Pet Sitting,Dog Walking and Pet Care
On Saturday April 6th, we had the opportunity to give a short presentation to some of the pet owners living in the Pueblo Regent Senior Living Community. About ten residents joined us, most bringing their pets with them. We talked to them about pet care and pet safety in the home with regards to plants, foods and medications as well as safety hazards.
Most agreed that their pets did not get as much exercise living in an apartment as they would like them to have. We were able to explain how our dog walking services might be of a great benefit to them. We also explained how we are able to pick up their pets and transport them to the veterinarian or to a grooming appointment. Many who have no transportation of their own were delighted to hear about this “Pet Taxi” service.
We hope to do some pet sitting for these folks as they begin to make plans for visiting family and friends this summer. They were happy to hear that we will visit their special companions right in their own apartments, rather than placing them in a kennel.
It was a joy to meet each one and hear all about their cat or dog. We talked with them about how much of a difference these companions had made in their lives. We passed out some toys and treats for the pets and left newsletters as well as informational sheets for all of the residents.
We hope to be able to meet with pet owners in several other local Senior Living facilities in the near future !
