Maribeth W

Dog Walker

Hi, My name is Maribeth Wiltgen and I lived in the Fox Valley area for over 20 years. I am a Mom to human boys and 3 fur babies. My fur babies are Chance a Morkie 5 yrs old Zoe a yorkiepoo 2 years old and my new baby is Dublin a Wheaten soft coat 6 months old. I choose to be a stay at home Mom for all my babies for the last 20 years. My human babies are all grown and I still love being with my fur babies. I would love the opportunity to walk, watch and take care of your fur babies and other animals you may have. I could not ask for a better job to be active and spread my love for animals.

Pet Sitter

Hi, my name is Mary.  I will be boarding your furry friends in my home.  You can expect your pets to receive lots of attention, loving care, and a safe home environment while they board with me.  I have lots of personal experience around animals.  I was raised my whole life with dogs at home, I board a family member’s dog throughout the year, and I’ve owned a cockatiel for the past 12 years.  Rest assured, your pet will be happy and feel safe until your return!

Pet Sitter

Hi! I’m MaryGrace, but I also go by MG. Although pet sitting is new to me, caring for them isn’t. I have an eight-year-old St. Bernard named Chuck. 90% of his day, he sleeps and 10% of his day, he eats. We like to to change up his normal, eat-sleep routine by visiting hospice patients at healthcare facilities to bring joy to their days. In addition to being with Chuck, I enjoy being with my friends and family. I also love traveling to national parks, dabbling on my ukulele, and watching movies.

Pet Sitter

Hi! My name is Marie Furrh (pronounced Fur – perfect name for this job, right?!) I’ve had pets all my life. Through the years I’ve helped raise 5 cats, 2 dogs, many fish, a Russian Tortoise, oh, and 3 humans. Not all at the same time, but close! Right now, we have a 13yo orange tabby, named Duke and a 12yo pit mix, Eddie. I’ve been a volunteer dog walker at the DuPage County animal shelter for the last 10 years and help to train the new volunteers. I feel like all this experience has prepared me to help with your pets. I’d love to walk your dogs, take care of your cats and other pets – all to give you peace of mind while you work or travel. They’ll be in good hands with me!

Molly M

Pet Sitter

I just graduated college with my Criminal Justice degree with a minor in Spanish. I’ve always had a great hope for helping others and our furry family members are very much included in that for me. Before joining Wild Things I’ve volunteered and worked with animals shelters in the area and in Missouri just outside my college. Also, was a dog sitter to dogs of all types within my family such as pit bulls, golden retrievers, great pyrenees, even the littlest chi-weenie’s! I believe that no matter if a pet is a dog, cat, or lizard they all have special places in our hearts and deserve all the love. I say this because throughout my life i have had cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, lizard, and fish in my home that was a little mini zoo i loved taking care of. Outside of animals, I am hugely into sports especially the Chicago Cubs (Sorry White Sox fans) and the Blackhawks.
