Pet Sitter in Provo

Having worked as an editor for the past 8 years with pets at home, I know it can be hard to balance both work and pets or to go on vacation with a home full of critters. I'd like to make this easier for you now that I have more time on my hands, while also making it possible for good animals to stay in good homes where they're already loved. I also know it can be hard to leave your home and animals in the care of others, and I hope I can be a solution you feel comfortable with. I grew up with cats, dogs, newts, mice, and a rat, and since then, I have loved taking horseback riding lessons and volunteering with Best Friends Animal Sanctuary's pigs, horses, and other animals. I'd thoroughly enjoy loving your critters for you as much as I love my own. As an editor, I have a superb attention to detail and will make sure to follow your instructions precisely. Frequent picture and text updates can keep you apprised of how much fun your pets are having with me and how relaxed they are in my attentive care. My husband and I now have two cats and two dogs of our own, and I am a member of/support several pet-welfare organizations, like the ASPCA, World Vets, the Humane Society, and Rescue Pit. I am a huge proponent of kindness and humane treatment for all creatures. Both of our dogs were already seniors when we adopted them, so I am very used to administering oral medications and meeting unique feeding and other needs. One of our dogs, Juneau, was a scared, abused street dog who is now blind. We have loved seeing him open up and learn how to be a happy pet under our care. There is a special place in my heart for the especially shy, wary dogs and the elderly with special needs. I was a psychology minor in college, which included animal behavioral psychology, and I am extremely patient and encouraging with animals, as this is the most effective way to gain trust and shape positive behavior. I also received an ethics award as an editor for speaking up when I was overpaid. I can guarantee that I will treat your home and pets the way I expect my own to be treated. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions about my qualifications or how I can help you! Several references available.

I have never met someone who loves animals more than Mindy. Caring for the animal community is not just a hobby of hers; it is her passion. She has pets of her own, and she feeds the stray cats in her neighborhood. And she and her husband spend time volunteering at animal shelters. Mindy is also responsible and trustworthy. Owners can feel comfortable leaving their pets in her hands. Mindy once asked me to take care of her cat, Sophie, while she and her husband were out of town. She made sure I had all of the instructions and information I needed (and yes, that included instructions on what to feed the stray cats). But most importantly, Mindy wanted to make sure that Sophie got the attention she needed. She asked me to spend an hour or so with Sophie every day to make sure she didn't get lonely. Mindy didn't just want her cat to be fed; she wanted her cat to be loved. Without hesitation, I would recommend Mindy as a caregiver for any animal. She is full of compassion, and she will do everything she can to make animals feel safe and comfortable. Owners could not ask for a more perfect caregiver for their pets.

We hired Mindy to watch our 5 fur babies while we went to a family reunion out of state. We have 4 cats and a house bunny. When she came to meet us she brought a notebook and pen and took detailed notes. She is very gentle and sweet with the pets and they absolutely love her! She did everything we asked and more. She sent me daily reports and photo's which helped tremendously since it's so hard for us to leave our pets behind. Mindy is excellent with animals and very thorough in her work. My husband and I are extremely happy to have found the perfect pet sitter, now we can travel! We will definitely use Mindy anytime we need a pet sitter and we highly recommend her to care for your pets as well.

Mindy is uniquely caring and generous in spirit, especially when it comes to animals. On top of this, she is very conscientious and dedicated. I can't think of a better person to hire as a pet-sitter!
