The Wishbones for Pets Team

Janet Depathy, Founder

Janet is the owner of Wishbones for Pets, and former owner of Under My Wings, a successful pet sitting business in Plymouth Massachusetts. Because of her passion for birds, she found herself trading pet sitting jobs with friends. Then, in 1994, she decided to turn her passion into her business, and Under My Wings was hatched. Although she began caring for birds, her business expanded to caring for all pets. In 2015, after more than 20 years in the business, Janet retired from pet sitting.

Therese Kopiwoda, Editorial Director

Therese started her Austin, Texas pet sitting business, LucyGirl Pet Sitting, in 2001 after being laid off from a high tech job. Started primarily because she had a difficult time finding a job, she soon realized being laid off was the best thing that could have happened. In 2003 she combined her high tech skills with her love of pets and launched PetsitUSA, which she sold in 2012. Therese is also a WordPress web designer and social media consultant at Social Media Hound.
