Dear Fellow Pet Lover,
Welcome to Animal House Pet Care!
We take great pride in providing the very best in personalized, loving care for your precious pets in the comfort, security and familiar surroundings of their own home. We have years of experience with many types of animals, from horses and other farm animals to dogs and cats…… even exotic pets, like snakes, birds, iguanas….and of course pocket pets like hamsters and mice.
Busy families know their pets need and enjoy daily exercise through walking, running or fitness play, but many find it hard to commit to a regular schedule to maintain their pet's fitness level. This is when your professional pet provider can bring a comfortable routine and stability to your pet's needs.
Dogs who love the thrill of adventure especially enjoy our field trips to the beach, park, lagoon, and even to the pet stores for a little “shopping” and play dates with their dog friends.
Whether you use our overnight services, daily visits or pet taxi, your peace of mind is most important to us. We are insured, bonded and pleased to provide references for you from clients who have used our services.
A “get-acquainted” meeting at no charge with one or two of our professional pet care providers is arranged prior to engagement so we can gather important details relating to your pet's needs and customize a care plan.
We invite you to contact Animal House Pet Care with any questions or comments about services available for your pets. We hope you will give us the privilege to serve you and look forward to hearing from you soon.
