Your pet nanny

Welcome to Au Pets! My name is Katie. It is my mission to provide Algiers Point with the most personalized care for your creature’s comfort. I pledge to provide the loving attention your animals deserve and the quality assistance you need as their busy pet parent.

I began Au Pets in Chicago. It has been my little bundle of joy, poop and weather since 2015. Now happily living in Algiers Point, I am thrilled to celebrate the 3rd anniversary by serving you here as New Orleans celebrates its 300th!

dog visits

$15/20 minutes – $20/30 minutes – $10 quick potty break

kitty care

$15 – Visits include fresh water and food, litter box cleanup, cuddles, and detailed update. Please share any specific toys we can play with to energize and engage your frisky feline in your absence.

vacation care

You know your pet best. Schedule as many visits as needed, and I’ll also bring in your mail, turn lights off and on, adjust the thermostat, water plants, etc.

$10 will be added for visits outside of normal business hours and on weekends, and are subject to availability.

$20 will be added per day on all national holidays.

lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Well, not quite. But I have cared for chinchillas, parakeets, big fish, little fish, and rats (yep, 3 at once, many times). Most ‘other’ pet care visits are considered standard at $15. However, some fuzzy friends can take longer and pricing is determined per the care and time needed.


Regularly scheduled weekly clients will be billed every Friday morning. Payment must be remitted by Sunday evening for continued service; auto-pay is encouraged. Payments for vacation care are to be submitted prior to service. Payment options include QuickPay with Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, check and cash.

The Au Pets Pledge

Hi, my name is Katie. As a pet parent of three, I started Au Pets not only to do what I love, but to give your pets what they love. Because pet care is more than taking your dog out to go potty or filling your kitty’s bowl with kibbles, it’s walking the extra mile.

Being an experienced dog walker—and also a dog-walker client, when previously balancing a demanding office job and commute—I understand the need for exercise, stimulation and relief that our friends so appreciate while we are out of the house. There is great peace of mind that comes with knowing your animals are taken care of each day, and that they are excited for their daily visits. The gratitude I had for my own dog walker and kitty care professional was without measure. I look forward to building the same bond with your animals, and you.
