About Melissa

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs are our life and our pack welcomes new dogs all the time!
I have had a love for animals all my life but living in apartments kinda prevented us from ever adding a pup to our family. In 2010, we moved into a house and our first little boy (Dawson) joined our family! Over the next few years, we have adopted 5 others (YaYa, Charlie, Chewy, Mitsy & Lillie). But we felt like we needed to do more.
Early 2012, we started fostering small breed dogs for our local Humane Society. We cared for and found forever homes for almost 100 pups! During that time, we have done it all! We have taken care of dogs with skin issues, eye issues, epilepsy, giving medication in pill/liquid/inhaler form, aggressive, incontinent, tri-pods, recovery from countless surgeries. You name it, we most likely have experience with it. We received compliments all the time from the families that adopted our foster dogs. We have several past foster dogs that we still babysit when their owners go away on vacation.
Then someone told me about DogVacay...
I have been with DogVacay since Dec 2015 and absolutely love it! Every pup has their own personality (like lil' humans). And even though I am not old enough to have grand-children, I like to think of them as my grand-pups. I get to love and spoil them while they are here! Then they get to go home when Mom & Dad come pick them up and look forward to the next time they come to visit me :)
We would love to open our home to your babies! We promise to love and care for them just as they were our own!

For my clients...
If my calendar shows that I am Booked or Unavailable. Don't freak out yet (lol) ... PLEASE message me from DogVacay or most of you have my cell number as well. We will figure something out :)

We had a family emergency and Melissa was able to help us out at the last minute. The last thing I needed was to be worried about our dog. Melissa took such great care of our Max. He even made a new friend with Melissa's cat. I highly recommend Melissa if you are looking for someone to truly love on your pet!

I truly can't say enough wonderful things about Melissa. She is so kind and loving. I knew Max was happy because when I showed up, he was so excited to see me but also backed up to Melissa for some extra rubs. Your furbaby will be in excellent care with Melissa!

Melissa did a great job taking care of Sparky. She kept us updated with texts and videos. Would definitely recommend her and we will use her again in the future.
