Connected Pets provides families a wide range of reliable services for their pet(s). Our mission is not only to give quality, personalized care to the furry/scaly/feathery family members, but also provide peace of mind that the home and pet(s) are safe.
Our pet sitting service offers the best of care while the family is away from the home. We care for the pet(s) in the comfort of their own home, eliminating the stress and anxiety seen in animals when placed in an unfamiliar environment, such as a typical kennel or boarding facility. We also utilize electronic photo/video updates, mobile apps, and 24/7 live webcam feeds to give clients a sense a connection and presence with their pet(s), even when away from their homes for extended periods of time. Home security checks are also performed at the start of each service to provide that extra peace of mind.
Our mobile grooming service will have all pets looking and feeling their best! Regular maintenance for the pet's coat and hygiene is imperative for a happy and healthy animal. Connected Pets makes this easy with our mobile grooming service which will come right to the client's home and assist with all grooming needs.
Connected Pets is bonded and insured through Business Insurers of the Carolinas. Connected Pets pet sitting staff are Certified Professional Pet Sitters through the International Pet Sitting Association and all staff complete the Red Cross Pet First Aid Certification program.
I live in Mauldin, SC with my wife (Andrea), 2 dogs (Sabby and Chase), and cat (Luna). I worked as a law enforcement officer for 10 years before deciding to change career paths and create the pet sitting service Connected Pets. Over my lifetime, I have cared for dogs, cats, hamsters, gerbils, fish, guinea pigs, frogs, snakes, and turtles. This passion has carried over into Connected Pets and I use the lifetime of experience with animals, as well as the 10 years of working experience in law enforcement, to give each client peace of mind that both pet(s) and home are in good hands.

The loving wife here! This adventure started with me as an engineer by day, pet sitter when I could. Now with the business growing and Greenville on the rise, I'm joining the gang full time to help care for your animals! The Kretschmar's are suckers for fur babies and I promise to treat them as my own.
I am an animal lover and dog mom to Jersey and Grigsby as well as cat mom to my "first" pet Minnie. I grew up surrounded by animals of all shapes and sizes. I have experience working in veterinary care and grooming. As a previous employee at a veterinary office I was able to gain knowledge about emergencies, administering medication, grooming of the nails, ears, teeth and coat. Animals have always brought me so much joy and I look forward to meeting your pup and providing excellent care while you are away!
This is me and my fur baby, Kitty. She's an older lady now but still loves to play like a kitten. To put it simply, I love animals. I believe our job is so important because pets are family, and deserve the best care while you are away! When I'm not chasing my toddler or walking a dog, you can find me curled up under a blanket with Netflix and a cup of tea.
My name is Kaitlin Stancil and I am very passionate about animals and their well being. I dream of being a professional groomer one day in the future! I have a dog named Lyla Bell, 3 guinea pigs and 3 fish tanks! Lyla is 4 years old and she loves to play with her frisbees and play keep away with her toys. I have always wanted to fight for animals and make sure whatever animal I come in contact with is properly cared for. I have worked as a manager at Pet Supermarket and I’ve worked in retail since 2017. In my free time I make art in every form, paintings, crocheting, drawing and more!
My wife and I have lived in the Greenville area for 15 years now. We currently have 2 kids and 4 fur babies (2 Goldens, a terrier mix and a cat). I love animals of all types, shapes and sizes. Over my life I’ve owned all kinds of animals at one time or another. I have never met a strangimal and my wife can frequently be heard saying “go ahead and pet him” when we see a dog out in public. Pets are part of our family and that’s the way I treat everyone’s pets. I’m excited to meet you and your pets. I strive to keep them happy and healthy while you have to be away from them.
I have lived in Greenville my whole life and now live in Greer. I will be studying at USC Upstate in the fall and have a passion for learning and personal growth in all areas of life. I'm a huge softie for all animals and have taken care of a variety of animals since I was young. I grew up with two cats, the occasional reptile (snakes, turtles, tortoises), and my pup Sammy, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who I had since I was 5. I currently have none of my own pets since Sammy passed away in March of 2021 at the age of 12, however, I always see myself with some sort of fur baby in my life when I do get the chance again. You can always find me socializing with animals if there are any around, I tend to make furry friends wherever I go! I believe animals really do make us better people and deserve the best care. I love helping animals and people alike, so I look forward to caring for your pets and as a result, help you and give you peace of mind that your pets are well cared for
My name is Melody and I have been a Professional Pet Stylist for the past seven years. I grew up here in Greenville with a household always full of pets. While I was finishing my Bachelor’s Degree in Music, I took a part time job as a bather in a Corporate Pet Store. I fell in love with caring for dogs’ grooming needs and after several years in Corporate as well as private salons, I decided to branch out to mobile grooming. The transition has been absolutely phenomenal! I love being able to spend time with your dog one-on-one and giving them a truly pampering spa day. Using the most current grooming trends as well as the best products and methods for skin and coat health, I will not only make your canine companion look their best, but they will also feel their best! When the fur is not flying, you can find me hanging out with my husband, toddler, and our Boxer, Ace. I look forward to spoiling your pup(s) on their Spa Day!
Melody is a member of The National Dog Groomers Association of America (NDGAA) and is also an AKC S.A.F.E Certified Groomer.
Hi! My name is Erika. My husband and I have called Greenville home for the past 15 years. We have raised two amazing boys and three beautiful golden retrievers together. For the past 18 years I have worked as a diagnostic medical sonographer. Ultrasounds have been my passion! But life is short...I cannot ignore my passion for animals. Compassionate, trustworthy, and reliable have been my strongest assets. I have been a pet sitter for the past two years with great success! Happy clients as well as personal growth is all I have wished for! It would truly be my pleasure to care for your fur babies! I look forward to meeting your family!
I am an animal lover and pet owner. Over a few decades, I have owned and trained several pets. Keeping animals safe and happy is my goal. My job is to keep you well informed and keep your pet excited about the time I am with them. Getting them outside for a walk, rubbing their bellies and much more are ways I connect with your animal. Whether I am with your pet for minutes, hours or days does not change the amount of love I give them. They should be briefly sad you’re gone, happy I am there, and overjoyed to see you when you return.
This is me and my girl, Mozzarella! I have 1 other dog, Bloo, and 3 cats! I’ve owned several different small animals as well as (small) aquatic animals! My favorite being Bowie, the crawfish. I was born and raised in Greenville and I’ve never known a home without some kind of animal! My whole family works or has worked in the medical field, but I steered in a different direction to work with animals. I have worked in several doggy daycares, as well as a vet office. I’m currently in school for Vet Tech, but will further my education in Canine Rehabilitation, once licensed. I love to be outdoors and go hiking with my pups but I also love to be inside doing any kind of art at all. I can’t wait to meet your fur (& non fur) babies and welcome them into the “family!”
I am definitely that person who waves at passing dogs and feels most comfortable at a gathering if the host has a pet for me to hang out with! I have been lucky that for 10 years, I had the honor of taking care of other people’s pets at a luxury boarding facility, veterinary clinic, and my own small pet sitting gig in southwest Georgia. I currently live in Greenville and spend my early mornings as an online ESL teacher. My free time is usually spent lounging with my “soul cat”, Cat, and my beloved dog, Bean. Thank you for trusting me with your non-human family members!
Hello Pet Parents! My name is Rachael and my professional background is primarily in Social Work and Administrative Support within the medical field, but my personal passion has always been working with animals. My mother was a vet tech in my younger years and I had the opportunity to learn and be exposed to a variety of domestic pets. This exposure taught me a lot about basic care and etiquette around animals and absolutely fueled my love for all creatures great and small.
As an adult, I have had my own dogs and cats- currently a 5 year old Standard Poodle and 5 year old Siamese/DSH. I have worked as a kennel tech at a boarding facility and as an assistant manager at a holistic pet food store. I have also volunteered with a couple rescue groups as a handler, assisted with transport, and assisted vetting for new adopters.
I am a self proclaimed crazy pet mom. I know the level of care I expect when trusting others with my furkids, keeping that in mind I will provide that same level of care for yours.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Hi! My name is Kim Honeycutt, and I am happy to be a part of the Connected Pets team! Originally from Hendersonville, North Carolina, I have owned and cared for animals for most of my life. I moved to Greenville in May 2021 and was lucky enough to get involved with pet care services in the area. I love working with animals, and I always aim to provide the best love and care for my clients’ pets. I do this by providing your animals with the nutritional and dietary needs they may require, allow for exercise and play time, and always give lots of love, attention and belly rubs! I am reliable and trustworthy and have a big heart when it comes to serving others and working with animals. I am excited to work with your pets, while simultaneously giving you peace of mind that your pets are safe and loved while you are away. I look forward to meeting your family!
Hello, my name is Avery and my house has always been full of pets. Right now, I have a labradoodle named River who could roll over on command at 9 weeks old! I spend my normal hours working as an electrical engineer but this is where the fun happens. I can’t wait to cuddle your fur baby.
