I would like to formally start off by introducing myself as I understand it is an important requirement to get to know the person who would handle the responsibility or taking care of one's pet. My name is Shirley Marquis and I am 23 years old. I currently reside in Hillgersberg, Rotterdam and I am a bachelor's student at Erasmus University where I study Management of Social & International Challenges (BSc). I have owned multiple pets and several dogs ever since I was 6 years old. During those years, I have acquired the necessary skills in taking care of my dogs, cats, birds and my turtles, and so I would like to utilize my expertise in this field as I am very confident that I will be a valuable pet sitter in the Pawshake family. I am from India, but I was brought up in Dubai where I currently have 3 dogs living-in with my family.
Being able to grow up with pets has truly helped me gain capability and management in training as well as taking care of animals and has helped me learn to attain the knowledge I need to provide a safe, loving and healthy environment for them. Whether it's dog walking, giving them showers, feeding them at the right time, teaching them new tricks or just simply just be there with them, play with them and provide them with the company they are always craving for. Apart from owning quite a decent amount of pets, I have also done the following jobs back home;
- Volunteered at SCADS (Sharjah cats and dogs shelter) where I spent the summer taking care of the animals as well as assisting in the necessary fields that were required.
- Volunteered at 'adoption day' events for pets that were a hero in Dubai, where I assisted in ensuring the smooth functioning of the event, set-up creative activities and spread awareness.
-I have also been a pet sitter for my neighbor's and friend's dogs whenever they ever went on a holiday or away on a business trip.
I currently reside with my boyfriend, Rohan Verma, who is 23 years old and will also help me out with the necessary requirements. He is too an animal lover and has also volunteered to pet his neighbor's as well as his friend's dogs, cats and birds for over 6 years. He is as enthusiastic and motivated as me in taking care of one's pets. Together we reside with our housemate and our landlord who is absolutely comfortable with pets as well. We live in a decent apartment in a very well-maintained neighborhood. It's by the lake and has plenty of space for animals to run, walk, play and even 'attend to their businesses'.
We look forward to taking care of our Paw-some furry friends!
Second time I left my dogs with her and second time she was great!
Shirley and Rohan were great with Nina and Tom. They took really good care of them. I'm really glad we've found them.
