Fur Babies

Actively accepting new and returning client reservations.

Background: I have been a pet-owner/lover my entire life. My first job was working at a boarding/ daycare facility and walking puppies. We raised and bred German Shepherds and often had a litter of puppies around. I’ve always had a cat or a dog, or multiples and have extensive experience with senior pets.

My best buddy Jester (pictured here) was with us for 14 wonderful years and crossed the rainbow bridge 8/16/19. The house is quiet without him. We currently have a host of saltwater fish and can care for all kinds of non-furry animals.
