One thing I have learned in life, I always take time for animals. I have rescued 83 strays running loose on the streets to date and found all but three of them their owners. I believe in giving back to our community and work with the Pet Rescue Center and The Ark of San Juan rescues.

I think we all need animals to have a complete and fulfilling life. I have had pets in and out of my whole life and they all have had an impact on the quality of my life.

As an owner of several "Special Need" pets it was always tough to find someone to stay with my pets while I was on vacation. So what better way to spend my time than to start a Pet Companion business! I decided it was time to give back to other pets the love and companionship they all crave when their family is gone. Every pet I encounter leaves a little paw print on my heart and I will carry that with me the rest of my life and I hope the pets I care for feel the same.

I have always loved animals and had pet’s all my life. When I was growing up, I would bring home stray cats and dogs and tell my mom they followed me. I raised two Siamese cats that lived to be 21 and 25 years old.

I’ve also had cats that were diabetic, and elderly cats with special needs. I know how to administer medication and give shots. Before I started to work for OC Pet Companions I had my own pet sitting business and took care of the neighborhood dogs, cats, turtles and fish.

Last year my husband and I adopted a 10-year-old cat named Huxley from the shelter. Huxley was not adoptable and ready for euthanization since he was a senior cat with health problems. We took care of his health problems and he has given our lives such happiness and fulfillment.

Pet sitting is a rewarding experience that I cherish and look forward to each and every day. Animals provide us with unconditional love. Whenever I walk into a client’s home and there pets start wagging their tail and licking my face because they are happy to see me, it makes my day. Animals are truly our best friends.

I grew up with animals so it should be no surprise that I am a pet sitter. My real joy is meeting a new pet and spending time getting to know them. I consider animals as little people with fur. They each have their own personalities and likes and learning about each and every one makes my time with them go by too fast! Animals bring happiness into our lives and love us unconditionally and I feel honored to get the chance to meet so many pets on a regular basis.

If I am your pet sitter, you can be assured lots of love and attention will be the order of the day! It’s the only way I know how to do it!

My name is Tery Scovel and I live in Costa Mesa, CA My love for animals is truly in my blood. I was the kind of kid that would always sneak lil’ strays into the house and I’d give them a little milk, until I’d get caught and my parents would take them to the shelter. But again; when/if I found another stray; I would sneak them in and give them a little milk. As an adult I began working in an Animal hospital as a kennel attendant. We also ran the city Animal Shelter. Before long, I was promoted to Veterinary Technician and worked as a technician for the next 14-15 years and did pet sitting as well. I bonded with so many of my patients/clients. It's been very rewarding. Each one of them has left a paw print in my heart. I have owned many dogs and cats, fish , hamsters, guinea pigs, birds, rabbits, reptiles, etc.. Over the years. I currently have 3 Labs, one female two males. Our lives (my husband and I) completely revolve around them. We involve them in everything we do. If we take a vacation it is a must that we bring our dogs. They are a complete asset to our lives. If for some reason we could not bring our fur babies with us, I would be comforted in knowing that there was someone as loving and caring and compassionate with my pets as I will be with yours.

Since I was a very young boy, I have always been drawn to animals and animals have been drawn to me. I truly believe that animals can sense when a person has a loving heart and soul. I have a very unique kinship and understanding of dogs and cats and have been told on many occasions that people can't believe how much animals really love me. I absolutely love animals and will provide the utmost safe and loving pet sitting services available.

Animals are a huge part of my life and I will do everything in my power to make sure they have a safe, clean, comfortable and fun pet sitting experience. It is my personal mission to provide safe, responsible and loving care for your pets just as if they were my own. Plan your next trip with the peace of mind that your beloved dog or cat is going to be safe and well cared for. I know the feeling - my kitty is my baby and I wouldn't want anything less than a responsible and loving pet sitter for her. I look forward to meeting pet guardians and their pets and would love to have the privilege of caring for your furry friends.

My friends and family are always saying that their pets love me more than they love them! And that's probably true.

Animals are truly amazing, they are very sensitive creatures. They listen without interrupting you; they are always interested in what you're doingand why. They are always happy to see you whether it's been five minutes or a week. They love you unconditionally no matter what and don't pass judgement.

I have been the neighborhood pet sitter since we moved to Cot de Caza and have been doing professional pet sitting for eight years. I owned my own pet sitting business before I joined the O.C. Pet Companion family. We currently have 3 dogs , Jasper (our white boxer), Cassie (our dark brindle boxer) and Zoe (our Chihuahua aka The Tasmanian Devil.

It's never a dull moment around our house!! But, I can't imagine my life without them.

I love my job as a pet sitter and I'm good at it, this is what I was meant to do. I also take what I do very seriously. It's a huge responsibility not only to take care of someone's pets, but also their homes! I know what it's like to leave my loved ones and my home in the care of someone else's hands, especially for the first time. It's a very scary and unsettling feeling. I will take care of your babies and home like how I would want someone to take care of my home, and that's with lots of love, care, compassion, respect and detail.

Pets (dogs in particular) have been a part of my life for many, many years and without them there would be an enormous void. Somehow, all dogs that I meet seem to know this instinctively. While working in a veterinary office some years ago, I realized I had to make pets a part of my life forever. Having the opportunity to have the unconditional love and affection of pets belonging to others is really a daily joy for me. It is insightful and rewarding beyond belief.

I grew up having animals in my family my whole life. We always had a couple of dogs, a cat and possibly a stray that I would find along the way. When I got married and had children of my own we got a dog as soon as my kids were old enough to understand how to love, treat and care for animals.

I really enjoy pet sitting because I love animals and feel it is very important that they receive the love, care and attention they need when their owners are away. Animals give us unconditional love and they are truly are best friends.

Growing up to oldest of six we always had dogs, birds and sometimes chickens around. It wasn’t until college that cats came into my life and have never left. Right now I have a parrot, 2 cats and 7 finches………and what would I do without them. Working with OC Pet Companions now brings me closer to the only creatures that truly give ‘unconditional love’ no matter who you are, what you do, how old you are etc. …… I can never pass a friendly four legged creature without petting and playing with them.

A relatively 'new kid on the block' I’m so excited to have joined Ruth Ann and the very caring professional staff at OC Pet Companions. We can exchange stories, information, get advice, and know there are qualified persons to help us whenever needed. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy walking, sitting, pampering and loving all the pets that I take care of and look forward to all that will enrich my life in the future.

My name is Ivy Melton and my pets and I live in Mission Viejo CA. I have owned dogs and cats and horses most of my life. Our dogs are our children and we love them so much. I would love to have the opportunity to spoil and love your little and (BIG) ones also.

I believe that pets are happier and less stressed when they stay in their home, and keep as close as possible to their normal routines. In the past I’ve had my pets in the care of a pet sitter when I was away. And I know that it made me feel better knowing that they had their own toys, food, bedding, and comforting reminders of me while I was gone.

Through my work at Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy and my role as a pet sitter with OC Pet Companions, my life revolves around pets. I have been a professional pet sitter for over ten years and love caring for pets and providing great service to our clients.

I have been trained to provide sub-cutaneous fluids and diabetes injections so can offer that extra level of care that some clients need. I currently share my own home with four cats, including two rescues.
