Melissa is compasionate and has a genuine love for all animals so it’s not unusual to see a stray or neglected animal gravitate to her. She has taken many animals in and cared for them until she found them good homes. She is the best mommy to her own dogs. She has taken care of animals since she was young and has worked with many types and sizes of dogs. She has a friendly ...

Retired Policewoman loves animals

I am familiar in caring for pets with special needs as I have 3 blind and deaf poodles of my own. I also volunteer at the worlds largest dog farm in Costa Rica, known at Terretorio De Zaguates ( Land of ...

When Melissa watches your pet

If your dog likes to swim, I have a nice size swimming pool with a 4 foot in length shallow pool step , normally used for putting lounge chairs in the shallow end, but my dogs have found this area to be a neat place to lay down and get cooled off after a long walk. I have a few parks in my neighborhood and I am within 2 miles of the Oxbow Hiking Trails that lead to the Port St. Lucie River. This is a great area to bring dogs for a day of fun. If you have a favorite dog park, I am more than willing to drive your pup to that location for some play time as well.
