About Us

about_profileMy name is Trina Miller Bauer and I’m the owner/manager of Pet Pals plus. Growing up in State College I always knew I wanted to work with animals. I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a B.A. in Animal Behavior. Shortly after college, I founded Pet Pals plus and have been pet sitting ever since! I’ve been caring for pets for almost 20 years and I still tell people I have the world’s best job!

I’ve been a pet owner all my life. My husband and I have shared our home with a menagerie of animals. From cats to dogs, guinea pigs to hamsters, mice and fish, they all have a special place in our hearts. Here I am with my golden retriever Izzy. Recently, we adopted a rescue puppy, Kita, who fills our live with daily adventures!

The staff

Each sitter has her own story, but like me, each of them loves animals. Like you, they are pet owners too. Some have cats, some have dogs, some have dogs, cats and many other critters! Each sitter is carefully screened and fully-trained before working for Pet Pals plus.
