A Note from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)

"Karen took over and helped the ASPCA's medical department evolve into what it is today. Karen has always put 200% into every task she has taken on. She is thorough, diligent, and extremely hard working.... Her knowledge of veterinary medicine...is evident in her excellent work.... she has effectively organized a very fluid staff to care for a large population of animals with special medical and behavioral needs.... Karen's absence will be felt." — Dr. Jennifer Lander, ASPCA Adoptions Center Director of Medicine, 2008

Notes from Satisfied Pet Owners

"We came to San Diego 3 1/2 years ago with our lab rescue named Nike. Nike is a very sweet, loving and loyal boy, but clearly, he had a rough beginning and to this day is still very shy and afraid of people. I found Divine Pet Care® on the Internet and really loved all the testimonials, so we decided to give Karen a try and a very special bond was born. Karen was amazing with Nike and Nike warmed up to her very quickly. As soon as you meet Karen you know she's a warm, generous and very caring person. Although we didn't see her much, she became a very important member of the family. I can't imagine trusting Nike with anyone else. I highly, highly recommend Divine Pet Care®!! You won't be disappointed." — Diana S, Rancho Bernardo, CA

"My wife and I have used Divine Pet Care for several years now and would never settle for anyone else. Karen and Elias are completely professional, prompt, responsive, reliable, friendly, and completely at ease with our four-legged family members. They have conscientiously followed specific instructions when our pets have had health or medication considerations, and they are extremely intuitive and knowledgable about the care of animals. Our "kids" love them. Given all of this, plus Karen's depth of experience in veterinary medicine, we could not feel more secure and at ease when we're away. Simply Divine!" —Tim B, Mira Mesa, CA

Services & Rates

The average rate for a 30 minute pet visit or dog walk in 2008 was $18 per pet and the average rate of a 12 hour pet sitting overnight, without a midday visit, was $65. You will find that as of 2022, our rates are still fair and highly competitive for a professional pet sitting and dog walking company that is highly qualified, insured, bonded, and licensed. 

All animals (species/breeds) welcome! Divine Pet Care® does not provide service to breeding facilities. Divine Pet Care® also does not engage in or support the mistreatment of any domestic or wildlife animal. You may request "ANY" service combination (e.g., a combination of 15 min and 30 min visits or walks per/day or per/wk). Please note that all visit/walk/overnight/boarding service includes photo and/or video updates via text and/or email at no extra charge [upon request as some pet parents prefer less communication while on vacation etc]. All cat visits include refreshing food and water and litterbox cleaning. No business is perfect, but we always strive to do better and provide the best service possible with integrity, dedication, and love for our Divine Pet Care® family. If you’re looking for pet care providers who are known for going above and beyond that’s us but if you're looking for perfection and enjoy barking at others, we are not for you. Life is too short and precious! Please contact Divine Pet Care® if you have any questions or concerns. We have provided service to thousands of clients over nearly 15 years and are more than happy to provide references (we have plently). Please note that we also provide additional services for seniors and people with disabilities. 


Divine Pet Care® provides uniquely qualified service at an affordable price!

Sadie AmariKaren's adopted rescue: Sadie Amari 
(Sadie Amari was adopted by a loving and long-time pet parent/client who asked us specifically to give her a forever home. Sadie Amari was abused prior to becoming a member of our family and has separation anxiety but has come a long way and is now one of the happiest dogs you will ever meet. Sadie Amari loves working with us on the road and participating in dog playgroups and going on pack walks.)
