Our Sitters and Their Friends

 

Brenda and Lola

I am an animal lover and I have had pets all my life. Pets are not just animals to me, they are part of the family, and I treat them as such. When I retired from teaching after 34 years, I couldn’t think of a better job to have besides pet sitting. I am now able to help care for 4 legged children instead of 2 legged ones.


 

 

Deb and Friend

Hi I'm Deb.

I have had animal companions all my life from DUCKS and HEDGEHOGS to BIRDS and BUNNIES. I LOVE animals! I have had COCKATIELS and COCKATOOS for about the last 38 years. I currently have 11 cockatiels, all with their own personalities and some who talk. I have a 2 year old male Rose Breasted Cockatoo named Kiki. He is such a sweet bird who talks non stop! I have 2 sweet rescue and cuddly female 2 year old Lionhead bunnies named Oreo and Nibbles. Last but not least I have Megan, my 15 year old Bichon who thinks she is the Alpha animal of our animal house!

I LOVE animals and all the "unconditional LOVE" they give you in return! Being a PET SITTER is such a rewarding job! How many people can say that about their jobs? It is so easy to take care of other pet owners animals because of the LOVE, COMPASSION and EMPATHY I feel for my own animal companions. I like helping people who need help with someone to watch their animal companions while they are away. They want their beloved animal companions taken care of in the same manner I do, when I am away from home. I like having a flexible part-time job. I enjoy earning an extra income. Doing what I LOVE to do taking care of ANIMALS!


 

Karen

Karen:

"I have had cats for as long as I can remember and a couple of dogs along the way. Our home has three cats and this is Leo our second rescue dog. I also have a koi pond in back and an aquarium in the house. Being a petsitter gives me the opportunity to meet and learn about all different breeds of animals. There is nothing better than the happy greeting of a dog or the magical purr of a cat. I am very grateful to have this wonderful opportunity."


 

Rose

Rose:

"The thing I enjoy most about petsitting is twofold:  I find it interesting to see the different varieties/breeds of cats and dogs our clients own, and I find it even more interesting having exposure to their different and unique personalities."


 

 

Kirby and Shellie

Shellie:

"Kirby is a 2 year old Cavachon who enjoys road trips. He loves to play and is quite the ball-handler. He pushes his ball around the house (with his little nose), several times a day for long periods of time. He loves people of all ages and is a master of amazing dog tricks.

 

Why do I enjoy petsitting? I get to meet some wonderful people that I would never get to meet otherwise. Being a pet owner myself, I know how important it is for our "babies" to be cared for by someone who really cares about them. I strive to be that someone by giving each pet the love and attention that they so need when their "parents" are away. It gives me great satisfaction to provide my clients (and their pets) with the type of care I would want if I were to hire a petsitter."

 


 

 

Becky and Dobies

Becky: "I can't imagine that any other job could offer more rewards than pet sitting. I have two Dobies at home and I understand the comfort of knowing that your loved ones are taken care of in your own home. "


 

Marilyn with Buddy and Maverick

Marilyn: "I've made so many 'furry, feathered and fin' friends in the 11 years I've been with Dusk to Dawn. I am so blessed to be invited back to care for your pets as they show their appreciation each visit I am in your home. I live in a condo, where we are restricted to one pet and she is our little two year old Schnoodle named Lucy, who was surrendered to us at nine months old. When I return from my petsit visits, she loves to get on my lap and sniff who I have been taking care of. Do you have a job where you are greeted every day with licks, tail wags, happy meows and barks, cuddles, excited jumping, and on and on? If not and you love animals, give Dawn a call!"


 

Sue with Mr. Pumpkin and Midge

Sue: "The best thing about pet sitting is seeing how happy the pets are, in the comfort of their own homes. They are happy to see me when I come in the door! I've loved being a professional petsitter for over 20 years, and have enjoyed the same care for our 3 furry family members, when we're away."


Dawn with Rosie

Dawn:

“We have four dogs:  Rosie, our 4 year old golden, who makes us laugh every single day; Ed, our 10 year old border patrolman mix (what would he do without a fence?;) Simba, our 7 year old Shih Tzu, who gives new meaning to the phrase “terrified of storms”; and Princess, our 15 year old Chihuahua, who is in charge of the house and all of its contents. We also have two kitties:  Auggie, our year old “WHAT WERE WE THINKING?" kitty, and Mo Mo, our elderly Persian, who tolerates a lot, and lets us know that quite frequently.


The best part of petsitting, for me, is getting to know so many wonderful pet parents and their pets. We appreciate and value the trust you put in us to care for family members."
