Meet the Smiles & Purrs Family

                      Sara                                         Eric                                      


I am a former full-time veterinary technician with 11 years experience in the pet sitting field. I have volunteered part-time with an animal rescue and foster kittens when I can. I also am the very proud rescue mom of Amelia, a Domestic Longhair, and Hecubus, a very hyper but loving Beagle mix. When not pet sitting or chasing my own furry critters around, I enjoy dabbling in art and music. I have very happily lived in Carroll county since November of 2012 and look forward to meeting you and your four-legged family!

Hi! My name is Eric and I've been an honorary member of Smiles & Purrs since the beginning of the business. Sara is my stepmom and I've been coming along with her on pet stops for years, but I joined the team officially in July of 2019. I've grown up with pets in the household my whole life, and I have gained experience caring for dogs, cats, birds, fish, chickens, turtles and even leopard geckos! 

My name is Josie and I’ve been working for Sara for 2 years now. I have previous experience working with dogs, cats, and lizards since I had them all growing up and still do! I also have 5 years of previous equine care experience so caring for a small farm is not an issue! Animals are my world, so looking after them as a job is a dream opportunity. I hope to meet you and your fur-babies soon!
