Space Coast Pet Services is a team of experienced and professional pet sitters and dog walkers serving Brevard County, Florida and the Space Coast area as well as those visiting here from out of town. Our company is registered with the state of FL and every team member has successfully completed a federal background check (with driving records), is bonded and insured & completed in-depth training in Pet First Aid & CPR. All staff members get educated about pet 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.”

Leader of the Pack
Melanie has always loved animals – big and small. When she was in transition from an industrial security corporate job in defense contracting at Cape Canaveral AFS, 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 parent, she understood the importance of having professional and personalized pet care. With the lack of full-time, registered and insured in-home 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 in a military family, Melanie obtained her BA in Sociology and Criminal Justice from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She settled in Brevard County in 2013. She is the mother of 2 amazing children and 2 adorable pups. She is an active volunteer in the community and enjoys reading, swimming, hiking in the mountains, traveling and naps.
Lead Pet Sitter & Dog Walker
Kris has always loved animals of all types. Throughout her life, she and her family had many pets – from dogs and cats to ferrets and lizards. She now has two rescued fur-babies; Jackson, a super-sweet, smart 45lb beagle-mix and Riley, who at 110lbs, cannot be classified as anything other than a huge puddle of doggie love!
Kris enjoys playing with her pups and instantly falls in love with any others she encounters. Her hobbies include fishing and kayaking with her husband, learning new things and crafting. She enjoys reading, traveling and swimming.
Her passion for animals made her decide to follow her calling and do what she loves to do the most; care for, play with and love animals! She can’t wait for the opportunity to meet and care for yours, in whatever form they may be!
Pet Sitter & Dog Walker
Morgan is originally from a town called West Deptford, New Jersey about 15 minutes outside of Philadelphia. She moved to Florida to earn her Masters in Biological Oceanography at the Florida Institute of Technology. Ever since Morgan was little, she has loved all types of animals. She has been riding horses since age 8 and has cared for the other animals on the farm as well. There are goats, chickens, cats, and dogs that she has cared for all at one time! Growing up, she had a Rottweiler, hermit crabs, fish, a rabbit, fostered a kitten, and owned a horse. After graduation, Morgan hopes to have her own farm to help as many animals as she can have a safe home. She looks forward to meeting and caring for your pets!
