Small Animal Pet Sitting In My Home Or Check-Ins At Yours!
Animal lover right here! And that's what matters when it comes to pet sitting. I have never lived without animals and I have had the joy of working at a Children's Museum for 2 years (I left when I had my second child) which is home to hundreds of animals in their wildlife sanctuary. While there I handled all of the animals we were allowed to touch including the owls (my favorite), snakes of many species, other reptiles, amphibians, small mammals (ferrets, bunnies, chinchillas), and insects! I also assisted in feeding and changing enclosures. While the hands-on part was amazing I also had the opportunity to learn about them and teach with them as many were used for educational purposes.
I am also the family member/friend called to pet sit when everyone goes away on vacation since I am a stay at home mom and am always around!
