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)!
“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.”
“My dog Magnum loved his doggy daycare trip! He came home and slept for hours. I would recommend Julie and Joe to any of my friends with dogs!”
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.
“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.”
About: I have a Bachelor’s in Zoology. I was a zookeeper for 8yrs, vet assistant for 2yrs, manager of a boarding/daycare facility, manager of a veterinary clinic kennel and manager of a dog rescue. I’ve done it all! Medicate. Groom. Feed. Socialize. Exercise. Train. I am currently in the process of finding a new job, so my schedule is very flexible. My two daughters are in school full time also, so my days are very open. I have a fenced yard where I socialize my dog with other dogs regularly. I clip nails, bathe, feed and medicate my dog, 2 cats and care for my fish!

“Bella had a relaxing time with Natalie! She was well taken care of and tired when I picked her up! Couldn’t ask for more :)”
“Gus and Gracie were treated like they were their dogs. Right at home.”
“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've owned dogs my whole life and have been studying them pretty much since I learned to read. I worked at a pet store for a year and a half, volunteered at a animal rescue for 3 years and have been doing services like these for 6 years. I also studied dog grooming and dog training/behavior. My schedule I try to keep pretty open for people to accommodate what they need. You name it and I'm sure I'll be free, message me anytime! I have a 6 foot fenced in yard and a dog pool for the dogs in the summer, I'm less than 5 minutes away from most things and there's also a dog park near me. I do have an in ground pool as well.
“Holly is very compassionate with all animals. She is loving and attentive. Our cat absolutley loves her and he doesn't like anyone! I highly recommend her for the care of your pet!”
“Jeff is clearly an animal lover! His eyes light up and he smiles big for every dog he meets! Jeff has cared for my dogs and has also helped a local rescue foster dogs as well. He is attentive to their needs and is always willing to take them for a walk, and play as much as they want! He has also on occasion taken my dogs to the vet if I ever couldn't make the trip. Jeff is always on speed dial for whenever we need pet care! He goes above and beyond for you and your animal without a doubt!”
“Anika has an extraordinary ability to make pets and people feel deeply loved and cared for. She is kind, diligent and an excellent communicator. She takes exceptional care of her dog and other peoples’. Her compassion makes her one of the few people I’d hire to care for my pups. You can rest assured that your fur baby is well taken care of with her.”
“Our Hanna was happy and we noticed that she had a lot of fun. She also interacted with other pets, this is great for Hanna learning to socialize.”
“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.
