Melissa is beyond amazing. She gave my kitties such good care and was in touch with me about all the details, especially on unexpected "finds". She is a gem and I am thrilled to have found her!

Thank you Melissa for taking care of Gingi. I am so happy we found you. Gingi enjoyed your company, plus I appreciate you picking up the mail, and fixing the living room after Gin made a mess from playing all day in the living room.

Melissa was a wonderful pet sitter. She kept in touch with me throughout her time with my dog and cat and did not hesitate to contact me with questions and updates. I will definitely use her again in the future.

Experienced & Special Needs Care

I've had pets for most of my life, though only started caring for them around 9 or 10. Since then I've taken care of my own dogs as well as those of neighbors who have gone away.

I go to UCF full time for Communication and Conflict, so I do have specific hours for when I can work, and ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I would like to know if they're house trained and if they have a tendency to bite/attack new people, especially if I need to administer an oral medication. If you have a schedule for them, I'd like to know that as well, also if you have treats and if I have permission to give them.
