Hi. I'm Jen, the owner of For Your Spot.

I have had a lifelong love of animals of all types. This love has always  allowed me to create a special bond with animals. For this reason, working with and caring for animals has been my lifelong path. I have shared my home with dogs, cats, fish, guinea pigs, hamsters, and I have always had a fascination with horses.

Working in the veterinary medical field for over 8  years I understand how much responsibility, patience and knowledge caring for pets requires. I have a B.S. in Biology, am a certified professional pet sitter through Pet Sitters International (PSI) and National Association for Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS), and am a certified pet first aid & CPR instructor through Pet Tech.

Currently my husband and I are owned by two rescue cats, Sonny & Walter. As a For Your Spot client, I encourage you to contact me any time. I am always available to answer any questions and address any concerns. I look forward to welcoming you into the For Your Spot family

Hello, I'm Justin.

In June of 2011, I joined the For Your Spot team while on summer break from nursing school. Since then, I have gained employment as a registered nurse; therefore, I pet sit on a part time basis.

Animals were a big part of my childhood. I spent a lot of time on my uncles' farms caring for horses, pigs, chickens and sheep. Also, dogs and cats were always part of my immediate and extended family. I now have two cats, Sonny and Walter, both are rescues and love to wrestle.

Recently, I enjoyed Pet Sitters International's Quest for Excellence conference where I attended seminars covering various aspects of the pet sitting profession such as puppy behavior and development. I am certified in both human and pet first aid & CPR and look forward to meeting you and your beloved pets.

Hi, my name is Casey.

I am originally from Wilson, NC with a background in x-ray technology. My husband is from Delaware so we moved here in August, 2009 with our two beautiful children. Once we got settled, I couldn't decide if I wanted to jump right back to the long hours at the hospital. Jen's husband, Justin, and my husband are cousins so Jen and I met through this great family we married into. We hit it off from the very beginning! I have always loved animals but I never considered a career in professional pet sitting until Jen explained her business to me. It was a true blessing to meet her, because this gave me the opportunity to be with my family more and actually enjoy what I do for a living. I joined the awesome For Your Spot team in March 2013 and I love every minute of it...even in the pouring rain!

 I am insured and bonded, and received my training in Pet First Aid & CPR through Pet Tech in 2013. I have also furthered my pet care education by attending seminars, including learning Tips for Hiking and Walking With Your Dog, and The Importance of Food in Dog Training : Preventing & Improving Behavior.

Hello, my name is Aaron

 After serving 20 years in the United States Army, I retired in 2010 as a Sergeant First Class. I led troops in combat on two occasions: operations Desert Shield and Iraqi Freedom.  I received airborne training, was a ranger for a little while, and served as a Drill Instructor for recruits in boot camp. At one time I cared for my units’ mascot, a black lab named Ninja.

Shortly after retirement, I began my college career. In January 2014 I obtained a Bachelors degree in film making from Wilmington University. I majored in film making because it is a hobby I enjoy.

 

I am originally from Hockessin, Delaware, but moved to Sussex County in December 2013. At that time, I began looking for a part time job in order to break up the monotony of retired life. When I discovered that For Your Spot was hiring, I immediately pursued the opportunity, because animals have always been a part of my life.  As a child cats and dogs were always included as members of the family. I now have two rescue dogs, Sammy and Betsy. I joined the For Your Spot team in March 2014 with enthusiasm. My experience has been wonderful. I love working with animals and find it peaceful and rewarding. In June 2014 I completed my training in Pet 1st aid & CPR through Pet Tech.

Hi, my name is Laura. I joined the For Your Spot team in 2014 after working as a nurse for 40 years. I have been a lifelong resident of Georgetown, Delaware. I have four wonderful children and seven beautiful grandchildren. Whether it be my children, my patients, or my pets, I have spent most of my adult life caring for others.

Over the years I have had many cats and dogs. I have shared my home with two collies, a weimeraner, a german shephard, a chocolate lab, a spaniel mix and many cats. I am excited about the possibility of working in a stress free environment where I can enjoy the love of animals on a daily basis. I am now trained in Pet 1st aid and CPR through Pet Tech. Continuing my education in professional pet care is something I look forward to.
