Just Fur-Babies Pet Sitting and Walking Services is an individually owned business founded in 2016 by Kelly Detherow. 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.
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 service that is provided. 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.
For over 20 years, Kelly was a leader in corporate sales. Her training instilled the importance of forging lasting long term relationships and the highest quality of customer service. Kelly was repeatedly acknowledged for her outstanding sales performance, winning several awards. Her creative strategies enabled Kelly to surpass company goals and excel in her career.
Struggling to find the quality care for her own fur family and pursue her childhood dream of working with animals, she decided to walk away from her successful career. The inception of Just Fur-Babies is to offer pet owners the consistent dependable care they expect and their pets deserve. Early on, Kelly built the foundation by networking with industry leaders on a successful business model. The strong business infrastructure provides the opportunity to focus primarily on the client and their needs.
Her relationships continue to grow as she collaborates both locally and on national levels. She is a member of Pet Sitters International (PSI), attending the PSI World Conference in San Diego, California in 2016.
Kelly is certified in Pet First Aid & CPR by Pet First Aid 4U and has received her certification in Professional Pet Sitting from PSI in January 2017. In 2019, she is now certified to as a Pet First Aid, CPR and Safety Instructor through Pro Pet Hero to provide classroom training to pet parents and professionals.
Continuing her education to provide knowledge to pet parents, assisting them with their human/pet bond, Kelly has completed the Veterinary Professional Certification Program through Fear Free in May 2020. She will continue her certifications with Fear Free by completing higher levels and in different programs to “help take the “pet” out of “petrified”
