Hi Pet Parents!

I know how important it is to find someone who you trust to take care of your pets when you are unable to, and you can be assured that your pets will be well cared for and loved with me. Caring for pets is something that I absolutely love to do and since it is a job for me, you can be sure that I'm going to provide you with the best quality care. My reputation depends on it.

I have 2 dogs of my own that I absolutely adore, a yellow Lab rescue named Paisley and a Beagle mix rescue named Charlie. I found that it was very difficult to find someone...

Hi Pet Parents!

I know how important it is to find someone who you trust to take care of your pets when you are unable to, and you can be assured that your pets will be well cared for and loved with me. Caring for pets is something that I absolutely love to do and since it is a job for me, you can be sure that I'm going to provide you with the best quality care. My reputation depends on it.

I have 2 dogs of my own that I absolutely adore, a yellow Lab rescue named Paisley and a Beagle mix rescue named Charlie. I found that it was very difficult to find someone I trust to care for them, and I didn't want to leave my babies in a kennel, not to mention the price of a kennel for multiple pets can be very high. It made me realize that there are probably many people who have the same problem, so I decided to do something about it!

I am insured, background checked, and have many personal references available upon request. I provide in home care for a variety of pets. I have experience dealing specifically with dogs, cats, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, mice, hamsters, gerbils, bearded dragons, iguanas, fish and snakes. (I don't feed live mice to snakes but am open to frozen mice.)

For occasional jobs such as pet sitting during a trip or long weekend, the charge would be $15 per visit. Each visit lasts 20-25 minutes, sometimes more, depending on what needs to be done. It includes playtime, a short walk, feeding and watering, cleaning out litter boxes, administering medicines, and anything else you might request. Minor house-sitting jobs like watering plans, trash to curb, and paper/mail retrieval are also included. If you are more comfortable with overnight care, I offer that as well. For specific pricing for overnight care, please message me.

I can provide care for anyone within 15 miles of the zip code 78260. If you are outside of that radius, care may still be available, but an extra charge for gas may apply. I also may be able to take a job outside of that area if I already have another one scheduled close by. Simply e-mail for details.

I look forward to providing you with the best quality care available and giving your pets the same love and attention you would. Use my services once, and you will never find yourself worrying about your pets during your vacation again!

Joana T. says:
Lauren was perfect for my needs! She was VERY flexible, quick to respond, super sweet, and very detailed. She understood what it was that I needed, and was there for my babies, and me! She even spent the night with my babies. They love her!

Michael D. says:
Wow!! What a great find in this young lady and her business. Lauren is great at what she does and immediately I could tell she was genuine and sincerely loves animals and her job. It has been a little over a month now and already I can tell a difference in my little buddy and he is genuinely happier when I get home. From getting on the floor and just giving him some love to ensuring his meal time and medicine... More

Peggy B. says:
Lauren is wonderful - I couldn't have been more pleased with our first 'job' together!!! Lauren approaches her jobs as any good business woman does - establish schedule, understand/review the rules, quote the price for service so there are no surprises. I really appreciated her organization and attention.

AND when it came to the "girls" (my dogs), she was absolutely awesome . . . really nice and so kind...

Megan O. says:
Lauren has helped care for my two maltipoo puppies since we got them back in May. I never worry about my pups while I am at work because I know that she will take good care of them! Lauren is very conscientious and always texts me after her daily visit to let me know how the puppies were doing. I have found Lauren to be very trustworthy and dependable.

Lauren has worked for me for just over two months. She walks my dog for me during the week. She is very reliable, and trustworthy. Her rates are very reasonable. I have not had any problems or concerns with her service. I highly recommend her services to anyone.
