About the Owner
My name is Kat Fitzsimmons, the owner of Pampered Petz.
I have a Master’s degree in Business from Drexel University, but after working in the corporate world for many years, I found myself yearning for something more. So, I decided to follow my true passion, working with animals! I have always felt such a strong connection to animals for as long as I can remember.
In 2009, I opened Pampered Petz to make my dream a reality. We pride ourselves on the long-term relationships we form with our clients giving them peace of mind that their furry family members are receiving the best care possible. My husband, Hans, and I live in Gilbertsville with two sons, cats Teddy and Chloe, and our dog, Bella. Hans left his job in 2011 to work for Pampered Petz full-time and has never looked back. He has experience with a variety of animals from cats and dogs to ferrets and loves being able to be outside everyday.

Hello there my name is Megan! I live in Pottstown/Boyertown, PA. I’m a big animal lover as I’ve always had animals growing up from reptiles to cute elderly dogs. Right now, I have an amazing nine year old dog name Bandit. When I’m not pet sitting, I’m usually going to school for my art major. I’m always sculpting or drawing pieces for myself or family and friends. I love being around animals no matter if they are cats, dogs, or fishes. It has always been a dream of mind to work with animals. I love playing with them, going on walks, or just watching them doing their own thing and seeing their personality bloom. I cant wait to meet your adorable animals and getting to hang out with them! Ill make sure to give them the love and attention they care for just like how you do.
Hi my name is Tina. I live in Upper Pottsgrove with my husband, my son, my mother, three cats, one bird, three dogs, and a horse. I enjoy doing confirmation, rally and obedience with my two dobermans. I love all animals and my animals are part of the family and of course spoiled. I feel this is the perfect job for me since I love animals and meeting new people and their pets. Rest assured I will give your fur babies lots of love and attention when your away.
My name is Jacque and I currently live in Limerick with my husband, 12-year-old son, and two cats: Ketchup & Mayo (my son named them). I have had many other pets throughout my life including dogs, a goat, rats, turtles, fish, ducks, and also cared for my brother’s snake once upon a time. As a child, I grew up having neighbors with cows and horses. I love to read, bike on local trails, explore the greater Philly area with my family & friends, cook, and bake. I absolutely love animals and I’m excited to meet and care for your pets as though they are my own.
Hi! My name is Nicole. I live in Spring City, PA with my husband/kids and two fur-babies, Graham and Sallie, who are both rescues. I have had animals my whole life. Before my two pups now, I had Sammy (dog) and Jax (cat), who both lived 17 years before crossing the rainbow bridge. I have also previously fostered many rescue dogs until they found their furever home. I love all animals and after using Pampered Petz myself, I thought what better job than to give comfort to people like me that their pets are in loving hands when they are unable to be home.
My name is Sophia and I live in Limerick with my 3 dogs, Tucker, Olly, and Lucy, and my 2 cats, Cloud and Binx. I always grew up with pets in the house whether it’s dogs, cats, fish, or reptiles. To me, they are family and I couldn’t imagine life without them. I am very excited to get to know you and your furry friends!
Hello, I’m Rachel. I live in South Coventry with my husband and 3 children. I love being around animals so I cant think of what better way to spend my time then taking care of your pets. Its truly a rewarding job, also saves my husband from having a house over flowing with animals. We have raised Great Danes for the the last 12yrs and I’m very passionate about animals with special needs. We also currently have a bunny, multiple fish tanks and koi pond. But have had many years experience with all types of animals. When Im not pet sitting I can be found at some type of sporting event for my kids or enjoying the outdoors. I’d love to meet your pet and give them the care they deserve when your away from home.
Hello! My name is Kim and I live in Phoenixville. Like every staff member of Pampered Petz, I absolutely adore all animals! Throughout my life, my pets weren’t just pets, they were and are the animals that brought me joy, comfort and respect for all living creatures. I love to nurture animals, and they nurture me! I never had the chance to have children, so animals played a big part in my life. Presently, I live with an ornery but well loved cat that I rescued. She (Tilly) was extremely timid and scared of all human contact. Today, she can usually be found on my lap or cuddling with me on the couch. Besides my cat, I have had hamsters, a guinea pig, a rabbit and have raised two wonderful dogs who have sadly passed after a full life of love and adoration. Furthermore, I am passionate about horses and have ridden and cared for any horse I could. I am very excited to meet all of my clients and care for, play with and provide love for your fur babies as if they were my own.
Hi! My name is Nicole and I live in Bechtelsville. I am married, have 3 kids, and have 5 loving rescue dogs. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside with my family and dogs and riding horses. I love animals, so I am always looking for ways to be around them. What better way than to work for a company where my job is to take care of animals? I love having the ability to make families feel at peace, knowing their fur babies are being loved and taken care of while they are away from home. I personally know how hard it is to leave them, but knowing they are in good hands makes all the difference in the world! The best part of my job is the lasting relationships I make with the families who welcome me into their homes to care for their pets. I can honestly say that I do have the best job!
Hello my name is Jessi and I live in Boyertown with my husband and our 4 kids, 4 cats, our dog Cedar as well as numerous chickens and ducks. I have had furry and feathered animals around me since birth and I can’t imagine a life without them. I grew up in the country with a whole host of animals that I proclaimed to be my best friends. My heart for them has never changed and over the years I have rescued many animals both wild and domestic (either from shelters or those that have just randomly appeared on my doorstep). My husband and I have always had pets in our home since before we were even married. We believe that they have added so much to our family as a whole because there are SO MANY life lessons to be gained from these special family members. I am energetic and passionate about animals and truly care about their health and well-being. I look forward to being able to care for your little buddies like I would want someone to care for mine and genuinely appreciate the opportunity to do so!
