I have spent most of my adult life in the corporate world and decided that my passion for animals was too great not to pursue a career that involved them. I started Sunshine Pet Sitters so that I can combine my incredible love for animals into an invaluable service to both you and your pet. I know that I require the best of the best when it comes to my own animals, and the same will go for your pet.
With over 20 years of experience caring for animals, I have come to realize that pets are like people and experience stress, boredom, loneliness, anxiety and depression. I believe that your pet's emotional well-being is closely tied to their physical health. These symptoms, in addition to being unpleasant in themselves, are notorious for causing health and behavior problems in household pets. By listening to your pet's needs and "tuning in" to their emotional state while they are under our care, we are better able to give them what they need to feel satisfied and comfortable while you are away. Whether it's exercise, affection, playtime, or just a little bit of company, we listen and respond in the best way we can to your pet's needs.
We also have experience giving insulin injections for diabetics as my own cat was diagnosed with diabetes recently.
In our own way, we take care of you, as well. Our Pet Updates detail the shenanigans and noteworthy events that transpire during each visit. Depending on your travel plans, we will email each day's journal entries to you at the end of the day, so you can stay connected with your pet's busy life. We know how important that connection is, and we do our best to alleviate any separation anxiety that may occur on your part.
Sunshine Pet Sitters is fully insured and bonded with great references. We are avid readers of many pet journals, books, web sites and message boards who have access to a variety of resources for finding answers to all of your pet concerns.
