We're more than just a dog walking & pet sitting company. 

We treat each animal as we would our own. We recognize that we are not only serving pets, but their parents, too! We know that honesty, communication, and a mutual understanding are the key to providing excellent customer service and pet care. 

We know that supporting each other and working as a team helps things run smoothly and keeps us loving what we do! 

Most importantly, we all LOVE animals. But we're sure you'll be able to tell when you meet us in person. 


Alissa and Kristen

PhilaPets Owners

Kristen and Alissa have called Philadelphia home since 2010.  They have 3 adorable rescue pups named Zoey, Ziggy, and Reesie.  The five of them enjoy exploring the city, hiking in the woods, and lots and lots of couch cuddles.  

Alissa has been a Pet Care Specialist for PhilaPets since 2011, and has probably met YOUR pet at least once while out on a walk!  She loves being outside, biking around the city, and spending time with your adorable pets.  When they are not hanging out with their dogs, Kristen and Alissa enjoy traveling, biking, brewing beer, kayaking, and playing games. 

Kristen and Alissa have been the proud owners of PhilaPets since 2017 and look forward to meeting you and spoiling your pets while you’re away!

Peyton is originally from Portland, OR. She moved to Philadelphia recently with her two furry buddies- Nini the rabbit and Hugo the cat!  When she isn't hanging out with those two knuckleheads, Peyton likes to garden, ride her bike, read comics and work on craft projects.

She loves exploring Philadelphia with all the awesome dogs she has met while dog walking for PhilaPets!

Teresa was born and raised in the Bronx, but loves living in Philadelphia! Teresa has always been an animal lover and grew up surrounded by dogs. Last year, she finally got a cat of her own and named him Scout. Scout loves spending time with her humans, knocking over glasses, and most of all, eating popcorn.

Teresa spends her free time listening to music, cooking new recipes, and hanging out with friends. Teresa loves her job at PhilaPets because it allows her to explore the city and meet lots of cute animals every day!

Cerissa is originally from Michigan, but have lived in Philadelphia for 10 years. She grew up surrounded by animals, both at home and on her grandparent's farm. She now has one dog, a golden retriever-boxer mix named Cooper.

Cerissa is currently a doctoral student at Thomas Jefferson University, studying to become an Occupational Therapist. She would love to one day become involved with animal-assisted therapy. When she is not studying, she enjoys dog walking, reading, crafting, playing and listening to music, and having outdoor adventures with her dog.

She looks forward to meeting you and your pets! 


Pet Care Specialist

Clara is a dog lover originally from California who came to Philly to study mechanical engineering at Drexel University. She loves exploring the city during dog walks and would probably be voted most likely to run over-time on a dog walk because of losing track of time while adventuring.  

She loves caring for animals and getting to meet so many cute PhilaPets around the city! One of her life goals is to train her own dog to do wilderness search and rescue work.



Pet Care Specialist

Breanna is a photography major at UArts in Philly! In her free time, she likes to walk dogs and, of course, take photos. She also loves reading and movies, hiking, kayaking, and just anything that involves being outdoors. She has grown up with animals since she was little and currently has two dogs (a German Shepherd mix and a Border Collie mix) and a cat of her own.

She feels fortunate to have animals be such a huge part of her life, and couldn’t imagine spending a day without them!
