About The Owner…

My name is Karen Orozco and I am the Owner of Wags Away. I have been pet sitting since the 1990s, and I love it! I have always had a pet growing up, so when I moved out and my roommates would not allow pets, I had to find a way to fill the void in my life.

I was asked by a neighbor to watch her dogs while she went away, and fell in love with pet sitting. I enjoyed staying at peoples houses and caring for their pets. My friend who hired me encouraged me to start a business caring for pets. She offered to help me by telling her clients. She did and it started to take off. 

I have been in management since I was 18. I learned so much from it that I applied it to my business.

Wags Away specializes in overnight pet sitting, house sitting, pet sitting visits, dog sitting, and cat sitting.

About Wags Away…

Why take your pets to a boarding facility when they can stay in their own home. We will provide lots of tender loving care and they will be happy. We will bring in your mail, take out the trash, water your plants and turn lights on so everyone will know someone is home.

Wags Away was established in 2005. But, I (Karen) have been pet sitting since the 1990s. I started by watching pets for neighbors. My service slowly grew into a business. Thanks to all the people that helped me.
