Meet the Pet Sitters

Diana Burton-Kellogg - Owner/Manager

"I love working with animals! In addition to pet sitting with Angel Pet Sitters for almost 10 years, I have worked part time at different pet supply stores, animal shelters, and even fostered pets for local rescues. I have gladly offered time and resources to rehabilitate & rehome abandoned or hurt animals of all types; from dogs, to reptiles, to even a bird of prey.

I lept at the opportunity to purchase Angel Pet Sitters in 2019, as I wanted our clients to remain at ease, and take comfort in knowing that they and their animal-family will continue to have a trusted source for their care.

My other passion is art, and of course I specialize in animals! I even own a costume business where I design and create custom animal mascots from scratch. A couple times a year I will even attend conventions all over the country to promote my works."

Stacey Fraser-Kumpe - Owner/Manager

"Since graduating college with a BA in theatre, I have spent the better part of my career managing national pet supply chain stores. A lover of dogs, cats, birds, small animals, reptiles and fish... I've owned all types of pets (except spiders!). I have also served on several animal welfare-related board of directors, and am currently involved in a Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue.

Originally from Hot Springs, my husband and I currently reside in Fayetteville with our son Chance. I enjoy blues music, art, and travel."

James LeMaster - Springdale/Fayetteville/Lowell

"I have always had pets growing up. Dogs, cats, rabbits and a trained rat, just to name a few. After moving here, I rescued a 10 month old Shar Pei mix puppy with severe hip dysplasia. With diet and exercise, we were able to find him comfort and give him back his independence. Now, 2 yrs later, you would never know he had hip problems. He is running and jumping just as a 2 year old puppy would. I now have 2 dogs and 2 cats with room to expand. Caring for animals is a passion of mine that Angel Pet Sitters has helped me to immerse myself in. All pets need love, and love is what I can give them."

Silja Sample - Rogers/Bentonville

"I'm originally from Ireland, but moved to Rogers several years ago with my husband who is a local. I have three rescue cats, a fish tank, and a dog from Rogers shelter, as well as three kids. I love long walks with my kids.

My hobbies are baking, reading, and anything to do with penguins- I've even been to Antartica and Australia to see them!

I've always been interested in animal welfare. In Ireland, I was manager of the Cats Protection Association and volunteered for the DSPCA (Dublin's animal shelter).

Since coming to the US, I've been pet sitting for APS. I have experience with all types of pets."

Because I am retired, I get to spend time getting to know other people’s cats, dogs, and birds, making sure they are fed and watered and exercised, and also given love. Every animal has its own personality to get to know, from those who accept me right away, to those who are leery and may take 2-3 visits to become friendly. Personally I have had cats and dogs from weeks old to oldsters; one cat lived to be 21 years, and the oldest dog to 15. I have had to medicate my own animals; dogs are easiest because they will usually gulp down anything if it is encased in something yummy, while cats can be medicated but it is definitely more challenging.

The most important thing to me in watching over your pets is to make them as comfortable, physically and emotionally, as possible in the absence of their families, and to relieve you as much as possible from the stress of having to leave them. I look forward to being a reassuring presence in the lives of you and your pets."

Katie Smith - Rogers/Bentonville/Centerton

"Animals gift us with a unique bond that I have always cherished; no matter how hard a day may be, they always find a way to make us smile. I aim to give all pets the same love and care they reward us humans with. I have grown up with many dogs, horses and cats; each with it’s own unique personality. Friends and neighbors have always relied on me to sit for their pets because I care for them as my own. I have experience with puppy potty and kitty litter-box training, as well as basic obedience training. My geriatric/ senior pet care experience insures your loved ones are in safe and loving hands. I remember how difficult and worrisome it was to leave town when the health of my Golden angel pup’s health was failing; I aim to alleviate that worry and cherish caring for and comforting your pets.

Originally from Chicago, I have also lived in Florida, Iowa and Texas. NWA has been home for the last 12+ years for my family. Before staying at home with our now two teen daughters, I worked as a political and campaign consultant. Working with politicians all day made coming home to my sweet Golden Retriever my reprieve!! I am a fur mom to two Golden Retrievers, so in my free time I vacuum A LOT!!! I enjoy gardening, cooking, entertaining friends and family, the beautiful outdoor trails in our area and College Football."

Sue Yarborough - Fayetteville/Springdale

"I’m semi-retired, single, and looking for fur-babies and other critters to care for and pamper. Since I work from home, I’m available anytime. I don’t have pets of my own at the moment, so it is a real joy to be with those that are part of other people’s lives.

I’m a retired rancher, specializing in Arabian horses – breeding, training, showing, and sales. But, of course, we had lots of other animals too and my dogs traveled with me to shows. Inasmuch as we were located near the little township of Ponca, AR, in the heart of the Ozark’s Boston Mountains – on the Buffalo River – and our veterinarian practiced out of Fayetteville, I became skilled in giving medication and shots. My vet saw to that! Furthermore, I had my own pet sitting business in areas of both Atlanta and Houston where I did daytime as well as overnight care.

My pets have included some wonderful dogs and cats, as well as birds and fish. No reptiles, but, as with the others, I’ve learned how smart and receptive they can be to loving care and the people in their lives. I’m an experienced dog-walker and have participated in dog training classes. I’ve been asked to spend extended periods of time with cats to insure they had human company, if they wanted it, while their people were away. My lap has been well-used by many a kitty and dog and they seem to enjoy the contact as much as I do.

Other areas of interest are music, reading, and gardening – including house plants. After retiring from ranching and the horses, I had to rely on other people to care for my own pets and finding someone or someplace suitable was always a concern. So, I know how difficult it can be finding someone you can trust. I’m here to relieve you of that concern and I look forward to meeting you and your pet or pets. I take being entrusted with your pets seriously, but I’m always up for some play time and a lot of love."
