Born and raised in Palm Springs and the surrounding desert community, I grew up around animals and have been caring for them since I was young for family and friends. My cat, Cuddles, chose me when she was a 6-week-old kitten in 2002 and has been my furry princess ever since. I love going to concerts, musicals, and movies, and it is not unusual for me to grab a pair of Mickey ears and take a spur of the moment jaunt down to Disneyland (my home away from home) whenever I have a chance. In my down time though, nothing beats curling up on the couch with my furball and reading a book or having a Netflix marathon. Currently living in Palm Desert, I also work in Group Housing/Billing at the Westin in Rancho Mirage and watch the pets of coworkers, family members, and friends whenever I am able. I love the opportunity to meet and love new animals through pet sitting, and am excited to work with Fetch to meet and care for even more animals!
Was born in England. Attended Private School through High School and then Sorbonne University and Cordon Bleu School of Cuisine in Paris.
In London worked various Personal Assistant positions, including
General Assistant to The Beatles for seven years!! This included
caring for a mixed bag of their pets - including at one time , a donkey and a monkey!
Moved to the U.S. - Los Angeles, in 1982 and became an American Citizen. I worked in Family Business as a Pastry Chef and formed my own Landscape Design Business.
Moved to the Desert in 2014. I worked at the Pegasus Therapeutic Ranch, working with challenged children and horses. This was
a remarkable experience witnessing the calming effect when the
children were mounted on the horses.
Throughout my life there have always been family animals. Many wonderful dogs and then cats joined the household. I recently lost my wonderful companion - a Dachshund/Chihuaha mix, at the
age of 21!!! I am a devoted animal lover . I love the independent spirits of the cats, and the unconditional love of dogs. Truth be told, they are higher on the totem pole for me than people!!!
At FETCH I am looking forward to meeting some wonderful pets
and helping to make their days fun and stress-free - as well as their owners.
All my pets have inspired me to ensure all animals receive the best care possible. I really enjoy meeting "pet" people and their pets. My goal is for you and your pets to always have someone you can count on to provide the care and service you deserve.
My name is Kendra and this is Rylee my Louisiana Leopard dog. I have had a passion for animals big and small since I was very young. Owning everything from fish, to rats to cats and puppies!
Hi! My name is Maurie, and I'm a local resident in Palm Springs. I'm originally from Rhode Island but after 18 years I decided to move to sunny California! I've always loved warm weather, sunshine, being outside and enjoying nature so what better place than here in Coachella Valley! I'm a very energetic and smiley person, I love being outside, going on hikes and I am very passionate about art and enjoy painting/crafting. I absolutely love animals, and I've been fortunate enough to have had dogs and cats all my life, so I'm extremely comfortable around any breed/size. Pet care and animals is something I'm very passionate about and I think it so important to do things you really care about and have passion for. I'm here to make sure your pets get the best care when you're not there! Trustworthy care for your pets and providing you peace of mind is what I'm all about.
Hi my name is Sandee and I recently moved back to Southern California after being away for 14 years. I am now a full-time desert resident and happy to be home. I have worked in the "people" healthcare my whole professional life. I intend to bring my integrity, compassion and passion to pet care. I truly believe that our animal friends make us better humans. They are such an important part of the family. I love them passionately and treasure my time with them.
My name is Stacie and I recently moved to the desert from Michigan. I moved with my husband, cat Gordy, and my dove Gracie. I started working with animals when I was in High school and went on to college where I obtained my veterinary technician license. In the past 15 years as a licensed veterinary technician I have had the opportunity to work in general practice, emergency, and specialty where I worked in the oncology department along with pet sitting on the side. In my free time I enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, and traveling.
Hi there! My name is Susan McDonald, and I have three grown daughters and three grandsons. My husband and I have recently moved to Palm Desert from the Santa Cruz area in Northern California . I was a pet sitter for many pet owners in that area, before our move to the desert. I also was raised with dogs and cats being part of our home. I have a love for all animals, but a certain place in my heart will always belong to my Westie, Max, who passed away over a year ago. We have our wonderful girl, Bailey, who is a six year old lab, who we love dearly and spoil her like crazy. I know how precious and important these little furry family members are, and each one of them is a blessing!!! I also know the worry when your pet is home alone and needs some love, care and attention while you are away. I am excited to be working with Fetch, and provide your pets with care that is the next best thing to you being home with them.🐾🐾
