Pet Porter Pals also transports pets from their home directly to seniors residing in assisted living for regularly scheduled one-on-one visits.


These aren’t just any ordinary pets, but pets that the seniors already have a very special bond with – whether the pet originally belonged to them and is now being cared for by relatives or friends, or just a particular pet that they’re crazy about!

Love Notes from Our Clients

We wish to highly recommend Pet Porter Pals service. Carmel Mims provided excellent care of our mother’s cat at her assisted living apartment for several months. Since family wasn’t permitted to visit the facility during the COVID quarantine, Carmel kept us connected with our mother and her cat by facilitating phone calls and sending us photos and text updates regularly. She also went above and beyond, offering to purchase pet supplies when needed. We are very grateful for the professional and caring service provided by Pet Porter Pals.

When Carmel arrives, our two-year-old Golden Doodle is overjoyed. We are grateful for her stellar sense of responsibility and thoughtful care of our canine companion, and we appreciate her thoughtful approach to meeting the needs of our exuberant furry friend. She is a favorite in our entire extended household and we enthusiastically recommend her business, Pet Porter Pals, to anyone who wishes to find extra support for their dog-loving family.

Pet Porter Pals saved my life and has relieved unnecessary anxiety. My mom is in assisted living and her cat of 12 years wasn't getting the necessary maintenance a cat needs. I contacted Carmel and within a week we had Shotgun (the cat) on a cleaning/eating routine. During COVID Carmel was a Saint! She stayed in touch with the facility and checked up on Sam but still remained respectful for the restrictions. I wouldn't trust anyone else to take care of my mom's cat, I only want Carmel! THANK YOU!!!

Carmel Mims is an extremely capable, thoughtful person who can be trusted to give extraordinary care to animals in her charge. I have watched dogs of various breeds, ages and sizes (including my own eleven year old Malti-Poo) greet her happily, and obviously return the genuine affection she feels for them. Carmel is a reassuring presence to families as well as to their pets, and I recommend her caregiving expertise without reservation.
