Alyssa » I grew up in Minnesota on a farm with all kinds of animals. I worked at a horse ranch and at a few animal shelters dealing with all kinds of animals. I went to college and worked at an animal shelter there, was on the medical team and helped start an animal cruelty investigation team. I also fostered for baby cats and dogs, as well as “special” cases such as those with medical problems or those needing socializing. I moved to California in June 2019 and started working for a horse ranch, and volunteered at various animal shelters. Shortly after starting to volunteer at the animal shelters, I was employed part time at one of those shelters and continue to work there. I hope to bring comfort to you and fun times to your wonderful pets while you are away. Your fur babies are in great hands!   Request Alyssa

Cecilie » I was born and raised in Norway, but have been in LA for 20 years. I got my first pet, Pia, the runt of a Bichon Friseé litter, when I was 7 years old. She was my best friend growing up and I took her everywhere. During college here in LA I had Nursket and Rufus, two adorable dwarf hamsters. Then came the amazing Winkie cat. My boyfriend at the time and I found her on a highway in Texas. She had fleas, ear mites and was missing an eye. At the time we hadn’t thought about adopting a pet, but this one for sure wasn’t going anywhere! When I met my husband he had Jerry and Mylo. A spunky Chihuahua/Dachshund and the most elegant kitty. Two years ago we adopted a litter of four lovely gray kittens, Sterling, Willow, Aspen and Lily. And our sweet baby kitten Roselyn came from a shelter in Las Vegas six months ago. Sadly Mylo and Winkie are no longer with us. Every day I am grateful for our beautiful little souls that bring so much joy to our life. They make everything better. To care for them is one of my greatest pleasures. It is always hard to leave them, even for a short while. I can’t wait to share the way I care about my loved ones with yours.Request Cecilie

Amy » I was born and raised in Colorado by parents who valued the natural world. Our family vacations were frequently spent visiting national parks throughout the southwest. My parents also supported my love of nature and animals by allowing me and my brother to have many pets, including dogs, cats, Guinea pigs, rabbits, ducks, fish, turtles and mice. In high school, I worked as a veterinary technician where my knowledge of caring for animals was enhanced. I also developed an interest in training our family dog. This interest continues today as I am raising a large Kuvasz (Hungarian Livestock Guardian) named Luna whose energy and playfulness seem unbounded. We have earned several AKC titles in scent work, tricks and canine good citizenship, and are hoping to start classes in agility soon. I also have a little grey cat named Loki who is learning to tolerate his giant canine sister. When I travel, nothing is more important to me than the safety and wellbeing of my pets. My goal as your pet sitter is to make you feel that your pets are safe and well cared for. I am detail-oriented, neat and thoughtful. I will respect your home and care for your animals with tenderness and love.Request Amy

Zuri » As an LA native, I’ve come to appreciate the fact that “fur-babies” not only exist but are a way of life. Pets can become an integral part of your family because of the real value and love pets bring to enrich our lives. I know this firsthand growing up with pets whom I have cherished throughout the years. I love interacting and taking care of animals and, it’s something I find immensely rewarding. Whether it’s pet-sitting or walking your pet, I know the importance of spending time with them and showing affection. I have a genuine connection with animals and I treasure time with them. Sadly, my apartment does not allow pets so I fill that void by volunteering at the German Shepherd Rescue on weekends and pet-sitting for friends/family. I am looking forward to meeting your pet soon!Request Zuri

Ashley » My family always thought I was the troublesome child in the family, mostly because I would bring strays home from the street and bring them back home to nurture and provide shelter for them. I would create and put up signs reporting a found dog or cat in the neighborhood in hopes of returning the lost fur-family member. As a child I was a cat-mom, spending my time with my cats, learning how to bottle feed the kittens, and providing support for the overwhelmed cat mother. At some point me and my family cared for up to seven cats, six dogs, and a red ear slider turtle so I have experience with a variety of pet-personalities.I have tried my hardest to raise healthy and happy cats for as long as I could remember. My oldest cat, Sylvester, lived 18 long and happy years. My childhood dog, Scrappy, developed cataracts that were too risky to be surgically removed due to her age. Instead of putting Scrappy through the unnecessary risks, I personally trained and taught her new commands to help guide her. You may say I was her seeing eyehuman. All my childhood pets were strays that I took in and they live(d) long happy lives. I attempted to foster and heal little Oscar here, from a construction site, and to eventually find his forever home. I did not intend to keep my dorky fur-baby, but apparently he had other plans. I look forward to meeting and working with you and your fur-babies.Request Ashley

Bridget » Hi! My name is Bridget and I am a dog mom! This precious baby is Pegasus, named after my favorite Disney movie: Hercules. Although I currently only own dogs, growing up I used to joke with anyone who asked if I had pets saying that I did—in fact that I had a ZOO at home. My home was a safe place for dogs, cats, hamsters, turtles, fish, birds, baby chicks, bunnies; you name it—all with very different and interesting personalities. Growing up I wanted to become a veterinarian because there was no hiding my love for animals but as I grew older I realized that although being a vet means helping animals, the job also has its difficult days where you have to preform procedures that I just knew I did not have the heart to. So, I decided I would change my career path and although I did, my love for animals did not change in fact it grew more. I know these precious beings are not just pets, they are FAMILY and a very big part of us and our daily lives. I hope you give me the great pleasure of caring for your family the way I love and care for mine.Request Bridget

Lexie » Hi! My name is Alexia, but my friends call me Lexie! I grew up with four cats and a dog, and was always pet sitting for family, friends, and neighbors. I’ve lived in four cities, and everywhere, friends and family have trusted me to take good care of their pets. This is my kitty, Lucy, I rescued her near Disneyland! She is my baby, and I don’t know what I would do without her. I know how important our animal companions are to us, so I know how important it is to give lots of love and care as I watch over your furry family!Request Lexie

Daniela » Hi! My name is Daniela and I am excited and looking forward to meeting you and your pets! For a little background info, I grew up in Los Angeles and was always surrounded by pets, mostly dogs and cats. I’ve always cared deeply for my pets and considered them family and as if they were humans for the most part. Currently I have a Mini Schnauzer as well a 9 month old kitten that I basically treat as my kids. I will always try my best to make sure your pets are comfortable and I hope that I am able to give you guys that peace knowing your pets will always be taken care of as if they were my own. Hope to see you and your pets soon!Request Daniela

Ebony » My experience with animals is both personal and professional. Picture an 8 years old child setting up a trap in the backyard to capture a wounded stray cat. With my fathers's assistance, I was able to stabilize the cat, and bring it to a shelter where it was later adopted. I remember that day like it was yesterday, and to this day it's one of my favorite childhood memories. I've been a pet caregiver for 9 years now. I'm the friend that everyone calls to watch their pets when they go out of town. I understand the importance of having someone reliable to care for your fur babies! It makes life a little bit easier to know that your pets are in good hands. I would love to take your dog for a nice long walk sometime!Request Ebony

Lorena » Growing up in LA, I owned a wide variety of different pets from a duck, a rabbit, a toad, a turtle, a frog, and a dog, to all different types of fish. It wasn’t until I was given the love of my life, my cat-son, Timber, that I realized just how much I loved animals. I quickly became the go-to pet sitter for my family, friends, and coworkers. They entrusted me with their guinea pigs, birds, turtles, rabbits, cats, and dogs while they were away. I cherish the individual personalities that each animal has and I’m looking forward to meeting and becoming best friends with your pet. They are sure to get extra special attention and love when I stop by for a visit!Request Lorena

Nicole » Most people know me as a “crazy cat lady” due to my unending love and fascination for cats. However, my affection extends towards all animals ranging from dogs, rabbits, even chickens. I used to be scared of dogs when I was a little girl, but my boyfriend’s three dogs showed me how loving and adorable they can be. I am now a “mama” to a sassy little chihuahua named Lilo. Furthermore, with my experience in caring for a variety of animals, I am confident that I can provide exceptional pet care while making sure that your furry/feathery/scaly family member stays happy and healthy! Request Nicole

Emily » Hey there! My name is Emily; H (Saint Bernard) and Finn (DMH) are my family. I have been in animal care for about 6 years. Apart from working with them, I grew up with livestock, rabbits, aves, tortoises, iguanas and of course; cats and dogs. My first encounter was at my local animal shelter and from there I just knew that anything to do with animals and its welfare is where I want to stay. Proactively caring for the overall well being of animals has been one of my strengths throughout the years. Your pet(s) are already a part of my family and can’t wait to meet you! Request Emily

Erin » Hello, Lovely Pet Owners, I am an animal lover myself. So much so, that I avoid eating animal product. I'm not the perfect vegan, but I try my best to not contribute. I have a DEEP love for animals and have grown up with them my entire life. This little guy with me is Wrigley, but I own a dog named Harley as well and she is my world. I've grown up with a diverse range of animals from domestic to farm. I aso know a bit about exotic animals. I believe that animals help anchor us to the natural world and remind us that we, too are animals and can connect with the world around us. Animals are amazing companions that we shouldn't take for granted! I was unable to bring my pup to LA, so it would be an honor to take care of yours when you're in need! I miss being around our furry friends and am in dire need of some animal lovin'. Looking forward to it, my pleasure! Request Erin

Genna » As someone who is highly sensitive and in tune with the rhythms of this world, I have always had a special connection with animals. I grew up with 1-3 cats (depending on the year) and watched them all fight sickness and injury with strength and grace. I personally identify most closely with cats, as I am calm, strong-willed when I need to be, and full of love. I also love to hang out with dogs and have cared for birds and fish in the past as well. When I meet a new animal friend, I approach them calmly and with care, and I am often met with surprise from pet owners at how delicately their animals react to my energy. I have experience cat-sitting, house-sitting, and dog-walking for the past couple of years. I recently moved down to Los Angeles from Berkeley, and I can't wait to make new animal friends in this area. Whether it's a cozy cuddle sesh with your kitty or an exhilarating walk with your pup, I'm ready to help with all of your needs! Request Genna

Estelle » Growing up in Southern California, I grew up with cats, dogs, mice, fish and a bunny. The dogs I had ranged from small dogs to large dogs. My most recent for the past 5 years, is what I call my "cat dog," who's a cat but plays like a dog, so I get the best of both worlds. I look forward to caring for yours, as I would do my own. Request Estelle

Gary » Hi! I grew up with cats and dogs and just love love love animals. I'm with Nico, my bestestest cat friend! I will be more than happy to give your wonderful pet all the love it deserves and more! Request Gary

Glenn » My experience with animals is both personal and I’ve always been an animal fan, from dogs and birds to cats and snakes. If you’ve ever seen the movie Best in Show, I’m all those characters blended together. I have three dogs myself, and also have fish and a flock of lovebirds. My love of animals has been enhanced by years of volunteering at the Pasadena Humane Society, where I have had training and experience in helping and nurturing every kind of dog imaginable, and Shadow Hills Riding Club where I have helped take care of horses, goats, pigs and other animals. One of my dogs is diabetic, so I’m well versed in administering injectables, eye drops and oral medications, and I understand the need to find a sitter who cares about your pets as much as you do. Your pet’s health, safety and happiness is my highest priority.Request Glenn

Hector » Animals need to be taken care of, it is a must. And as we take care of them, we as humans begin to love them. Gen 1:26 says: Then God said: “Let us make man... and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth.” Doesn’t matter what we choose to believe in, animals, once again, must be taken care of. I take very seriously the care of my Charlie here, he is an old dog that needs special care, as I will with your cat, dog or other pet too. You have my word that your pet will be in good hands.Request Hector

Howland » Hi! Howland here. I’d love to get to know your pets and help you help them thrive. Each animal has its own motivations, fears, and comforts. I bring a calm, engaged, and curious energy that lets your pets feel safe and cared for. I grew up taking care of a parakeet and dogs (including small fiesties and huge playful ones) and I’m the go-to person for my friends to watch their fur bébés. I’ve even watched untrained, food-aggressive German Shepherds and Malinois with the calm assertiveness they need. I also come with a glowing recommendation from my own feline wards, Oats and Biff, whom I’ve been caring for since they were 2.5 weeks old. I received training from the North Central LA Animal Shelter to foster kittens, and I do have experience administering oral meds and with bottle feeding. To boot, I’m organized, reliable and easy to coordinate with, so I get along great with humans too! :) Pets are family and I am here for yours.Request Howland

Ilsy » Hello Creatures & Hoomans, First, a big thank you! I would like to thank you for listening at this time, and would like to let you know that my big importance is the safety of your loved animal! A little about me, my name is ilsy with an i, I’m 23 years old, and I’m born and raised in North Hollywood. I’ve had many MANY animals in my past time, and living in a small apartment most of my life it trained me to clean up after my pets. I’ve had 15 birds, 2 bunny rabbits, 2 turtles, and 10 dogs. I’ve never owed a cat per say, but I have a neighbors cat that always come by my home and I feed him and provide shelter if the kitty ever needs it. I’m a loving, caring, compassionate, goofy, and most of all responsible pet sitter. My goal is to build a bond of trust with you and your furry friendly family member. I cannot wait to set up a meet & greet with you and your pet soon!.Request Ilsy

Imani » Hello! My name is Imani and I've been a lover of all animals my entire life. I grew up in Georgia where most of my time was spent taking care of pets. My mom introduced me to fostering and owning pets when I was 3 years old. I have helped take care of many animals from iguanas to dogs. Whether it was a box of kittens getting dropped off at my door (true story) or saving turtles and releasing them back into the wild, there is no animal that will keep me from loving them. Now, I partner with my mom on her dog business as far as media production goes. But, every now and then she takes in yorkies who come to California to vacation with me. Although I'll only be meeting many pets for short periods of time, they will always have a forever home in my heart. I absolutely love being a positive light in the eyes of every family and pet that I meet.Request Imani

Javier » Hi! My name is Javier. I grew up in Echo Park. Growing up, I had a few pets such as birds, hamsters, fish, a turtle, and I fostered and rescued a dog back in 2015. I've always had some sort of animal within arms reach and I really enjoy spending time and caring for them. The unspoken bond between human and animal is certainly something special. However, I understand that we can't be there 100% of the time. I hope I can bring the attention and care your pet needs until you return home to them.Request Javier

Jessica » Hi my name is Jessica and I have been a fur mom for more than 20 years! Growing up, we always had family pets (or babies as my family calls them) in our house, whether that was a dog, parakeets, fish, or cats. My love for animals only continued to grow as I reached adulthood. I am now the proud fur mom of 2 cats and aunt to 4 other dogs whom I enjoy taking out and playing with. I am a dedicated and loving individual who is looking to help other fur parents give their fur babies the attention and care they need when families have to step out for a few days. I can’t wait to meet you and your fur baby!Request Jessica

Clark » Hello! I'm Clark. When I was a kid I wasn't allowed to have a dog, so I made it my business (literally) to try and meet/walk/watch every dog in the neighborhood. Since then my love of animals has only grown! Now I finally have my own animals! Frank, the dog (14), and Mookie and Touki the cats (2). Unfortunately Frank was recently diagnosed with diabetes, so I have become quite adept at taking care of high maintenance dogs. In my spare time I like to work in my garden, read, and listen to old vinyls I've dug up at estate sales. I love loving animals, and I can assure you that while you're gone, your pet will miss you, but they won't miss all the love and affection you give them. Over the years I’ve become the go-to-guy when friends and neighbors need a little help with their pet, and I’m excited to meet yours!Request Clark

Jon » Hi, I’m Jon And this is Lilly (puppy) my newest member of our family and Chuy (cat) the queen bee of the household. I have 5 years experience pet sitting for friends and family. I love making new pet buddies, and want to ensure they are as happy as can be. I’ve always had a love for animals and connecting with new furry friends. Pets are great companions and I look forward to meeting many new buddies! I have a passion for the outdoors. In my spare time, I love being outside walking, running or hiking.Request Jon

Josh » Hello! My name is Josh Wetzel and I really enjoy hanging out with pets. I have spent most all my life around animals and I have experience with many different types of pets. I've spent most all my life around dogs, especially my own two Rocky and Sadie. I love my dogs so much!

I know how important dog sitting is and how great of a responsibility I have. I will care for your pets just like my own.Request Josh

Julia » Hi there, my name is Julia and I have always been an animal lover. I grew up on a farm and I was always surrounded by animals which made me very happy. Horses, cows, cats, dogs, rabbits, you name it. Currently I have 3 beautiful kitty cats. My beautiful rescue girl, (Momo, pictured) my sweet tuxedo boy, Chomper and my newest rescue, my spicy redhead Nash. My kitties are definitely my children and they are all extremely loved and well taken care of. Throughout the years I have worked in pet sitting/dog walking and I loved every second of it. Animals tend to gravitate towards me and I am so thankful, I always do my best to make them feel safe and loved. It would be my deepest honor to have you entrust me to look after and care for you fur babies, they deserve the best love and care possible. I can't wait to meet them!Request Julia

Keith » I grew up in Syracuse NY and on the weekends we would go to either my grandmother's farm or my aunt's farm where I developed my love for animals and the countryside. We always had a cat in our family and later poodles (my mom's favorite kind of dog) and so I became very accustomed to the responsibility of taking care of animals and their different needs. When I moved to LA I missed having a companion animal and became involved with cat rescues from city shelters. All of my Kitties lived healthily until about 20 years old and I hope to provide that kind of caring and attention to your animal family members too!Request Keith

Kristen » Hello! My name is Kristen Dopieralski. I was born in Washington, DC but have lived in Los Angeles for the past 6 years. Growing up, I had a wonderfully sassy half-siamese/half black cat named Dinah. We named her after the adorable kitty in ‘Alice in Wonderland’. She was my family’s loving companion for 18 years, and lived with us across the globe in Egypt, Japan and Virginia. In college, I rescued a gray kitten that had been wandering around a pumpkin patch. I fostered him for a few weeks with my roommates. We tried to find him a home in the area without luck. During winter break, I brought him home. My sister took him to a vet for a check up—then fell in love with him and adopted him! Over the past year, I’ve spent many months caring for a friend’s cat while she had to be away. He is a special little boy, and requires unique care. He’s taught me a lot about cat health and emotional wellbeing. I’ve also cared for my sister’s dog over the years who has required extra behavioral attention. I’m very organized and meticulous. A true animal lover, I can’t wait to share my compassion with your pets.Request Kristen

Kyle » Hello! My name is Kyle, and I've been surrounded by a variety of pets my whole life. Over the course of my childhood, my family had four goldfish, two dogs (a beagle and a German Shepherd), five cats, and a few different hamsters and gerbils. I also started earning some side dollars at an early age when I offered to watch all the pets in the neighborhood whenever people were traveling, which exposed me to cats, iguanas, birds, and even spiders to care for. It fostered in me a love for all kinds of animals and an understanding of the trust and confidence required to leave your home and treasured items in the hands of another person, and I've strived with every job to provide that peace of mind.Request Kyle

Leigh » Hello! My name is Leigh and I have always had a love for animals. The safety of your pet is my number one priority. I grew up owning dogs, rats, frogs, fish, and hamsters, and I love riding horses as well. I spent much of my childhood volunteering at an animal hospital which taught me about safe dog and cat handling and medication administration. I have also provided pet sitting and positive reinforcement dog training services to friends and family for years. I work at a recovery center for teen boys in recovery for addiction and substance abuse. In my free time I love writing, painting, music, hiking, and doting on my cat Goose and my dog Toby! As a vegan, animal loving, pet owner I understand the importance of treating your pets with the same care and attention I would my own.Request Leigh

Looking forward to meeting you and creating a bond with your pet.Request Leslie

Lisa » Hi! My name is Lisa and I’ve been an animal lover since I was very young. I’ve always had one type of pet or another. I’ve had experience with many different animals (domesticated and undomesticated) including having worked at an equine hospital every other weekend for 12 years and helping at a ROP animal care center (undomesticated animals). Among my personal animal rescues are a hawk, two ducks, a chicken and a crow. My current pets are the following: MoJo an offtrack Thoroughbred (ex-race horse) turned jumper; Sugarplum (Sug) my tuxedo kitty, BunBun (Buns) my rex rabbit, Tiago my Sun Conure and Bruiser my Russian tortoise.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your pets!Request Martika

Mel » Growing up in New York City I had the pleasure of meeting and caring for so many great animals. From the smallest mouse to the biggest Great Dane, whether it was hairy or scaly, they all have their own unique personality and I love them all! Of course, animals aren't all fun and games. Having pets of my own, I've seen my fair share of health conditions. I have experience giving insulin shots, oral medications, and I keep my cool in an emergency. I became the go to in my family in regards to animal care. With over 20 years of experience as a pet parent, I have developed the patience and compassion necessary to not just watch your pet but become their newest friend.Request Mel

Michael » Hello. My name is Michael. My immediate family moved to the U.S.A. from Cuba when I was two years old and we have lived in Los Angeles almost all my life. (My brother and sister are my older siblings.) Although my mom insisted we achieve fluency with English, we are all bilingual as well. A neighbor’s dog had puppies and one of them—who I named KimChi—was my first dog. A Maltese and Shih Tsu mix—a little dog with a big personality. The little guy pictured in the photo is my current dog, Chicharone. (Yeah, I know… “what’s with the food names?” It’s cause I love to cook) Cheech and his mother were in a box dumped in a field and a co-worker fortunately noticed them. Cheech has been my furbaby for 12 years. I share a duplex with my friend, Dan, and over the years I’ve helped him care for his five blind or deaf and/or senior dogs and 2 feral kitties. I love all our furred, feathered or scaled friends and would love the chance to meet and pamper your pets. I am at the top of all my friend’s and family’s lists whenever one of them need pet and/or house sitting, so I have plenty of experience.Request Michael

Michelle » Hi friends! I’m Michelle and I can’t wait to connect with you and your beloved pets. I’m passionate about animal welfare and after years of caring for my friends’ fur babies (and human babies), I’m excited to turn my passion into a purpose. My buddies describe me as ‘big hearted and compassionate’. I would describe myself as kind and curious with a calm energy and thirst for adventure! I’m pretty intuitive with both animals and people which allows me to cultivate connections with ease and understanding. I grew up around horses, and dogs and cats have always been a huge part of my life. Having said that, I’m nuts about all living creatures (except for earthworms don’t ask). I’ve volunteered at various animal charities over the years and currently foster which I LOVE - apart from the giving them back part... At the moment I have Saffron and Marge living with me, two formerly feral kitties who’ve spent the last year decompressing and learning how to socialize. This has been such a beautiful and rewarding experience that’s required immense patience, but both girls have come so far and I couldn’t be more proud of them! To wrap it up; I believe all animals deserve love but above all, respect. My promise to you is to honour that should I be entrusted with the care of your pet. So, whether you’re looking for someone to quietly cuddle your tabby or hike with your energetic lab, I’m your girl.Request Michelle

Mischel » Animals have always been a constant in my life and I feel so amazingly grateful for each and every-one of them! I was raised around cats, dog, birds, hamsters, fish, snakes, and an entire family of horses, dairy cows, hens and sweet goats. They bring such JOY, fun, understanding, and unconditional love and I feel in the depth of my heart and soul the exact same should be extended to every-one of them. The sweetest cat came into my life when I was so, so sad, after the passing of my Norwegian Forest Cat, Zsashie, who was 19. Queen Scarlett was an outdoor cat, whose owners left her on her own, as they were allergic. She roamed the streets of Valley Village night and day, getting into many a’shenanigans! Today, she has left that life behind, and is adjusting to an indoor life, one she truly loves! She still doesn’t like to be cuddled or picked up, but we are working on it! I really feel that the best part of caring for others animals is ALL of it, and I can’t wait to meet you and your wonderful animals!Request Mischel

Paulette » Hi there! My name is Paulette but everyone calls me Paw. I was born and raised in Highland Park, CA. I found my love for animals at a very young age and my passion has lead me to working and volunteering with a dog rescue for over 15 years. There is no dog too big or too small, although pitties hold a special place in my heart. My passion has given me extensive experience in caring for others beloved fur babies. I believe our dogs are family and the unconditional love they provide should be returned. My personality is centered around being a animal lover and always being Pawsitive. I'm thrilled for you to trust me with your fur babies.Request Paulette

Po » My name is Po and I am a pet sitter currently serving Pasadena and nearby surrounding cities. I have made animals the number one priority in my life. Absolutely nothing is more important to me than their well-being. I always do my utmost very best to care for the animals who have come into my life. I treat every pet as if they were my own. You can rest assured by leaving your pets with me, you are leaving them under the watch and care of someone who is very experienced, who is well aware of their personalities and needs, and who is truly passionate about them. Thank you and I hope I get to meet and care for your wonderful pets!Request Po

Ramona » Hi! My name is Ramona and have been a lover of cats since I was five with my first kitty, Fluffy. I’ve had 7 kitties since then! And this includes a couple of ferals (Creampuff and Spunky) that I adopted. Though I love animals, I have a special place in my heart for cats. Over all those years of having pet kitties, I’ve formed a connection with them and have come to know their behaviors, personalities, and how to socialize with them. In fact, whenever I meet someone with a pet kitty, their kitty and I become friends very quickly. I decided to do pet sitting because I have a passion for cats and I wanted to work with one of my passions. My pet sitting experience is with cats but I’ve looked after a couple of the smaller breeds of dogs. Regardless, our pets are family members and we love them as such. I will take care of and love your pets as if my own. Thanks for stopping by and look forward to meeting you!Request Ramona

Sarah » Hi my name is Sarah. Growing up I’ve always wanted animals but my parents wouldn’t let me. As I moved out when I was 18, I got my own pets. I own 6 meows, a parrot, and a dog. I don’t know what I would do without them. They have so much love and affection. I have a few clients of my own for dog walking and pet sitting since 2014. I love this job which makes me happy and would love to get more clients and experiences. I love being outdoors and workout regularly. I treat the animals like they are a human. Leaving your pets at home alone can cause them so much stress and anxiety causing them to become destructive, depressed, and/or excessively hyper.

Sarah » Hi my name is Sarah and to say I’m an animal lover is an understatement. I grew up surrounded by animals. Currently I have 2 sweet kitties of my own with my husband. Our adorable orange rescue boy Tabby (Starlord,) and our sweet rescue girl Tabby (Tinkerbell, pictured) who is currently 17 and healthier and more active than ever. My cats are my children and are EXTREMELY well cared for and spoiled. Over the years I have also become the go to pet sitter/dog walker for friends, family, neighbors, and employers. Animals tend to enjoy being around me and I LOVE being around them. I’ve also cared for a wide variety of animals. From exotic birds, ducks, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, lizards, snakes (I’m actually that weird girl who loves snakes) to tons of adorable cats and dogs (big and small). I also have a particular love for large dog breeds because I grew up with a gentle giant 175lb Great Pyrenees named Goliath who was the family protector. I know pets truly are family and deserve the best love and care available. It would be my absolute pleasure for you to entrust me to care for your furry (or not so furry) family members and I can’t wait to meet them!Request Sarah

Shangita » Hi my name is Shangita and I have been a cat guardian for almost 20 years, as well as the proud parent of parakeets and lots of fish! I fell in love with animals in high school after volunteering at numerous animal shelters in the New Haven, CT area, and caring for my local feral cat colony with the Branford Compassion Club in Branford, CT. I have experience with both indoor and outdoor cats, and those with special needs, diets, behavioral issues, medical issues, etc. I am dedicated to providing a compassionate, enriching, and nurturing environment for your beloved furry family members while you are away from them. When not spending time with furry friends, I am a dedicated surfer and musician. I am currently fostering a lovable Bengal/tabby mix named Bro Cat who loves to accompany me during my early morning pre-surf workouts. I can’t wait to meet your PAWWWsome loved ones!Request Shangita

Andrea » Hello! My name is Andrea and I am very eager to meet your pets and give them the love and care they deserve. I believe that pets are much more than just animals… they are family and they bring so much joy and comfort into our lives. Throughout my childhood I had many goldfish, a rabbit, a few turtles, a lovebird, a mixed terrier and this friendly French Bulldog named Lugo. Quality time is what I absolutely enjoy giving each fur-baby, whether that means going for walks, meeting their needs, playing fetch or just petting them. It’s very important for me to make a genuine connection and build trust with each pet, as they are all unique and special. I’m also a huge advocate for mental health and believe that as much as our pets need us, we also need them to get through life and keep our serotonin levels balanced. With that said, I look forward to caring for your pet and making a difference in their lives!Request Andrea

Jay » Hello, my name is Jay. I love to write music, go on runs, take care of my plants and read during my free time. Currently I work as a songwriter as well as a waiter to earn money while I pursue my passion in writing. I have always loved animals since growing up with two dogs. Taking care of pets is nothing new to me as I’ve been doing it all my life—whether be my childhood dogs, my friend’s pets, or the two black cats I currently own, Mega and Delta. I treat every animal with the love and respect they need and deserve. I am looking forward to meeting you and yours!.Request Jay

Victoria » Hello, my name is Victoria and I am an animal person. I love all pets and animals. When I was growing up, my house was full of pets (dog, cats, rates, reptiles) and I enjoyed taking care of them and spending time with them. Now I have two rats and I love them very much. I always wanted to work with animals or pets, because it makes me really happy to be around them and take a good care of them. It would be my pleasure to take care of your pets, I always find a key to any pet I’ve met so far.Request Victoria

Adrienne » I grew up on a small farm in Rhode Island and our family consisted of, at almost all times, two dogs, three cats, ducks, chickens, geese, a rabbit, parakeets and fish. We even rescued a baby skunk one time. My parents instilled in me and my siblings a compassion for animals. My very first paying job was dog sitting for the neighbors and now I pet sit for friends and co-workers. I have a genuine love of animals, from chihuahuas to newfoundlands, and understand that an animal is more than just a pet; they are a member of your family and need a best friend to help take care of them. You can trust that I will give your pet as much love and attention that you give them yourself.Request Adrienne

Sinead » My name is Sinead! I am a local LA native and can’t imagine a world without animals. My hobbies include gardening, cooking, and hanging with my fury friends. I have several years of experience with dogs, cats, and even fish. No breed is too big, too small, too hyper or too anxious for me. I myself am full of energy and enjoy sharing it with pets but I am also a master of adaptation. We grew up on cats and dogs in our home and it is where I was raised on the ideas of patience and empathy. Aside from my love of animals and nature I have ample professional experience in the workforce. I am punctual, consistent, and attentive at all times. It’s always in the details! I am very much looking forward to meeting you and your pets :)Request Sinead

Sunny » Hi, my name is Sunny and this is Charlie! I rescued him and his brother, Mac, shortly after moving to LA from Boston for grad school. Their mom was neglected so she had her kittens outside in a safer place, meaning my boys were feral for the first few months of their lives. They came to me fearful of all humans, running away at the slightest approach, but after a few months of love, chin scratches, and treats, they are now the most adoring kittens ever! My love for animals has always been strong, and I usually win over even the shyest of pets. I have a huge soft spot for pit bulls, my mom’s service dog is one and he is sweeter than pie. I have experience pet sitting for dogs, cats, fish, and hamsters and I love going on long walks with a pup. I can’t wait to meet you and your fur baby!Request Sunny

Valerie » Hi, my name is Valerie. I have always loved animals. I may be a dog person by nature. My family always had dogs, and then when I was 10 or 11, I got Peruvian guinea pigs and rabbits. I spent a summer with my aunt who had lots of ducks. I loved seeing them waddle up from the pond. I liked to help feed them. I house sat for a family many years ago and I took care of their 19-year-old cat. I had never really been around cats, but I fell in love with her. When I moved to Los Angeles from the Washington, DC area, I soon became the proud companion to a beautiful little guy named Ellington who lived with me for 18 years. After Ellington died, I met Oliver. I put my hand in the cage and he put his paw out and we have been together for 5 years. Ellington and Oliver have enhanced my life. I have given them all the love and care that I could. I can imagine how important your loved one is to you. I will do my best to see that your animal companion is cared for and content. I will be concerned about their safety. I would treat them the way I would my own. I am currently in graduate school to become a chaplain. I enjoy watching and listening to birds.Request Valerie

Anthony » Hey! My name is Anthony. I will admit, my superpower is that all animals love me. I am high energy, always laughing, I love everything around me—basically I'm a Golden Retriever in human form. In the past, I have volunteered at Villalobos in New Orleans and spent plenty of time volunteering at the SPCA in Manama, Bahrain while deployed out for the U.S Coast Guard. I grew up with dogs from terriers to frenchies to Australian Shepherds. But simply, I love and care for all animals. Steve Irwin was my idol growing up and I live my life through his ideology. Thanks for reading and I can't wait to be friends with your pet! Cheers!Request Anthony

Azul » Very fortunately, I have been blessed to live a life surrounded by wonderful animals. Since I can remember my family and I always had a dog or a cat around. In my opinion, it was only only a matter of time before I’d start to put all of my animal caretaking experience to good use. As soon as I could start dog walking as a child, I did. My apartment neighbors who had a Borzoi that stood taller than me at the time were my first clients. When we moved and I started going to high school, I began to petsit my friend’s family’s animals when they’d go out of town every few months. After I graduated, I worked (still work) as a freelance editor for music videos and films and found myself working for clients who eventually I’d petsit/housesit for fairly regularly. Somehow at nearly every point in my life (so far) I’ve found myself with a pet close by. In my experience, I’ve come to learn that every animal I’ve met is truly unique and different. They all require a deep attentiveness and a strong sense of security in their relationships with their people and I wish to give them that. My pets have saved me so many times and kept me from falling off the edge. It feels only right to pay it back the best way I can and give some extra love and attention to the pets out there that really need it.Request Azul

Cassandra » Hi there! My name is Cassandra. I was born and raised in Temecula, but now have lived in LA for over 6 years. Growing up, I’ve always been surrounded by a plethora of animals and therefore have a very special place in my heart for them. I’m that person at a party that is in the corner with the dog/cat/lizard/you name it the whole time. I’ve personally got to own and love many cats, a Yellow Naped Amazon Parrot, Leopard Geckos, Bearded Dragons, tortoises, regular and tropical fish, frogs, and more! Currently I have a Bernedoodle Puppy named Finneas Bean and am taking care of an urban farm in LA (pigs, goats, chickens!). I have always loved helping others fill in the gaps of time that they wish they could be spending with their babies. To me, it’s the greatest job to show your animal the love and attention that they deserve while you are away. And am so happy to do so with LA Pet Sitting!Request Cassandra

Donald » Hello my name is Donald and this is my child Mia. My whole life my mom raised us with different animals mice, cats, dogs, fishes. I always have loved animals and cared for them. Mia was a rescue and she’s been mine for 5 years. At first Mia was shy and now she can’t stay off my bed! Her favorite thing is to get massages with my Thera-gun and soaking in the sun daily. Her favorite thing to do play with string, the thinner it is the crazier she goes! We spend some nights in the yard too for fresh air and allowing her to explore her senses. I always watch her and make sure she doesn’t get in trouble or wander off. Thankfully she never has. Might I add my cat is traumatized from trash bags since I rescued her. I don’t like when animals get abused and I feel the need to always protect these innocent love of our lives. I treat her as family (daughter), and if I could I would have more pets. So if I could bring the joy of caring for others pets in safe hands it would be my pleasure. I would love to give your pet (baby) a Pet-tastic day!Request Donald

Doug » I'm a retired sales manager with a daughter away at college and I live alone. I've been doing some local dog walking and sitting for a few years and enjoy it, always managing to make a friend out of peoples' pets. I'd prefer to work in the Burbank/North Hollywood area and have a few people I walk dogs for with whom I can establish trusting relationships. The one long distance person I sit for has a beach house in Oxnard where I stay to take care of his Old English sheepdog and feed his fish. Its definitely worth the drive! Below is a photo of the sheepdog and I (after a few days we start to resemble each other, I think!).Request Doug

Eli » Hi, I’m Eli! I grew up with a love and respect for animals instilled in me from the very beginning. I was my parents’ second child, after our West Highland Terrier, Chester. When I was a kid I used to draw comic books about Chester and his various adventures, which he never read but I like to think he appreciated. We later adopted two other dogs, Smokey and Scooter, and I considered myself to be one of four brothers; we did almost everything together. Now, being around dogs brings out that same attentiveness and playfulness in me. I’m always extremely zeroed in to their needs and emotional well being. Pictured is myself and Echo, my good friend who happens to belong to my other good friend. Having dog sat Echo recently I can tell you that few things have brought me more pride and fulfillment lately than making sure this little guy had the best week ever (well, as best as it could be without his mom there), and I can assure you that I’ll do the same for your little bundle of fur!Request Eli

Jaime » I have experience with dogs, cats, rodents and reptiles - there isn’t an animal I’ve met that I didn’t love! I have always owned dogs and grew up helping with my family’s dog grooming business - through this I have become familiar with a wide range of breeds, ages, and health needs ranging from active young pitbulls to gentle senior small breeds. I have an especially soft spot for senior dogs as the most special connection I’ve had with an animal was with Layla, a sweet, playful shih tzu who I provided daily medical care for into her old age. I would be honored to give love and care for any of your animals with similar special needs. I also lead a very active lifestyle and would be happy for your more active furry friends to join me on a walk, run or hike! In addition to working with dogs, I have spent a lot of time house sitting and caring for cats, reptiles, and rodents. I myself currently am an enthusiastic rat owner and can be trusted to treat similarly misunderstood animals as if they are my own. I am very flexible in my schedule and the kind of services I can provide and I look forward to meeting you and your pets!Request Jaime

Jess » Pets have always been a big and beautiful part of my life! Growing up I had a sweet and anxious Chihuahua that I helped raise, along with parakeets, a rabbit, and an array of fish. Once I hit my angsty high-school days my step-mom moved in with a cat. I was skeptical at first as I was a “dog person,” but I was quickly found cuddling, playing, and spending all the time I possibly could with that soft and talkative orange fellow. College was a hard time for me because I had no emotional support animals. I would get so excited about literally every dog I would see on the street. So, I started dog walking and pet sitting to help bring in a bit of money and fill my life with the joy that only animals bring. The rest is history. I now have my own two cats, Cricket and Gizmo. They bring much light and fuzz to my world. I also have an adorable Russian tortoise named Hogarth. I am looking forward to meeting new pet pals and giving them the best care and attention while you are away!Request Jess

Naira » Hello, I am Naira and I am a skilled animal lover with a lifetime of experiencing in caretaker roles. I’ve been a mother, a caretaker for the sick and elderly, and of course a caretaker for animal companions of my own. Unfortunately I am no longer with my dogs, so it brings joy, love, and purpose into my life when I care for the pets of others. I hope I can do that for you and I promise to treat your animal companions like family.Request Naira
