Marissa's love for animals began at a very early age. "There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion! I am a proud pet mamma 3 dogs, Ellie, Samantha and Rocky. They are my fur kids and have me wrapped around their little paws."
Over the years, friends and family have entrusted their precious pets in her care because they trusted her abilities and knew that she would treat their pets as you would your own. Spending her days with cats and dogs is the ultimate job. Kind of hard to even call it a “job.” Who can resist waggs and purrs, wet kisses and lap naps? Pet sitting and dog walking is Marissa's profession, livelihood and her business.
Marissa began fostering at a young age. After over 30 dogs that now have loving, forever homes, and a new leash on life, she explained that fostering those dogs was the most life-fulfilling thing she's ever done. "I watched them come into rescue sad, lost, hurting and just wanting to be loved. With loving care and patience they blossomed, regaining faith in their human counterparts.
As a pet lover myself I understand the difficulty of finding someone who will care for your pets and respect your home. My clients can rest assure that they will be provided the highest degree of professionalism and heartfelt pet care for their four-legged family members. All pets are unique and deserve undivided attention," said Marissa.
Marissa has many references who will gladly speak of her compassion and abilities to care for animals, her dedication and her high-moral values. I provide the utmost quality pet care for responsible pet parents. If you have a bored pooch and need daily dog walks, give Pampered Pups by Marissa a call. When you’re ready to go on vacation, she will not only treat your pets like her own, but I will closely monitor your home and property.
These dogs are important members of our staff here, they keep us all inline. Without these girls, we would have to chase our own squirrels! When not working, Ellie & Samantha enjoy chasing tennis balls, Frisbee’s, and getting lots of pictures taken of themselves!

Hi, my name is Dave. I have been house & petsitting for over 25 years. I have a background in the insurance and medical fields, but a lifelong love for animals of all kinds, I am an active foster parent and on the Board of Directors with Home at Last Dog Rescue. One of the most exciting things I've done recently was fostered a pregnant 2 year old Shepard, she had 11 puppies that I loved & cared for from birth to 8 weeks. Not only did i see them grow from birth but I was there to care for them through it all, late night feedings & sleepless nights. They all went to fabulous homes and I keep in contact with all the adoptive families.

Hi, my name is Christine! I am a college student who adores all types of animals. Away at school, I was missing my pets so what better way to find a job doing something I love: pet sitting! Although I am a new member, ever since I was little, I pet sat for multiple families around my neighborhood. I have 1 dog and 2 cats who I absolutely love. I recently got a golden doodle named Dollie over Quarantine who I spoil to death. I can not wait to meet and love your furry friends just like my own!

Pets: Cat named Snickers
Hello there! My name is Natalie. I have been dog sitting for at least 4 years now. Meanwhile, I have my hands full at home with my own fur babies. I have my cat (Snickers), then my family has two dogs (Shelby and Bruno), another two cats (Coconut and Nala), and 2 guinea pigs, (Chiller and Squeaker). Even with my pets, it's never stopped me from helping watch someone else’s before. My love for any animal is completely endless. I think it's very important to make sure your pets feel safe and comfortable while you're away. Whether it be for the day or the week, your pets should feel happy and secure. While dog sitting I love going on walks, going to the park to play, and even some bathing and grooming (if needed)! Although, nothing can compare to those movie nights, snuggled on the couch. I am a fairly bubbly, creative, and down to earth person. Pampered pups by Marissa has given me this fantastic opportunity to spread joy to other animals.

Furry friends are my best friends, I'm happiest when I'm spending time with my furry friends, love taking my dog hiking and to parks to hang out. All my furry friends have been recused animals, including rats at one point, and yes rats! They are actually super intelligent and fun to play with. Chopper has many challenges with anxiety, aggression with other dogs and likes to charge at cars and amazon trucks, so I have had to learn new ways how to support my dog with training and understanding what triggers my dog and how to support him while we are out in public, it's not perfect but his behaviors have improved a great deal with training, meds and lots of love. I also am the crazy lady who talks to farm animals, I absolutely love going to the farm to see all the farm animals it's one of my favorite things to do and my kids totally make fun of me. love spending time with family and friends, hiking, traveling, and learning how to cook new recipes. I’m also a business owner and that allows me to have flexible hours for my kids and that’s when I get to be very creative. I'm very excited to meet and spend time with your furry friends, you can trust that I will give them lots of love while you are away and probably have many conversations with them

Hello! My name is Nicole and ever since I was a kid, I've had a passion for animals. Now that I am an adult, I am still just as committed to animals and love all pets. Unfortunately though, I live in an apartment that doesn't allow any pets, so pet sitting is my outlet!! I have experience with pet sitting/dog walking as well as extended overnights. I love walking park trails and getting outside with dogs, but also love curling up on the couch and giving lots of love. If it were my decision, I would be around animals all day so I am more excited to meet all your furry friends!!

Hi! My name is Gabby, I’ve been caring for animals in some way or another for as long as I can remember, scooping up injured birds, skunks, groundhogs, mice, and squirrels and taking them to wildlife centers. My grandmother gifted me my first pet, a kitten, when I was 5 years old and I’ve been hooked ever since! The love of my life is my pitbull named Ziggy who enjoys my hobbies with me by modeling for my pet photography and illustrations. Our favorite thing to do together is hike in the woods and take in the scenery. I have 7 years of experience caring for a range of dogs from German shepherds and boxers to chihuahuas and mini doodles, as well as cats and small animals. I love to see every animal’s individual personality shine the more I get to know them! I look forward to meeting your pets, and making sure all their needs are met! :)
