Hello,

I would like to introduce myself and Mel’s Pet Sitting Service. My name is Melanye Narcarti, and I live in Glennville. Recently, I have begun what I should have begun a long time ago, and that is my own pet sitting service. Pets, and animals in general, are a big part of my life. Besides big, hairy spiders, cockroaches and other exoskeleton-type critters, I love all animals. I have even gone to meet baby goats! But, dogs are my first love. If you know me at all, then you know how much I love dogs.

In the past, I have owned as many as 7 dogs, 5 cats and 2 parakeets. Currently, I have 4 dogs: Jake, LadyBug, Maggie and Twinkie; 4 cats that I claim: Orange-kitty, Missy, Mama-Cat and Daisy, (the rest are Allison’s); and my 2 parakeets: Kiwi and Blueberry.

I began this pet sitting service because I know how difficult it is to leave your best friend behind when you have to go out of town, or when you just need to get away, and there’s no one out there who accepts pets, i.e. cruise ships, most hotels, or even some family members, etc. So what do you do with your pets? For a lot of people, there are only a couple of options: Board them in a cold, sterile kennel with limited attention, or hire a pet sitting service, usually at their home, or sometimes yours. We have been through this, and have done both. Having had this experience, I will ALWAYS opt for someone to care for my pets at my home. Usually, Allison, or I, know the person very well and we know that person is trustworthy, responsible, dependable, and will take good care of our pets.

But, sometimes, you just don’t know anyone who fits these qualifications, or maybe you’re new to the area. That’s where I come in:

I would LOVE the opportunity to meet you and your family pets. When I meet a potential client, not only am I meeting the client, usually I am meeting members of their immediate family(sometimes a spouse, or children), and most importantly their family pets. When I meet a pet for the first time, I always ask what their name is and if they’re friendly. Then, I let the pet check me out first, and then finally I can greet the pet. (I’ve watched The Dog Whisperer, too!)

I have been a member of the ASPCA, The Humane Society of the United States, I enjoy watching Animal Planet, including Puppy Bowl, and I have read many fiction, and non-fiction, dog books! Ok, I’ve even read some cat books, too.  I am an advocate for adopting and rescuing pets. I believe everyone needs a second chance. In fact, all my animals were either adopted, or rescued, except one. I have lots respect for responsible owners of pets, because I know how much goes into caring for them. My pets are considered to be my “family.” You can be confident in knowing that your pets will be treated with the utmost kindness, care and love that anyone could possibly offer.

My sitting fees are:

NOTE: All pets that I keep at my home will need to be free of fleas and/or ticks. They will also need to be up-to-date on their vaccinations. I will ask for your vet’s name. Since I own animals, I do not want to compromise their health, as I’m sure you can understand.
