Lin’s Bio

I am a true animal lover.  I am 60 years old and have always had dogs and cats in my life.  I am a Friendship APL volunteer and foster parent, a past 4 H dog club advisor, as well as the co owner of a small farm in southern Lorain County where we have raised every animal imaginable with the exception of pigs.  I have recently retired and would like to earn a little extra money by watching small children and/or animals.

With 14 cats (11 of whom were strays/ferals that we rescued 3 years ago and 2 of those requiring daily meds), we knew that ours was a unique situation. Our 11 new additions had bonded with us, but we couldn't be sure how they'd respond to a new caregiver (especially when it came time to give critical meds). We interviewed a number of people, but Lin was the only one that left both of us with a good feeling. She interacted well with the kids and showed great sensitivity with regard to their feelings. Her experience at the local animal shelter exposed her to animals who had come from different situations so she was used to dealing with those who could be more difficult to handle. To alleviate concerns about how the kids would respond to her, she visited twice before our vacation so that she could bond with them and make certain that she was able to give the 2 cats their meds. She was successful on both counts. The kids responded very well to her. Lin did an excellent job of keeping the kids fed, litter boxes clean (No small feat with 14 contributors!), and bringing in the mail. In addition, Lin also took the time to engage the kids in playtime and cuddling. She had no problem with me calling a couple of times for updates. (Separation anxiety on my part.) As a result, we were able to enjoy this rare vacation without being concerned for the welfare of our precious babies. We can't think of anyone else we'd trust so completely to care for our kids, and Lin will definitely be at the top of the list should we require pet sitting assistance in the future. Lin did a terrific job! We highly recommend her.

Lin G. was excellent with all of the dogs and cats. Even the dogs that are unsure of a new person warmed up to her rather quickly. Lin stepped up and helped us by providing a ride to and from the hospital. She even did some cleaning for us just to help out. I would trust Lin with my pets anytime and for any length of time. She gave my pets great amounts of attention and love. I recommend Lin for any pet sitting job.
