Shelley is awesome! She was really responsive and professional from the get go. She made us feel really comfortable and we completely trusted her to be in our home and take care of our cat while we were on vacation. We loved the daily pictures she sent, how easy it was to coordinate with her, and how affordable her services are - so much so that we used her for dog sitting too a few weeks later. She’s now our go-to pet sitter. Thanks for everything Shelley!Nov 20, 2018VerifiedShelley - Here to Help!'s reply
Thank you so very much! Socks is a gentle sweet kitty 😻 and your Eli is also a full sweetheart we l❤️ved having him! Hope to see both sooooon!
Shelley is a great pet sitter! After posting my inquiry on thumbtack, we met for the initial consult with 2 days. Throughout the entire process Shelley was very responsive and during the sitting hours she always sent photos of my kitties. One of my cats requires medication, which was not a problem for Shelley. Knowing my pets were in the hands of someone who cares about them just as much as myself was a huge relief. I will be asking her to sit my cats whenever I travel now. The quote was a great value! I highly suggest working with Shelley.Mar 6, 2018Verified
Shelley was so great with my dog Ferris! She sent pics of him all weekend which helped me feel at ease since it's the first time I've left him with a sitter in SF. He got lots of walks and play time :) would recommend to anyone looking for a great pet sitter!May 25, 2019VerifiedShelley - Here to Help!'s reply
Thank you so much for letting Ferris spend time with us. He is a hoot and we would welcome him anytime! ♥️🤩
Shelley was professional and easy to work with. Highly recommended as a pet sitter. She was responsive, considerate, and took great care of my fish while I was out of town.Jul 17, 2018VerifiedShelley - Here to Help!'s reply
Thank you Eric. My first fish job! Your instructions were clear and helped make it easier to make sure Tony was properly fed!
Shelley is amazing. She is very flexible and responds quickly to your messages. My girls took right to her and I felt comfortable leaving them in her capable care. I came home from vacation to calm and loving cats and I know I can owe that to Shelley. Hire her before she fills up her schedule. You and your pets will be happy you did. 🥰Dec 5, 2018VerifiedShelley - Here to Help!'s reply
Laura, thank you so much for your thoughtful words. You really encompassed the happiness I truly feel knowing that your furry babies were happy upon your return. My Burlingame Beauties are sweet souls and were always welcoming. So I thank you, their awesome human very much! 😻❤️😻
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I feel that I am pretty reasonable. I know that we have a tendency to think more expensive is better. However, I am very open to working things out and can work with clients to find a fair price also.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I usually try to respond as quickly as I can to a client to let them know my availability and interest. Then I really like to establish communication either text or phone call. Again, I understand people have busy and hectic lives and so I really try hard to accommodate a client's schedule when meeting and consulting for the first time.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a science teacher for 20+ years and am currently also a vice-principal. However, I have many classroom pets and know the importance of taking care of many different types of animals. I grew up in SF and used to feed all the stray cats and care for them as they meandered through our backyard. I had the fortune of having a wonderful yellow lab for 16 amazing years. Can't even write about him after all these years still have a heavy heart. In other words, although I am professionally working with children and being an administrator, I love animals and I know that I give pets genuine and good, loving care. I provide quality and true attention - I believe that with all my heart. WEDDING OFFICIANT I actually started doing this when I officiated for a family member’s wedding. It was quite honestly, an amazing experience. To be a part of people’s journeys is something very special. Because of this, I embarked on doing this for others and I can honestly say, that each time it has been different, memorable and I am grateful over and over again. Helping to create a script that is personal and customized is almost my favorite part. I enjoy finding readings, poems, lyrics that may help to build an ambiance and gives each ceremony its own uniqueness. It is very important to me that each couple feels that their ceremony is just theirs. And that on each said date and each moment in time, the couple knows it is all about them/each other. I am always honored to be called on and I part inspired by the feelings of love, joy, excitement and commitment that can’t be denied and are so tangible. I leave smiling every single time.
