​​Creatures Professional Pet Care, LLC
 In-your-home pet care for domestic & exotic creatures


Creatures Professional Pet Care, LLC is a full-time, insured and bonded pet care service in Kalamazoo, MI, owned and operated by Certified Professional Pet Sitter and former zookeeper, Tami Port, MS, CPPS. Creatures offers customized in-your-home pet sitting and enrichment services for both domestic & exotic pets, as well as dog walking and dog manners training & socialization. 

I'm Tami, owner of Creatures Professional Pet Care, LLC.

I've spent my life fascinated by, caring for, and learning about all kinds of creatures. After a childhood filled with domestic and exotic pets (and my mother's infinite patience), I pursued an education in biology, with emphasis in zoology and animal behavior.
​​While earning a Bachelor's degree in biology from Grand Valley State University, I spent three summers zookeeping at John Ball Zoo. I pursued my Master's degree in Animal Behavior from Bucknell University, followed by an internship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Animal Center in Maryland, studying squirrel monkey behavior.
​​Ultimately, I returned to Michigan, and spent several years teaching college biology. ​​Now I've returned to what I enjoy most, working hands-on with creatures, professionally caring for animals in the Kalamazoo area.​ ​

I am passionate about enriching the lives of pets and their people, providing our animal companions with loving care and activities that enhance their physcial and mental health. My work with dogs goes beyond provinding physical exercise, to include manners training and socialization, helping dogs live more harmoniously within their human families. 

As a pet owner, I know how important it is to find someone who is responsible, and can be trusted, not only with the care of your animals, but also with access to your home. 

My goal is to give your pets the very best care, and provide you with peace of mind when you're away from your pet family.
