Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rebecca Roa and I am twenty-three years old. I am currently a Mental Health Counseling graduate student at Gallaudet Univeristy. I am studying to become an Animal Assisted Therapist and I volunteer with People. Animals. Love. (PAL) as a Pet Visiting Team with my two year old Yorkshire, Rocco. I also have a white cat and two plus sized Maine Coon kittens all of which were all rescued from the backyard of Gallaudet University! I also rescued Skittles who is a white cat with blue in one eye and gold in the other. He's a special kitty. He has what's called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Basically what this means is he has low coordination skills. He walks as if he just came home straight from the bar. ;) Don't worry! He is not in pain and is able to live a normal life.
I have experience working in a variety of pet sitting company in the DC/VA/MD metro area. I am able to do mid-day walks, pet sitting, overnights, and taxi visits (to and from the vet/groomers/etc).
***Please note that the rate is $15 per visit (ie: if you want two visits per day, that comes to $30). The website has it automatically set per day.
I am adopted by four rescued cats (two short-haired *one with Cerebellar Hypoplaysia* and two Maine Coons) and a Yorkshire Terrier.
I volunteer with People. Animals. Love. (PAL)
I have worked for two different pet sitting companies.
I do not have any breed preferences. I would like to know beforehand the
Location of litter box, food, treats, medicines
Routes (for dogs)

Emergency medical information
I do have reliable transportation. I own a car.
I am very comfortable in administering medications. I have a variety of experience such as using an inhaler, giving pills (by mouth, in food, pocket pills, etc), administering cream in ears/body, eye drops, etc.
I am able to bring in the mail, water your plants, leave a detailed journal (notes about your pet(s) for each visit), send you an email with an attachment of your pet, and if you have an alley cat you tend to feed (some do this) - I am able to do that as well.
For mid-day walks, they usually last about thirty minutes. I am able to accommodate to your needs whether you want the visits to be shorter or longer. For overnights, I pet from 8pm-8am. The rate for overnights $45. This is negotiable!
