Jan Parmar – Pet Sitter
JanHello my name is Jan!
I am a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who works with Dementia patients in their homes. My love for animals started when I was just a kid when I volunteered at Pace University Environmental Center in New York. Waking up at 4:30am every Weekend to walk 7 miles, so I could spend my days with the horses, goats, sheep, and more. Years later, I became the Stable Manager at Pace, which was a dream come true. I have been fortunate to have dogs and cats in my homes ever since. The most was 7 dogs, 6 cats, and 4 horses at once!! I have always been interested in Veterinary work, and would shadow Vet friends as much as I could. I am pleased to have joined Petathome to help care for client’s animals with the love and compassion they deserve!


Gina Abbananto – Pet Sitter
GinaBorn and raised in West Palm Beach and began working as a Pet Sitter for Deedra at Pet At Home in September of 2014.  I completed Pet First Aid and CPR training with Pet Tech and received my certificate of training. It’s a great opportunity to care for many pets and I have learned new ways to make them comfortable when their pet parents are not able to be there.

Over the years I have had numerous cats and dogs, from Pomeranians to Great Danes.  Most of them were rescues and I just cannot imagine having a home without one.  In addition to working with Deedra at Pet at Home, I volunteer with Forgotten Soldiers Outreach and Shepherd Help and Rescue Effort (SHARE).

When I needed a sitter for my older dog, Bear, Deedra was the obvious choice. She is so thorough and caring. I felt very comfortable having her take care of my faithful companion and checking on my home. Unfortunately, Bear became very ill and crossed the rainbow bridge. The newest addition to the family is Kali, a lab mix from Big Dog Ranch Rescue. Of course I have Deedra taking care of her when I am away!
