We can't get enough of wet noses, wagging tails, fluffy ears, and more!

The pets that we care for each have their own personality, uniquely different in every way… just like people! They are loving and joyful when we come!!

My pet sitter team is made up of very loving, honest, reliable, professional sitters who take the responsibility of caring for beloved pets as a privilege and honor.

When we walk pups, we require that they are always on a leash, so other pups are avoided and waste clean up is a must.

On a typical walk, we ensure that the pups have an enjoyable time outside while staying within their behavior boundaries.

We always provide courtesy home care which includes bringing in the mail/ newspaper, alternating lights, opening and closing blinds, watering plants, filling bird feeders, scooping litter boxes and bring out/in the trash and recycling bins.

For our furry friends besides giving lots of love, rubs and kisses, we also feed as instructed, provide fresh water and plenty of playtime. As required we also administer medications or provide vitamins.

Our best experiences are all the wonderful pets and people that we feel blessed to know!!

My tip is that having a professional pet sitter to care for your beloved pet in their own home is the best way to go!!!

About My Business
Welcome to Home on the Range Pet Sitting LLC. My name is Kelley Richie, and I would like to share some of my background with you. First and foremost, I love animals! Dogs have been a big part of my life since my parents bought our first dog when I was four. Although I’ve had at least one dog in my life ever since, there has been a variety of other pets in my life, including cats, fish, guinea pigs, hamsters, turtles, rabbits, and ferrets.

German Shorthair Pointers have been my primary breed for many years. My husband & I currently have 6 German Shorthair Pointers “fur kids and 2 cats.”

I have worked in the Heavy Duty Trucking business, parts sales and services for 35 years. I also have 6+ years of pet sitting experience. One day, I decided to embrace an opportunity to “re-invent” myself. I wanted to work with and care for animals, while pursuing my passion for excellence in customer service and utilizing my business and animal care experience. The idea of starting my own pet sitting business was a natural fit.

I am licensed, insured, bonded, certified in first aid & CPR and a member of NAPPS (National Association of Pet Sitters), the largest organization of professional pet sitters.

Hi, I'm Erika. I recently married the love of my life and I'm a third generation Elko native. Most importantly however, I love my job! I have a wide range of interests and animals top the list. I've spent more than half my life in animal services, acquiring a wealth of information on shy, timid, scared pets, as well as administering medications. There's always something new to learn as every home and pet is unique. I have two dogs of my own and couldn't imagine a single day without a furry(feathered or scaled) friend. I can't wait to meet yours!

Hi! My name is Tina but many people call me Dog Mom. I had a doggy daycare called "Dog Mom's". But I am a Cat Mom too. I can't remember a day in my life without dogs and cats. I am a Southern California beach girl that moved here 31 years ago to get away from traffic. I love it here. My husband and I have three golden retrievers and one cat. They are our kids. I have had lots of experience with animals. I went to professional dog training school in Arizona, taught dog obedience, worked for a vet for 9 years, and a groomer for two. My husband and I own Pizza Barn and that keeps me busy, but life wouldn't be complete without caring for animals. I have loved Kelley's pet sitting services since she started it. I am so thrilled to join her team.

Hello! My name is Alea, I have 3 children, 4 dogs, 2 cats, a cockatiel, frog, and a couple of fish. I live in Spring Creek, but am from Utah. I am fortunate to have a husband that has let me do what I love - be a Stay at Home Mom to my kids, and animals for many years. I have fostered, tamed, and rehomed feral kittens during that time, and during my childhood. I love playing with animals, and teaching them tricks. My cats will even sit, and stand on their back legs for me (and treats!) I love furry, and feathered animals, and learning as much as I can about them. I am excited to get to meet new furry friends to play with!

have lived in the Salt Lake, Provo area of Utah my whole life. I came here when I meet my husband and have been here for around 7 years now. I have always loved animals. I have had a pet of some sort my whole life. You know that you love animals more then people when your own father warns your boyfriend while he asked for your hand in marriage. We have 4 dogs, 2 cats, a turtle and fish right now. I can't wait to meet all of your animals.

Born and raised in Elko, I grew up with seven siblings and many pets! I have cared for chickens, ducks, several dogs and dozens of cats! I always had a handful of critters to look after and enjoyed the precious memories. As a local artist in personalized paintings, I especially enjoy painting animals as well as caring for them.  I am the proud mother of two green cheek conures, Pistachio and Arya. Pistachio is three years old and Arya just turned one in January 2020. I plan on utilizing my drafting and design degree to design my own mini aviary for my birds, in hopes of owning a few more feather babies, as well as fur babies!


My name is Bailey Thornblad. I just moved here from Salt Lake City, UT with my husband and baby to start a new adventure, secretly to add to my own little farm. I am a stay at home mom with my Boy who just turned one and all my animals, 1 German Shepherd (Wendell), 1 Dutch Shepherd (Bear), 2 Loppy Bunnies (Ollie & Lola), 1 Orange Tabby Cat (Gary), and our fresh water fish tank!
There has always been a warm place in my heart for animals old and new, with experience handling the more unusual pets such as Birds, Chickens, Turkeys, Ponies, Reptiles, snakes, and tarantulas, thanks to my husband. Every kind of animal deserves to be loved no matter what species!
I am excited to get back to work and out of the house, and I will love to love your pets as if they are my own!


Lifelong musician. Patient and peaceful.
I've had two dogs, both rescues and one very demanding cat for more than half of my life.


Hello, my name is Tess. I have been in the animal care business for many years so the transition to pet sitting seemed a natural thing to do. I am a horse trainer and have operated a training and boarding stable in Spring Creek for 25 years. I am a proud wife, mom and grandmother. I own 3 horses, 2 golden retrievers and 2 cats. I was raised on a ranch and cannot remember a time that animals and their care were not a part of my life. Being a business owner in the animal industry,
I understand the importance of caring for animals, as well as putting the owners at ease knowing theirmembersofthefamilyarebeingtakencareofwhiletheyareaway. Iamabsolutelythrilled to be part of Kelley’s team!

I have had dogs of all kinds my whole life and don’t know what we’d do without them! All animals are truly amazing and I can’t wait to meet yours!


I've always been an animal lover and I have experience caring for many species. I grew up with German Shepherds and Pomeranians, cats and horses.
Previously owned by cows, goats, chickens and various other species of birds, I currently care for many reptiles and rodents in addition to my horses and dogs.
I look forward to getting to know your animals too!


Hi my name is Jenny and I would love to be your pet sitter.

From a young age I have always had animals around me as my mother enjoyed the company of many types of critters. She indulged my passion of the small furry kind. As I got older I took on more responsibility and now I share my love of animals with my husband and kids.

Currently I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 ferrets and 5 fish.

To date other animals I have raised are kangaroos, a blue tongue lizard, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice (as pets), rats, a hamster, geese, chickens, pigs, turkeys, guinea fowl, cockatiels, lorikeets, other parrots, and tropical fish.

It would be a pleasure to meet you and your furry, feathered or smooth skinned families.

Thanks Jenny.

Hi! My name is Heather. We moved to Spring Creek in 2019, before that I was born and raised in Southern Illinois. The Midwest holds a special place in my heart, but I love to knit on the porch with my coffee on a cool desert morning. While here I have been blessed with the privilege of being a full time wife and homeschool Mom. I have always had a special connection with animals. I have been known to greet animals before their humans on a regular basis. Dogs have been a part of my family for as long as I can remember. I believe a pet's time with us is very precious and they should be treated with respect and love. We currently have a senior Labrador, a pair of cat sisters and many chickens at our home. I have experience with salt water aquariums, guinea pigs. lizards and I am always willing to learn something new. Animals fill a special place in our hearts and I look forward to being trusted with your loved pet.

Alissa Pepiot

Hello! My name is Alissa. I moved to Spring Creek in 2015, and I grew up in a small town in NW Montana. For the past 5 years I have worked underground for Nevada Gold Mines. I recently made the decision to leave that position in order to take better care of myself and my family, so I now hold the titles of a stay at home wife, stepmom, and fur momma. I have five dogs Hades, Hera, Harlea, Havoc and Halo. I also have 2 cats, Bubbles and Wanda, along with a whole flock of chickens! I have always loved animals, so I can’t wait to give your fur babies the love they need and deserve when you can’t be around!


I have had and loved animals my whole life, to me they are family. I was a manager of a horse farm in upstate New York, I had the pleasure of taking care of 30 horses. I also had horses of my own, as well as chickens, cows, pigs, goats and birds. I have also worked as a pet stylist. I have had many jobs in my life but the ones with animals have been my most rewarding. Right now I have two dogs of my own, Monty, my rescue Chihuahua and my Mona, a Boston terrier.
