Hi! I'm Pam. Thanks for considering me to care for your loving pets and watch over your home. I am an executive for a non-profit organization in the United States. My current position is to head a new program to lift youth out of homelessness in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My role is to build the program, manage construction and raise the funds required to open the program. I have been in non-profit all of my career focused on helping kids and adults with disabilities and those who are homeless.
It is heartbreaking to know how many amazing, loving animals are homeless and living in shelters. I do my part to help in this area as well--attached are photos of my rescue kitties Alley and Slash (the ginger cat man...)
Why I want to house sit
I'm thrilled to have found trusted house sitters! I have a very deep love of travel that includes learning local culture, cuisine, the arts and meeting local people who love their town/city. House sitting affords me the opportunity to give love to pets and experience new areas throughout the world from the eyes of a local!
I am an absolute lover or all animals and have been since I was a little girl. I've had many loving pets including dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles and fish. I've always loved horses and riding as well. I've been the proud mom of four labrador retrievers (Skylar, Cooper, Jack and Sonny) all of which lived well into the adulthood of 15 and 16 years. Health, exercise, diet and love make for a long and happy life. I currently have my two rescue kitties Alley and Slash, both of whom are happy, healthy and loving. I'm currently researching a pet first aide certification.
I've had experience pet sitting with dogs, cats, fish and birds through friends, relatives and co-workers. I'm the first they call knowing their pets are in loving and capable hands !
My second love --behind animals --is travel. I love meeting local people, tasting local cuisine and learning about local and regional landscape and sites. I've had the opportunity to travel the US with my company visiting most U.S. states including Alaska and Hawaii. I love the Caribbean and have also visited Italy and France. Learning the new culture and meeting new people is exciting and fulfilling.
I am extremely active and love bicycling, walking, hiking, yoga, cooking, skiing, golf, scuba, swimming and a good novel tops off the evening.
My friends, colleagues, and family would tell you I am extremely conscientious, take great care of my home and belongings and have tremendous respect for others and their property. My goal --whether in a hotel, resort or vacation rental home --is to have those who welcomed me happy that I was their guest and shared their home/property. And my friends LOVE when I visit but not as much as their pets! I'm the "one" that all animals seem to gravitate to.
I hope you will consider me to house/pet sit. Any new furry friend in my life makes it more meaningful.
