Brooke (Pet Sitter/Walker)

Brooke joined LCS in August 2019

Hello, my name is Brooke Stepule. I became a pet sitter because I have always loved caring for the pet’s I grew up with (chickens, cats, dogs, and a rabbit) and I wanted to be able to care for other people’s pet’s when they couldn’t be there. Working for Linda’s Critter Sitters (LCS) allows me to be able to care for other people’s pet’s while gaining knowledge of how to properly care for them from the experienced staff at LCS. I believe it is important to have experienced people that you can call on when you have questions about how to handle certain situations.

When not caring for pet’s I attend Manchester Community College and I work part time at a local restaurant.

Robin (Pet Sitter/Walker)

Robin joined LCS in November 2019

My love of animals and nature began as a child, having been raised with a variety of cats, dogs, birds, fish, hamsters, gerbils and horses and discovering a “natural connection” to them. The unconditional love as they taught me lessons of responsibility, compassion and empathy while caring for their well-being continues today in both my professional and personal life.

Joining the team at LCS. allows me the opportunity to pursue this passion on a professional level, as they provide continued education, training, and many years of experience.

 Currently my fur family consists of, “Luna” a six-year-old domestic short hair, our newest member, “George” a five-week-old domestic long hair rescue, as well as, “Jessie” a 10-year-old Golden Doodle who serves as a certified service dog for my grandson.  

My background is in the medical field, EMS and specialized healthcare (palliative/hospice care).  I have resided in Ellington for the past 20 years with my husband.
