Bham Pet Sitting

Pet Sitting and Walking in Bellingham, WA and surrounding areas.

Reliable, Loving Care for Your

I’m an aspiring vet tech with a passion for animals of all shapes and sizes–from the smallest gerbil to the biggest dog! I meet your critter where they are, and I’m prepared to work to tailor their care so it’s perfect for them.

I provide dog walks, lots of playtime, overnight sitting, and drop-in pet care.

About Emily Rusnak

Lifelong Animal Lover and Aspiring Vet Tech

I’m a professional pet sitter and dog walker with a lifelong love of animals big and small. I have a cat, two hamsters, two parakeets and an aquarium all in a tiny apartment. I’m also an aspiring vet tech, and I volunteer at the Whatcom Humane Society with the small animals.

I’m currently attending Penn Foster, and I have a lot of curiosity about animals. I’m great with handling dogs, cats, and rodents. I read everything I can about all kinds of critters. I’m especially passionate about preventative care, and am always happy to help train your dog to have their teeth brushed, nails clipped, or any other simple healthcare needs!

I have experience with senior dogs, administer medications, am trained in dog and cat CPR & first aid, and have passed a background check from a third party. I’m also licensed and carry liability insurance.

Who I See

I see most animals, big and small. If I’m unfamiliar with your pet, I’m more than happy to do research beforehand and follow any specific instructions. I’m experienced with senior, reactive, and special needs animals.

"Emily took fantastic care of our cat while we were out of town for the week. She was flexible with our cats needs and was willing to stop by multiple times a day to meet them. We always got cute pictures, videos, and updates and we were ensured that our girl was doing well. We will definitely book with Emily next time we need a petsitter!"
