Hi there! I'm April Curtis.


As an animal lover and pet parent, I understand that our animals are a big part of our families. I also understand the importance of finding a pet sitter you can trust.  I founded April’s Pet Care to provide reliable and loving pet care from a fully insured and bonded professional.  Whether you are working late or on vacation, I offer pet sitting and dog walking services that are tailored to the needs of your pets.


When your pet is in my care, it’s as if they are my own. Your peace of mind is important, so I like to communicate with you while you are away if you would like - be it via text messages, photos or emails - just to let you know how your “kids” are doing.


April is an Arizona native living in Scottsdale with her partner, rescued dog Chapo (pictured) and two rescued cats, Georgia and Sampson.

April's Pet Care

We're there when you can't be.

Hello! I'm Karen Bradford.



My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion!


Over the years, friends and family have entrusted their pets in my care because they trusted my abilities and knew that I would treat their pets as I would my own. Spending my days with animals is the ultimate job. Kinda hard to even call it a “job.” Who can resist wags and purrs, wet kisses and lap naps? Certainly not me.


I grew up in Scottsdale where I currently live with my husband, two children and our dog Scruffy (pictured).
