On the Move Pet Care, LLC was founded in 2013 by Bethany Stevens, a Rochester native with a heart for all things furry, finned and feathered. Passion for animals and the desire to do what she loves every day are Bethany’s true driving motivators. With experience working with an exceptional Dog Walking and Pet Sitting company in Washington, DC, Bethany’s return to Rochester left her searching for similar services and comparable pet-friendly events. In 2013, Bethany created On the Move Pet Care, LLC to provide an affordable option to young professionals and families alike who currently rely on friends, family and lunch breaks to accommodate their pet needs.
Bethany is there every step of the way to ensure that your pets receive the quality, personalized care they crave and the treats that they deserve!

Meet Andrea! Originally a 315er from the Finger Lakes area, Andrea moved back to upstate NY 10 years ago from Colorado. She made the trek across the country with her trusty companion, Zowie, a 12 yr old toursie shell cat. Another round of cats and a recent move to Irondequoit had her moving in with 9 yr old American Staffordshire, Bailey. She has trained him to walk without pulling out her arm, using positive reinforcement and love. She has grown up with cats, dogs, fish, hamsters, and “lovely” snakes. Her philosophy with animals is the same with children – treat them with kindness and respect and expect the same back. Children and animals always rise to the occasion. How does she spend her off time? Exploring Rochester, New York and other places that will have her. In addition, Andrea is big on volunteering – Mentor at Compeer, Advisor to her sorority at RIT, and committee member for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Jennifer has recently moved back to Rochester to spend the summer in her hometown until she returns to school in the Fall. She is a junior studying Psychology at Boston University with a minor in Deaf Studies. Although she thoroughly enjoys living in Boston, she is thrilled to be reunited with her adorable Pug dog, Bubba. Her family has always loved Pugs and she has been heavily involved in the training and care for her childhood pets. Caring for her dogs came naturally because she is an enthusiastic dog-lover and she is eager to give your pets the all attention (and love!) they want. When she’s not working at On The Move, she enjoys biking, photography, running, and hiking—basically anything that lets her appreciate the outdoors! She can’t think of a better way to spend her time than getting outside to work with dogs every day and can’t wait to meet your furry friends.
