About Sarah

SERVICES OFFERED: I am available to check in on your cat in your home while you are away. Cats feel safe in their own space and are much less stressed if I come to them. I will feed, do the litter, check the mail and have some play time or cuddle time if they like. I am interested in more exotic pets and would be happy to discuss your unique pet's needs.

DOG WALKING: My work schedule is erratic. Please ask and I will see if I can accomidate the time and day you need. I would be especially interested in helping you with your particularly energetic dog who needs some extra walks.

AREA SERVED: The Westboro area. I do not have a car, so I am available to visit places that are efficient to walk/ bus to.

MY EXPERIENCE IN A NUTSHELL: I have always been a pet owner and animal lover. I have a degree in Biology and have worked on wildlife research projects across the Americas and at Not-for-profit organizations. I have worked at the local animal shelter and volunteered with animal rehabilitation centres (turtles and birds). I have been a foster parent for the over 5 years and have cared for more than 90 cats in my home during this time. I find it extremely rewarding to help these animals heal and develop the confidence they can take with them into their forever homes. I would be comfortable caring for most animals while you are away including more exotic species.

WHY DO I PET SIT? I love caring for animals and meeting the people who love them. I have returned to school to complete the next steps for a career veterinary medicine. Working as a pet sitter seems like the perfect way to help me save for school while hanging out with some cool cats.
