Hi! We are Jake and Amy, and over the past 10 years we have cared for the homes, pets, and property of many families. These families consistently ask for us to return, and are thankful for the security and peace of mind that our presence provides.

We have experience with dogs, cats, chickens and roosters, chicks, ducks, geese, goats, and fish (and are always willing to learn)! We are comfortable administering medication and have cared for elderly animals. Jake is an avid gardener who has worked with a variety of plants - flowers, vegetable-bearing, and fruit-bearing. We have cared for property on well and septic systems, used solar-powered electricity, wood-burning stoves, and compost.

We are location independent and own an online business which allows us to spend time caring for your animals and property.

We are both non-smokers, have no dependents, and no pets. Being in our late twenties and early thirties, we are energetic, yet we are also responsible and trustworthy (as is demonstrated by our extensive experience and references). We speak Spanish with moderate proficiency, and some conversational Italian, French, and American Sign Language.

We can't wait to hear from you!
