The first step
A meeting in your home is required. It is important to us that we meet you and your pets before a commitment is made. To get started arrange the initial meeting by filling out the contact form on one of our pages on this site or our sister site pawsitivepetcare There is a small refundable fee for meeting us only if a reservation for service is made.
At our introduction - I get to meet your pets and learn about their likes and dislikes. I bring references so you can learn about me too. If you feel that PAPC will be a good fit for your pet sitting needs and choose to use my service there is a form for you to fill out with questions regarding your pet and home.
If a reservation is made for service there is a refundable fee of $10. Please have a copy of your house key ready at our meeting. This saves you the expense and inconvenience of meeting me a second time. (see key return/pick-up fee below)
