Loving animals isn't our business. It's our lifestyle.
Hi! I'm Aubrie the founder of VIVA PETS and have a couple words before you read some fun silly facts about us!
Love for animals is something that has remained constant throughout my entire life. While doing lots of pet sitting/walking, it always seemed like a hobby and not a job. Over the years I have been first picked by friends and family to care for their furry family members. After two years of noticing many referrals and my community of pet clients growing, it was time to make a decision to turn a hobby into something more; and so VIVA PETS was born! Six years later and now with a power-packed team, we are able to make more furry friends across Los Angeles. We are a small, tight-knit group of my friends whom I’ve known from 2-18 years. We are NOT the Uber of pet sitting: we know your furry friend; we work as a team so we are all familiar with the going-ons with them; and we have monthly meetings/trainings to ensure we are providing the best experience for them and yourself. This is more than filling up bowls and tugging on leashes for us, and I hope that you can tell! xo!

You can usually find me listening to The Smiths, involved in activism, cooking from scratch, trying hard not to kill plants, or making some DIY version of pretty much anything.
I like to read non fiction books – nutrition, biographies & self help. Or Harry Potter, the exception to the non fiction obsession.
I’m pretty much a hippie (vegan for life, I tote around reusable cups/utensils because I like the environment & I enjoy making non chemical household items) except for fashion, I definitely don’t look like a hippie.
