We realize how difficult it is to relax when you’re away if you’re worried about the happiness and care of your furry, finned or feathered companion.
BoneStar was created to deliver unparalleled service to people and their companion animals — providing peace of mind for the human and a pleasurable experience for the pet.
Your pet will be lavished with affection and personalized attention. We take the time to find out who your pet is and take great pride and pleasure in customizing the visit to fit his or her needs.
BoneStar is bonded and insured for your protection. We’re also an active member of and uphold the code of ethics of both the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) and Austin Pet Sitters Organization (APSO).
Whether you’re taking a trip or working long hours, you can trust your cherished companion to BoneStar.
Who is BoneStar?
It all began with a poodle named Go-Go. Growing up in a family of animal lovers, I’ve been surrounded by pets since birth. When I was eight years old, our neighbor asked if I would care for Go-Go while he was away on business. I was very serious about my new job, and word spread. Soon I became the neighborhood pet sitter of choice — something that lasted until the time I left for college.
Fast forward a few decades. After a long and successful career in technology, I decided to return to my roots and do something I really love. BoneStar was born.
I pledge to care for your pets as if they were my own, treat you with honesty and the highest level of integrity, and care for your property with the utmost respect.
One of my core values is giving back to the community. I’m active in Austin area animal welfare groups including Lago Vista PAWS, Heart of Texas Pug Rescue, and The Austin Pug Club.
My current menagerie includes four rescue pugs — Dumpling, Sumo, Buddha and Gidget — as well as Comet the cat who knows she’s the supreme ruler of the household! And the biggest advantage of pet sitting? It allows me to add more pets to my menagerie without bringing them home!
