“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 Haynes, Owner

Meet Our Team



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!)



Pet Sitter & Dog Walker

Maddie has a passion for caring for all species of animals. She is currently in Vet Tech school, and while she has a love for dogs and cats, she really loves the idea of taking care of exotics. Because of this, she volunteers at the Brevard Zoo making animal diets in the commissary and helping out in the Petting Zone. Maddie’s goal is to be a Veterinary Technician in a zoo or practice specializing in primates and hoof stock! At home she has a rescued cat named Jax, a rescued Lab/Beagle mix named Daisy, and a Shih Tzu named Wilson. Having a Dad in the Air Force, Maddie has been all over the world so she is always up for meeting new people and going on new adventures! On her off days, she enjoys being outside, traveling, and spending time with family. She has a never-ending passion and love for animals and cant wait to take care of your pet while you’re away!
