Welcome to our about us page. Whether you stumbled upon this page by accident or on purpose, I hope you find something beneficial here. Potential clients can learn a little more about Kelley Stewart, the brains behind sit-stay-play, and learn a little more about the company.
I’ll jump right in and tell you about us and me (from a 3rd person perspective) and how I started this business…
Kelley Stewart is a Muncie native and Ball State grad. She’s a professional cosmetologist and continues to do hair styling services in her spare time. She’s an avid traveler and called Germany home at one point. She loves gardening (but doesn’t have much time for it anymore), hiking, salsa dancing, roller blading, spending time with her granddaughter’s, friends and family. She’s a pit bull advocate and mom to a 2-legged Chihuahua, Sonny. She loves playing laser tag and jumping on trampolines. She’s a hard worker, has tenacity, is driven and is a huge animal lover. Her goals in life include helping people and animals and does both successfully, on a daily basis, in her role as CEO and pet sitter at sit-stay-play In-home pet sitting & more.LLC. She’s a passionate entrepreneur and started the company from the ground up. She’s watched it grow into a very successful business since its’ inception in 2008.
The sky’s the limit and nothing is impossible in Kelley’s mind; with enough work and creative thinking, almost anything can be accomplished.
about us – the future looks bright for the pet care industry
There’s no shortage of dogs, cats and other pets in the United States, or in Muncie, Indiana. This is great for us because as long as we continue to provide excellent care, our clients continue to book and refer their friends to us.
As far as expansion, that’s obviously a goal. However, maintaining our current level of care is most important. Growing too big too fast is not something I want to do and staying ahead of the game, watching our numbers and acting preemptively is important.
I was watching one of Marie Forleo’s videos recently and Seth Godin was her guest. He was talking about Jeopardy and about the difference of the button pushers. You’re either the person who pushes the button before actually know the answer or you’re the one who sits back and waits to push the button until you know for certainty what the answer is.
I’m the one who pushes the button before knowing the answer. I jump before I know exactly how I’m going to land.
If you need a little motivation, kick in the pants or just want to read exactly what Seth Godin said, have a look at this video…Mario Forleo will blow your mind and Seth, well, Seth will cause you to totally reevaluate yourself if you allow it. Both are mentors of mine and I encourage you to check em out.
Please browse around our site and go here to send a message. We’re flexible and are willing to help you be the best pet parent you can.
about us – philanthropy in the community
Philanthropy is important. Whether it’s providing free pet nail trims, free or reduced pet sitting fees, help with spay and neuter surgeries or veterinary care or giving free children’s hair cuts, I love being able to help fellow humans (and animals). Furthermore, I like to give other people the opportunity to give back. In partnering with other people more can be accomplished. By giving people easy ways to help others in our community that helps us all be better people.

My life is enriched because of the people and pets I meet in this business. Countless little blessings come my way including puppy kisses and kitty purrs. Even the occasional horse lick and a nuzzle from a Jersey calf is enough to make me want to get out of bed each day! I get the chance to help pet parents be the best they can by providing safe, dependable care to their extended ‘family’ – who else can say that about their job?
As a result of my dog training and handling experience, I see a dog go from pulling on the leash to walking politely in just a matter of minutes. I get the pleasure of working with shy, timid dogs and see them come out of their shells.
I’m always on guard and watching for signs of animal neglect and abuse. I allow myself to be a voice for the voiceless and an easy ear to talk to when someone has questions or concerns.
Should you need any type of pet care services, I’d appreciate the opportunity. Read our REVIEWS!
