My name is Alec, and I do a lot of things, mostly here in South OC :) Many people know me as a local teacher and performer. I also enjoy house sitting and pet sitting, and I understand the need to feel safe and secure about your home and/or your furry family members, while away. I have lived with and cared for dogs, cats, reptiles, birds, and bats (my favorite comic character might have influenced that last bit). My schedule is very flexible, so I'm able to be away from home as needed, and check in on pets if necessary, during the day.
I love animals, love people, and love work that involves filling someone's need. Day to day life includes a variety of things, all involving people...I'm a Swing band leader (the city of Mission Viejo hosts my Speakeasy show twice/year), Ballroom and Tap dance teacher, actor, massage therapist, concert producer, and I teach children chess through a local after-school program. I just recently had a live scan/background check, and can provide many character references :)
For overnights, I ask $30/night. Daytime 1/2 hour pet visits/walks are $15. For locations over a half hour away from where I live in Mission Viejo, those rates become $40 for overnights, and $20 for visits/walks.
I'll be happy to come meet you (and your fur babies) if you'd like an in-person interview, and I can provide references as requested (I just don't put their names and numbers on Craigslist).
Advance notice is ideal, but do feel free to reach out last-minute, if necessary!
Thanks for reading, and let me know when I can be of service!
All the best, ~Alec 949-370-0523 (mobile)
