Melinda and Ms. Mila

Hello, my name is Melinda Harkink.

I have been in the professional pet sitting service business since 2000 and am the proud owner of Mel's Pet & Home Services. With almost 18 years of experience, I can provide the quality care your pets deserve. I have dedicated my career to providing excellent care for your pet(s) and home.

Since my early childhood I have been surrounded by pets. I have tremendous love and empathy for animals; I truly am 

delighted to work with them every day. Pets make my life whole.

I provide daily pet sitting services which include dog walking, cat visits, and other pet sitting care. I service the cities of Redwood City, Menlo Park, and Palo Alto.

With Mel's Pet & Home Services, your pets are taken care of individually and with love. While many pet sitters walk dogs in large groups, I take the extra time to walk your dog one on one. Dogs that enjoy the dog park get to go there and play in the open. My goal is to make sure your dog is safe, exercised and happy.

Cats are my specialty. I am the proud mom of two cats, Nomie and Bashu. I will treat your cats with love and respect, like they are my own.

I would be delighted to care for your pet.
