About Sara

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I am Sara, and I live on the UWS. Originally from upstate NY, I have been living in the city now for over 11 years.

Growing up, I had a rabbit and a mini dachshund as pets. Currently, I am the proud mam of two adorable guinea pigs!

My experience with animals is extensive. I began taking care of dogs and cats at a young age and by middle school I had a successful neighborhood pet-sitting service. Additionally, I attended farm camp (yes, that exists haha) from age 6-11, and at 13 years old, I started working at the same farm (as farm staff and as a counselor for the kids' day and overnight camp programs). The farm was primarily a dairy farm, home to a herd of Jersey, Guernsey, and Holstein cattle, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, guinea hens, ducks, and of course....plenty of dogs and cats. I worked there over 7 years and loved every minute of it. The responsibility and work-ethic that comes from animal husbandry is priceless - not only do I greatly value manual labor, but I also appreciate the dedication and daily grind that is intrinsic to farming and to ensuring that dependent animals' basic needs are met.

Despite living in NYC, I still manage to spend time on farms and I travel extensively throughout the U.S., visiting and helping many friends/family that have different animals. Most recently (in August), I worked on a goat dairy in Missouri, which was a wonderful experience.

Since I live with multiple roommates and our landlord has a strict pet policy, I am unfortunately unable to host any pets in my home. However, I commute via bicycle and it is quite easy for me to get to places around the city, so I am happy to come to your home and take care of your pets. Sometimes, this is even better because then the animal(s) get to stay in the comfort of their home and don't experience the stress of a new environment, coupled with the absence of their owner!
I am a very active person - so I look forward taking dogs out for long walks and playing with them!

I prefer that we schedule services a week in advance (as specified), but I know that emergencies happen and sometimes you need somebody last minute. I am happy to occasionally provide last-minute services, especially since I have a somewhat flexible work schedule and my mode of transportation is quick!

Most importantly, I have a deep respect and love for all animals. I look forward to meeting your creatures and you can rest assured that they will be in fabulous hands!
