Bonded & Insured Independent Contractor


Valerie joined the Amore team after meeting a long-time Amore client. Valerie started pet sitting  20 years ago while earning her bachelor degree in Biology and continued sitting after graduating. She moved to the Santa Cruz  mountains in 2015 and created her own bonded and insured pet sitting business, Pup’s Me Time, LLC. She has a wealth of experience gained through her lifelong interaction with her family pets, volunteering with rescue organizations and working with pet sitting clients. Her specialty is shy dogs.  She has worked with dogs, cats, backyard poultry, parrots, small exotics, livestock and horses. She shares her life with a parrot and four dogs including two mastiffs rescued from the Korean dog meat trade that had to overcome their fear of humans. Her hobbies are running with her rescue Spanish Greyhound and training and riding her off-the-track thoroughbred horse. Valerie continues the Amore standard of caring for beloved pets as well as helping their owners feel at ease while they are away.

Amore Team

Jim  owned and ran Buddy and DJ's Dog Walking and Pet Sitting and served clients in the South San Jose area from 2007-2010.
During that time Jim cared for Janise’s beloved dogs before she founded Amore Pet Sitting. They have remained friends even after Jim relocated to Cambria to work as a physical therapist assistant After retiring in 2015 and wondering what was next, Jim chose to return to his love of animals and to South San Jose.  He began dog walking and pet sitting once again and contacted Janise about partnering with Amore.
Jim has experience with dogs of all sizes.  In addition to dogs,  he has cared for horses, cats, reptiles, chickens and goats.
  He also worked in Paso Robles CA for a pet crematory.  
A life long dog advocate who has loved and lived with  4 cherished golden retrievers, he most recently became the lucky guardian of Max, a one year old labradoodle rescue that was surrendered in Mariposa CA. 
Max and Jim can often be seen at any number of local parks playing fetch and socializing with other canine friends.
 Amore is so fortunate to have Jim on the team!
