Hi there!  My name is Amanda Yourse and I own and operate Amanda’s Paw Pals, LLC.   First off, I am Pet First Aid certified, Bonded and insured.  I have been caring for the pets in Haddam, Higganum, Portland, Middletown and East Haddam since 2003 but pets have always been a part of my life story.  I have written a few blog posts about my “story” ( but the summary is this—I love animals and I love, love, love being the best pet sitter you will ever have!  Please visit us on for some reviews and some really great pictures of the stars of Amanda’s Paw Pals!

Amanda’s Paw Pals, LLC. consists of me as the main sitter, and a few backup pet sitters.  My main backup sitter is Mary Lorenc.  Mary is Pet First Aid certified and she is also the office manager.  Oh, and all backup pet sitters (including Mary!) are bonded and insured as well.  If someone other than me needs to care for your fur-friends, you will be the first to know!  Mostly, though, it will be Amanda 🙂
