Kristin's Paws in Paradise
Professional Pet Sitting

Loving your pets just like you do in Sarasota-Manatee

While you are away you should never have to worry about your pet being loved. Kristin’s Paws in Paradise makes sure your pet is loved, dined, played with and cared for in a familiar place — your home!

Providing the highest standard in professional pet sitting, we enjoy giving regular updates to remind you of your precious pet’s wellbeing.

Kristin’s Paws in Paradise provides love and care to your dogs, cats, fish, birds, reptiles and exotics. We also offer reliable home and property management services while you are away.

In addition, we maintain that it is essential for the safety and security of your pets and your home that we only use unmarked vehicles. Cars in your driveway emblazoned with “pet sitting” advertising jump right out at the bad guys.

A Lifelong Animal Lover

Kristin Tatangelo has a passion for professional pet sitting, catering to pets and their families in Manatee and Sarasota counties for the past 15 years. Kristin is pet emergency care certified and has 10 years experience as a veterinary assistant at Westbay Animal Hospital in Bradenton.

Kristin strongly believes in quality over quantity. In keeping with this philosophy, she limits her number of clients to guarantee the greatest love and care for each pet.

Kristin employs an exclusive group of fellow professional pet sitters. These consist only of family members, including her mom, Kim Fournier, and Kristin's husband, Wade Tatangelo, as well as several close friends Kristin worked with at Westbay Animal Hospital. This is also to guarantee the greatest love and care for each pet.

One of Kristin’s many passions is serving on the board of trustees for Bailey’s Buddies. It’s a non-profit charitable pet foundation and trust dedicated to assisting financially challenged canine owners faced with the burden placed on them when their dog is diagnosed with cancer.

Kristin, who has been a volunteer for Mote Marine's Dolphin and Whale Hospital and Animal Care Team, is also a volunteer/foster mom for the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida. She adopted her chocolate lab Georgee from the rescue group. Another rescue chocolate lab Dunkin soon joined Georgee. The youngest member of the Tatangelo family followed, two-year-old French bulldog rescue Tucker.
