Hello pet parent! My name is Kate and I'm an animal lover who currently studies theatre at NYU Tisch. I'm originally from San Diego, California where I frequent the dog parks and beaches with my favorite family member, Buddy. He's a wonderful Labrador who I miss dearly when I am here studying. I love indulging in walks around the city and would love to spend that time taking care of your fluffy companion.
