The Meet & Greet was very thorough and detailed. I was surprised that my finicky cat came to check the sitter out. Subsequently, a sitter watched my cat over several separate visits, and it was clear through the visit reports that my cat loved the sitter. All the visits were completed having followed my directions & with professionalism. I would highly recommend Paw Pals.
We have used Paw Pals for a number of years now and would highly recommend to anyone looking for help with their pets. Great communication from owner Mary and flexibility to make adjustments in schedule as life changes over time. Have had a consistent set of walkers who have gotten to know our pup and the various walking routes around our neighborhood quite well.
Highly recommend as pet sitters! Initially, a sitter from the company will visit the house to meet the pets and learn where everything is... Each time they check in, we receive an email message with updates and pictures, which is so comforting when we are on the road... If something were to happen I know they would be okay. Five stars for Paw Pals!
i honestly cannot recommend Mary and her crew enough! We started using Mary originally about 7 years when our Aussie Lana was younger. Right before the pandemic, we adopted our second Aussie, Goose, and Mary recommended a fantastic trainer for him. We now have weekly walks for the dogs, and they love all of their walkers! Paw Pals is our go-to for any help with our dogs!
Paw Pals provided a large number of photos of our pets along with a personalized message on how our pets were doing with every single visit. I would highly recommend using Paw Pals, we'll be continuing to use them whenever we go on vacation.
I was thoroughly impressed! I have nothing but great reviews regarding this company. They are very reliable, dependable, thorough. Every walker was thorough in the specifics of what they did and the time in which they did it. I was pleasantly impressed and well assured my little guys were taken good care of. I will certainly use them in the future, and highly recommend them!
We can't rave enough about Paw Pals. They took care of our 18-year-old cat and 20-year-old chinchilla while we were away, and when our flight got cancelled they were so accommodating and available last minute for an extra day. I loved the pictures and updates on how our lil geriatric guys were doing. Thanks a million, Paw Pals!! Our special pets were so well cared for.
I have used Paw Pals for several trips, and they have been phenomenal every time! Mary is extremely kind and responsive, and she makes sure that my cat and dog have the care that they need every time I am out of town. All of the pet sitters that I've had have been incredibly sweet to my pets, and they treat them like their own! Will gladly continue using Paw Pals every time I need a sitter.
Our experience was absolutely amazing! From the amazing communication we had with the Paw Pals team and the cat sitters to the amazing job they did with our cats. One of our cats has always been reluctant to meet new people but after these two weeks she's now the first to greet anyone! And I love the updates with pictures you get after each visit. If you need a cat sitter I'd look no further than Paw Pals.
The best pet sitting in the area so far! The sitters are very professional and they follow your instructions on point. They have been taking care of my Cosmo so well beyond... Cosmo loved them every time they visited him. He is very picky and particular, but he loved the girls. Thank you! I appreciated your work!
Paw Pals has taken amazing care of my cats for several years and have always made me feel comfortable and confident that my kitties would be well cared for! And when my oldest cat needed special TLC which meant multiple visits a day, multiple medicines with special directions and sub-q fluids, Paw Pals took extra special care of her and always kept me informed of how she was doing with every visit! I can’t say enough!
It has been a pleasure doing business with Paw Pals. We have used this company for several trips we have taken. They have been wonderful caretakers for our 2 cats. Anytime there is ever a question they don't hesitate to give us a call and they leave the best notes and pictures in the emailed report of each visit. We are so glad have found such a great company.
Mary at Paw Pals Pet Sitting has been extremely accommodating whenever I need to use her. She is very easy to work with and always leaves notes on her visit. She will even take pictures with her phone and will send them to you while you are away.
We used Paw Pals for a long weekend to watch our dog and 2 cats. We were very happy with the service and all was in order upon our return. Very professional and I appreciated that they were a legitimate company with an organized system of communication.
Wow! Were we lucky to find Paw Pals! We have 3 loving rescue cats who have a great life at home. Mary has an efficient system for getting to know the critters ahead of time, keeps in steady contact with us, is super thorough and writes excellent reports. She’s a godsend, actually.
