Kim's Critter Care Pet Sitting & Dog Walking Services

We recently added this company to the Business Directory section, and with so many dog owners in our riverfront neighborhoods I thought it would be helpful to share further.

In addition to pet sitting in clients' homes, Kim Rinde offers dog walking, thus the name Kim's Critter Care Pet Sitting & Dog Walking Services.

Per Kim, "Caring for pets is my passion. I really enjoy making animals happy and safe, both professionally and in my personal life. I have fostered dogs for several different dog rescues in the past and I still volunteer to help them out when I can. It is very satisfying to bring a puppy-mill dog into your home and watch it go from being a scared, frightened dog who trusts no one to a happy, healthy dog who knows that it can trust humans once again."

She is bonded and insured through Pet Sitters Associates LLC, belongs to the Association of Professional United Pet Sitters, is certified in pet first aid and is CPR by the American Red Cross. References available upon request.

You can reach Kim Rinde at 612-991-3758 or, and on the Web and Facebook.

Kim provided this additional background: "I became a professional pet sitter after I realized that there wasn't a business in my immediate area that provided professional and reliable care for people who owned parrots. At the time, I owned parrots (still do) and I never went out of town on vacation because I had no one that I trust to care for my birds and my home.

I started a pet sitting business with my friend and, at first, we specialized in taking care of parrots only. However, people began calling us to see if we offered pet sitting services for other types of animals as well, and so we expanded our business to include all types of pets. In 2011, I went into business by myself & started Kim's Critter Care. I now offer pet sitting and dog walking services to residents in the central riverfront and NE neighborhood of Minneapolis."
