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 updates and mobile apps 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 (Poppy 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 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!
Howl you doin’? My name is Alycia, and I am so pawssionate about animals! I have always wanted to have a career where I work with animals. In 2017, I turned that dream into a reality. I am currently a licensed veterinary technologist at an animal hospital in Greenville. I have a Beagle mix named Benning! We love to spend our free time outdoors, and then end our day with the occasional pup cup! “My kids have paws”, and I am looking forward to providing care for your fur babies like my own. It is the leash I can do!
This is me and my dog Baby. I rescued her in 2018 and we have been together since. I am originally from Bluffton, SC and grew up with three cats and a snake. I love being around animals and am excited to meet yours!
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.
Hi, my name is Jennifer. My husband and I have lived in Greer for 22 years. We have 2 wonderful children, 2 dogs, and 3 cats. We have a small zoo at our house. Professionally I have retired from my job at Target where I was a supervisor for 25 years. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!
Hello, my name is Krystle. This is me and my 10 year old Mini Schnauzer named Scrappy Doo. We've been living in Greenville for 2 years now and absolutely love mini hikes and dog parks here. I also occasionally work on my aunt’s farm in Georgia. There I'm doing everything from cleaning after laughing donkeys to happily jumping around with baby sheep. I look forward to providing great care for your fur babies!
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!”
Hi! My name is Teila, I moved to the Greenville area from Upstate NY and I am super thankful to be here! I love being able to enjoy the outdoors more often, and not be freezing! This is my dog Windsor :) He’s an amazing part of our family. I have a large family of humans, and our pup and kitten. Of course we have a few fish as well. I was an Elementary Art teacher in NY and really enjoy the Artistic side of life. I love animals as well. I consider our pets to be family and treat them as such. I have experience with many different animals, and can’t wait to give your fur babies the love and attention they deserve while you’re away!
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! I live in Simpsonville with my husband and two human kids; as well as this handsome photo bomber, Romeo (Great Dane). He is the biggest of our fur babies by size and by heart. Our other fur babies include Shae (Staffie), Bella (Chihuahua) and Bigfoot (tuxedo cat). I have been passionate about animals all my life and have cared for many different fur babies over the years. I'm the one that will pull over any time I see a stray/lost pet to call their owner and make sure they are safe because that is what I would want someone to do if my fur babies ever happen to get loose. I promise to always love and care for your fur babies as I do my own.
Hello, my name is Amanda. I was born and raised in the Chicago, Illinois. I recently moved to Simpsonville and absolutely love it. I have loved all things dogs since I can remember, especially my 3 dogs. I have been grooming for the past 14yrs and I would not change what I do every day for anything. I am so happy to have come across Connected Pets and be a member of the team. I look forward to meeting all your adorable furry animals!
My name is Jana Achilles and I have been living in Greenville with my family for over five years now. My whole life I have always been surrounded by dogs and cats, geckos and fishes. All of our dogs and cats were rescued and it was always fascinating to watch their change in mind and behavior during the first couple of months and even years. Now we are proud parents of Yoda, a rescue Carolina Shepherd. I used to work as a Microbiologist; however, after spending 10 years in a lab, I decided it’s time for a change. I am absolutely fascinated by the way dogs are communicating with each other and with us. There is nothing better than caring for, communicating, and playing or running around with your furry friend!
Hi! My name is Gina and I am so excited to meet your fur babies. I’ve been a groomer for several years, but before that, I worked for some Doggy Day Cares too. Once I tried grooming, I never looked back! This job is one of the most rewarding in the world. From the happy faces on clients when they see their dogs, to the sloppy kisses I get from the dogs. Every second I get to spend with your dog is priceless and I’m so lucky to have amazing clients who trust me to take care of their dog’s appearance and well being!
