Petit Pet Care, LLC :: Pet Sitting and Dog Walking :: New Orleans, LA



Petit Pet Care owner Christy Hackenberg:

Christy Hackenbegr, Owener Petit Pet CareAll my life I have had pets, starting with Sandy, a cat my mother adopted from the Humane Society when I was 2. Over the years I’ve had cats, dogs, birds, mice, fish, a turtle and a rabbit. My current “fur family” consists of 3 cats: Harold, Gonzo and Scout. A house feels empty to me without critters around.

I decided to pursue my dream of working with animals and enrolled in Delgado Community College to apply for their Veterinary Tech Program. While pet sitting for a friend when she went out of town for Mardi Gras, I thought that pet sitting would be a great way to work with animals while I pursue my degree and started Petit Pet Care in 2012. I also worked at Zeus' Place, a grooming/boarding company in Uptown New Orleans, where I gained valuable experience in animal handling, medication administration and other animal care responsibilities.

Petit Pet Care started to grow and I decided to put Vet Tech training to the side. I continued working at Zeus' Place until November 2013 when I could no longer juggle my schedule there with my pet sitting appointments. I also volunteer with the Louisiana SPCA and take photos of animals for adoption. Recently I rejoined the team at Zeus' Place/Zeus' Rescues when they opened a second location. I continue to serve my existing clients as I move towards dedicating more time to pet photography. Stay tuned for more information!

I love animals and I love to care for, play with, love on and pamper pets. I’m also an avid gardener, so I can keep your plants and garden healthy while you are out of town. Photography is another of my hobbies, so I’ll send you photos of your pet(s) while you are away.

I will be the primary caretaker of your pets and home but I do have back-ups: my husband Greg is my business partner; my part-time helper, Meredith, who we trust with our own kitties when we go out of town; and Chanell my marketing and administrative assitant. This is my career and I take it seriously, it's not a hobby. I am very responsible, reliable, professional and discrete. But you don't have to take my word for it. Need references? Just ask. I've got plenty. I want you to know whom you're leaving your babies with while you're gone. Feel free to browse the Testimonials & Clients page.
