Colleen Robles

Colleen has been the owner and primary operator of Santa Barbara Pet Pals since it’s inception in 2004.  She graduated from UCSB with a BS in Aquatic Biology in 2001. Having such a keen interest in marine life she spent a lot of time SCUBA diving and also volunteered at the Marine Mammal center in Santa Barbara.  Her love of helping animals brought her to volunteer for the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network as well as seek a career in Veterinary Medicine.

For over 3 years, Colleen worked in all aspects of Veterinary Care from grooming to assisting in surgery.  After working with animals in a high stress environment she knew she wanted to care for pets in a much more comfortable and positive atmosphere. She started Santa Barbara Pet Pals to ensure that pets will receive the best loving care and get the exercise they need, while staying in the comfort of their own homes.

Raoul Robles

Raoul has been the co-owner and operator of Santa Barbara Pet Pals since it’s inception in 2004.  Most of Raoul’s youth and young adulthood was spent working in his uncle’s Veterinary Clinic located in Southern Arizona.  While working at he clinic Raoul had the great opportunity to work with Domestic, Equine, and Bovine animals as well as various exotic animals.  Raoul has graduated from Santa Barbara Business College and now applies the business skills learned to making a solid and cohesive Pet Sitting Business.  After meeting Colleen in 2002, Raoul soon began fulfilling his dream of starting a business that focused on the care of animals.  Raoul’s animal care giving and business background allow for him to fulfill his lifelong goal, which has always been to bring happiness to animals through companionship, and compassion.

Rey Casillas

A graduate of UCSB, Rey was born and raised in Santa Barbara.  Animals have been a part of his life from a very young age.  He has hand raised several rabbits, dogs, cats, and birds.  Rey jumped at the opportunity to get involved in pet sitting in 2008 and is thoroughly enjoying the time he spends pet sitting.  From caring for a Great Pyrenees, newborn English Bulldog puppies, baby kittens, to his experience with a house of 7 cats.  Rey feels fortunate and honored to be given the responsibility of caring for animals while owners are away.

Joyce Brisby

Joyce was born and raised in Santa Barbara.  She graduated from UCLA, married her high school sweetheart, Mark, and helped him build a very successful Sports Medicine and Fitness Training business called The Training Room.  She has been a full-time mom to her two daughters, the youngest of which is now headed off to college, which is allowing Joyce to fill some of her “empty nest” time with one of her passions…dogs!  She and her family have always had dogs including labs, mixed breeds, and currently a yorkie named Boz.  Working for SB Pet Pals feels like the perfect fit and Joyce looks forward to sharing her time and love with your four-legged family member!
