Linda with Zeke 3-27-19

I'm Linda and I'm excited to be a part of the Pawsitive Purfection team!  I've always loved spending time with animals, so when my girlfriend needed help at her doggie daycare, I asked her if I could help. Once I started that, I knew I wanted to do more working and playing with animals. I've been a therapy dog handler for the last 5 years; I enjoy spending my Saturday afternoons taking the dogs to a nursing home to visit the residents. I'm the mom of a 16 year old kitty that I've had since she was 3 days old.  I'm looking forward to spending quality time with your pets and giving them the attention they deserve!

My family has rescued many cats and dogs over the years. When I moved to the Lehigh Valley, I continued this practice as a volunteer at several area shelters and now as a professional pet sitter/dog walker. Recently, I received training in Pet CPR and First Aid.

Maureen J.

Maureen and Copper

Hi, I’m Maureen. As a life long animal companion and advocate, I am delighted to have been invited to join the dedicated team at Pawsitive Purfection. Like many of the other members of this great team, I am a happy client transitioned to care taker.

When I am visiting our pet clients, there is no place else I’d rather be. Their sweet faces and fun spirits are the perfect escape and complement to time spent in the office of my home based web design business. I have been privileged to journey with 3 large iguanas, 4 cats and 5 dogs from their youth through elder and end care, loving every moment of our time together. I am currently mom to Copper, a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. As part of my training with Pawsitive Purfection, I have been certified in pet CPR and first aid. It’s an honor to share the same loving care with your four legged family members as I do my own.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, running and training in equestrian disciplines.

Megan & Cooper

My name is Megan and I recently graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia with 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 became a part of the Pawsitive Purfection family in the summer of 2017. I look forward to walking our clients and paying them some visits!

Melissa Y.

Melissa Yenkevich

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 9.5 year old Shetland Sheepdog named Princess, and a 18 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 since the summer of 2016 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 seventh 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 since 2016.  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. Although I started with Pawsitive Purfection in the spring of 2016, I have had many years of experience with pet sitting prior to my move to PA.

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!

Crystale & Michael K.



Our names are Crystale and Michael.  Both of us have been with Pawsitive Purfection since September 2018.  We have been married for 26 years, both are animal lovers, and have shared our lives with nine cats throughout that time. Growing up on a farm, I was surrounded by cats and dogs and have also had bunnies and guinea pigs.  Michael has rescued most of our pets caring for and taming them to be part of our home.  I cannot imagine a time in my life when I wouldn't have an animal in my life.

Michaela B.

My name is Michaela and I joined the Pawsitive Purfection team in the summer of 2019.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences and I currently work in a veterinary office as a receptionist and am training to be a Veterinary Technician.  As someone who has chosen the path of helping animals, I have a different mindset when it comes to taking care of pets than the average person.  I can pick up on problems that not everyone would notice.

I am the proud mom of a Boston Terrier/Pug mix and a chinchilla.
