Get to Know Us

How it all Started

After working in the corporate world for many years, I found that wasn't my true calling. I realized I really wanted to do something that I was passionate about. My love of animals and my desire to provide them with the care they deserve inspired me to leave my corporate job and become a professional pet sitter. I founded Kimberly's Kritter Care in 2016, and have been providing North Charleston and surrounding areas with dependable, knowledgable, and loving pet care services ever since. In my spare time I love to hang out with my fur family and my partner, Josh. I also enjoy volunteering at local animal shelters and fostering kittens.


I am a proud mom to four rescues: a black lab mix named Buddy, a plott hound mix named Molly, a tuxedo cat named Callie, and a rambunctious tabby cat named Charlie!


At Kimberly's Kritter Care, we truly love animals and have years of experience working with them. We are all Pet First Aid and CPR certified. You can trust us to provide a safe, comfortable, fun, and healthy environment for your furbabies. Whether it’s taking them for walks, administering meds, coming by to feed and let them out, or providing at-home care, we’ll watch over your pets as if they were our own.

We can't wait to meet you and your furry, scaly, and feathered friends!

Sam Soule, Pet Care Specialist

Hey everyone, my name is Sam and I recently moved to Charleston from New York! Nope, not the big city, just a little small town.

I'm a huge animal lover and, unfortunately, I don't live on a farm or I'd have an actual zoo I'm sure! (Future goals!) 

I have 3 puppers - Zeke, Raine, and Bowie and a brand new kitten - Lucy. They are all so unique in their own little ways and bring such joy to my life. 

I am pet first aid and CPR certified and have experience administering medications.

I'm very excited to become a part of this crew and look forward to meeting everyone and their fur (or scaly) babies!
