Summer Pet-Sitter, Experienced, BS Wildlife Biology, Available All Season

Pet Sitter in Columbia

It is my objective to provide the highest care possible to your dog, cat, rodents, fish, amphibians, etc. in your absence. Below is my resume from undergraduate studies. I will be in Columbia all summer working with oven bird populations for research purposes, and I consider this pet-sitter job to be an excellent way to save to adopt my own dog to replace my shepherd who died last fall. Please contact me if you feel I am the right person to care for your family pets. Education University of Missouri- Columbia, B.S.
