We are a responsible, mature couple (ages 50 and 35) looking for longer term house caring opportunities in California, Oregon and Washington near larger cities.
We both have long histories of animal care. Rachel ran a dog kennel for many years. Scott has been caring for dogs and cats since 8th grade, starting out as a dog walker, then doing multiple house sits while in high school and beyond.
We are both college educated (Rachel has a masters in psychology, Scott a BM in music composition). Rachel is a painter of visionary art work using oils, and Scott composes contemporary classical music and is aspiring to be a pianist some day (practicing towards it.) Scott is the artistic director for a new music series, and prefers to be in one of the major west coast cities.
We would love to house sit for you and care for your precious animal companions while you are away for an extended period. But we have to bring our own beloved companion who will love being there too and making new friends. Her name is Sophie and she is a 20-year-old African Grey parrot. She stays in a small cage and will not cause any damage to your property. She is very low maintenance and gets along swimmingly with both dogs and cats, having lived with some before.
Please consider having us as your housecarers so we can spend some time focusing on our dedicated art and create amazing works while at your place! We are also very happy to help with outdoor chores, gardening, etc. And if it is of interest to you, we both enjoy a 100% plant-based diet.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
Scott and Rachel
