I have always had love and compassion for all animals. As a child I had every kind of pet I could talk my dad into getting, including cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, turtles, fish, iguanas, guinea pigs, rabbits, and frogs. I never got tired of taking care of them. That mentality followed me through into adulthood. When I moved into my own place, I made sure it was pet friendly so I could take my pets with me.
When I was 22 I started working for an animal hospital where I ran the front office. I took in as much knowledge of veterinary medicine as I could. I learned how to do a lot of the technician's duties as well, including medicating, restraining, injections, and vaccinations. I also gained a knowledge of the many different dog and cat breeds, spaying and neutering, dental disease, different medications and their uses.
Along the way I have adopted a few strays, fostered a few, and found some homes for a few as well. I also bottle fed and fostered kittens for Citizens For Scottsdale Strays. Strays and homeless pets seem to always find their way to me and I am happy to help them find loving, forever homes.
While working at animal hospitals I gained a few long time pet sitting clients and became boarding manager where I decided it was my calling to offer experienced, compassionate, and qualified pet sitting for all animals, including exotics, seniors, and pets with special needs. I know how important your pets are to you. I will strive to keep them as comfortable, loved, and safe as possible while you are away so you can enjoy yourself without worrying.
