Thank you for visiting Lucky to be at Home Pet Care, LLC. We have been providing loving and trustworthy pet care since 2010. We understand that choosing the right person to care for your pet(s) is an important decision and we take our assignments very seriously. While you are away, “your pets are our pets”. We promise to care for your precious pets as if they were our own. Each and every visit will include love, affection and attention. We are insured and bonded for your protection and have completed a First Aid & CPR course for dogs and cats. We are committed to excellence in pet sitting and pet care with high quality standards and service. Our standards for pet sitters are the same we would expect for ourselves. Pet sitters must respect animals and be kind, caring, honest, affectionate, loving, reliable and 100% dependable. You can leave home knowing that your pets are in the capable hands of a trusted professional, because our top priority is the well-being of your pets, your home, and your peace of mind! When you are not around…we will keep them safe & sound.
When you go out of town and you can’t take your little ones with you, allow them stay in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own home, where they are safe and secure. This offers a stress-free experience for both you and your pet(s). When pets stay home, the only thing that changes is that their owners are not there for a few days. When pets go to a kennel, not only are they separated from their owners, but they also may not understand where they are and can be traumatized by the whole experience. With Lucky to be at Home Pet Care, LLC, your pets can be in their own home and stay on their schedule. While you are away, we can also take care of your plants and house and any other assistance you may need while you are out of town or away from home.
Our pets bring so much to our daily lives, yours would be lucky to be at home. We offer a variety of services for pets AND humans as follows:
|In-Home Pet Care Needs:||In-home pet sitting when you are on vacation or out of town.|
|Daily Commuter Services:||Daily visits for those who commute to and from work or those with busy schedules. This can include daily dog walking, drop by visits to administer medications/sub-q fluids, or provide a quick potty break.|

|Home Safety Checks||We can provide home safety checks for those who don’t have animals, including watering plants/lawns and alternating lights and blinds to give your home a occupied appearance.|

Before starting Lucky to be at Home Pet Care, LLC, Katherine Murphy (commonly known by her friends as “Murphy”), was a Legal Assistant for over 26 years; however, she wanted to do something different with her life. Because of her years in the legal community, she is dependable, trustworthy, loyal and confidential. Like most people in the animal profession, Murphy has always loved animals and has been a pet owner all her life. Her pets have always been members of the family. She has provided pet care for her friends & family for years before starting this new venture in 2010. She now offers that same love, care and devotion to you and your family of pets. Lucky to be at Home Pet Care, LLC is not just her business, but her life-long passion.
In addition to dogs, cats & birds, Murphy has also cared for: Chickens, Alpacas, Shetland pony, turtles, hamsters, gerbils, bearded dragons, potbellied pig and Dwarf Nigerian milk goat (which she milked twice a day!)
Murphy is currently owned by: Haunzel aka Beads (8 yr old German Shorthaired Pointer) and an aquarium of fish. She most tragically lost her beloved, best friend Sasha (ACD/Border mix) (2008 – 2020), and her other babies gone to the Rainbow Bridge, but of course, NEVER forgotten are: Mishka “The Mascot” (Border/Aussie) (1995 – 2012), Kazera (DSH) (1984 – 2002), Zina a/k/a The Red Rocket (2000 – 2016) (who competed in the Buda Wiener Dog Races for 6 years) and her talking, 20+ yr. old cockatiel, Shorty (2011). Murphy understands, first-hand, the needs of pet owners when going out of town. It’s hard with one or two animals, but especially challenging when you have a variety of pets. Like most pet owners, Murphy loves and cares for her fur-babies as she would for human children. Murphy completely understands the needs of geriatric pets as well. Review what some owners are saying on the Testimonials page. To further expand her knowledge of dogs, Murphy completed and passed the Internship/Tutor program at The Canine Center for Training & Behavior in Austin and is a Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS). She continues to enhance her knowledge, experience, and education of animals of all kinds.
