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.
I am a cat mom to my fur babies, Callie and Skye. I absolutely love animals and have had dogs and other pets my whole life. I work in law enforcement and love seeing and playing with the different animals during my job. I recently moved from Indiana and miss my dogs back home, so I love being able to spend time and playing with any dog I can. I look forward to meeting your pets and giving them attention while you are away. I hope I can give you peace of mind that your fur babies are in good hands while I'm there.
From one pet lover to another, I think at times I love animals more than people! Don’t tell my teenagers though! I have 2 of them (13 & 15), a loving husband, and 2 of the most awesome dogs! Full disclosure...I’m a foster FAILURE, our sweet Sadie ( a deaf cocker spaniel) was only supposed to stay 2 weeks...it’s been 3 years. With that in mind, I hope to spoil your pets while you’re away, whether it’s just for the day or a week. Belly rubs and snuggles are in their future.
As a registered nurse I’ve been caring for humans for 20 years, and I can’t wait to care for your furry family.
Animals find us exactly when we need them and fill our lives with joy. Here I am with my dog Jackson in the St. Croix airport - unexpectedly bringing him home from a beach where he found me over Christmas vacation. My weekdays are filled with teaching middle school robotics classes which, as you can imagine, keep me very busy! When I’m not working you can find me hiking with my husband Eric and our two amazing pups (one sweet golden retriever and one crazy potcake), gardening, knitting, practicing yoga, traveling, or doing just about anything outside. I am originally from Pennsylvania. My husband and I along with our four fur kids (we have two kitties too!) moved to Greenville in the fall because we wanted to live where we can spend more time outside without freezing. I love getting to know animals’ funny personalities and unique, charming characteristics. I can’t wait to spend some time with your fur babies - I’m guaranteed to fall in love with them.
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!
My name is Mathew Holmes. I am from Sacramento, CA and have been in Greenville for 10 years in September. My wife and I are currently raising two pups (Sherlock and Lexi). Sherlock is a retriever mix and Lexi is a shepherd mix. I grew up with a golden retriever, which is my favorite breed. We love to play and cuddle with our pups. I treat each pet with the love and affection that I would treat my own. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!
