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.

We own an Australian Shepherd who was a rescue, and have opened our home to three amazing cats whom have been rescued off the streets and given a 2nd chance.
