Meet a Revver: A Rescuer of Dogs in Mexico
From: Canada, but currently lives in Mexico!
Time With Rev: Since 2014
Service Line: Transcription
My name is Kathleen. I am currently in Querétaro, Mexico, but I am originally from Mississauga, Canada. I have been a Revver for, I think, six years. My service line of choice is transcriptions. So I actually started Rev just a part-time job, maybe a job a day. And it was really just to get some extra money. It paid for my lunch every day, which was great. But after, when we moved here to Mexico, I decided to just take it on full time and have a daily goal. And Monday to Friday, I’m working Rev. So with Rev, I’ve decided that I’m going to make at least $50 a day. That’s my daily quota. It’s really a lot of self-discipline, but once you get the hang of it, it goes by really quickly and you have the freedom all day to get to $50. So it’s not a ton of pressure. I don’t set a time limit, like I have to do it from 9:00 to 12:00.
So here in Mexico, there’s a huge problem with the dog population, the stray dog population. There’s actually more stray dogs than people here. So it’s definitely a very big problem. And the first thing I did when we moved here is we started a dog organization, dog rescue organization called Rescat-Aayda-Adopta, which means rescue, aid, adopt. Especially knowing here in Mexico, it’s such a huge problem, I had to do something. I just had to.
Rev is my main source of income. So to get dogs spayed, neutered, vaccinated, fed, water, it costs money. And luckily here in Mexico, it’s actually very cheap. My $50 a day can help two, three dogs get fed, get their vaccines. It’s great. Especially now with COVID-19. So many people are struggling with their jobs and I’ve been doing this full time for two years, that it didn’t affect me at all. Rev has been honestly a lifesaver for me, especially moving here to Mexico, I had no idea what I was going to do. I thought I was just going to have to depend on my husband and Rev has given me this independence that I just really, really needed in my life.
