Steal Your Heart Exotics & Cattery

I'm Tonya Carrillo and I am the proud owner of Steal Your Heart Exotics. I have been in the animal industry for over 35 years and have worked as a vet tech 25 plus years. My background is full of experience and knowledge in many different species of animals from small rats to large equine.

It's important you know that I love what I do and I strive for an above and beyond breeding program and cattery. I want only the best for all of my “kids” but most importantly I want them to be happy and healthy.

While I started my career with animals around seven years of age, I eventually became involved with Veterinary Medicine, emergency animal care and one of the largest animal shelters on the West Coast.

We are a licensed USDA facility and accredited with Missouri Conservation Department. We are inspected yearly and keep up with all proper guidelines needed in order to provide the best for all animals in our care.

Steal Your Heart Exotics & Cattery is registered with TICA, WCF, NAPR and AFC and we offer a 2yr health guarantee against genetics only on kittens that leave our facility.

While we recommend in-person pick-up, shipping/delivering your new companion is available. Please look through out site and make sure to visit the "Frequently Asked Questions" page for answers you might be needing.

My Experience

My past experiences with animals of all types created a passion within me. That passion enables me to breed animals safely, humanely and lovingly. I'm excited to share the results of that passion with you and your family in the form of the perfect companion animal for your unique situation.
