About María

Hi there! I'm Maria, an animal enthusiast with a deep connection to every furry companion I meet. I believe in providing animals with the care, love, and respect they deserve, recognizing them as cherished members of our families. Throughout my life, animals have been my constant companions, shaping my values of compassion, empathy, kindness, and respect towards all creatures.

My lifelong dedication to animals began in my childhood, where growing up surrounded by pets taught me invaluable lessons about their needs and unique personalities. This early bond inspired me to extend my care and love to stray dogs in my home country, a journey supported by my mother since I embarked on this path at a young age. While my rescued dogs now reside with her, you can view pictures of them in my gallery, including a tribute to my beloved Sasha, who shared my life for a remarkable ten years and five months. Her memory is forever cherished, symbolized by a tattoo on my arm.

Drawing from extensive experience in pet sitting and dog walking, I ensure the safety and well-being of every furry companion under my care. I tailor my services to meet each pet's individual needs and requirements, providing a nurturing and secure environment for them to thrive. Additionally, I am adept at administering medications for pets, ensuring their health needs are meet with precision and care.

As a dedicated pet sitter entrusted with the well-being of pets in their own homes, I understand the importance of adapting to the unique needs of each client. I am committed to delivering personalized care and attention to your beloved furry friend, creating a positive and enriching experience for them while you're away.

I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Sustainable Development at Sussex University. Due to my academic commitments, I am available from Thursday to Monday, offering flexible care options over the weekend to accommodate your needs.

In summary, the services I offer include:

🐾Walking 3-4 dogs simultaneously to provide individualized care and attention to each furry friend.

🐾Customized feeding schedules tailored to each pet's specific requirements.

🐾Administering medications to ensure your pet's health needs are properly addressed. (If needed).

🐾Home visits: available for extended stays on my days off, including watering plants upon request.

🐾 Open to look after all types of pets.

🐾 Regular updates including adorable pictures of your beloved friend sent via WhatsApp.

I am excited about the opportunity to provide exceptional care for your furry family member and look forward to the chance to create a positive and nurturing environment for them in your absence!

All the best,

Maria. 🐾

I speak English & Spanish
+10 years of experience
I'm deeply passionate about animals, especially dogs. I've rescued over 20 strays from the streets of Colombia, taking them into my home, nursing them back to health, and finding them loving forever homes. I truly believe animals can sense our energy and feel our love. My strong bond with animals allows me to understand their needs instinctively. During my time in Colombia, I volunteered at a foundation dedicated to helping dogs and cats, where we conducted street rescues and organized donations of food and medicine for stray animals. Despite studying business administration, my lifelong dream has always been to become a veterinarian. My passion for animals drives me to pursue opportunities to make a positive impact on their well-being.
