Hello there! My name is Sam, I have over 15 years of experience working with domestic pets, exotics and and wildlife! I have a BSc in Zoology and a BSc in Animal Physiology.
I love all animals and enjoy being around them all the time- it never gets old! They have so much personality!! I have been commercially pet sitting for 10+ years and pride myself in providing excellent care for your little loved one(s) while you are away!
I also have experience with pets who are special needs and may need medication administered- oral, injectable, SQ, etc. My experience with that comes from working as an animal technician as well as working with various pet rescues for 15+ years.
In my spare time I love enriching my own little family of pets and fostering pets so they can find a loving home! My cats, dogs and reptiles come from various backgrounds; most were rescues!
My eldest dog is elderly and special needs so I love spending time with her getting her hips as strong as they can be by doing gentle walks and swimming classes. My middle dog is an athelete and loves to go swimming (retrievers, eh!). She does dock jumping and agility, and my youngest is still figuring out her skills but I think she's going to love scent trailing (ah, hounds!). I have three kitties, they're various ages ranging 1-8 years old. I enjoy keeping them active, playing enrichment games with them, lots of cuddles and building spaces where they can feel safe and comfortable.
I am looking forward to meeting you and helping your pet have an enjoying vacation while you do too!
Sam is incredible! So glad to have her as an option to care for my older cat with renal disease. Sam was very detailed at the meet and greet and I could tell right away that my cat would be in great hands. Sam’s photo, video and text updates were the best, I received a full report on food and litter box usage :). I didn’t worry as much about being away. I’ll definitely use her services again!
