I'm Michelle. I recently moved to Orange after spending 15 years in Mission Viejo and am looking forward to building my client base in Northern Orange County. I enjoy my own two cats, Fuzzy and Amber. While I only have cats because of my schedule, I have grown up with dogs and cats all of my life. I have volunteered in the past with several animal rescues, helping with vaccinations and fostering, as well as walking services and adoption events. Some of my favorite things include taking a nice brisk walk, yoga, ballroom dancing, and enjoying time with family and friends, as well as their pets!

Michelle was wonderful to work with. We contacted her just a day and a half prior to departure and she messaged us back right away. She was able to come over the next day for our meet-and-greet and took notes about our animal's needs. We have three dogs and two cats and she was able to care for all of them including litter box clean up. One of our dogs has to take a pill twice a day and our Bichon is on a special diet and I felt confident that she would properly care for them. We use a "pet cam" when we're away because our daughters miss their pets and enjoy watching them. In the past we were able to tell that our pet sitter wasn't coming at the agreed upon times which was difficult for our pets, as far as going outside, and stressful for us knowing they weren't being care for properly. With Michelle the animals were walked, let out, put away at night etc, exactly as Michelle explained that they would be. Our pets were happy campers when we returned home. In the past we haven't felt comfortable traveling because we didn't have a responsible pet sitter that we could trust with out animals. Now that we've found Michelle we'll be traveling more. A great experience all the way around. Thank you Michelle!

Michelle was very friendly when she came to our house to meet both our dog and cat. I must have missed on her profile that she takes care of pets in their own home, which actually turned out to be a great plus! She was trustworthy, flexible and responsible. We will definitely use her services again!

Michelle did an excellent job of caring for our babies for the second time. She would text us pictures of them and give us an update showing that she was there and how the babies were. We highly recommend her for her consistency and good communication. Thank you Michelle for being such a good fur baby sitter!

Michelle responded quickly to initial inquiry and stayed in close communication. The meet and greet went very well. Our fur babies immediately took a liking to her. During our time away Michelle sent us pictures of our babies and updated us with their activity. This type of care gave us piece of mind while we were away. We would definitely call Michelle again to look after our fur kids.

Michelle was awesome as usual. Thank you for taking care of my baby!
I had to be out of town with a new puppy, which I had only one week. I was very nervous about leaving her. Michelle was awesome and took very good care of my baby. She was prompt everyday and performed all duties as described.
I would highly recommend Michelle and will use her again for my doggy care!

Michelle was excellent! I feel totally confident leaving her with my puppy and will definitely call her 1st next time I need her to care for Jesse!
Michelle is obviously an animal lover. Treats Luci Pearl as one of her own. She gets 5 paws up from Luci Pearl and me.
This was my first occasion to use Michelle. My pug was very positive about her. She texted and emailed me updates several times a day, plus photos. The house was in good order. I have two more occasions to use her.
