Hello and welcome to Stevi's Animal House!
I have been an animal lover my whole life. I have been a cat and dog owner throughout my life. All growing up, I tested my mom's patience by rescuing stray cats and dogs and then trying to find their owners. When I couldn't find their owners, I refused to give them to the pound. So, we had a 3 cats and a dog. My grandma had 2 cats and 2 dogs because of me. :)
Currently, we have 2 dogs and 2 cats. If I had my way, I would have a house full of cats and dogs but we have to draw the line somewhere. So, I figure helping others in need of a loving and trustworthy pet sitter is the next best thing . :)
Over the years, I pet sat for many friends and family members. It seems if anyone needs a pet or house sitter, they call me. I have pet sat for dogs, cats, rabbits and fish.
Our dogs are very friendly. We have a 13 year old German Shepherd who is so kind and gentle. His name is Cain and he was probably the biggest help in training our now 5 year old Chihuahua mix. Meshka is not a typical Chihuahua as she is full size and 14lbs. She is so sweet. She doesn't bark and she just loves other dogs. Our two cats Peanut and Lulu are also dog lovers. All four of our furry kids have become buddies with the many dogs we have had stay with us.
We have a fenced yard. And the best thing about that is...I work from home every day! So, the doggies get plenty of outside play time and get almost 24/7 love! If dogs were to be left unattended it would be an hour or two at most while I ran errands. Otherwise, I am almost always home. I have requested at least 1 day notice for bookings. However, it doesn't hurt to check with me if you need same day. There is a chance I could accommodate that. I am willing to visit cats and other pets at the clients home and provide the care that the owner requests. I also get mail and water plants if needed.
I just thought I would put my name out there and offer my services because I know not everyone isn't as fortunate as me. I have been lucky enough to have my family live within a couple miles of me and they are also animal lovers. So, I have always had someone I know I can trust and who is loving to my pets care for them if I am gone. However, if I didn't have them, I too would want someone who loved animals as much as I do to watch my pets. I promise to take care of your pets with as much love as I do my own. I look forward to hearing from you!
