My name is Donna and I have been an animal lover all of my life. Since my childhood, I have had many different kinds of pets, from dogs and cats, to bunnies, gerbils, guinea pigs, hampsters, geckos and fish. My favorite thing about animals is the unconditional love that they provide to their human companions, and it is this love that drives my passion for professional pet care.
About 17 years ago, I was introduced to animal rescue. Rescuing dog and cats from neglect and abandonment has been both rewarding and humbling. I have learned from the many different experiences that fostering dogs and cats brings. I also became involved in fundraising for rescue, as well as coordinating home visit inspections and adoption events.
After working with dogs for so long, I was inspired to become certified as a Therapy Dog Handler with Therapy Dogs Inc, where my passion for helping animals extended to help people as well. In addition to a certified Therapy Dog Handler, I am also certified in Pet First Aid with the American Red Cross.
A negative experience of leaving my dog, Buster, while I was on vacation led me to my career as a pet sitter. I realized that other people felt as anxious about leaving their pet as I did. I wanted to give pet owners the peace of mind of knowing their pets were happy and well cared for.
The pets in my care are treated as if they are my own and I am happy to shower them with love and attention. It is my aim to provide reliable pet sitting and dog walking services. I am proud to offer a service that gives pet families the comfort of knowing their pets are safe and comfortable in their home environment, with their normal routines and own cozy beds. I look forward to meeting you and your pets, and being BEST OF BUDDIES with them!
