Hi there! I am a mature Mom whose kids have flown the nest. I have loved and cared for all sorts of dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish and horses. In the last ten years before losing our beloved dog, Bridget, we also cared for neighborhood and friend's dogs. Bridget was a shepherd, chow, lab mix and full of personality! We currently have two cats, Cocoa and Sooty, and wish we could have more pets, so I would love to care for yours! If they need home visits, walking, a drive somewhere or just company I am available anytime, although I am unable to host dogs or cats at my home currently, I am happy to visit with yours. Other dogs I have cared for include a golden retriever, bulldog, Shih Tzu and various other cats. It is my goal to make your pets as comfortable as possible in your absence.
Here is a summary of Services:
House Visits: House visits entail a 30min visit for dogs, and 15 min visit for 2 or less cats. If dogs have yard access we will have playtime weather permitting, make sure they have personal time ;), feed them and clean up any accidents. Please let me know if they need walk time on a leash as well, as an exercise walk is a $10 surcharge. Please note madpaws charges a small fee for additional pets as they each need individual attention involving additional time. Cats will be fed, water changed, litter box cared for, and changed as needed. If they are playful, then playtime as well! ** Please Note: I am currently unable to walk dogs that are aggressive or pull hard on their leash. Let me know if you need mail pickup or plants watered as well!
Extended House Visits: If your pet requires a few hours of "sitting" , or overnight sitting (similar to babysitting), please let me know so we can agree on a fair rate :)
We currently have 2 cats, Cocoa and Sooty. They don't like visitors very much which is why we cannot host at this time. I am friendly, outgoing, punctual and very reliable and have an openly flexible schedule! I am happy to provide you with regular photos and text updates about your pet so you can relax and know they're well cared for!
Our first visit will be a meet and greet so that we can get to know each other and gather some important info. Then in the future you can just request a visit when needed!
Look forward to meeting you and your furry friends :)...
