“Safe and Sound”

I was fortunate to have owned a mobile pet sitting business. For 18 years, I was able to do what I loved; providing pet care. I aimed to bring as much joy into their day as they brought to mine. I am mature, reliable and communicate well. Keeping the furry family safe and sound is my main goal. I closed in 2017 to provide full time care for my 92 year old mother. Now, I am in a position to care for pets once again and look forward to the opportunity to do so via WAG.

Hello I’m a very trustworthy person who loves working with animals. I have grown up with many animals and have owned many dogs. I currently have two fur babies. My fur babies are considered part of my family and I would do anything for them. I think these four legged fur babies are the best with their unconditional love and just wanting to please you, they expect nothing in return except your love. I would be very happy to help other pet owners with their fur babies. Sincerely Patti
