Hi! Welcome to my profile, I am Shawn & I offer pet sitting in YOUR HOME. Where your pets can remain at home with their familiar and comfortable surroundings without the added stress of going to a boarding kennel or being taken with or dropped off elsewhere. I am a mom to two girls ages 20 & 16 and a wife to my husband for 25+ years. We own an Australian Shepherd who is a rescue, and have opened our home to three amazing cats whom have been rescued off the streets and given a 2nd chance. (actually my own neighborhood - people move & left their pets behind) I also am active in basic obedience & Agility (for fun). I am a professional pet sitter and have been for well over 25 years.

Turning lights on-off. Just sitting with your pet and giving attention. Your pets are treated as MY pets (family) while you are away. They will be spoiled and have lots of love & care while you are gone.
