Tania Ammannati, owner of Pet Nanny Service, is a member of Pet Sitters International, Pet Sitters Associates and is current in pet CPR. Throughout her life, she’s owned dogs, cats, parrots, hamsters, fish, turtles and managed a horse farm for numerous years… to say she’s an animal lover is an understatement!
Tania started Pet Nanny Service after finishing her last year at St. Petersburg College. Still unsure of which career path to follow, she knew in her heart that she needed to work with animals.
It all began the year her aunt & uncle purchased a yellow lab puppy named “Oscar.” They quickly realized how stressful it was to leave him behind every time they wanted to travel. Leaving him in a crate or unfamiliar kennel was not an option. After days of searching for an alternative, they hired their first professional pet sitter. Thrilled with their decision, they decided to call their favorite niece to share the experience and encourage her to look into this profession.
That year, Pet Sitters International was hosting a weekend conference in Orlando, Florida which she attended. By the end of the weekend she had decided to become a professional pet sitter and took the necessary steps to becoming one. Pet Nanny Service was started that year, in 1999.
Karilon Kilpatrick, part-time pet sitter, joined Pet Nanny Service in the spring of 2018. She has a soft spot for both dogs and cats and loves all animals, wildlife and nature. Karilon has worked in the pet industry since 2001. She has been a foster mom for many cats and kittens. From 2005-2012, she owned and operated her own pet sitting business in North Central Florida. She has cared for many household pets, in addition to, a wide variety of farm animals, exotic birds and reptiles. Through the years, she has owned many cats, several Chihuahua’s and a Burmese Mountain dog mix. Presently, she has two cats, Moonshadow aka TT, a cream color male tabby and Addie, a brown female tabby. Karilon loves to spoil her cats and looks forward to spoiling all of the pets in her care as a team member of Pet Nanny Service.
Cindy Bartz, responsible for overnight pet care, joined Pet Nanny Service in the fall of 2018. She grew up on a farm with many animals, including dogs, cats, horses, cows and chickens. Her dad knew a great deal about how to handle animals in a loving, caring way. She grew up watching and learning from him.
In her free time you will find Cindy in the woods hiking, biking and practicing yoga.
