This was my first time using Rover so I knew I wanted an experienced, reputable and caring person to take care of my two cats. Vanessa was all of that! She made my trip stress-free since I knew my kitties were well taken care of, and I appreciated the photos and updates. Everything was nice and easy and I would definitely recommend Vanessa to anyone!

So very happy with Vanessa and River! I was concerned about leaving my rag puppy for the first time when I had to go to work. Vanessa come for. Meet and greet before the actual day, youri took to her right away.
Getting the card after the visits to see Youri playing and getting pets in the backyard is a huge relief
Many thanks to Vanessa
