Hello! I'm an avid pet lover and animal activist. I write a column about animal welfare in a monthly print magazine, lobby on capital hill for animal related legislation, have adopted many rescued pets, and use social marketing to highlight current animal issues and animals in need of adoption. Needless to say, I love animals!
I can host any species of animal you have (cats, horses and farm animals I would pay visits in their homes). I have owned and trained horses, dogs and birds for over 30 years-though I'm not a licensed trainer and I have rescued-rehabilitated-released several wild animals-also unofficially (soon to be officially).
I have had 5 cats, 8 dogs, 12 birds (two were rescued Magpies that I rehabilitated and returned to the wild), 4 horses, chickens, 2 rats, 4 guinea pigs, 3 rabbits, lizards, Tarantulas and more at any given time during my life (now only one sweet 11 year old dog and one bird high in a cage). I can deal with any animal, even those with health or behavioral issues as long as they are sweet to my old girl.
I am also able to help with special needs animals; having a senior pug in diapers for two years, unable to go up/down stairs and with a myriad of health issues taught me some helpful skills. I also adopted a senior yellow lab who was blind, deaf, arthritic and senile when she was abandoned in her old days, she flourished with me until she passed away at the grand old age of 16. I have a great deal of compassion for these old sweeties.
There would be lot's of cuddles, treats, heart to heart discussions & some unofficial training (if desired).
Lastly, I want you to know that dog sitting is not my career, I do it because I love to be around animals. Thank you for finding me, I'm so excited to meet your furry-or scaly-or feathered pal!
