My name is Kat Gardner. I am the owner and founder of Kat's Dogs & More . Since I was a little girl I knew I wanted to work with animals. I started rescuing and volunteering at a young age, and have been a commited guardian, lover, fosterer, advocate, and rescuer of animals my entire life. I started as a veterinary technician in 2004 and fell in love with it.  In 2013 I established my business where I continue to provide medical care for animals. I am bonded, insured, and have my certifications in CPR, First Aid, and Pet Sitting through Pet Sitters International. I strive to be as environmetally concious and eco friendly as possible by using compostable waste bags for each dog walk. 
In my spare time I continue to advocate for all animals around the world. My goal is to help every domestic animal find their loving home, save all wildlife, and help keep our planet healthy.

  4. "The Best!"
    Our precious Riley is 8 years old and too timid for a kennel. He loved Kat the minute he met her. She was wonderful to our pets and respectful of our home. She made our vacation more pleasant knowing we had capable Kat in charge. She is the best!
