Angelly is a stellar pet/home sitter. She was willing to meet us and our pups prior to our booking, and knew we wanted to work with her when the dogs took a liking to her quickly. Communication was smooth and easy with "updates" and pictures. I would highly recommend her!

This was our first full weekend trip away from our four senior cats for a long time. From the beginning, Jade made us feel confident that our fur babies were in good hands. She sent pictures and gave reports everyday. Two of our cats require meds including insulin shots 2x daily. We were so pleased when we returned home to find our kitties looking happy and healthy. Jade is going to come back in a few weeks for our ten day trip. We know our fur babies will be in good hands which gives the gift of “peace of mind.”

Kaya did a great job, housesitting and taking care of our two dogs. She was flexible and friendly, and sent us daily updates. We were gone about a week, out of the country, and had no concerns whatsoever about the dogs or the house.

Demitria did a great job taking care of our dog- she was able to watch him pretty last minute and was flexible with us when our plans changed. She got to our house right on time, which was very appreciated! She was happy to take him on a walk and just chill at home with him. He takes a little while to warm up to people but Demitria was patient with him and was able to get him to trust her!

Anna was really attentive. She provided daily updates that included pictures. She made sure that Spirit was well taken care of while I was away. I was hesitant to book her considering her previous review. But she was very matter of fact with me and why she received that review and she more than made up for it with me. I would definitely book her again for any future services.

About: I have volunteered at Animal Protective League for nearly 12 years. I am a lover of all animals big and small. Several family members have relied on me to care for their dogs and other pets during that time. Most of my experience is centered around cats as I foster kittens for my local animal shelter, but I did grow up with several dogs. I may not have a dog now, but I will do my best to care for each and every fur-baby that I meet. I am partially employed to a small business that gives me work opportunities when they need extra help. Unfortunately those opportunities are mostly seasonal so I won't receive any work until spring (if COVID doesn't get any worse). They do let me know if they need me several weeks in advance, and my open schedule can be adjusted accordingly if I am given a regulated schedule by someone who wants me to regularly walk/check in with their pet during the day. I have experience house-sitting and caring for my employer's animals. I make a daily schedule for my duties and keep in touch with my employer's in case that schedule changes or if I have any questions/comments about

Shelbie was absolutely amazing with our girls. She even managed the chaos of having workers at our home, which was above and beyond. She walked the girls, who are both big dogs, and had spectacular communication throughout. If I could give her more stars I would. Highly recommend her.

Christine is warm and friendly and loves animals. Her home is clean, spacious, and has a nice sized backyard that is partially fenced. When she cares for my animals she treats them like her own. When needing a place to take your pet while you are away, there is no where better than Christine’s house!

April has always been a dog lover and has recently been raising a pup of her own, Bernie! She's always taking him on adventures and loves being around and taking care her fur babies. Not only does she have Bernie a mini aussie, but she has two cats as well. She'll treat your own pet just like hers and give your pet 100% TLC!
