I needed a dog sitter for my two dogs and thankfully I found Malina! She is fantastic! I have two dogs: a Shepard mix and a hound mix. She took great care of them while we were gone for 5 days. They were happy and tired when we got back. Malina took pics of them and sent them to me. The pics were really good pics too! Like professional looking pictures. I loved the fact that she only takes dogs out on leash. That made me feel really comfortable because I am very protective of my pups. My mind was at ease. She would also text me to make sure it was ok to take them to the beach or other places. She has a love for animals and I know my cuddle bugs were happy with her and cuddled with her. I would have Malina watch my dogs again.

Malina is quite simply the best friend and care giver that your pets will have. She was incredibly attentive to our 10 year old lab and 3 year old lab/Shepherd mix. Malina took great care of them in our home while we were on a 12 day vacation and I never worried for a single second- we had photos, texts and even videos throughout our time away. She is very intuitive to our needs and genuinely loves being with our dogs and I am so lucky to have found her.
We hired Malina to watch our baby girl, Keva (1 yr old Bengal cat) for 5 days while we were out of town. Would definitely recommend!
When I first reached out, she responded quickly and enthusiastically, and scheduled a meet-and-greet to ensure that we all had a chance to meet and feel comfortable before leaving town. When she came by, Keva instantly took a liking to her. She asked lots of questions to make sure she understood our fur-parenting style, what dates we needed her service, and any special requirements that come with our girl. After a visit that instilled much confidence, we lent her a set of keys so she could access our home.
Her rate was very fair - $25 per 30-minute visit, which included feeding, emptying the litter box, about 20 minutes of play-time, AND she collected our mail for us! We decided to purchase a food timer so that she could come by once a day and feed her in the morning, and set the timer for 12 hours so her dinner would be automatically administered.
We actually we're gone for 10 days and had a friend coming by on weekends to feed/play with our kitty. Malina was great in "trading shifts" with our friend and really made the whole process super easy!
Each day she came over, Malina sent lots of adorable pictures of our sweet girl, and made sure to communicate any info regarding her health/behavior that could be important.
In summary, Malina did a great job, and we will definitely be hiring her again for our next vacation!

We wholeheartedly recommend Malina’s cat sitting services to anyone who is looking for someone to take care of their kitties. We have three indoor cats, two of whom were initially feral and Malina managed to get all of them to remain relaxed and happy while we left them for the first time ever for a few days. While we were away, Malina also easily administered insulin twice a day to our thirteen year old cat. We are so grateful that we found a trustworthy loving person to take care of our furry little ones during our absence. We plan on using her services for all of our future pet sitting needs as well.
