About Alberta

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Currently boarding small pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, etc. Experienced caregiver of small animals who have unique and different needs than dogs or cats. (Nightly rate is for the first pet(s) in same cage, if more than one, rate will be custom quoted.)

For the safety of my client's pets and my own I cannot board any animal that shows symptoms or is being treated for a contagious condition such as pasteurella or e.cuniculi, mites, lice, etc.

I received a certificate in Veterinary Assisting from Middlesex Community College. I was a volunteer caregiver and foster home with the MSPCA Nevins Farm in Methuen for 8 years and a member of their Small Animal Task Force. This is a group of hand picked volunteers that handle the more difficult cases at the shelter like sick, injured, abused, abandoned or neglected animals.

I am familiar with special needs and senior pets. I have worked with a variety of animals at the shelter including rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, degus, chinchillas, hedgehogs, and know how to properly handle them. I have also adopted my own small animal rescues.

I am a former volunteer with Greyhound Pets of America as a foster home and adoption counselor. I've fostered for Italian Greyhound Rescue New England and Animal Soup Rescue and Sanctuary, specializing in senior and special needs dogs. I am also a Dog Daycare Counselor. Currently the proud parent of 3 adopted dogs. Greyhound Logan, Poodle Hannah and Chihuahua Petey. We also have a Black Star hen, Isabella, two rescued ring neck Doves, Olive and Hope and a rescued special needs Gecko Strax.

Alberta was absolutely awesome. She has a ton of experience taking care of rabbits and has an excellent understanding of their specific needs and potential issues. I felt completely comfortable leaving my rabbits with her- one of which has had GI problems in the past- reassured and confident that she was well aware and experienced of addressing any problems he might have. They were with her for two weeks- thankfully with no issues- and I was not worried for a single moment. She sent photos and updates regularly, communicated promptly, and was very nice and professional! I'm definitely bringing my bunnies back to her next time we're out of town!!

Alberta did a great job caring for our two guinea pigs. Process of coordinating pick up and drop off time was easy, piggies and their equipment were packed up and ready to go home at arranged time. Received updates via text as promised during our vacation
