Cuddles From Queer Vegan Couple @ Oakland

by Lex   

  Oakland, California | Pet House Sitting



Hi! We are a queer vegan couple based in downtown Oakland, near Lake Merritt. We do animal/house-sitting together and Lex walks dogs. Below please find more information about us individually.

Lex:
I've just moved to Oakland from London, where I walked several dogs and took care of cats. Before that for six years I volunteered at the Lithuanian animal welfare organisation PIFAS, fostering cats and dogs in my home, coordinating and advising other volunteers about their foster animals, socialising, behaviour problems, etc. I also was involved in rescues and usually fostered these creatures who needed extra attention, special care, or socialising. I am still in contact with some of the people who adopted dogs I was fostering.

I'm a strong believer in positive encouragement and I prefer walking one dog at a time (unless they are from the same home) so that I can concentrate on building a relationship with each individual dog. I specialize in working with dogs who need extra attention and special care, such blind dogs, injured dogs, or dogs who have just had surgery.

I am more than happy to care for dogs of any size and age. I'm a freelance artist and work from home, so my schedule is very flexible.

Shani:
Teaching high school English and being in grad school at Mills College is great, but being around such seriousness all the time can get exhausting. That's why I love working part-time as a sitter for both tiny humxns and animals. It's GREAT to be able to be silly and not worry so much about what to say and how to say it.

---

As vegans, we adore all animals and strongly believe that they should have their own autonomy. As feminists, we also believe that just as womxn are not objects for men to control, animals are not objects for humxns to control. We wish that us humxns could coexist peacefully with animals without oppressing them.

Both of our pronouns are they/them/theirs.
from the age of 16 I was fostering cats and dogs in my house, also helped other volunteers with more difficult cases.
