a diva love story
All great loves in history have a story. Romeo and Juliet comes to mind. The DIVAS Pet Sitters' story is no different. We love our pets. We love your pets. We love to tell our story about who we are.
Since 2009, "The DIVAS" have provided "peace-of-mind" pet care for precious furry babies. Originally named Doggie DIVAS Walking Service, LLC, we changed our name to The DIVAS Pet Sitters, LLC. to reflect that we don't just walk dogs. In fact, some of our four-legged DIVAS and DIVOS prefer the backyard over a walk any day. We also take care of cats and the occasional feathered pet too!
All "DIVAS-on-Duty" are pet owners who understand how hard it is to leave the beloved family pet for extended periods of time.
We take our pet care seriously! Every "DIVA-on-Duty" undergoes a thorough reference check, drug screening and criminal background check prior to hiring.
the DIVA bosses:
DIVA julie (ceo)
DIVA Julie (CEO) has always been a kindred spirit human to dogs: she has been a dog owner most of her life. When she and DIVA Fran started making a business out of caring for pets, cats came with the package. She is now a proud kitty mama of Kiddie Kiddie, her 3 legged cat who adopted her family 7 years ago. DIVA Julie can't imagine her life without dogs or cats! As the DIVA'S Chief Executive Officer, DIVA Julie is responsible for daily DIVA operations and Facebook page.
DIVA fran (cso)
DIVA Fran (CSO) learned responsible pet care at a young age thanks to her amazing parents Frances and Otis Waguespack: The original DIVA and DIVO. When DIVA Fran moved back to Louisiana in 2008, she and her twin sister, DIVA Julie, knew going into the pet care business was the only logical thing to do! After raising two precious Lhasa pups Katie and Dante, DIVA Fran is the proud pet mama of TooToo and Brioche: Two very rotten tuxedo kitties. As the DIVA'S Chief Support Officer, DIVA Fran is responsible for HR, Accounting + Finances, and the Website.

DIVA val miller
DIVA Bonnie is a retired teacher of St. Tammany Parish who has always had a soft heart for pets. Cats are her favorite which is why she loves being a pet sitter. Don't let her favoritism for felines fool you! She has a soft spot in her heart for our canine companions too. Her mantra is: "a house is not a home without a pet included in the family."
Besides caring for furry families, DIVA Sydney has both a "human family" and pet family to love. Before becoming a DIVA, Syndey was a nurse. DIVA Sydney truly loves both people and pets.
DIVA Val joined the DIVA team in August 2015. She has a passion for pets. The furry pet clients can feel her love. She is the proud pet mom to Thunder, whom she adopted from the St. Tammany Humane Society. A natural photographer, she really knows how to capture the beauty and spirit of the pets during their visits. Her pictures are amazing!
