I am a 33 year old responsible single male, originally from Europe now living in Jacksonville, Florida. I work for JP Morgan Chase Bank and also for the Department of Elder Affairs as an Ombudsman, and I sit on several local non-profit boards. Even with all of this I get plenty of time off work during the year and I like to spend it away from home.
I do have house/pet/farm sitting experience (not via this website) and I can provide references upon request, along with a copy of my ID for your security. Although I have lived in the city most of my life, I love rural lifestyle just as much as urban. I have experience in taking care of household pets (cats, dogs, fish, birds and critters, but I don't mind learning about any exotic pets you might have. I also have experience with barn animals and can take care of your chickens, waterfowl, goats (including milking) and sheep. I do not have experience with cows and horses, but I am willing to follow your instructions if a need arises.
I do not mind taking your pets for any veterinary care if they are scheduled for such during your absence. In addition, I can administer medications, including injections, which I have learned while volunteering for an animal rescue organization during my college years. If your pet requires homemade food, I do not mind cooking for them.
I might not know how to trim your roses or prune your trees and bushes, but I can water your plants, cut the grass and perform other basic yard work. Please note that most of my adult life, I have spent in the US in states with no snow; therefore I would not be comfortable driving your pets around during snow. As a responsible person, I do not wish to put your pet in such a situation, for safety reasons.
I am a non-smoker.
For privacy reasons, I am not posting contact details/names of my references (some are influential individuals, but I treat everyone with the same respect), unless I am given explicit permission to do so. I can provide those in a private message. For the same reason, I am not asking them to write me reference letters, but they will accept your phone call or email. I hope you understand this. I will respect your privacy just as theirs.
