can keep your pets comfortable at home...
even when you aren't there!

Dogs and cats are creatures of habit. Although our canine and feline family members descended from their “wild” cousins (wolves and lions) and retain many of their characteristics, they are quite attached to you—the pack or pride leader, and their home. So when you are away from them on travel or working late, and they are boarded at a kennel or pet hotel, the two things that give them the most comfort—you and their home—are absent.

FurPals® treats yours as ours, providing loving care in your home while you are away. We are not only professional pet sitters, but also pet owners, so we can relate. In our complimentary initial consultation we meet you and your pet and customize visits that will maximize your pet’s comfort and your value.

The next time you travel or work late, let FurPals® provide special care for your special pet, and become a member of our extended family.
