My years of professional experience caring for and training a wide variety of animals (exotic and domestic) including 7 years experience as an Estate Manager-caring for an 8,000 square foot home and gardens; a variety of animals- horses, a zonkey, llamas, sheep, goats, chickens, cats and dogs, and my experience as a vet tech, gives you the peace of mind to let you relax (or focus on work) while you’re away from home, knowing your much-loved animals are getting top notch care.
I will care for your animals as if they were my own. Your pets require more that just a quick peek and a check of their food and water. They need loving attention and mental stimulation to keep from being stressed or bored while you’re away. Even on my short visits, I give each animal some personal attention.
I can play with or walk your pets, turnout horses (exercise for additional fee), collect eggs, clean litter boxes and poop scoop your yard. Additional perks-bring in mail, water indoor plants, fill bird feeders, bring trash bin/can out or in, turn lights off and on (if requested).
I am happy to care for “different” pets too! I love parrots, legal exotic animals, reptiles, amphibians, even arachnids and insects!
I am comfortable working with animals with less than perfect behavior. I have experience medicating animals including pilling, injections, giving fluids, bandaging, etc.
I will provide daily telephone, text or email updates. You can even request a video chat with your pet!
