Michelle Pet Sitter FishHawk, Florida

Michelle Quessenberry
Owner, No Place Like Home Pet Sitting

My name is Michelle Quessenberry. I was born in Ohio, and raised in Seminole, Florida. I have been an animal lover my entire life. My passion for animals developed at a very young age while watching my parents breed, raise, train, and show Dobermans. I started interning at animal hospitals right out of high school, and even worked as a kennel tech at several animal hospitals.

I was a stay at home mom for 10 years and have always been either a dog or a cat owner. I was introduced to the world of professional pet sitting years ago when I began hiring people to take care of my own pets when I traveled. Prior to this, I had known kennels to be the only option. I absolutely LOVED the idea of having them stay in the comfort of their own home while we traveled.

Then, in May 2013, I went after a dream of mine… I became a small business owner and established No Place Like Home Pet Sitting, LLC – and provide superb service for pet owners living in the FishHawk Ranch and surrounding communities of Lithia, FL.

I currently have 2 dogs; an 11 year old Golden Retriever, named Bella, who has been a part of our family since she was 8 weeks old, and a 6 year old Maltipoo, named Biscuit, who we adopted from a local family who could no longer care for him. Due to my son’s extreme allergy, we cannot have cats in our home, however, pet sitting fills that void.

I lived in the wonderful community of FishHawk Ranch in Lithia, FL for 11 years and recently moved just outside of the community. I have two beautiful children, a loving, supportive husband, and have a well-established reputation in the community.

I have 10 years of volunteer experience with various Hillsborough County PTA/PTSA positions within the area schools, including FishHawk Creek Elementary, Bevis Elementary, and Randall Middle. I also served as the Ambassador for the Neighborhood Watch Program within my community village. Retiring recently from all the school volunteering positions has allowed for me to be more actively involved in dog rescue – I LOVE to foster, rehabilitate, and rehome dogs as much as possible. Nothing is more rewarding that giving an abandoned or abused dog a second chance.

Sherry Lange – Pet Sitter 

My name is Sherry Lange.  I am an animal lover.  Really, I am a natural born nurturer and care-giver. I was raised in the suburbs outside of Chicago, Illinois where my family got their first dog – a German Shepherd that was named Pirate because my parents were born and raised in Pittsburgh. I watched my mom take care of her and train her to respond to traditional commands like: sit, stay, come, lie down, and heel. She also taught Pirate to go “out” only in one small corner of her yard, not to leave the property and  to look menacing if a stranger came around. I learned a lot from my mom about caring for pets as well as children, and that is that being disciplined provides for freedom of expression and a safe structure for having fun.

I have raised 4 boys, 2 sons and 2 step-sons in partnership with my husband, Paul Lange and my ex-husband whom I have a great relationship with, providing the most nurturing and safe environment for all 4 of my boys. I have also raised two cute doggies of my own; Ranger -a collie that I got while I was in college, and Rocky -a golden retriever that we got when the boys were in elementary school. My sons have also had a wide variety of smaller pets ranging from birds to snakes. I enjoy them all.

I have lived in FishHawk for 8 years and am an empty-nester now. Our last doggie recently joined his brothers and sisters in doggie heaven and all but one of my boys lives away from home. The one still at home is completing his second year at HCC and will most likely be moving out soon. I am happy to start to slow down and enjoy helping out with your beloved pets while being able to continue to be a care-giver. 


Holly Humphries – Pet Sitter

I’m a huge animal lover, and for some reason they love me too. Maybe it’s my sweet demeanor or my deep understanding of them. I have two black lab mixes that my husband and I have rescued. Dooma is 8 years old, very sassy, and human smart. Bella is my big sweet baby who is now 4 and is momma’s girl. This is not my first rodeo. Growing up we have had chickens, rabbits, horses, cows, fish, rats, cats, lizards, and of course dogs. I have a fondness for labs being that my grandparents had our chocolate lab named Shadow, and he was with us until he was 18.

While attending Hilton Head High I volunteered at the Hilton Head Humane Association which was very rewarding. I cared for mostly dogs and cats, some of which were feral. They were beautiful animals and I wanted to take all of them home!

We have lived here in Fishhawk for two years now, and I never want to leave. The community involvement and knowing our neighbors is very special to me. Being a proclaimed Southern Belle, I love to entertain, cook, and chat it up with everybody. I can go anywhere and make a new friend. I’m an avid gardener. You name it and I probably have it growing. I’m also a mother of two boys who attend Bevis and now Newsome in the fall. They are both super sweet and very smart young men.


Miranda Belcher – Pet Sitter

My name is Miranda Belcher. I was raised in Valrico and graduated from Bloomingdale High School. I also attended Randall Middle School the year it opened. I have had the honor of traveling around the world and living in Germany, then back stateside in Georgia and Colorado. I have had a love for animals my entire life and have cared for and raised small animals, companion animals, and exotics. I have spent the past three years as a Veterinary Surgery Technician, and before that I spent five

years as a volunteer veterinary assistant.

I am now going back to school and raising my two beautiful little girls in the community I grew up in. I love all things Disney and learning something new every day. I have two beautiful dogs a Great Pyrenees Rottweiler mix named Edgrrr Allan Poe and a Boxer named Kat. I also have three very personable adult cats Morgen, Reggie and Kitty Purry, and an adorable hamster named Chewy. I foster neonatal kittens year-round and volunteer my time to non-profits that help the animal community in Florida.


Jessica Claspo -Pet Sitter

My name is Jessica and I was born in Brooklyn, New York. I moved to Flordia when I was about 8 and definitely grew to love it here! Ever since I could remember I wanted to work with animals. So I started working in a kennel. I absolutely loved working there but then I found No Place Like Home Pet Sitting. I knew this would be the perfect job for me. I used to watch my neighbors pets when they were away and I loved being able to care for them. It was always such a rewarding feeling for me.

I have 2 dogs of my own. Coco a cocker spaniel and Frankie a bichon. I also have 2 gerbils, a bearded dragon, and fish! I love all of my animals all the same and I want to share that love with your pets!
