about Me

I like to make pets happy. I provide exercise, care, and sincere affection. 

I also like to make pet owners happy. I provide peace of mind and great customer service. 

Happy pets and happy owners equal emptier shelters. It’s how I help strengthen my community. 

I’ve cared for a variety of domestic pets for over 30 years. Some for a fee, many for free, all with the objective of giving them as much love and respect as possible.

I’ve cared for them in all stages, from birth to end of life. Each one made me a better human.

How can I help you and your pet today?

Testimonials

"I'm kind of a big deal." ~ Ron Burgundy
Black small dog and Brown big dog

“Leah has been helping our family for over a year now! She is always punctual, kind, and responsive. She has always been flexible with us when we need her last minute. We have her over at least once a week, but usually two to three times. We would highly recommend her!”

Rachel M.

Wag Client

“Leah is incredible! She took care of my two cats while I was away for 3 days. It was my first trip away after being new to the area, making me nervous to leave them, but Leah made it so much easier. She took great care of the cats, making sure they had everything they needed. And she sent me updates every day. Leah really made all of the difference and I couldn’t recommend her more. I am so glad to have met her and I know the cats will look forward to her visit in the future! Thanks, Leah!”
