Just Like Home 4 Paws, Our beginning…
I have been a lifelong animal lover. I grew up in a single pet household. However, once I moved out on my own, that all changed. I soon went from a single dog household to a multi-pet household which included 2 dogs and 3 cats. Although it was great having all those furry friends around, I eventually was faced with the enormous challenge of finding quality pet care when it came time to travel. Since none really existed, I was forced to rely on family for all of my pet care needs.
In 2008 I started BEST Pet Sitting & Dog Walking. I realized that other pet families must be faced with this same pet care challenge. In addition to my own pets I took other pets into my home while their owners were away. Once word got out, my business quickly grew. By 2015 I was often reaching capacity and frequently had to turn away families. It was then that I decided that I needed to move my business to a larger space.
In early 2016 I found my new location and we began the process of remodeling it to meet our needs. Just Like Home 4 Paws opened its doors by the end of July of 2016. Since I knew I would need additional help to care for a greater number of pets, I asked the one person who I knew was as passionate about animals as myself to join me. My daughter Lauren accepted. Our goal at Just Like Home 4 Paws is to provide the same quality pet care that my clients have come to expect. Our mission is to make your pet’s experience to be Just Like Home!
