About us

Ally McPets Pet Sitting

Ally McPets has been in business since 1992. It was originally owned by my boss. When she decided to move to the east coast I bought it from her.

It did originally have a different name. It was changed before I bought it. 

It was changed to Ally McPets and we’ve kept it since it’s pretty catchy!

The secret of our success?

Our Team

Owner

Jill Rose

I am a lifelong South Bay resident and grew up in Palos Verdes Estates. I have always been an animal lover and had pets at home. I started out at a young age caring for neighbors pets. I also enjoyed volunteering at Cabrillo Marine Museum as a teenager.

We like to donate regularly to pet rescues. We have also participated in the K9 Cancer Walk in Long Beach. I had a fun time visiting Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. (If you ever have a chance to visit- it’s fantastic!) I started pet sitting in 1992 with another company and came over to Ally McPets and worked as manager of the team for 6 1/2 years before buying the company from my boss. I have truly enjoyed so much time spent with loving pets!

I had a fun experience being a part of Animal Planet’s My Cat from Hell on episode 8 during season 3.

I married my husband Ray in 2014. He grew up in Huntington Beach and has always been an animal lover. He really enjoys meeting the new pets on our schedule.

Adrienne about us page

ADRIENNE ROSE

Pet Care Specialist

Hello, my name is Adrienne. I grew up mostly in Huntington Beach, CA.

I grew up around dogs, cats, guinea pigs & birds. I knew my calling was taking care of all animals. I am certified in animal care & have over 10 years of experience in animal behavior, pet sitting and dog walking. I’ve learned all about animal behavior from volunteering and working at pet hospitals, pet stores and shelters. I take precise precaution with your pet on our walks making sure they are always safe. I am a trustworthy pet sitter and will always make sure your pet is happy, fed and has plenty of play time. I am excited to be a part of Ally Mcpets and look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!

Between the ages of 4 and 10, I lived in Tulare County, which is just a little east from Visalia, CA. With my upbringing, I was exposed to a large variety of types of animals. From farm animals to house pets. I knew from a young age that I loved caring for animals, as I have always been drawn to them. In my recent years I had been lucky enough to have lived in an environment where I cared for and loved all sorts of animals on the daily basis. From turtles and fish, to parrots, dogs, and cats, even ducks and geese. I am a nurturer by nature. It is something that I enjoy immensely. I have worked for Ally McPets in the past under the guidance of the owner, Jill Rose, where I have learned through her just how possible it is to do what you love for a living. I am thrilled to be back working again as part of the team!

Hi there! My name is Nikki and I absolutely love animals!

I’ve had pet rabbits since I was 10 but have always loved all types of animals. I have 18 years experience pet sitting and dog walking in which I have cared for dogs, cats and exotic pets. I have also done wildlife rehabilitation for the past 10 years and am currently volunteering at the International Bird Rescue. I enjoy wildlife photography in my free time as well. I am happy to be a part of the Ally McPets team and look forward to having the privilege of caring for your pets.

I am originally from Virginia but moved to California in July of 2015. I have grown up around all kinds of animals from dogs, cats, chickens, horses, deer, goats, lizards, and even snakes! I have four animals myself, two cats and two dogs. I knew from a young age I had a special connection with animals. One of my passions is conservation and I hope to help restore the planet’s wild places. I’m super excited to be working with Jill and Ally McPets to provide your fur babies with excellent care!

Delaisha Drye

Pet Care Specialist

At the age of 13 my first dream was to become a vet…

…I’ve been very passionate about all kinds of animals, while trying to start a pet service of my own when I was 11! I have six years of kitten and cat fostering and dog walking/sitting experience. My top priority has always been the to ensure that any animal I interact with and take care of is happy and healthy! I’m so happy to be part of the Ally McPets team and to be able to give your pets the loving care they need!

I went into my first “real” job as a professional animal care taker at the age of 16. I would care for the animals in the surrounding cities in the South Bay, walking, feeding, administering medications etc. Soon after I ventured out and found a small family owned pet store close to home and started working there throughout high school. While there I grew into my second position within the same company at their mobile vet clinic. 1st Care Vet where I gained a lot of my hands on experience with animal medicine. With the mobile vet clinic I worked hand in hand with veterinarians, administering vaccines, giving medications.

Soon after high school I started at my current job at Western Veterinary Group (also a family owned Torrance Buisness).  
as a Veterinary Receptionist. I soon worked my way up to the Lead CSR position, and now I am currently the Administrative Assistant. My passion for animals hasn’t changed, but missing the hands on experience has brought me to seek a position with Ally McPets Pet Sitting.
