After many years working in corporate America, we both were laid off from our jobs with thousands of other folks in 2008. Not knowing if we wanted to continue with our careers or try something different, knowing how much we LOVE animals, a friend suggested we might want to start a pet sitting and dog walking business. Honestly, we didn't know much about the industry. We had friends or relatives take care of our pets when we were away on vacation. But never knew there were companies who actually did this for a living! We were so pumped and excited, we couldn't wait to get started.
We joined two professional organizations (National Association of Professional Pet Sitters and Pet Sitters International). This helped us so much to become educated in our ability to give high-quality care to pets and how to start our own professional pet care company. We opened the "doors" of It's Raining Cats & Dogs just a few weeks after we were laid off and got our first client (who is still with us) just a week after that!
The most important thing we want our clients to know is, we are professionals, this is not a hobby, it is our full-time job and we take it very seriously. Above all, we have a 100% show up rate, which honestly, is a no- brainer for us. Not showing up to care for your pets is NEVER an option. When we hear from new clients, who have used other pet sitters, and the pet sitter didn't show up to care for the animal for 3 days. Or a client came home early from vacation and found their pet sitter and their friends had trashed their home. These are stories we can't hardly put our head around it's so horrific; but unfortunately we hear more of these types of stories then imaginable. We have experienced just about every pet related situation while caring for our client's pets over the last 10 years. We truly do provide the highest quality pet care available in the Palm Beaches. Just take at look at what our clients have to say.
Thank you for considering us to care for your precious babies and we look forward to hearing from you!
