Company History

Just Fur-Babies Professional Pet Care Services was founded in 2016 by Kelly Detherow. Kelly’s mission for Just Fur-Babies has always been to be transparent, professional and consistent to our clients and their pets. Through real time communication, we are able to build the trust needed to become surrogate parents to our fur clients and give their human parents a peace of mind. It brings a unique, one-of-a-kind business concept to the area by providing a client with service in their home and strives for the best care for their fur-babies while the owners are at work, at play or when travel keeps them away. Utilizing the latest technology available for our industry, our clients tell us our services are such a convenience for them!

We make a positive impact on our clients and their fur-babies every day. We accomplish this by seeking to understand the specific needs and expectations for each services that we provide. We work together as a team (pet parent & sitter) to reduce anxiety and stress for both the pets and the owners by looking after both the physical and emotional well-being. We operate with integrity, accountability, and professionalism in every aspect of our work.

In 2018, Just Fur-Babies developed a partnership with Cats at Home to assist with cat sitting in the Johnson County, KS & South KC, MO area.

In 2019, Price Brothers Property Management created the Pet Royalty Club as a resource for their pet parents in the Kansas City area. Just Fur-Babies was selected as the preferred Pet Care provider for the communities.

Also, 2020 brought the acquisition of the Great Catsby cat sitting company, giving Just Fur-Babies over 500 clients.

In 2022, Just Fur-Babies pivoted to cat sitting as our signature service. Quality, professional and premium in home care for our feline friends in Kansas City is lacking. We have made it our focus to change this. Our team is more experienced in cat psychology and body language because we are focused on the feline experience. Our plan is to educate and share our knowledge through fundamental courses designed for you, their families.

Our Pet Care Professionals have worked with over 2,500 animals and completed over 20,000 visits!
