I’ve known Melissa for at least 10 years now as a friend, neighbor and fellow animal lover. To say she loves animals is an understatement! She is absolutely passionate about them. She has several dogs of her own who are treated like human members of the family - not ‘pets’. In fact she treats other people’s pets the same way. She loves on every dog that she crosses paths with and they all love ...

We can't say enough great things about Melissa! She has been taking care of our 8 cats when we travel for several years now. She knows exactly what we need done and goes over and above what we ask. If there is an issue while we are gone, Melissa contacts us immediately. She treats our cats like her own pets.
We have become good friends with Melissa and her family, and go to the same ...

Melissa is the only person we let take care of our furbabies when we go out of town. She loves our dogs and treats them as well as we do! She lets them out to handle business, plays with them, and gives needed meds to our senior. She is also easily accessible by phone or text if you want to check in for an update on your babies. I highly recommend!

Huge dog lover! Home full time.

I have been dog and cat sitting for several years. I love all animals but dogs truly have my heart. I am interested in pet care because I really enjoy being able to love on people‘s pets while they are away. It makes me feel like I’m making a difference in their lives while their family is away, and helping their humans at the same time. I don’t just go and feed ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I do not have a breed preference. I love them all! What I would like to know before being hired is if the dog has any aggressions towards people or any type of anxieties. I like to know what their normal schedule is like. I also like to know if they have aggressions around other animals. I also like to know if they are allowed to have treats because I do love bringing dog treats with me. In addition I would like to know if they have any type of food allergies or allergies of any kind.
