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 guys, we would have to chase our own squirrels! When not working, Ellie, Samantha and Rocky 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.
