Fletch Directors Chair

Fletch was Heidi’s BFF and sidekick for 11 years. He was the inspiration behind Heidi’s Hounds after Heidi spent decades in a corporate career traveling the globe unable to find peace of mind pet care for Fletch (and other pets before him). RIP little buddy: September 2009 – June 2021

George HH Bio pic

George lives in North Weymouth with his family, after relocating from the Midwest twelve years ago. He enjoys the natural beauty of the area with its parks and walking trails. Having served as a foster parent for friends pets, petsitting was a natural draw. Over the years he has enjoyed the company of five rescue dogs including a Beagle/Basset Hound, Yellow Lab, Cocker Spaniel, Dachshund, a beautiful mixed breed as well as five cats, two of which were former strays. Each one has had a unique personality and different needs. George has also had some unusual animals such as a ferret, pet rats, a rabbit, and African Chiclid aquarium fish. George enjoys meeting new animals and finds they often warm up to him quickly. He looks forward to getting to know your pet and spending quality time with them.
