As the owner and operator of APC&HS, I would be honored to give great care to your pet(s) while you are away.
I am a non-smoker, full of energy to keep up with active dogs, have dependable transportation, and cover much of Hillsborough County, FL.
Thank you for your consideration in the important matter of your pets' care.

I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver the best service for you and your pets... whether they have fur, feathers, or scales.
I take my duties very seriously. That is why I earned the "Dog and Cat First Aid" certification by the American Red Cross AND the "Pet First Aid" certification by the American Safety & Health Institute. I am also insured through Pet Sitters Associates, LLC (PSA), ID #20476 (renewal).
Because I truly love what I do, I promise not to "skimp" on the time spent with your pets. They will receive quality time with me, to include lots of love, affection, and playtime.
I was born and raised in Florida, and have experienced the joy that comes from always having pets in my life -- to include dogs, cats, rabbits, fish, a guinea pig, hamsters, and even ducks.
As my kitty, Trouble, told you on the home page, I volunteer my time doing TNR (trap-neuter-return), to help control our homeless/feral cat population. I believe TNR gets to the root of the overpopulation problem, to keep fewer cats and kittens out of the shelters, thereby reducing our area's euthanasia rate.
I do not currently have a dog in my home, but that's only because a couple of my cats are elderly, and "run" my house. I have shared my home with many dogs in years past.
I am a lover of ALL animals, to include cows, pigs, turkeys, and chickens.
I have given CPR to a wild lizard, after I accidentally drowned him while washing my car. Yes, you read right.... I actually revived a lizard via CPR! And I must admit that the moment he took that first deep breath and opened his tiny eyes was one of the proudest times of my life.
Does this intense compassion for animals make me a strange person? Absolutely! But I'm perfectly fine with that. :-)
