About Alexandra

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a huge animal lover. I have grown up with all different kinds of animals. The big debate of cat person vs dog person is truly a difficult one for me. I love cats and dogs equally. I grew up with a Rottweiler German Shepherd mix, Labs, Begals and Dalmatians. I have experience in fostering cats and taking care of them post surgeries. I have worked closely with Hoboken Feral Cats, a non-profit dedicated to getting feral and stray cats off the streets of Hoboken and surrounding areas. I have a cat of my own that I rescued and nursed back to life as a kitten.

I am here to help out with more than just dogs, I'll take care of your cat and any other pets you have.

I have known Alexandra for close to 12 years and the very first thing I noticed about her when she was still a young girl was her love for her dog and her cat. It was a deeper love than the typical child with the family pet. She took the time to care for both, giving them such unconditional love and attention.

When she became olderand had her own apartment, Alexandra began to foster kittens for an organization I volunteer for. These two munchkins were from a very sick litter but that didn't stop her. She nurtured these babies with all her love, treated their ringworm, medicated them for URIs and cleaned up diarrhea. She never complained. She decided to adopt the two nuggets and accept the big responsibility of caring for them. She transported them back forth to the vet for their vaccines and never kissed an appointment. it was heartbreaking when one got very sick with FIP. This baby girl became paralyzed and was no longer able to breathe. Throughout it all Alexandra transported her to Blue Pearl in NYC and visited her every night. When she was at the Hoboken vet, Alexandra commuted there. The day we let her go, Alexandra left work to be with her. It was such a difficult time but she showed deep compassion and responsibility. She still has her brother Finn who is wonderfully cared for. Alexandra doesn't discriminate. She loves domestic rats, yes I said rats, as much as dogs, iguanas, cats and birds. She's been exposed to them all and is the first to seek them out in someone else's home. Aside from her love of animals, she is quite responsible. She works a full time job, dedicated to her work. She is trustworthy and has strong ethical values. People have entrusted their children with her when she worked as a sitter throughout college. I highly recommend Alexandra for this pet sitting position.
