About Us

Providing dog walking, dog and cat sitting, and home care services for busy Tucson residents and pet owners.

Our best compliments from clients most often include the peace of mind they feel when we care for their home and animals—And that’s what we’re all about!

We provide constant communication and up-to-date reports after your pet’s visit. Each visit is customized to meet the needs of every pet who’s with us. The Pet Nanny In-Home has all the bases covered for you to enjoy your vacation away or stay focused while busy during long days of work.



Hi, I’m Teresa Bruner!

After moving to Tucson in 2007 with my husband, two sons, and our dog, I knew I wanted to create something that involved my love of animals, and so, I opened my first pet sitting business.

Since then, The Pet Nanny In-Home Pet Sitting has grown to become the highest-quality in-home professional pet care company in the Tucson area, of which we are extremely humbled and grateful to be. Over the years, we’ve responded to the needs and worries of busy and travel-inspired Tucson pet owners who were looking for someone to provide the peace of mind they needed while they were away. 

I love walking into homes and seeing the happy faces and wagging tails of my pet clients. Getting a shy pet, either dog or cat, to come out of its shell and trust me is my favorite part of my career. I am very lucky to have found my niche and am lucky to have such wonderful clients—both pets and people!  

When I’m not giving love to your cats and dogs, I spend time with my family and two dogs, who sniff me madly when I return home.

I’ve lived in the Tucson since 2006 and have a great passion for the Sonoran Desert. I grew up in Florida but I’m very happy to call Arizona my home. My other great passion is my love of animals! Especially Dogs. I’ve had Birds, Cats and Dogs my whole life and my last three and current one is a little Yorkshire Terrier, Elsi.  I  would love to someday establish a Yorkie and small dog rescue in memory of the ones I’ve loved. To pamper and care for the way mine were.  I’m honored to have the opportunity to sit with, love, and care for your pet.

I’m a third generation Arizona Native and a lover of all animals. I really enjoy working with The Pet Nanny where I care for each pet I visit with love and respect. I have had many pets over the years including dogs, turtles, fish, snakes, and birds. I am a proud mother of two daughters and two dogs. My pets are members of the family and are nearly always found on my lap or right by my side.

Laura H.

I’ve worked with all types of animals in my past career including some wild and endangered species, but now I’m happily retired.  I really enjoy working  for The Pet Nanny.  Besides having two rescue dogs of my own, I also enjoy fostering cats/kittens, dogs/puppies, and even bunnies off and on which provides me with many entertaining moments. I have always had animals around me, so taking care of your animal “children” would be my pleasure.

I’m a Tucson native recently relocated back to the Old Pueblo after 5 years in D.C., followed by a year in Santa Fe, NM. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing tennis, and experiencing the great outdoors. I’m the proud owner of a spirited corgi, Luna, who provides no shortage of laughs. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

I am a retired elementary school teacher. I love and have worked with pets my entire life. I have experience with animals from the tiniest 3 lb. Teacup Chihuahua to the goliath 130 lb. Great Dane. I have a special place in my heart for abandoned animals and animals with high needs. I have adopted 2 tripod dogs and other animals with varying levels of medical needs. I truly care for all living creatures and will go above and beyond to make sure they are cared for well. My current fur babies are both rescues, Tillie and Rogue. I look forward to taking care of your precious fur baby!

I have lived in Tucson since 2010, and after 38 years as a registered nurse, I am currently semi-retired.  I have been a long-time volunteer dog walker and foster parent with the Humane Society.   I also love the outdoors and frequently hike, cycle, run, golf, and swim.  I currently have 2 rescue dogs, Arthur and Cocoa, the loves of my life!  I love cats as well, and all other animals, and look forward to caring for your furry family members!

I am a retired elementary teacher and have lived in Tucson since 1999. I am a lifelong animal lover and devoted pet mom.  In the past we have had dogs, cats, rabbits, a bird, fish, lizards and desert tortoises. I have volunteered with and supported several rescue groups in Tucson. I currently have 4 dogs of my own. My pets are family members!   I look forward to meeting you and your pets! 

Zandrea S.

I moved to Tucson in May 2021 from Cincinnati, Ohio, and I absolutely love it! I graduated with a BS in Biology (Spanish minor) and am in my first year of Vet School at UofA . I will earn my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2024.   I have extensive experience with animals such as working as a kennel technician,  as a veterinary receptionist, volunteering at the Cincinnati Zoo, Vet clinics, growing up with a variety of pets, and shadowing lots of veterinarians.   As a vet student, I would like you all to know that your pets are in great hands with us! All pets are cared for with upmost respect and care.

I’m happy to be a part of The Pet Nanny team. I have had and been involved with animals most of my life both domestic and wild.  Working at both national and local level humane societies and as a former vet tech, I understand how important the human-animal bond is and that pets are family.  My own pet family consists of three Aussies, Tess, Oz and Brodie, two cats, Latte and Tony and my beautiful horse Sedona.I look forward to taking care of your pet families as if they were my own.


Sandi L.

I’ve always been an animal lover. Over the years, my children and I had numerous dogs, cats, birds and guinea pigs. Currently, I have an 8 year old mixed Shepherd, Mollie, and Peanut, who is a 9 year old Chihuahua.

Since I am now retired, I thought this would be a good opportunity to expand my love of animals by taking care of your pet “children” as I would want my own to be treated.


Kit L.

British born, but recently moved to Tucson to melt in the heat. I love to travel, and anything to do with the ocean……obviously the desert was the perfect choice to settle down 🙂 I also have the best road trip buddy in my 10 year old dachshund Rory.  Though she can be a bit of a diva, she’s very much a big softie and loves her cuddles. I’ve always had a love of animals, and it seems they feel the same as most tend to gravitate to me, either wanting cuddles or to strike a pose for the inevitable photo op. I’ve looked after pups that need special care knowing that “a spoon full of peanut butter helps the medicine go down”. I’ve rubbed many furry bellies both here in Tucson and back in the UK, and look forward to meeting your fur baby for many more pets and kisses.

Dependable, kind, and caring. I am completely confident when I leave home that my cats will not only have their basic needs met, they will also get personal attention as well. I receive daily texts with photos when I am out of town, this is so reassuring. I highly recommend The Pet Nanny.
