We have used Melissa several times for pet sitting and check-ins for our dog and cat. She has always been great with updates and photos + our furry members are happy and well taken care of when we return! Thanks Melissa!

Melissa did a great job with our girls. She sent me updates and pictures and gave them lots of love and snuggles.

In my free time I enjoy bike rides, hiking ...
