Our Story

Space Coast Pet Services is a team of experienced and professional pet sitters and dog walkers serving the Brevard County and the Space Coast area as well as those visiting here from out of town. We are registered with the state of FL, background checked, bonded, insured & trained in Pet First Aid & CPR. All staff members get educated about dog behaviors and receive ongoing, relevant training to our industry. The business was officially established in 2017 and continues to grow to serve more and more space coast pet families and visitors each month.

What drives us to succeed is knowing we are providing the best possible care for all of our Space Coast Pet family on time, every time.

“There’s a great sense of pride in knowing that you’ve worked hard to create something from the ground up all on your own and, in the process, are able to help others. I want my children to see that hard work can pay off when you’re passionate about what you’re doing. I continually seek to learn new best practices and to keep up with current trends in the industry. I’ve had many opportunities to connect with and collaborate with other local businesses. We network with other small business owners in our communities who hold the same core professional values as we do and the end result is the best experience for you as a pet parent and the pets you love dearly.”

Melanie

Melanie

Leader of the Pack

Melanie has always loved animals – big and small. So when she was in transition from an industrial security corporate job in defense contracting, she decided to take her years of pet care experience and start a business that reflected that passion. After pet sitting casually as a hobby and becoming a pet owner, she understood the importance of having professional and personalized pet care. With the lack of full time, registered and qualified services in the area, she decided to fill the need for qualified, trained, loving professional home pet care providers in Brevard County.

After traveling the world as a ‘military brat’, Melanie settled in Brevard County in 2013. She is the mother of 2 amazing children and 2 adorable pups. She volunteers at her children’s elementary school, Hidden Acres Rescue for Thoroughbreds (HART) and served on the Committee of her son’s Cub Scout Pack. When not being a Mom Taxi between hockey practices, Cub Scouts, fire stations, horse riding lessons and various school activities, she enjoys reading, swimming, hiking in the mountains and traveling. (And naps!)

April was born and raised in England to a military family and always had an affinity for animals since she was a little girl. But it wasn’t until after serving time in the military that she set out on a path to get her Associates Degrees in Zookeeping and Veterinary Technology. Her favorite experience in this field is bonding with each pet and being a part of the Space Coast Pet Services team allows her to do that. When not at work, April enjoys spending time with her family to include her 2 cats; Leo and Merlin, and 2 dogs; Biggie and Achilles.
