Danielle » I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where me and my mother rescued loveable strays from the city streets. I spent most of my life with cats and have become a true meow whisperer! If you have a shy or feisty feline, you can trust that I will be able to take care of him or her and have them purring on my lap in no time. But I am not only proficient with cats; I grew up with lizards, frogs, fish and have been walking dogs for many years as well. While cats are my first love, I currently live with a poodle-terrier mix and love taking pups on hikes! So whether you've got a purrrrfect house cat, a rambunctious pup or something of a more exotic variety, you can count on me to take the utmost care of your sweet pets!   Request Danielle

Larissa » Straight from good ol' sunny Los Angeles, I have always had a love for animals of all kinds. We weren't allowed to have dogs while I was growing up but to compensate my parents would get pretty colorful finches, small turtles, fish and we even had an iguana named Little Foot. I had a huge part in their care and would whistle back to the birds while our iguana would roam around in our enclosed back yard. It wasn't until I moved out on my own that I finally got a pitbull staffy, whom are family lovingly knows as Jynx. He's a 60 lb ball of pure love! We will go on long walks, hikes, swimming or just stay in the backyard to lounge around. I'm also pretty infamous for getting attached to animals that I care for, especially animals that belong to my close friends, they are always treated like my own. Each animal needs a different type of attention and I'm really good at being sensitive to that, so you can rest assured that your pet will be treated as one of my own.Request Larissa

Elisa » I grew up in the Bronx, New York, in a large, pet loving family. I'm the youngest of eight kids and we had two German Sheperds named "Danger & Queenie" and a feisty cat named "King Lear". Needless to say, I had a colorful childhood! Upon moving to Los Angeles I worked for four years as an assistant to someone who ran a dog rescue. My job consisted of many vet visits, walking groups of dogs at a time and cooking special meals for them. I was even trained on how to properly walk dogs. I love animals and they love love me! Two years ago I adopted a cat I named Miles, after Miles Davis, my favorite trumpet player. I was his third home. He had some behavioral issues and I guess the other two families gave up on him. With lots of love and good food, Miles doesn't hide or hiss anymore. He meows quite a bit but I call him my furry live-in opera singer. We're a team. I also live in between two homes that have dogs that I proudly serve as an Aunt to. You'll see me photographed here with one of them. A Beagle puppy named Grace. When I'm not working for LA Pet Sitting, Grace and I play quite a bit. I call her my workout coach. I live in the Silverlake area which is super pet friendly. My hobbies are playing the trumpet, learning the guitar, attending the theater and spending time with my friends' animals. Thank you LA Pet Sitting for giving me the opportunity to work doing a job I truly love!Request Elisa

Hinu » I grew up right here in sunny Los Angeles, California. My twin sister and I had all sorts of little pets growing up. We had white mice that would ride on our shoulders as we explored our neighborhood. We had snakes that escaped their cages and slithered next door to scare our elderly neighbors. We had a bright green macaw that was beautiful but only knew how to show affection through biting. But my favorite pet when we were growing up was my grandmother’s dog, Rasta. She was a Chow, and enormous. We'd ride her around the house when we were small enough and just walk beside her once we were too big. She was the sweetest, most loyal dog I've ever met. Though I’ve lived in many places around L.A., I’ve always been close to the Arroyo Seco Stables, where we board our wonderful horse, Bonnie. Having a father that loves horses means that I spend almost all of my free time with them, riding, grooming, and training. I am also the very proud owner of a beautiful fat fluffy cat named Merlin, who I adopted from the Pasadena Humane Society two years ago. I love meeting new animals, and forming lasting relationships with them. I’m excited to meet your pet and make a new friend!Request Hinu

Brittney » I have always had an inimitable love for animals. Growing up, I had both cats and dogs varying in breeds, sizes, and personalities. My passion for animal welfare increased as I grew older, and has influenced my daily life in many ways. Consequently, I became a vegetarian nearly eight years ago, and I make a conscious effort to be a responsible consumer of products and clothing I purchase, in order to ensure that animals are not harmed in the testing or production. In July of 2015, my husband and I adopted our two tabby fur babies named Hemingway and Huxley. They are not simply my cats; they are my sons. While Huxley is a sweet boy, he often instigates mischievous behavior, and has made a permanent dent in my couch cushion because he enjoys napping in the exact same spot every day. Hemingway enjoys his daily massages, and loves to lay on his faux fur blanket, no matter what the temperature is like in our home. All my life, I have found solace in caring for my furry family members; therefore, you can trust that I will care for your pets as I would care for my own, with love and safety in mind.Request Brittney

Letizia » I grew up here in Northeast LA and I always seem to have a rescue animal in my life. It started out at age 7, when I found a shaggy black puppy wandering alone in Eagle Rock Park. I convinced my parents to let me keep him, and he ended up being a part of our family for the next 16 years. I’ve also had many cats, fish, and a bird throughout my childhood. As an adult, I spent some time as a dog walker and also working for one of Southern California’s largest cat rescues. During my time there I learned to care for cats with special needs and appreciate the diverse personalities that cats can have. I currently live with two very different kitties: a sulky, yet loyal 12 year old Russian blue named Henry and a rambunctious 7 month old rescue kitten named Tabitha. I enjoy meeting all types of pets. They truly make life worth living. I’m excited to meet your pets and give them the same care that I would give to my own. Request Letizia

Tim » All my life I have been an animal lover. Growing up on a horse farm in New Jersey, I began to care for animals at a very young age. As a child I adored my lizards, fish, hamsters, and hermit crabs. Our cats and dogs were members of the family, and I can still remember vividly, the night I was awoken by my parents to witness the birth of a beautiful foal. Today I have 2 wonderful dogs, Ella & Saul, who I walk every day through the hills of Mt. Washington, where I have found and recovered lost dogs and cats numerous times.That's how I adopted Saul after finding him distressed and lying helpless in the street. I always try to assist when I find a stray animal and view it as an obligation to help all strays that cross my path. Request Tim

Priscilla » For as long as I can remember I’ve had a great love for animals. At a very young age, my sister and I would yearn to bring in cats that were homeless. We adopted our first cat, Tiger, when I was only 6 years old. Throughout the years I would bring in cats off the street. I have also had many fish and turtles as pets. I was able to perform TNR (trap, neuter, rescue) for the cats we cared for in the neighborhood, one of which I was able to take in, and named her Brownie Boots. She had four kittens which I was able to find homes for, but still cared for them for about 5 months while they found a forever home. I’ve volunteered at Casitas Sanctuary in Atwater Village in the past, which is the shelter where I found my first cat. I also took in, Pickles, a funny, fluffy Persian cat who was very old and needed fluids due to a kidney problem. I believe she was happy being in my care until she passed. I have provided pet sitting services for friends, family, and for others professionally, from taking care of cats, dogs, rabbits, turtles, and birds. The close relationships I made with the pets as well as the owners are something I cherish very dearly. I know how it feels to be worried about a pet while away because they are part of the family so you can be greatly assured that you pet will thrive while under my care. I am very grateful for this opportunity that LA Petsitting has provided me with. Request Priscilla

Lindsey » As a child when someone would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up my immediate answer, without hesitation, was a wildlife veterinarian. I wanted to save savannah animals like elephants and rhinos from human incursion and provide them with life-saving care. Though I never did become a wildlife veterinarian my love for animals—big and small, furry and bare—has never ceased. I have had several pets over the years, from a rescue cat named Bianco, to a hamster named Houdini (you can probably guess why). Growing up in central New Hampshire I was always taught to appreciate the natural wonders that surrounded me. I rode horses over miles of trails in the summer, went snowshoeing with my father and our enormous dog, Comet—who was more interestedin rolling around the snow than trudging through it— in the winter, and hiked the back roads during the fall and spring tirelessly looking to catch that coveted glimpse of a moose. Animals have always been an important part of my life, and will continue to be. Even the worst of days can be made better by a big, sloppy dog kiss! Request Lindsey

Jennifer » I love taking care of all animals! Originally from the San Gabriel Valley, Colombian and Filipino raised, I have gained professional experience working with animals by taking Vet Assistant/Tech classes and as a volunteer dog walker/cat socializer and Vet Assistant Intern at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society. My family and I have always cared for dogs, and have had cats, rabbits, and chickens as a part of our family. We currently share three dogs. Spending time with animals brings me so much joy, and it is a pleasure to work with other animal lovers and to care for their furry family members. As someone who has hired pet sitters in the past, I know what a relief it is to have someone who is reliable and has empathy for all animals take care of their pets, and I am so happy to be able to provide this service to other pet owners.

Michelle » A funny anecdote my mother likes to mention about my childhood is that I used to say I wanted to marry a cat! These were my words when I was five years old. My life since then has felt like an ongoing, happy companionship with all animals alike, but especially cats, as I had my first cat at the age of 9. I started volunteering at animal care locales such as Casitas Sanctuary in Atwater Village and PETCO (who are associated with Kitten Rescue) on and off throughout the years. The first time around I worked with the cats in “The Peach Room”. Those cats were struck with various types of illnesses and I found it upon myself to make sure these cats were the focus of my volunteering. The second time I volunteered with Casitas Sanctuary I photographed cats and became more involved with the cleaning aspect of the sanctuary (clean home, happy cats!). I soon became a pet sitter for various clients and continue to do so. The close relationships I have formed with the owners and my supervisor attest to the great customer service skills I provide. In addition, I have taken in many stray and shelter cats and have provided TNR for a bundle of cats that resided outside of my last home. I currently own one gorgeous cat, Choco, two curious turtles and one super sweet dog, Obie, and continue to love and care for them diligently. I am very passionate about allowing animals to thrive in their environments and to help them in any way possible. My love and passion for them will extend to yours and I’m elated to continue meeting new pets and owners. Request Michelle

Carolyn » As a LA native, I have come across all different types of pets from dogs to chinchillas and have yet to find a furry friend that I don't like taking care of. Growing up with three family dogs, I learned at a young age how important a pet's role can be in someone's family. I began pet sitting at the age of 18 during my time in San Francisco, for a part timecollege job. During my time as a pet sitter, I'vecared for many different types of pets with differentbehavior issues such as dementia, food aggression,weak joints, etc. I’ve learned with trust and patience, any pet whether it is a dog or chinchilla, will warm up to their caretaker. I understand the anxiety of leaving your pet alone during the day or while your going on a trip, I would love to be the sitter to ease your mind and take care of your furry friend. Request Carolyn

Marc » My first brother was Roman, a 115 pound black lab who would play in the snow with me in Minnesota. When my family moved to Arizona we would come to have another black lab/chow mix (Russo), countless birds, and on weekends my sister would let me ride her horse Emmy! Our parents did not take care of our pets, we did! This really instilled our deep love for animals with a firm knowledge of how much work it takes. Since moving to LA, my sister and I have adopted two cats, Tillie and Ollie (they’re siblings just like us!). Tillie is pictured with me here, she always insists to be with me whether I’m reading my next play or looking at sheet music for my next singing gig. She’s never been a fan of my actual singing! But her and her brother Ollie are anxious to make “pur” and make “pancakes” afterwards! Request Marc

Nikole » For as long as I can remember, my family and I have always owned one to two dogs at a time. All with such varied personalities. Currently, I own two mixed breed dogs. Both crave the active outside world as I do. So, hiking with my dogs and friends on the many trails in and around LA is what I like to do on my spare time. Growing up, my family and I have also owned birds and loads and loads of fish. For years, my neighbors and I have taken upon ourselves to take care of the "wild" cats that roam in and out of our houses. Occasionally in the past, I have pet sat for family, friends, and colleagues. I recently moved back from living in NYC for two years. I can't help but appreciate the opportunity to spend quality time with my dogs, compared to living in a stuffy small apartment with two other roommates. Thank you LA Pet Sitting for giving me the opportunity to meet fellow pet owners and their pets! I look forward to caring for your pet(s) as my own. Request Nikole
