My name is Melina, and I love animals. I have a Bachelors as well as a Masters in Environmental Studies from York University, Toronto, my research focused on Ecosystems Management and Wildlife Conservation and Education. During two years I worked on two different conservation projects, both to protect nesting habitats for marine turtles in Costa Rica, and double-crested cormorants in Toronto.
In 2015 I volunteered for Toronto Wildlife Centre as a Wildlife Nursery Assistant feeding and taking care of injured wildlife, and in 2016 I worked hands-on with Bumblebees for Wildlife Preservation Canada, as a Lab Technician. In 2018, I worked in Costa Rica for 3 months with marine turtles and snakes with the Canadian Organization for Tropical Conservation and Rainforest Education.
I have plenty of experience working hands-on with animals, and of course, I LOVE pets! I'm an experienced pet sitter, you can take a look at my reviews section and read some of the comments. I'm reliable, responsible and easy to communicate with.
My current work schedule is quite packed, but usually Thursdays and Fridays I work from home. If you live close to me, my availability to do pet sitting is more flexible. Your pets can come to my house, or I can come to you. I can pet sit any breed of any size. - Trust me with your fur babies, I promise you they will be in good hands with me! :)
Melina was great! She took care of our two kitties while we were away and also helped by watering our plant and running our Roomba to keep the place a bit cleaner when we were gone. She sent photos every second day and was very responsive to messages :)
Melina took care of our 2 cats for about 10 days (2 home visits/day). She was very easy to communicate with, sent pictures regularly, and our cats were really well taken care of. Thank you Melina!
As mentioned above, my degree is on Environmental Studies. I've worked and volunteered with animals before, and I have experience pet sitting.
I look forward to meeting your pet! I can assure you I will love them, and take as good care for them as you do.
