Hello, My name is Angie and I am an animal lover. I have always gravitated towards animals when they are nearby and I can’t resist trying to connect with animals whenever possible. My first real animal connection happened when at age 7 my parents got us a cat! We had our family cat Smudge for over 20 years. So of course I then got a cat of my own, Gracie, who I shared a home with for over 11 years. She was an amazing little social kitty who passed away in December 2019 due to illness. During her final years I administered oral medications daily so am familiar with medications if required. I have also administered daily pills in the past but am unable to do injections. As of April 2020 I also have a new kitty in my life named Nala.
I volunteered at a cat shelter in New Westminster every other weekend for over 14 years. This is the shelter where I got my Gracie. Since I have volunteered for many years I am comfortable and familiar with a variety of cats. During my shifts at the shelter I fed, cleaned litter boxes, did laundry and monitored their health. I also got to play and cuddle with many of the cats. I loved to give them special food and treats while they wait for a worthy person to take them home. Unfortunately the shelter closed in October 2019 so now I am searching for a new volunteer opportunity that involves animals.
I have pet sit for friends before and I know it can be challenging to find someone to look after a pet when taking holidays. I personally struggled to leave my kitty when I went on vacation and only wanted to leave her with very trustworthy and loving people. That is why I became an occasional pet sitter. I want to offer pet owners someone who will take the best care of their beloved kitty when they are away. I offer a daily stop in for minimum of 30 minutes at your home to look in on your cat(s) (feed, scoop litter, change water, cuddle and anything else required). I am also happy to water plants and pick up your mail while you are away.
I can also offer dog walking but only in evenings or weekends as I work a typical office schedule during the day on weekdays. I have family with a medium sized dog named Chummy (a golden doddle) who is super sweet and I walk everyday when we are visiting the Comox valley where she lives. Therefore I have experience with dog walking and am comfortable around all sized dogs. I can pick up your dog and take for a minimum 30 minute walk- usually around your neighbourhood.
I prefer to work within 10 km of my home near royal oak skytrain (basically Burnaby and New Westminster area but sometimes into East Vancouver). I am also open to further distances if requested. Looking forward to meeting you and your furry family member(s).
Angie was great with Siggi! We will happily have her look after Siggi again.
Angie comes to our house and looks after our Kitty while we are away. She's amazing and cares about our pets as much as we do. I really appreciate the photos and updates that she sends. It gives us peace of mind that our furry friends are taken care of.
