I have always loved dogs! There has not been a time in my life when I didn't have a dog to share my bed with and now I have 3 to share it with. I am currently getting my Masters in Biology and I am trying to go to PA school.

“Caring student hoping to help out!”

Hey! I am a recent graduate of Georgia Tech who has lived with pets since I was young! I have grown up with all sizes and ages of dogs, cats, and other animals, including turtles and birds. Pets bring substantial added value to our lives, which should be reflected in the way we care for and treat them. I have house/pet sat for many friends and neighbors for varying lengths of time. I want to show your pets the love that they deserve!

Hi! I'm Anna. I've been an animal and dog lover for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I spent my weekends at an animal shelter as a Dog Adoption Support volunteer. I loved getting to know new dogs every weekend, and I was so happy each time one of them found their forever family. My experience at the shelter reinforced my love of dogs and provided me with valuable training on how to interact with, train, socialize, and walk dogs of all breeds, sizes, and personalities.
