Pet Sitter in Lehigh Acres, Florida
My name is Ann & it's nice to meet you. I have spent decades loving & caring for animals of many types... Dogs, Cats, Horses, some farm animals, Fish, Sugar Gliders, Ferrets, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Gerbils, Mice, etc... I absolutely love animals and they sense that because they love me back very quickly. I find animals are filled with unconditional love, playful energy, and a need for affection and attention, which is more than I can say about most people.
I'm an honest & reliable 54-year-old responsible adult. I respect other people's property, instructions & rules. Unfortunately, I live on SSI which means my schedule is wide open & I need the income!
I'm from NYC, but I've lived in Lehigh Acres for 11 years and have access to transportation when I need it. I would love to look after your adorable pet(s) if you can't be there yourself. I believe it's important to care for animals in familiar surroundings where they feel comfortable & their routine doesn't change.
When I was 11 years old, my first paid job was dog walking for neighbors in NYC. My career working with animals had begun!
I have many years of experience with SPECIAL NEEDS ANIMALS as well & can administer medications safely. I've worked with blind dogs & cats. I owned a diabetic German Shepard needing daily insulin injections. My favorite cat was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider to his face. He's got a scar, otherwise, my baby is perfect. I've also administered post-operative care, wound care, and physical therapy for a black Lab/Ciao mix after requiring knee surgery as a puppy.
While not a licensed or professional animal trainer, I am happy to reinforce any training regimen you have in place. I love to get down on the floor or grass and just smother them with love and affection. I keep them engaged and play on their level. I have no problems or fear caring for any size and breed of dog.
If you need anything else cared for while you're away (housesitting, plant watering, pool maintenance, light cleaning, receiving mail, and packages, etc...). Please ask & we can work something out! Everything is negotiable!
I'm excited to talk to you soon. Thanks for your time!
