In the Beginning
After over 15 years in corporate tax accounting, the time had finally come to follow my dream of working with animals and doing what I love to do. I needed to feel like I was making a difference in the lives of others. I needed to run with the pack. I needed to roll around on the ground with all types of dogs and get big, wet, slobbery kisses all over my face. So on that cool October day in 2006, I ditched my corporate attire, put on my sneakers and jeans and began to search for furry walking companions.
Club K-9 & Feline Pet Sitting was founded on one primary principle: to provide the finest possible care for dogs. And cats. And the occasional horse, ferret, rabbit, chickens…anything with fur, feathers, fins or scales. While snakes and reptiles are not wholly excluded…they must be of the vegan persuasion.
This is a Veteran owned and operated company. So when I say that honesty and integrity are core values of the business it is rooted in the service to our country.
- Compassion – nurturing tenderness
- Relationships – an authentic kinship with animals
- Accountability – responsible, exceptional service
- Integrity – doing the right thing and always being honest
- Community – giving back
