About: Hi! My name is Destiny, I have such a strong love and passion for our fur babies and pet care is what I will always want to do long-term. I have been working on Rover for a little while but also have other previous experiences from owning various pets of my own such as dogs, cats, bunnies and fish. As well as working at a veterinary clinic, volunteering and fostering at rescues. I can’t wait to meet all of your amazing animal friends and take great care of them while you're away. I'm currently only working part-time so I'll have plenty of time to play and care for your fur babies! Days unavailable due to other obligations will be reflected upon the calendar provided through Rover. Please don't be afraid to ask either way! :) I will keep your fur babies safe by keeping in touch frequently including pictures and/or videos. Following all directions provided by the owner. Keep them active with plenty of play time as well as supervised outdoor play time, walks and if your fur baby is in need of another pup friend I do have a very friendly/social mini goldendoodle pup of my own I can bring by for some supervised playtime (he would need to be brought by to the meet and greet to ensure the safety of both pups)!
“Thank you Melissa !! Coco was definitely happy spending these two days with you and your dogs she made new friends , I will for sure contact you in the future”
“Our greyhounds had a great day at Joe's house. They were so well taken care of, and we appreciated the detailed report of how they did. They can't wait to come back.”
“Madison Foster has been taking care of our animals for several years. She is kind and wonderful. Our animals cannot contain their excitement when they see her walk in the door. She is the best care giver for our animals we have ever had!”
“Lauren has watched my animals while I have been on vacation multiple times. All of those times I was kept updated on my animals. It was nice to be able to enjoy my vacation without worrying about my fur/fin family.”
“Friendly and responsive when scheduling and communicating during my puppy’s day care visit. Savannah was even able to add in a bath at the last minute since she also does grooming. Would definitely recommend her and would use her for pet care again.”

“Elliott is a very caring individual. He is responsible, timely, and detail oriented. He has experience dog sitting for family members. He is absolutely pawfect!”
“My dog Ginger loves when Alison comes to visit. Ginger can be a challenge and oftentimes does not do great in new environments and has some anxiety. I feel completely confident in having Ginger stay with Alison. Alison is always patient and positive with her and enjoys taking her out for walks and investigating in our large yard. Ginger is a big snuggle bug and I really enjoy getting pictures of the two of them curled up on the sofa together enjoying quiet time. Knowing that Ginger is being looked after and loved has made it possible for me to take vacations without worrying that she's locked in a crate or being ignored. Alison is always flexible and puts the needs of the pet first and foremost. It is so reassuring to know that Ginger is getting the care and interaction she deserves and that allows me to not feel guilty or worry when I'm not with her. I am a true helicopter pet mom and won't just leave Ginger with anyone. Alison also took care of my previous dog Molly as well and when she passed, Alison was right there to feel the feels with me. Alison also has pets of her own and she could understand what I was going through and that meant so much to me.”

“Rosemarie has cared for my dogs before and was fantastic. She often sent pictures of my dogs while I was away which was wonderful and very thoughtful. Her dogs were great with my dogs which was nice. Rosemarie is always my first contact when looking for a pet sitter, she’d be a great fit for this.”
About: I have always had pets growing up as a child and my love for them has grown into my adulthood even more. I have a passion for learning and understanding different types of animals. My experience in Pet Care is from having my own pets and caring for family, friends and volunteering over the years I'm currently working part-times so I have extra time left to take care of beautiful fur animals. Being around dogs and cats make me happy I know very well how to handle very large dogs, especially big ones. I have received courses from very reputable German Shepherd police dog trainers

I clip nails, bathe, feed and medicate my dog, 2 cats and care for my fish!
About: I’ve been taking care of dogs and cats since I was real little maybe around 10 years old. From walking, sitting, feeding, and playing. I have about 6 months of senior care… I’m currently unemployed. So I’m available all throughout the weekday and weekends at any time you guys will need me. I’m looking into this being full time work. I have a fenced yard and 1 friendly black lab and 3 adorable cats to keep your fur baby company. If your baby needs to be crated I can do that.
“Hello, I wanted to personally recommend my girlfriend, Bailey, for the pet caregiver position at Rover. Her love for animals is unmatched, and her dedication to their well-being is truly remarkable. Bailey has an innate connection with animals that goes beyond words. She understands their needs and emotions, creating a nurturing and comforting environment for them. With experience volunteering at local shelters and as a trusted pet sitter, she has proven her reliability, professionalism, and unwavering commitment to the pets in her care. Her exceptional work ethic, strong communication skills, and continuous pursuit of knowledge in pet care set her apart. I have no doubt that she will bring joy, comfort, and peace of mind to both pets and their owners, making her an ideal candidate for the position. If you have any questions or require further information, please don't hesitate to reach out. Best regards, Doug”
