets!
Hi! My name is George and I joined the team with Ark Angels Pet Care this year. I’m originally from Pennsylvania and returned to Raleigh, NC a couple of years ago to be close to my family and intend to stay in this lovely state. I have degrees in Psychology and worked in a few different fields most recently for a hospital system in Pennsylvania. I have done volunteer work for two local hospitals here as well.
I have had dogs of varying sizes in my life and with me now is Annabelle an 8 year old 8 pound Chihuahua who is my sidekick. I care about the welfare of all animals and get much satisfaction and enjoyment caring for clients’ pets as I would care for my own. In April 2017 I completed a Professional Pet Care Provider First Aid and CPR Workshop which provided very useful information.
I’m semi-retired and working for Ark Angels Pet Care has been rewarding. I look forward to being your pet sitter.
Hi, I’m Hannah. I moved from the UK over 7 years ago and my pet family started to grow from there. We have 3 dogs and 2 cats (who think they’re dogs) and I adore them! I love taking care of other people’s cats and dogs and treat them as my own so I look forward to meeting your fur family.
