Hi, dear pet owners!
I am Marce, a veterinarian doctor from Costa Rica and currently a master's student in regenerative medicine at Utrecht University. Now, I am studying from home, so I have flexible time to look for your lovely pet.
I have a great experience with animals, living with pets since I was a kid, not only dogs and cats, but also interacting with rodents, rabbits, and farm animals.
During my youth, I volunteered in a dog shelter (with more than 150 dogs) during 5 years. After that, I started my career and offered grooming services while studying. Before moving to NL with my husband, I worked in a veterinary hospital (24/7) and a veterinary lab, so I have plenty of experience giving medications and medical care if your pet needs it so you can relax when traveling or when you are not at home.
At this moment, we are not ready to have our own pets, and I miss so much having them around me. For this reason, I decided to become part of this project to help you and at the same time, I can enjoy the company of a fluffy friend. Our home has several rooms, a back garden, and it is super close to a beautiful forest. Guest pets can stay wherever they feel comfortable, and we can walk or run around the neighborhood or in the woods! Feel free to contact me, be sure I will do my best to fulfill the wishes of you and your best friend!
The Services I offer:
Home Boarding (your pets come to my home overnight), Day Care (your pets come to my home during the daytime), Home visits (Take care of your pets at your house one or two times per day, at least 20 minutes or longer), House sitting (I go to your house to stay overnight and take care of your pets). Pick up/drop off service in nearby areas ~1km (I don't have a car).
We want to highly recommend Marcela as a pet sitter. She took care of our two Jack Russel dogs, Tigger and Rocky for us while on a trip abroad. This was the first time we have left Tigger and Rocky alone with a pet sitter since arriving in NL for such a long time - 10 days - and was not sure if they would adapt.
From the moment they've met Marcela, they were wagging their tails, pointing their ears up and made themselves at home in her presence...During our travels we were frequently updated with pictures and their daily adventures and could see that they both were happy and at ease with her and in her home...They behaved exactly the way they would with us at home, reassuring us that they were not in any distress and enjoying their time in their home away from home...
Marcela really cared for their well-being, updating us on their behaviour, eating, sleeping and digestion habits and status. We were so at ease whilst travelling and very happy that we have decided to choose Marcela to care for our babies. They were taken for their daily walks in the park and have even taken up running again.
Marcela also loved to cuddle with Tigger and he would easily go to lie on her lap, taking comfort in his temporary mom's arms.
We will definitely make use of Marcela's pet sitting services whenever we need to travel again and so happy that we have found someone who would love and treat our dogs as much and as well as we do...
Bedankt Marcella voor de goede zorgen voor onze beagle pup.
We zijn echt heel Happy geweest Met je goede communicatie, maar al vooral de liefde die er afstraalt voor onze hond als wij haar bij je brengen
Bedankt en tot de volgende keer
