Shelley is the absolute BEST ! She has stayed with our pets, and our house, on several occasions and we couldn't be happier with her and the care she brings to our world. She really loves our pets and it shows in the way she is with them. Simply not an option to use anyone else. Thanks Shelley!

Thank you so much Robin - yes, I absolutely love your pets and enjoy seeing them and taking care of them ...

The wonderful Shelley house sat my three dogs, Gus, Fern and Bubba while my husband and I were in Montauk, NY for our son's wedding. She sent pictures and updates throughout the week-end! I was so relaxed and happy at the wedding not having to worry about my other "kids" at home in Austin! She is kind, responsible, considerate and just a doll in general! I can't wait to go away again! Thank you Shelley ...

Central/Downtown Dog Lover

I'm Shelley, life-long animal lover. I have always been very involved in rescue and animal rights nonprofit organizations. I had my first dog, Muffin, when I was 6 and have pretty much always had dogs since.

I have extensive experience caring for my own animals and others. I am a registered, approved foster care provider with both Austin Pets Alive and Austin Dog Rescue.

I am available for keeping your pets in my condo overnight ...

What Shelley would like to know about your dog

I am available for keeping your pets in my condo overnight (if they are friendly with cats and other dogs), or traveling to your Central Austin home to care for your pets (within 5 miles of downtown). I don't have any breed preferences, but for keeping a pet in my home smaller/medium size dogs are best as I am in a condo. I would like to know about the dog's personality, any medical needs, any special needs or things to know, etc.

Please note that I no longer offer pet sitting services for puppies. All pet clients must be over one year of age (or close to it).
