I've been a pet owner, pet sitter, and caretaker my whole life: large dogs, small dogs, cats, rabbits, chinchillas, hedgehogs, mice, leopard geckos, rats, fish tanks, a blue tongue skink, and a bird. There are other exotic pets that I know about, but have not personally cared for and I love to learn. Some pets that I have cared for have been elderly or had special needs, both medical and behavioral. Currently, our household has a dog (Emmy), a hedgehog (Finn), and (coming soon) a foster rat.
Our neighborhood, Lauderdale, is bordered by St. Paul, Minneapolis, Roseville, and Falcon Heights. It is a super convenient location...for me to get to you and for you to get to us. Lauderdale is quaint and has many pet owners. No matter the weather, neighbors are out walking their dogs. I have a fenced back yard and live within walking distance of a dog-park. My schedule is very flexible.
On a personal level, I am very patient, empathetic, and trustworthy. Working with youth and young adults over the past 20 years, my employment has required background checks and fingerprinting. Currently, I actively volunteer with MNSNAP (Minnesota Spay & Neuter Assistance Program) and I foster and volunteer with Minnesota Pocket Pet Rescue. I look forward to meeting (or re-meeting) you and your pets.
