A bit of a bio

One of our earlier projects was working with the RSPCA on a fostering program to stop the exportation of Beagle puppies to a research laboratory in Sweden. We worked for many years with a British group called Re-homing Animal Telephone Service and fostered many abused animals prior to their adoption.

The first dog we nursed back to health, Amy, was burned badly by its owner who was high on drugs. After many months of intense care, Amy was finally released for adoption, and so started our campaign to help abused animals.

Upon moving to Texas we signed up with Operation Kindness to foster puppies and more recently with Garland based SPIN, (Saving Pyrenees In Need) helping with their fostering and adoption programs of these Gentle Giants.

Knowing that animals are less stressed when they remain in their own environment we formed Critter Sitting Services in 2004 to service those people who did not want to board their pets in kennels or catteries.

We quickly gained a residual clientele of professionals who need service at short notice as well as the many vacationing customers who have taken advantage of the discounts that are offered. It attests to pet sitting professionalism when customers talk about Critter Sitting Services and come back time and again.
