Babysitting Services. Years of Experience and References Available!

 My name is Zoey and I am a 22 year old senior at Northeastern. I moved to Jamaica Plain in July and would love to find some families who need sitters! I have ten years experience with children of all ages and have previously lifeguarded and taught swim lessons for children ages 3 to 15. In the past I worked at MGH in the newborn unit giving hearing tests to the new babies. 

I have a very flexible schedule in August. Once classes begin in September, I will be available nights and…

lovely well-groomed dog found

To ALL,

A medium sized dog was found on my back deck this morning around 8 am.

I am located on Saint Rose Street near Arborway street.

I will surrender this sweet dog to the MSPCA when they open at 2 PM

Please reply with any information at all about this dog.

Sincerely,

Joanne

Black pitbull dog roaming JP this evening (May 6)

Hi all,

Just saw a large black pitbull roaming up Chestnut (from Mozart in the direction of Stony Brook) about half an hour ago (6:15ish). I called Animal Control who said they'd "see if they could send someone out," and MSPCA and ARL were closed/not answering phones when I called.

Keep an eye out so we can help get that guy/gal home and also make sure our neighbors are safe!

He didn't seem aggressive - didn't hear any growling/barking and I saw him walk past a couple…

What are you ideas on how to meet neighbors?

Neighbors,

All the snow this past winter was challenging, but as a community we got through it together. We got through it together because over 1,567 of you volunteered to help shovel out your neighbors in need via Snowcrew.org.

While snowcrew.org is an awesome tool, it does not address the root problem of us not knowing who are our neighbors are. If we all knew our…

Have you seen a black cat??

Our cat ran away yesterday morning from the corner of Carolina and Everett. She is black with a white spot under her chin and one white toe. She is 18 years old and fairly skinny but in good health. She's also not super friendly to strangers but has a very sweet heart. If anyone sees her would you please let me know?
Thanks! Rachel (617-905-4646)

Join the SnowCrew Outreach and OperationsTeam!

Neighbors,

I've been organizing SnowCrew for 4 years now and the last 2 from Washington DC. It's one of my favorite things to do but also can be really hard and stressful especially since I do this in my free time and I have a full time job.

This year we have made two awesome advancements and will be introducing phase 1 of SnowCrew.org in a couple of weeks.

What’s new so far this…
