“I will treat your pup as if they were my own!”

I have one rescue dog of my own, volunteer at a rescue organization, work at local Kennel Club events, and care for my neighbor’s dog when they are away. I still have time to take your fur baby for a walk, and would be happy to get them out for some fresh air and exercise! I understand that pets are family, and you can be sure that I will do everything to make their time with me safe and enjoyable.

“Big or small, I love them all!”

I started my career with animal care in 2009, when moved from VA to NC to join the vet tech program at Gaston College. Currently I work, as needed, at a busy animal emergency hospital in Charlotte. I'm available full time and am fully capable of caring for your pets during your absence. Whether the absence is an afternoon walk, or a weekend getaway I will follow any instructions you leave regarding the care of your pets. I look forward to meeting the extra additions in your household.
