Melissa has a huge heart for animals! I’ve known her for a very long time. She has always taken care of her own and others pets with a lot of love and compassion.

I am a stay at home mother to 3 awesome dogs; Madison, Yeti and Lola, 2 cats; BB and Macey, a guinea pig named Squeekers and lots of fish. All rescues of course except for the fish.
I am a retired Veterinary Technician with 16 years experience. No medical condition that requires treatment while you are away scares me. My experience allows me to recognize most health conditions that could arise while you are away ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Likes and dislikes? Routine schedules? Health conditions? Anything that frightens him/her. I would like to meet you at least once prior to your departure so that I can get to know your baby.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

My goal is routine. Whatever your baby is use to doing with you is what I will do. Walks, fetch, scratches, treats, sit in my lap, hide n seek, brushing, kisses and hugs; I’ve got it covered! After all, I am filling some important shoes while you are away!
