Maureen McCarthy

(Owner/Animal Lover)

My name is Maureen McCarthy. I moved to Indian Trail NC in July 2006 with my husband  (a retired NYC Police Officer) and my beautiful daughter.  I have 3 wonderful dogs and 2 goldfish.  I would have cats, however, my husband is allergic to them.  So, I do get to spend some time loving up on the kitties when my clients have cats for me to care for.  I have always had a love for animals for as long as I can remember.

When I was a child I brought home every stray that I found, and my mom would always tell me “Maureen, you cannot save them all”  In 1980 I started a summer job working in a dog grooming shop and ended up working there for 8 years.  I then moved on to open my own grooming shop.  I have worked with dogs and cats either grooming or pet sitting since 1980.

When I moved to NC in 2006 I started Love and Kisses Pet Sitting.  I had to fly to NY for a wedding and had no one to care for my dog so I boarded him ( I would never board my dog again).  He came home with no bark and a scratched up and bloody nose ( from trying to get out of the cage).  I said I don’t want any other dog to have to go through that and that is why I started my pet sitting/dog walking business.  I was always told to follow my heart and so I did!!!  My promise to you is that I will care for your pets as I would want mine cared for.
