About Ivonne

Hello pawrents :),

Welcome to my page ! My name is Ivonne and my love for animals started as a young child. I’ve had many fur babies ranging from bunnies, goats, a pig and dogs :). I've had a passion for rescuing fur babies since I was about 5 yrs old and successfully snuck many homeless animals home ; luckily for me my parents are animals lovers and allowed me to keep them . They could also tell you endless stories of all the creative explanations I gave them as to how an animal moved in to our house by him/herself ;) , haha. As an adult, I’ve had dogs and bunnies, mostly rescued, through adoption or from unwanted homes. My oldest rabbit passed away at the age of 12 yrs old following the passing of his mate from old age . I’ve been pet sitting for about 14 yrs now and I love it! I’ve had the pleasure to care for some sweet, loving, cuddly fur babies.

My promise to you : As a pawrent I understand the anxiety that can come from leaving your fur baby with a caregiver. Allow me to reassure you that I will treat your fur baby as he or she was my own. I will give her/ him plenty of love and cuddles , playtime , exercise and make sure we have a good time together while you are gone. I will follow your guidelines, I will follow their schedule, I will send you pictures, Skype you or send you videos .

I offer services for dogs, cats and rabbits :)

About my place : I live in a large apartment close to many parks. I offer walking services ( prices are for up to 30 minutes) daily visits for feedings, cuddles and companionship as well as housesitting . The pictures posted are of some of the fur babies I’ve had the pleasure to care for and I’m happy to provide you with letters of references and contacts. Also I have a valid reliability background check from the federal government as well as vulnerable sector check which was completed July 2021, was I have my CPR & first aid certificate for both humans and pets.

Please note , if you’d like to schedule more then 1 walk per day , two or three separate requests need to be submitted for the same dates :) accordingly. Thank you !

We recently had Ivonne stay with our two girls for four nights and we already can't wait to book with her again! She took great care of both our girls and our home, even making sure to clean up and leave everything spotless before she left. She gave our girls tons of love and attention while we were gone and they seemed very comfortable with her (which says a lot because one of our girls is hesitant with new people but slept with Ivonne every night). She also sent many updates, pictures and videos to put us at ease which was very much appreciated.

Thank you again Ivonne for being so wonderful to our girls :)

Ivonne is the best!

She really loves animals, our two cats Simone, Gisele and Arthur our dog loved her.

She sent us several pictures and videos, we were really happy to have her in our home.

We don't recommend her to keep her for us :D
