“Lynne has been taking care of my 2 labradoodles since they were puppies (about 5 years). Lynne is absolutely fantastic- so caring and kind, extremely dependable, and my dogs get SO excited to see her. Lynne comes to walk my dogs weekly and also does overnite care for them. She is easy to communicate with and very responsive. I recommend her to everyone I know!”

About: At home, I have two 3-year old 80-lb Plott Hound mixes that are super energetic! We got the twins when they were 10 weeks old, so I was able to get experience caring for puppies that are not yet house trained. My 14-year old lab-mix recently crossed the rainbow bridge, and during his last 5 years, I was able to care for him as a senior. I have 1 cat that is over 14 years old, and she is and always has been very timid. However, I was able to foster 3 kittens for a couple of weeks, this allowed me to gain hands-on experience with playful kittens! I have stayed overnight at my family and friend’s houses to care for their animals in the past and as a college student at UMass, I love to spend my free time with animals. During December and early January, I will be free 24/7 to give care to your pet or drop in whenever needed! I will be completing an online class that can be taken from anywhere at anytime, allowing for your pet to be my number one priority. In the scenario where I will be boarding your pet at my house, we will stay at my Amherst house, where there are no other pets. I can drive the pets in my car to and from Amherst. There are many walking trails near my house in both Marlboro and Amherst. I am also willing to stay at your house if that is where your pet feels most comfortable. I have stayed overnight to care for animals in the past for my sister and aunts. If there is a yard and we can play outside, I am willing to spend the majority of my day tiring them out with fetch. I will also walk the dog around the neighborhood a couple of times throughout the day.
“Brielle is very sweet and caring. My 7 year old Malshi loves going on walks and playing with Brielle. She gets so excited everytime she knows Brielle is coming to walk her! Very responsible and respectful young lady.”
About: I've taken care of my two cats since I've been young, and I have experience administering insulin shots for one of them and oral medication for the other. I also have taken care of many of my friends dogs feeding and walking them when they go on vacation! I am a full time student but I have flexible availability. I am available on weekends and I love walking dogs and taking them on adventures! I am very active and enjoy spending time with animals. I am very patient and kind with animals and I love spending time around them. I am unable to house them as it does not comply with my renting guidelines, but I have a car to make visits!
About: I absolutely adore animals. I was lucky enough to train service dogs while I was in college. I am reliable, you can feel good leaving them in my care. Currently, my full-time job has a varying schedule so we would just need to talk about it. If the hours are decided in advance I can make it work. I love dogs. I am happy to discuss this with you. Then together we can make a plan based on your fur baby's individual needs.
“I've been Jessica's roommate for about two years now, and I can confidently say that she is the most responsible and mature friend I've had. She's an incredibly conscientious and caring person, she adores animals and loves to take care of them, and I can guarantee your pet(s) will be in great hands with her!”
About: I’ve been taking care of family pets when they would go on vacation. Some of the responsibilities included were walking the dogs, feeding any animals, giving them baths and playing with them. Within the past year more friends and neighbors have reached out and offered me to take care of their animals. I do have a part time job but it still leaves plenty of time for me to play the the pets and take care of them! I have a fenced in yard and a friendly older dog to keep them company. I will always resort to the best way your dog or pets need to be cared for.
“Sofia is a responsible and loving pet caregiver! I highly recommend her. She is extremely reliable and will treat your pet as if it’s her own.”
About: To speak a little bit about myself, my family has two cats and a dog who I have grown up with for majority of my life. So I am very used to living with animals. I also am known as a lover of animals. Personally, I have my own cat back at home who is the brown one pictured on my profile. I’ve had Kiwi for about three years now. I have also pet sat for my neighbors going on multiple years now. Doing so I have cared for their fish, dog, geckos, and cats. So I would say that I have a versatile, but also well-rounded experience caring for animals. I also am very receptive to specific instructions, so if your pet is in need of specific care, I am happy to help how I can. I am a full-time college student and I have classes on Monday to Friday from 11 AM to 3 PM. Before or after these times & also on the weekends, I’m incredibly flexible. Please keep in mind that I will be taking a bus to come visit your pet, so notifying me of services needed in advance is important to me! As a college student in a dorm, it is my preference to come to client’s homes and care for their pets there. I am also open to walking pets in the general neighborhood as well. I am very experienced entertaining, walking, feeding, and generally caring for both cats and dogs. That being said, I am open to working with any other animals, as I also have experience working with birds, aquatic animals and reptiles.
