I am a high school English teacher and passionate animal-loving Vegan. I currently rent a condo where I am not allowed to have any pets. I have summer, winter and spring break time off work in which I especially crave play time with furry little buddies.
I grew up with pets from a very young age, and not just cats and dogs! I have been a proud mom to hamsters, guinea pigs and rats, as well as an auntie to a few lizards. In my teens, I earned my horseback riding lessons by working as a stablehand, including grooming, training, and mucking our stalls; so you can rest assured that your pets’ bathroom messes won’t phase me. As a lifelong lover of all animals, I can promise you affectionate, doting care for your little family members while you are out of town. I would be especially excited to care for your hedgehogs, rabbits and pigs- all animals I adore but have never had as part of my family. I am also very comfortable with the idea of caring for more... unconventional friends, such as birds, snakes and other reptiles. I don’t have as much personal experience with this, but I love all kinds of animals and I follow instructions well. However, please note that due to my Vegan beliefs I am not comfortable feeding live animals to your pets.
I will come to your home and ensure your pets have everything they need to be safe and comfortable, plus ample play and cuddle time. I will also stay in your home to care for pets who need more regular medical care. I’m comfortable giving prescribed medications to pets - lots of experience with this with my own fur babies in the past!
You can be certain that I will leave your home safe and tidy, and that I will respect your privacy. I’m happy to work with all kinds of families and individuals - I just want to love your pets!
Shannon always takes great care of kitties! :)
I’m a high school teacher and with that comes an inherent clear criminal record check.
In my teens, I worked as a stable hand and have experience grooming and training horses and mucking out stalls. Nothing grosses me out any more!
I have also had lots of practice giving prescribed medications to hamsters, cats, and dogs.
