About Joseph Bianca
Joseph Bianca is proud and excited to provide professional pet sitting services to the Longview area in 2020 through his company Longview Pet Sitting, LLC. Prior to moving back to Texas and his hometown (LHS Class of 87), Joseph founded his first pet sitting company, Prospect Pet Sitting, LLC, in 2016 in Prospect near Louisville Kentucky. Since opening in 2016, Joseph built relationships with and cared for the furry children of many loyal clients.
Prior to starting Prospect Pet Sitting, LLC, Joseph spent more than 20 years in the fields of marketing, corporate training, human resources, healthcare administration and finance for organizations that include IKON Office Solutions, ADP TotalSource, South Miami Hospital, KentuckyOne Health and Bellarmine University. His education includes a BBA from the University of North Texas and a MBA from the University of Miami.
The decision to pursue a career outside the realm of the traditional corporate setting was fomented by a desire to combine a deep seated love of animals, skill and business ownership fostered initially by years of volunteer experience working with animals through the Humane Society as well as a number of public and private shelters, adoption agencies and pet care non-profit organizations. From this foundation Joseph has added a considerable amount of experience in both professional pet sitting and pet sitting management while caring for numerous companion animals.
Ultimately, Joseph’s pet care philosophy is based on the fact that his own pets are his furry children and accordingly, he has very high expectations when it comes to their care. The same expectations that drive him to love and care for your pets like they were his own are the essence of the concierge pet service model Joseph proudly brings to the greater Longview Area through Longview Pet Sitting, LLC.
