Hi! I’m Courtney and I am very excited to be joining the team here at Pawsitive Purfection! I am a veterinary technician student and an active volunteer with a local rescue, The Cat Shack. I have six cats of my own, and I foster cats and kittens as well in order to help them meet their forever families. I grew up in Hellertown & I attended college at Cedar Crest College. I also work at a local vet as a veterinary assistant. I adore cats, but I have a love for most animals, especially dogs. Gymnastics, ballet, and swimming are my favorite hobbies, as well as watching my favorite tv shows—Dance moms, Big Bang Theory, and Last Man Standing. I love meeting new pets, and it is really what drew me to this position!

I’m Daniel and I’ve been a part of the Pawsitive Purfection team since June 2016.  My focus has been on dog walking for clients around the Lehigh Valley.  I have a special place in my heart for dogs, including my own cattle dog puppy, Sophie.  I’ve been enjoying taking Sophie for training and sheep herding classes. One day Sophie and I hope to enter herding competitions!  My personal interests include yoga, running, and spending quality time with my pup Sophie.

My name is Kaitlyn and I joined the Pawsitive Purfection team in the summer of 2017.  I'm excited to be working with pets of all kinds and with other individuals who are passionate about the well-being of animals.  I have been an animal lover my whole life and have never lived without a pet.

I currently have two cats named Scooter and Little and a dog named Ruckus.

Berky and Rambo

My name is Berky and I've loved dogs ever since I was a little girl and currently have a 9 year old Westie named Gasper.  I'm in the process of getting my Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology from LCCC in Schnecksville to hopefully some day work at an animal clinic/hospital.  I love taking care of pets as if they're my own, so your furry 4-legged babies will always be in good hands with me!

My name is Megan and I am currently attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia for my Graphic Design degree. I absolutely love animals and take any chance I can get to care for pets. I am a dog bather and brusher at Rover MakeOver in Schnecksville, and recently have become a part of the Pawsitive Purfection family. I look forward to walking our clients and paying them some visits!

All my life I have had a tremendous love for animals, most likely because I have always had a pet.....always!  I have 1 dog, a 9 year old Shetland Sheepdog named Princess, and a 16 year cat named Sparkles - they are my babies. I'm that girl who when walking through the park, pays more attention to the dogs walking than the scenery.  I'm also that girl who most likely will greet the family pet first when entering your home.

I've been with Pawsitive Purfection for just a few short months and love it.  Knowing that I am there to take care of your babies while you are away, gives me great joy.  I do have a full-time job as a Real Estate Assistant; therefore, my nights and weekends are when you will find me sitting.

My free time is spent with my husband, we just celebrated our sixth anniversary.  We love hiking, cooking and traveling together!

I feel blessed to be part of the Pawsitive Purfection team!

Kaiti Bates

Hi! My name is Kaiti Bates, and I have been with Pawsitive Purfection for just shy of a year. I do have a full-time job as a medical receptionist so your pets would usually see me for bedtime visits. I have 3 cats; Manny, Bellman, and Stanley.  I am an animal lover in general, however; I do have a sweet spot for cats.

I grew up in rural Northwest Ohio and have had several different kinds of pets throughout the years. Cats, dogs, pigs, rats, a guinea pig and a rabbit just to name a few. Even though I am new to Pawsitive Purfection, I have experience with pet sitting for many years.

I moved to Pennsylvania from Ohio in January 2016 and am also recently married. My husband and I enjoy movies, cooking, museums and traveling together. We are also Master Gardeners although I am a bit out of practice since moving. We are both enjoying finding new things about the area, and I am happy to be a part of Pawsitive Purfection!

Hi!  My name is Arlene and I have officially come on board the Pawsitive Purfection team as of January 2017.

I was born and bred in Edinburgh, Scotland and immigrated to the states at the tender age of 4. Grew up in the West End of Allentown, graduated from Parkland High School and have officially been a resident of North Whitehall Township for the past 20 yrs.

I have been together with my best friend and husband for 29 years. Our children are two orange and white, fun and fabulous cats (Alfie & Bogo), whom we adopted from Forgotten Felines and Fidos.  An organization of which I have been an active volunteer helping with various fundraiser's over the years.

I am truly excited about being a part of this organization.  I have been a lover of animals since a very young age.  I grew up in a household that always had pets.  Whether it be our Yorkshire terriers, rabbits, cats, guinea pigs and even a hermit crab or two. In addition to my personal experience in the household with pets, I am also the GO TO PERSON, for when family and friends have their little getaways or extended day trips.

As an avid traveler, I understand the importance of having someone trustworthy, dependable and loving taking care of your "family" while you cannot be there.  And I feel very fortunate to be that person for you.

Looking forward to meeting and caring for all my new "Furry Friends".

I have always had a soft spot in my heart for animals.  I have had dogs, cats, fish and various other critters in my life. I currently do not have any pets of my own, so in 2011, I started fostering rescue dogs.  I treat them with lots of love just like they were my own. I find it very satisfying to know that I help these deserving dogs get to their forever homes.

I look forward to taking care of your furry family members.  Be assured, I will provide your pet with plenty of loving care and attention during our visits.
