Jenessa helped us in a pinch with house-sitting. She did a great job - house was clean and doggie was happy when we got home!

Our dog Kenny was so happy with Jenessa and hated to see her go. Our home was in good order and communication was excellent.

Poko loved her stay with Jenessa. Jenessa is calm, nurturing, and loves animals. We'll definitely use her again. Thanks, Jenessa, for keeping us updated on how Poko was doing while we were away.

Furry Friends Make The Best Friends

I am a loving, caring, responsible mother and animal caretaker. Animals have always been a part of my life. I am able to control all dog breeds, sizes and personalities. We have a cat, rabbit, hamster and two gold fish in our family. My daughter has two Cocker Spaniels at her grandmother's house. I am happy to care for all kinds of animals and I'm looking forward to meeting you and your furry family members.
