About Artemis Animals
My name is Julie, I am the owner of Artemis Animals.
I have loved and lived with animals my entire life, including horses, rabbits, chickens, cats, and dogs. I worked as a United States Postal Service letter carrier in Randolph, Dover and Mine Hill, New Jersey for 26 years. During that time I had many opportunities to aid and rescue injured, lost and abandoned animals. Some of the animals I rescued came to live with me, including a deaf cat and a three legged cat. Currently, I live with four cats and one dog. All of these animals are rescue animals.
I have always felt a deep connection with animals, and owning a pet sitting/dog walking business and working with pets has allowed me to pursue a dream I have had for years of spending my days being around animals. I will come to your home and take first-rate care of your pets that will include walking them, playing with them, providing them with company, and of course, properly feeding them per your instructions. In addition, I will also care for your home and provide home security and theft deterrent by taking in your mail, watering your indoor plants as needed, and turning on and off lights to make it appear as if someone is home.
I have completed the training courses offered by both Pet Sitters International (PSI) and the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) and passed their tests to become an Accredited, Professional Pet Sitter. In addition I trained with and am certified by the Red Cross in Dog and Cat First Aid, including CPR and I am certified with Pet Tech in Dog and Cat First Aid, including CPR. I have also received training in dog obedience with Top Dog Obedience School in Flanders, N. J., specifically with Shelley Clawson of K-Nine Coaching. With me at his side, my dog, D’Argo, successfully passed his AKC Good Citizenship Test in September 2011.
I am a member of Pet Sitters International (PSI). I am a life-long member of the Humane Society and have lobbied Congress on behalf of the Humane Society to encourage them to pass animal welfare laws intended to protect both domestic and wild animals.
As a pet owner, I know how much your animals mean to you, and I am looking forward to caring for them with the same love and attention as I do my own. I am dedicated to providing my clients with the best service available and the peace of mind that their pets will be taken care of in the best way possible.
