I recently received a call from a reader who is interested in the position of pet caregiver.
I do not personally know this individual and have only spoken to her on the phone.
These are her credentials:
"My husband and I are interested in taking care of a small, nonaggressive dog or two dogs for an owner or owners who can no longer keep their pets. We would provide these pets with the best of care. Our dog, a Havanese, is 14 years old. We had a Maltese 12 years old who passed away. She had Cushings Disease. We have a residence in a gated community. The house has a yard and a doggie dog which provides 24 hour access to the outside area. Previously, we have volunteered at rescues, Van Nuys, California and West Palm Beach, Florida in working with large and small dogs. We have assisted in their training and socialization. We have fostered a number of dogs home to prepare them for their new homes. My husband works from home as a graphic artist. He has designed, photographed dogs and maintained a dog rescue website. I have been a guidance counselor and am currently taking classes in the medical field. We have no children. Both of us spend a lot of time home or taking our dog to the park or out for walks. We have access to an excellent veterinarian."
If you are in need of a caregiver for your pet and have any interest in speaking with her about this opportunity, contact me.
