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.

Hi! My name is Jennifer. After a 33-year career in the legal field, I decided to take a leap of faith and do something that I am passionate about – taking care of animals! I have had 10 dogs of various breeds, sizes and personalities over the last 30 years. During the COVID crisis, I found myself with a lot of time on my hands. I spent that time (15-20 hours a week for almost 15 months) working with a Pitbull named Gloria who lived the last 4 years of her life in a kennel because she was deemed “unadoptable.” I am so happy to report that as of January, 2021, Gloria came home to our family as a “forever foster.” I look forward to meeting and caring for your pet as if they were my own

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 Alexis and I’m so excited to be a part of this team, working with animals and being paid for it is a dream come true. My first job ever was really at age 9 where i would go to my moms friends house and help her take care of her horses. My pay was being able to ride whenever I wanted. Her one horse and I had gotten so close I would just lay on her back without a saddle and let her take me wherever she wanted. My passion in this life has truly been animals no matter what, and I am so happy to be working with them professionally. I have had every animal you can think of in my own home including snakes and lizards. We used to have goats, chickens and a few birds. You name the animal and I have probably had one or currently do have them. With each new pet I made it a mission to educate and research everything about them in order to give them the best care. I also have a son, who I never raised to ever be afraid of any animal and instead taught him how to respectfully love all animals we cross paths with, even spiders, they eat the mosquitoes after all. I look forward to meeting your pets and loving them like my own

Hello! My name is Rachel! I am super passionate about animals. As soon as I see a pup out and about I light up as if I just won a million dollars. In my eyes, it feels like I have because seeing the overload of cuteness makes me extremely happy. I watch my cousins and family friends dogs all the time and have worked at a doggy daycare where every dog perked up at even the sound of my voice. The care and love I gave them, is what does it. Other than the treats (Obviously lol). I used to own the sweetest cockapoo named Trixie. She was my world. I treated her like the princess she was and I can’t wait to do the same with your wonderful pets.
