About Melissa

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My names Melissa and I've loved animals since I was a little girl. I've worked all areas of the pet care industry from kennel to daycare to grooming. I'm an experienced former vet tech with great references and 5+ years of experience. I became a stay at home mom last September after giving birth to my beautiful boy but my love for animals didn't go away. I live in a private addition that was originally an In law suite. I have a big backyard for fun and play. There is also a fenced in dog area so dogs can roam free. I treat each and every animal like family so contact me today !

Melissa did a great job of caring for both my dog and my friend's dog (she watched both for us during a day trip to Philly). Even little Roxie was very welcoming! I had complete confidence that our dogs would have a great stay as we left for the day and that was confirmed when we picked up some tired doggos that evening!

Melissa is very diligent with the way she takes care of her pets. She was very friendly with Cora and she was very happy to stay at Melissa's place. Melissa sent us pictures of Cora and took her for walks, which we really appreciated. Cora also must have liked running around the backyard at Melissa's place.

Melissa was just great! Lucie was well cared for; walked and played well with Roxie, the family dog. Pictures and videos kept us up to date on the activities of Lucie. We felt comfortable leaving Lucie who has some digestive issues with Melissa because of her experience working as a vet assistant. Great job!
