Sarah Young, Animal Care Specialist

Small and Large Animal Assistant

My name is Sarah Young and I have been with Coastal Pet Sitting since January 2016.  My experience with animals began with being an owner.  I grew up on a farm in Brentwood with an American Staffordshire Terrier named Kyha, who lived a full and happy life of 19 years. A few years later I adopted a 3 year old Staffordshire Terrier named Cleo, who continues to bless us with her love and happiness.

In 2009, I graduated from Exeter High School concentrating my studies in Animal and Plant Sciences.

My first job was working on a local farm in East Kingston. My typical daily tasks included: feeding, watering & cleaning stalls/pens, sheering sheep, milking goats & haying the fields. We also fostered strayed dogs from local shelters to help train and rehabilitate them for adoption.  From there I went on to work  in a pet supply store while I continued to volunteer my time fostering dogs who were in need of special care or training.

As an employee with Coastal Pet Sitting I enjoy caring for and walking dogs.  I also love to help educate clients in the areas of puppy training, socializing and obedience.  Cats are near and dear to my heart and I always get down onto the floor at their level so I can quickly gain their trust and affection.  I also have experience with large animals and would welcome the opportunity to care for your horses, goats, and sheep.  I also enjoy caring for your pets in your home overnight.  I will keep you updated with texts and pictures so you will feel comfortable while you are away from your beloved pet.

 In my spare time I enjoy hiking through the wilderness & appreciating nature, searching for seaglass along the beaches, or off-roading in my Jeep!
