About us

Quality exotic pet care shouldn't be hard to come by. Bird Girl Pet Services is Nassau County's compassionate pet care provider for dogs, cats, small mammals, and birds. Learn more about us below.

As an avid animal lover my entire life, particularly with birds, I've worked around them my entire career - with exotic veterinarians as well as being a bird boarding and grooming business owner. There was really no one else safe in the area who provided such a specialty service - a service that, as a fellow bird owner, I knew was really needed. From the experience and mentorship I gained in the industry, I started Bird Girl Pet Services and never looked back.

We have now expanded to offering care for dogs, cats, and other small mammals, including guinea pigs, rabbits, and chinchillas. 

We strive every day to provide peace and reassurance for bird and exotic animal owners in knowing that there is someone out there who specializes in caring for their pet's species.

I currently have four birds of my own: Tiki (White Bellied Caique), Buddy (Cockatiel), Marley (Green Cheek Conure) & Reuben (Eclectus).

Our home is filled of birdsong - from our birds to the birds of our clients, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

"Kaitlin is wonderful, she has a great knowledge of exotic pets and truly cares about her customers. It’s so reassuring to know my bunnies are in great hands when I have to board them. I highly recommend Bird Girl Pet Services, she’s been a lifesaver on multiple occasions!"
