About Me


Me with my beloved rescue collie Ace, who passed away in 2021.

My name is Kathy Gyoerick.  I began offering pet daycare/boarding services in 2013.  I come from an administrative background originally, but have over a decade of experience working directly with animals.  I managed a rural humane society for 3 years prior to founding my own animal rescue, Kat’s Kritters Rescue, which I have been operating since January of 2014. 

Over the years, I have taken courses in animal sciences and veterinary assisting as well as have received my Fear Free Shelter Certificate in 2019. I completed my Fear Free Pet Sitter Certification in 2022 and am proud to be a Fear Free Certified Professional.

I have signed the Fear Free Pledge, a commitment to uphold a humane, emotionally protective code of conduct and ethical standard for pet care and professionalism. Maintaining this certification will require annual completion of continuing education courses and remaining in good standing with the Fear Free organization by upholding ethical standards and codes of conduct.

I currently have 3 senior dogs of my own – Jasper (a rough collie), Angus (a bulldog mix), and Cody (an American Eskimo mix), and 1 senior cat – Tony (who thinks he’s a dog)!

I offer pet daycare/boarding services from my rural home/property south of Sperling, MB.  My goal is to provide an environment that keeps your pet’s mind and body active and provides them with a pressure free experience. I want your pet to enjoy their stay and have a good time just being themselves in a cage-free environment.  I do my best to keep your pet happy and to ensure their visit is as stress-free as possible.  I operate a bit differently from a traditional boarding facility! Pets are allowed to express normal behaviour such as running, playing, digging, exploring, and getting dirty all in a rural, enriched by nature environment.  Clients have described their pets stay here as comparable to sending their kids to summer or winter camp!

Please carefully review all information regarding boarding your pet with me and feel free to contact me at katskrittersmb@gmail.com with any questions! Please note that space is limited because I work alone, and also operate an animal rescue from the same location, so can only accommodate as many animals as I can safely handle. Book early to avoid disappointment.
