Kimmie Dupree

“Hello fellow animal lovers, my name is Kimmie! I previously worked at a veterinarian’s office in Chicago for six years. I am an animal care provider and have been pet sitting for ten years! Animals are my passion and purpose. I feel lucky to be meeting your fur babies! As a lifelong pet owner, I started volunteering at an animal shelter while living in Chicago. Naturally, I began fostering animals soon after as well as working with multiple rescue groups. I am considered a foster “failure” since I kept the animals I fostered! I also volunteered for Spay and Stay. A “TNR” humane Trap, Neuter, and Release Program for feral cats.” – Kimmie D.


Hi all! My name is Michelle, I recently graduated college from Massachusetts with an environmental science degree along with some wildlife biology courses. I recently moved to Austin and I’m enjoying it very much, and excited to explore more. I have a 12-year-old yellow lab with the biggest heart, and I have also had and cared for chickens, goats, rabbits, hamsters, and fish. I have been pet sitting for about 5 years, and am so grateful to get to know so many wonderful animals. I also recently started to volunteer at the Austin Bat Refuge. I enjoy hiking, playing soccer, gardening, and eating delicious food.

I have always loved dogs since I was young. They fill my heart with lots of joy! I have a strong nurturing side so I love caring for things, especially when they are fluffy and love you unconditionally. I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, running, and discovering wild plants and animals. I am originally from chicago so Austin’s weather is a great match for me! I also just love to cuddle and relax on a comfy couch with some good ice cream.

“Hello, my fellow pack members! I am one of the managing members of Ruff Life ATX and super proud to be part of this dynamic team. I grew up with dogs so I have always been surrounded by animals. My department typically lays with the finances and marketing. However, you can find me from time to time helping out throughout the holidays and at events. My hobbies include; travel, hiking/riding trails with my dog Loki and indoor skydiving!” -Daniel C.


Alisa has been an animal lover for as long as she can remember. She grew up caring for dogs, both her own and those of friends and neighbors. She has also had and cared for cats, fish, hamsters, birds, and chickens. Alisa loves leading an active life and finds Austin to be the perfect place for exercise and outdoor adventure. She practices yoga and swimming and loves to be on the trails running with her dog, Ajax.


I am a recent college graduate from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I just moved down to Texas in January 2019. I have a 1 year old Bernese Mountain dog named Luna. I have owned dogs my whole life and adore them with all my heart. I have volunteered at the Wisconsin Humane Society for about 6 years. I also have experience working with dogs at a previous dog care facility in Wisconsin. In my free time, I enjoy taking Luna on hikes and exploring new places/food. 


We look out for the well being of all pets and their humans!
