Thank you for visiting my website!

My name is Melissa Trasatti, I am the Owner of Melissa's Pet Sitting.  I began my business in 2011 when I decided to "take a chance" and follow a passion.  Since an early age, I was always considered to be a very compassionate, loving and responsible person when it came to animals.  Raised in a home where we had no fewer than 3 dogs and 6 cats at any given time along with rabbits, snakes, fish and a variety of other pets, I was taught responsibility and love towards all animals.  It came naturally ,really, and the bond that I formed with many of my pets, who were considered family members, was very strong.  As an adult, my love and passion towards animals continued and grew.  I decided to start my own small business. Circumstances lead me in the right direction and deciding to follow a passion put me on this path.  I was able to make my own schedule, allowing me to have more time with my soul mate, my dog BJ Bear.  She had many health conditions and my goal was to provide the best care to her and make her my #1 priority as well as enjoy as much time as possible with her, especially in her later years.  Luckily I was able to do just that and she lived a wonderful life until April 2013.  From that point forward, my drive to grow my business and also be able to follow another passion, animal rescue/welfare, seemed to kick into full gear.  The time I devote and efforts I put forth with animal rescue/welfare is in memory of BJ Bear and knowing that homeless or endangered pets need the community to be their voice. 

While I did not know that my path would lead me in this direction, I can say that I am meant to be doing what I do and truly love every day I have to do the work that I do.  I have developed wonderful and valuable relationships with clients and their pets.  I consider my clients pets to be like my own pets and treat them in the same, deserving and loving, way that I treat my own fur kids.  I have learned so much from the start of this venture, been so fortunate to have gotten to know the people and pets that I have and am very motivated to continuing this path of being a professional Pet Sitter and advocate and volunteer in the world of animal rescue/welfare groups.

I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about my service. 

I do offer free, in client home, consultations and am happy to speak with you via phone, email or text to assist you in ensuring you choose the best pet sitter for your fur kids!
