My name is Pam Fasteen and I am so excited to have an opportunity to care for and love on your animals! I never pass up an opportunity to pet a dog at the park or go talk to and pet the kitties at Feeders Supply. I love them all and could spend all day just giving them all attention. I love them all!
My husband, Jim, and I have three dogs (all large-breed rescue mutts,) and three sweet cats, each with a unique personality. We have three children, our daughter just started college, our son is a high school freshman, and our younger son is in 7th grade. My grandmother used to groom dogs and she also loved cats, so I developed a fervent love for animals through her and I have passed this on to my children. I have always had a heart for animals’ needs and desires, knowing that we humans are their voice. I will always work for and advocate for them in any way I can. I carry a leash in my car just in case I see a stray dog and I have returned dozens of dogs to their homes throughout the years. I have found a few dogs and cats that were not chipped and I have found great homes for all of them!
After graduating from Indiana University, I worked at Spalding University as a director of development. Once I had children, I decided to stay at home with them and am heavily involved in volunteer activities with their schools and sports teams. I have plenty of time to spend giving your animals the attention they want and deserve while you are gone. They are all precious and will provide excellent care to your standards. I had a cat who had diabetes from age 9 on (he lived to 16,) so I have given insulin shots, as well as many different types of medications over the years. I am meticulous and double-check everything to make sure that they are safe and comfortable, as well as ensuring your home is secure.
I would love the opportunity to help you and become a part of your animals’ extended family.
